With Tears of the Kingdom now having arrived, the lucky Legend of Zelda fans who didn’t have prior commitments have spent the majority of the last few days relentlessly exploring the picturesque plains of Hyrule.

Regardless of how you chose to pass the time while waiting for Nintendo’s latest release to drop or what you’ve thought of the overall experience it offers so far, odds are the array of Fuse-compatible items and interesting activities on offer will keep you entertained for a good while.

While some have been busy cowering from Gloom Hands, lots of players seem to have been dedicating the majority of their time with the game so far to building and sharing everything from autonomous attack drones to working lawnmowers, with the latest batch of creations including a machine capable of performing some pretty killer stunts.

Which of the many Tears of the Kingdom builds to hit social media so far do you find the most impressive?

The first of this recent group of contraptions to be posted on r/HyruleEngineering is an imposing off-road truck, dubbed the: “Korok Motors F-150 Hydraulic 4x4.”

While many of the Hylian engineers in the thread enjoyed the fact its driver had accidentally lost control of the truck near the end of the video they'd shared and had to bail out of the truck as it flipped over a cliff, some were more interested in the item used to construct its beefy suspension.

“You’re the first person I’ve seen to make use of the springs as shocks. Love this,” said user Maddie24Kennedy, before asking where to find stone slabs, which prompted the truck’s creator to reveal: “Everything you need to make this minus the springs is in Tarrey Town!”

Meanwhile, user Undeity suggested: “You could probably stop it from flipping over with clever use of some wagon wheels to create a ball joint, as the base for a stabiliser,” to which the 4x4 driver replied: “That's a good idea, the reason it flipped here was (just) driver error (to be honest).”

For those who aren’t fans of off-road antics, some other recent additions to the build-focused subreddit include user B1orpgoo’s rather impressive two-wheeled mech and Akario_’s amazing flying battleship, dubbed “The Worldbreaker I", which you can watch take to the skies in the clip below.
