5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a tank you can trust, December 1, 2005
By Thomas Dunham "Los Pepes" (Catonsville, Maryland United States) - See all my reviews
I'll admit it. Shopping for a personal tank can be a bit daunting. Many times in the past I've purchased overpriced, so-called "battle tanks", then driven them into battle only to be wrecked in ten minutes by the first blow off of some insurgents home-made morter.

But not this baby, no way.

This tank R-O-C-K-S! Literally- the 400-watt sound-system keeps me rockin like a crazy man as I'm dishing out justice commando style. Wow. I just can't say enough. And the kids love it, too- imagine the look of terror in the eyes of the enemy as I'm dropping off my kid's team to their soccer game. Shock and awe, my friends, SHOCK AND AWE!

I had NAO install the optional GPS-guided white phosphorus missile system, and talk about *SWEET*! Burn baby burn!!!

Oh, it also has plenty of room for groceries, and if you need to like move a loveseat or something it'll fit if you use a little bungee cord.

The only real negative with this tank is that it shows up on radar a little more than I like (although there is a polyresin graphite stealth model available). Also, the included spare isn't full size.

Overall, a great tank.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint of heart or small children..., January 18, 2008
When I first saw this awesome war machine, I knew that I had to have one. So I sold the VW Microbus and put down a deposit post haste. My wife thought that I was crazy but that is her job. Taking advantage of Amazon's Supersaver shipping rates, the Badonkadonk arrived in 3,4,5 and 6 weeks. I was previously unaware that UPS delivered by mule and wagon.

There was an ample supply of duct tape and shingle nails provided for the final assembly. I opted for the shag carpeting and the "They hate us for our freedom" series waterboard for prisoner interrogation or wayward crew members. The lava lamps, blacklights and Jimi Hendrix posters brought the interior to life.

The ones for the Relaxman are just as funny. Here are a couple:

One drawback, when it was delivered the capsule had no bolt on the outside. But I'm handy, so I installed one.

I have been locking the wife and kids into the chamber from 7pm to 7am every evening, and boy am I relaxed. This really works.


I ordered one of these assuming, obviously, that in the vein of similarly named "-man" products, portability would be its chief component. Walkman, Discman, etc, all distinguish themselves from other identical products by the fact that they are portable and can be carried and used anywhere. I felt some suspicion when the crate arrived in a semi truck and required two men and a hydraulic liftgate to unload it on the patio next to my Fuller dome. Sure enough, when I finished bagging up the last of the 20 cubic yards of foam packing peanuts and took the time to closely examine the machine it was clear it would not easily clip to my belt or swing suspended around my neck by a lanyard. What a disappointment! I'm often struck by the urge for complete relaxation when traveling, commuting to work, or competing in the Extreme Fighting championship. Now that sweet escape from the brutal trials of life will have to wait until I've landed my autogyro in the backyard and hunkered down in this oversized coffin: the deceptively named "Relaxman".
