Not mine, but here is a transforming hexapod: http://zentasrobots.com/robot-projects/morphex-mkiii/

Someone should try and make this in Rawbots.

Building a folding hexapod should be possible, but getting things to walk in rawbots tends to be very tricky.

LOL, I'm thinking to myself "well that would be practically impossible! it could never be done!"

Then there is marvin "eh, it would be kinda tricky"
At the end of the day, love conquerors all.

Just getting the thing to walk is certainly possible, but making it even remotely fast or smooth is an entirely different story.

Look at the spider tank- that was about the right size and could walk slowly. All it would need is a bit of modification to the end leg sections to turn them into sphere segments so it could fold into something resembling a ball. If anything, 6 legs would be less code to wrangle and less lag than 8.
