Looks like 2 tanks having a great time playing, or a scene from BattleBots on Discovery. Nowhere here is it clear that these tanks are 'turning against us' - they could be here to protect us, from all the picture shows: there is no 'other side' shown here, which is why it fails. |Must've been a lot of fun to make though.

If it's turning against us, why then would they show tanks that would protect us?

All I can see is 2 tanks. I can't see any turning going on. And I don't know where I am in the picture - it looks like a tank dance to me.

Yeah you're right. They look kind of A.I. uncontrolled. Guess people recycle computers nowadays, which is a good thing if you think about it.

Good visual but abused concept.

The idea of trash becoming a menace, while not new, is interesting. Sadly, I think the visuals are not "trashy" enough, so the idea gets lost...

i agree whit you. I think art made a mistake by not making a real menace.

Looks like one of those GI-Joe toy commercial sets

Good concept... Way to exaggerated. Why does everyone think that dramatizing a simple idea would take it leagues higher? Simple ideas are more appealing. It is just boiling down to how loud one can think!!! At least it is not appealing to me!

And then GOD said...
Let there be creativity!!!

The problem seems as simple as taking out one tank, so they're not dancing, and making the tank look more as if it is really wrought from garbage, and less like a discarded toy. It could have worked without reinventing the wheel, i.m.o.

Like them, but I´d need more obvious trash

The idea is good, but it took me a while to realize which side those tanks are fighting for. You should keep it simpler, people have to get your message at first sight, they shouldn't get past it too easily.

Keep the city clean with garbage removal nj!
