The Moto Moto is the latest battlecruiser from the Space Homeys Interstellar Technologies™.
About this creation
Never before has a compact space ship spread fear among enemies.
Officially named BC – Saligia in the battle fleet, the Moto Moto achieves its deadly firepower and exemplary speed with its compact design.
While the BC class designation stands for Battle Cruiser, it also means Big and Chunky when it comes to this dark force. It packs a punch to say the least.
The Integrated Quantum Singularity Drive and Impulse Engine eliminates the need for multiple engines for different types of space travel.
The unique bridge design allows for a virtually 360-degree view of the battlefield theatre. This ship was built for the Death Guard. The red and white stripes indicate their fleet designation.
The Moto Moto is packed with several types of firepower.
Ion Pulse Cannons
Heavy Ion Cannons
Triple Beam Point Defense Particle Beam Cannons are strategically spread out all over the ship for defensive purposes.
The Shadow Quantum Gravitic Discharge Cannons create beams of coherent gravity waves that tear apart ships at subatomic level.
The main cannon of the Moto Moto is the Boltzmann-Einstein Electromagnetic Field Injection Slicer Cannon, affectionately called the B.E.E.F. Injector among the crew.
It can decimate ships in one, deep penetrating hit. It uses controlled gravimetric waves to create an energy beam that shreds the target. Its reciprocating motion amplifies the waves' transmission energy.
Chaff Throwers launch clouds of chaff around the ship. The chaff are canisters of thousands of small pieces of highly reflective aluminum. The chaff will remain around the ship for a period of time unless the ship accelerates, decelerates, or changes course which will take the ship out of the chaff cloud.

Quoting Alex Fojtik
All the weapons systems are nicely built, but the robo arms for the topside guns are fantastic! You seem to have great success photographing black lego. What kind of (and how many) light do you use?
Two things on this photography: natural light + photo editing software from and old Canon scanner. It has an "auto enhance" feature that gives wonderful results in terms of black/white color balance but greatly degrades the picture. It helps to have a 15.1 megapixel camera. Thanks for the comment!
Oh, how could I miss this?! It is awesome. Love the detailes on the guns and your skills, when it comes to shooting black MOCs! But, are you sure that the long pole at the front doesn´t belong to Phipson? Sorry, I HAD to write this.
Sorry I'm running (WAY) behind on my comments. Great ship here Shifu! Even though it's "chunky" it really has a sleek look to it... does that make sense? Love the skellie feet as guns there too! ~ Chris.
the front design is a bit odd to me, but, the rest of the ship is very nice, the sides especially, i love those big shapes that sculpt the sides, and hide the cannons, the armament is very impressive, and i suppose that it s why the engineers [you] did an obvious bridge, as an act of defiance towards enemies, it s an act of boldness, and it s tacticly sound! as the punishers chest skull, it s like a target! but, no one ever get the chance to even just fire at it! i like it, it s just too bad for the front, but, it s original, and black! good work shifu!
I'm really impressed by the level of details here, and also the great quality of pics ! The various cannons design are all excellent. I really love the textures with the slopes too. The overall proportions are original. Very convincing, nice ship !!!
Dude, really? 'B.E.E.F. Injector'? 'deep pentrating hit'?, 'reciprocating motion'?
Is there something you'd like to talk about? hm? Feeling a bit lonely, are we? hm? Is your Moto Moto on a dry spell maybe? huh? Anywayz..
Great looking ship, I love the engine and the use of those roof tile bricks. And lots of guns!! Oh, and Chaff Throwers launching tiny little white things, now where have I seen that before...? Hmmz...
"Where's the beef?" Oh, wait. There it is. It's the great big thing. Way out on the front, kinda hard to miss.
Anyway, rambling aside, very nice ship, weapons are good, bridge looks kinda high up for my tastes, but other than that, great look to it. Black Mocs always look good.
This ship looks beautiful and threatening at the same time. The level of detail is amazing. My favourite parts are the heavy ion cannons and the ion pulse cannons. The only part that irritates me a bit is the bridge. No engineer would design a battleship with a bridge that obvious, unprotected and easy to destroy. But hey, it's scifi and the whole ship is fantastic!
