Greetings yet again! I have another creation to share with you after MOCPages went down for a few days. This is my self-mech, complete with colors that were particularly eye-catching(me) and accepted only out of necessity(also me). It comes jam-packed with features, including but not limited to:
~A head that can't turn
~A mini-gun that can't be aimed very well
~A hand hidden behind a shield that can't hold much
~And a body that will break apart at the slightest sign of use.
But enough about the amazing features of this beautiful creation! Let's get into the less exciting parts:
The head opens up to reveal room for a minifigure inside. This minifig happens to be my generic sig-fig. A more dashing one is included with my Mega-Vehicle(Mk II in the works!).
Here's a closer look at my sig-fig. He's got a cool blaster, I think. This also gives you an idea of scale.
The mech comes equipped with a low-level neutrino emitting shield(the glowy part). it is very useful for holding mech-top barbecues, as it gives a place for a picnic table.
Here's a shot of the back of the mech. He comes with a jetpack and shoulder-mounted gun capable of burning enemies to little piles of plastic and spinning menacingly, respectively.
A closer look at the machine gun. There's a little knob on the side that would spin the gun if you could convince some poor fool to strap himself onto it and turn it while the mech is running into a pitched battle full of anti-mech ground-to-air missile turrets. But I digress...
All right, generic sig-fig, get in the mech and we'll test this baby out. Unfortunately, Al could not join us today; he's still being reassembled from his last game of chicken with a missile.
A semi-glorious shot of the mech holding its sword forward, spurring imaginary troops into battle. Onward!
Fending off an attack from an imaginary mech or someone's foot. Take your pick.
We're also auditioning this thing for the new Mister Mech-yagi in the Karate Kid reboot coming in 2020: Karate Machine. Get your tickets now, because it's sure to be cancelled before the week is out!
The mech thanks you for our time. In the next frame, it falls over, but I decided I'd salvage whatever dignity it could be presumptuous enough to say it has left and deleted it.
And, as a a blooper, the original mech I skeletonized for ball-and-socket joints and replaced with hinge joints. I also gave it a mini-gun to compensate. Reminiscent of an AT-RT, no?
Anyway, that's all I've got forya. Thanks for reading through, and be ready for more creations in the coming weeks!
I love the self-depreciation! And as someone who works with limited resources when building with real bricks myself, I empathize wholly with the 'out of necessity' part and find that you did excellent given your circumstances!
