“Not far off the Somali coast one of the big Vestel cargo vessels is taken over by pirates! Within a split of a second the ship has a new captain, the soup is gone as well as the cargo itself. Will our Vestrons be able to strike back?”

 ... because all the white goods they were looking for, actually climbed out as pretty big robots.

Thanks you two guys, for the good feedback! It was really fun doing this one… ok, except the crowd-shots. A shot with 200 characters, doesn’t multiply the fun animating by 200, does it?

@Harun: Yeah… I expected more posts myself and started wondering: did people just get lazy posting, or did I just put my thread in the wrong sub-forum? :wink:
