Motorized Mech
This Mech has 4 motorized functions - top half turns side to side, flashing lights in the forward gun barrels simulate laser fire, missle doors open & close, and fire 6 missles (2 at a time). Non motorized functions include: cockpit opens, sliding doors on top reveal vertical launch missles that can be raised to simulate pre launch.
About this creation
This mech is about 16 inches tall and is REALLY heavy. It has 2 mini-fig pilots and I used storm troopers because they are just plain cool.
This one was a hard build that I thought about scraping several times. Anyone who has attempted the hybrid of LEGO & Technic LEGO could understand my frustation in trying to make all those motor functions work.



If the YouTube video does not play, click here: YouTube Motorized Mech





























In this picture, my finger is on the lever that raises the vertical launch missles. There are 2 levers, side by side, so the missles can be manually raised separately or together.












Here are some early shots as I was starting to build. I actually changed some things around with the way the motor works for the torso. I finally eliminated all those mess of gears after several attempts of trying to attain the right speed settings for the torso to move back & forth.

I love that you went the extra mile on all the functional aspects. The missile bays opening up and popping up made my jaw hit the floor. That's the kind of stuff I'd love to incorporate in my stuff but always end up getting too lazy or running into too many size constraints or just plain lack the skill to pull off. Awesome mech!

I would have made it walk if possible but on two legs makes for some serious balance issues

One of the coolest mech's I've ever seen! In reponse to Dax's comment, it's very diffucult to create a walking motion with Lego builds. The motorized AT-AT walker looks like its drunk when it walks.

Yeah, I can see how that might be necessary with all that weight swinging around. This thing would be an absolute blast at a convention, suddenly coming to life and firing into the crowdÖ;-)

Quoting Brian Kescenovitz Wow, this really is outstanding. Besides the motorized aspect (which is an amazing accomplishment) the mech just looks great! So huge, but still so much style and detail. I really like those vertical missile launchers on the back. The whole thing is so well done in fact, I almost hate to mention that, unless Iím missing something, the entire bottom half is basically static, and cannot be posed to any significant degree and still support itís own weight. Of course I could be wrong, but the lack of a picture demonstrating that functionality leads me to believe itís true, The simple fact is that itís much easier to make huge mechs with awesome looking legs when they donít have to move. Itís the Achilles heel of so many big mechs, and Iíve called so many people out on it, that I could not, in good conscience, let it go here. But obviously, this is only one personís crotchety opinion. Please, feel free to ignore it, secure in the knowledge that this mech is the very definition of the word epic. A truly amazing MOC.
Yes the bottom half is static. I had to make the legs as rigid as possible because of the force generated by the top half moving side to side. The legs also had to be heavy to compensate the force.

Oh man, this is really neat! I know your pain, TRUST me. Wow, that video caught us off gaurd! LOL Perfect! I like your construction too. Looks great. ---you are right, it probably is really heavy. The fact that is stands on its own and moves like that is a sign of good construction. Bravo!

This is the sort of thing that makes me giggle because it's so cool. Though the top half is a little blocky it's very well done, and you incorporated all those functions very well.

Really an awesome design! It would be better if the legs could move (that would bring it to the level of Undeniably Epic) but the power functions keep it even. Awesome man.

This is, quite simply, stunning. The fact that it not only is motorized but is motorized at the cost of nothing is amazing, and the design and color scheme for the rest of the mech is great as well. I've tried to make motorized mecha before (and will soon again), and it is HARD! On the subject of waking, was it something you considered? Especially with a biped, getting the weight to balance between steps is very difficult. Eventually, I plan to motorize a sentaped (is this even a word?) mecha-tank, so this is great as inspiration. Great job!
