View Full Version : Mini Crate Mold Destruction Ideas

08-24-2017, 05:34 PM
One of the recent Insiders mentioned that each mold for Mini Crate models will be destroyed after the production run is done. PP also stated that they would be taking suggestions as to how they should destroy the molds. So, after talking with Dave (Mod_Dvandom), it was decided that this will be the new home for everyone's destructive impulses toward those hollow silicone blocks.

Have fun. Any suggestions are fair game, provided they don't pose an immediate threat to the team, the planet, or existence as we know it.

A couple first thoughts:

Liquid Nitrogen + Sledgehammer

Wood Chipper

Flamethrower (totally legal, except in California...)

Can the silicone be melted down in a cauldron and made into tons of shredders?

Put them in the ring with these guys: http://www.robotwars.tv Seems somehow fitting.

Would be neat to see the mold placed on a really hot surface and slowly melt. (Perhaps a timelapse would be necessary).

Fill it up with (Meno-)thermite and burn it!

Well, if anything, this lets me know that the models won't be PVC plastic. Hurray for that.

My suggestion is a 12 gauge of bird shot. Burning would be fun, but it will burn black and smell awful. No one wants that. Maybe send one to the dude on youtube that puts stuff under a hydraulic press.

Pack em with tanerite. Shoot a 50 Cal at them and enjoy the explosion

I actually was thinking of a good thematic way to end their lives. Here's the best faction specific ways I can come up with:

Khador - liquid nitrogen + claw hammer
Menoth - fire (duh)
Cryx - Fluoric acid
Cygnar - shotgun shell (Alternatively you could always get a high farad capacitor, charge that sucker up and put one of the molds in line with it when it discharges. Basically fry it with lightning in a bottle.)
Trolls - Hydraulic press
Skorne - Blender

see if a waste facility near them has an industrial shredder?

I wonder if Arnold still crushes things with his tank...

Possibly an industrial laser, plasma table, or a waterjet cutter...

There's always the youtube classics: white hot ball of nickel and high end blenders.

Just watched the first "destruction" of the Swamp Siren mold. That hardly qualifies an entombed in concrete. Ship me that block and I'll entomb it in concrete.
