Well, looks like we're deviating from the plan again. Nothing really exciting here, just an update to a previous MOC and a couple of small experimental builds, along with a Joke MOC. Let's start with that last one!
'10 Good Guy
Now on to the serious stuff.
This is a spaceship I made; one of the few times I've really used much from the traditional System; about half of the pieces here are borrowed from my brother's Ninjago sets.
Bottom is pretty flat, but I want to point out the use of the triangular pieces.
Some further views of the exterior. I'm pretty happy with how the front turned out.
And here's the moment of truth. The whole thing opens up into "Battle Mode," focused more on offense than maneuverability. The hyperdrive engine can still be used for last-ditch escapes, but it isn't reccomended.
Fun fact: the only place I used actual turntable pieces was for the swiveling cannons up top. The main folding function is acheived solely through a number of plates stacked up on the corners. The overall build is incredibly dense, too.
So next up is a Constraction/Technic mech that I call BM01. The reasoning behind the name shall be revealed in due time.
One could even say... "the knowing will come."
Side and back views.
What could possibly ride in such a strange cockpit as this? Well, whatever it was, this cockpit was the basis around which the rest of the mech was built. Also note how the shoulder liftarms can click onto the main body.
When they aren't, said body can lift out entirely...
...and transform into a hovercraft!
Now, what's with the name? Who or what is intended to drive this thing?
Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to Breezie Mech 01; BM01 for short.
Again, the whole mech was built around this. Silly? Yes. Interesting unconventional experiment? Also yes.
...Just gonna let this one speak for itself.
Finally, update time! I wanted to get your opinions on these, thus why I put it last - otherwise the Breezie Mech would likely overshadow this.
Replace the light grey pieces with black or dark grey where possible
Replace trans-green with gold or black: EXPERIMENTING
Replace head with nuurakh head
Replace neck with socket and friction joint: DONE! (Sorry, Onua, but you were only using the one arm for your hammer anyway.)
Improve skirt: DONE!
Complete the shoulder that was missing a System grille piece: DONE!
Add eyes: DONE!
So, yeah. I would have preferred to have something darker to use for the eyes, but I don't know if that spike piece comes in Mata Green. Does the neck look better, or a bit too stumpy now? And possibly the most important; does adding a bit more trans-green (to the thighs in case you missed it) help even things out a bit more, or does it still look worse than Galidor to you?
Next Time: We get back on track, hopefully.
