RWBY: The Crescent Rose

So one day I decided to build a functional recreation of Ruby's sniper scythe mainly because it's one of the coolest weapons ever. The results were meh, so after a month or two I rebuilt it with a missile launcher in the middle and produced this. :stuck_out_tongue:

No, I don't plan on building a Toa Ruby anytime soon, my self MOC will have to do. :stuck_out_tongue:

IT IS AMAZING I have wanted to build something like this forever. Please make instructions

my only complaint is that it's sniper mode looks more like a heavy canon than a sniper

Yeah, it's a pity Legos don't work properly with anime physics. :stuck_out_tongue: I pretty much just cared about function on this model, hence why the colors are all off.

Aside from the obsess amount of blue pins/axles, the reputation is pretty good for a technic perspective-

That is a snazzy bit of engineering. Great work.

Holy carp! It's beautiful!

Can we get a "how to" on this ASAP???

I know absolutely nothing about RWYB, but this thing looks super snazzy. A how-to would be most welcome.

Also that gif is great for displaying the functionality.

It's also a gun.

Neither do I.

Not seeing too much sniper in the sniper form but other wise this is really good and the transforming mechanism is great.

I'm very impressed, not just with the accuracy but the fluidity and engineering of the function.

Wachting the show it is one YouTube, you will see it then.

I mean

It's close. Not exact, but close.

Yeahhh you can tell what I prioritized rather easily... :stuck_out_tongue:

There's some really nice engineering going on, I'm really quite impressed. :stuck_out_tongue:

This is cool, reminds me of the switch axe from the monster hunter series :+1:

Looks really nice

Thanks! I plan on becoming an engineer when I grow up, so building this kind of Bionicle weaponry is rather fun to me. :stuck_out_tongue:
