R-5 "Grunt" Boom Loader Mech
About this creation
Nothing too special, just a support mech working behind the scenes. This is my entry for the Civilian Mecha Contest at Mecha Hub. It's also a diversion for my upcoming MOC, which will be epic.

I built this rather quickly.

A mech without guns just isn't as appealing...

Did I mention that minifig is my sig fig?

Big blue box.

What's in the box?

Very cool, I really like the legs. The name and the front reminds me on brians mech. You should build more grey than white mechs.

I'm glad to see a pallet jack mech, was worried no one was going to use that idea. now for that Wally's World 3000... ;)

This little guy has some nice details, like the wheel-guards/mud-flaps, and it looks like it'd be pretty functional in a work environment, though the pilot would definitely need a roll cage. Also, whenever I look up I run into telephone poles.

What is wrong with society?! Have people completely lost the right to acknowledge their own talent without being accused of bragging?! I've seriously had enough to hear with this. People NEED to learn the difference between self-esteem and arrogance. Bragging is saying, "I'm the best! I'm better than you, so sck it!" There's nothing wrong with complimenting yourself if you're not rude about it. For example, it's perfectly reasonable to say, "I'm a great builder, and my mechas are nice and stable." But now people are so blind that they mix someone's self-honesty with arrogance. That goes for you Areetsa. Dali never bragged, he just said his mechas are stable. Where did you find the smallest hint of bragging?!

Quoting Areetsa C And you say / act(ed) high and mighty without offering constructive suggestions. If anyone needs to rework their attitude, it's YOU. I might suggest not saying anything more than 'nice work' on a review of someone's moc unless you can think up a way to improve it. I looked through that page; guess what I found? Not a single suggestion from Mr Zheng regarding improvements. From my perspective, first post was a blatant advertisment, rest of them weren't much better. You may as well not have commented, nothing of value would have been lost. I don't care if you were provoked, because if you can't act sensible on the page of someone you don't actually like you need to rework your methods.
First post was a response to his statement that my mecha is unstable, and I said that his mech needs work. That was all I said at first. However, he senselessly kept provoking me. Some people have too much time on their hands and have nothing better to do than harass Lego builders online. Since you are the only one siding with him and if my assumptions are correct, then you, Areetsa, are "teh teabagger."

Quoting Dali Zheng Your criticism is vapid and baseless. Everyone has their own opinions, but when you slander me without offering any constructive criticism, that's crossing the line. Just give up and leave MOCpages

Quoting Dali Zheng I started building Venus Gospel without reference to anything. I aimed to create a smooth looking original mecha. Sure it's a mecha with anime proportions, but my technique is really nothing like either Moko or Izzo. The shoulders, jets, feet, and head I think are particularly original. Building smooth, curvy things is my strength, which is what my style focuses on. I think you should try something original without looking at anything rather than taking izzo's style and changing a few things.
I made the Bayonet without looking at Izzo's mecha. That mecha shows some Phongness. Most of my older mechas were made W/O reference. I'll make some new mechas w/o looking at Izzo's, and I'll also edit the Revelation w/o seeing Izzo's. Also, building with tiles and cheese slopes is my specialty. This mechas shoulders, feet, and head are also original. Same with the Ruiz. The Bayonet however was completely 100% original. Perhaps I shouldn't even call it Izzo style other than the basic joint techniques.
  May 7, 2009
Sure I look up to Izzo, but I will not follow him forever. His style is a stepping stone. I'm just developing my own style. I need time and parts. However, like I said, I have always built using techniques similar to Izzo's before I even discovered him. Therefore, Izzo style and my style are inevitably similar. I am about to tweak my style a bit and show more Phongness, but I need the parts. Also, re-read the comment below, because I think you missed some important things. Your style is also like a mixture between Moko and Izzo. It's not totally original, but you make it your own. My style will mix Izzo style and my own new style. It'll be a mixture of round parts, tiles, and cheese parts as well as Izzo's joint system, because that's stable and functional. Cheese and tiles have always been my style before seeing Izzo, but if you want me to change it around, I'll also add in round parts. I'm also gonna experiment with other things.

Quoting Phong Chang I have also mentioned that I will create my own style. Right now I'm using Izzo style as a stepping stone to find my own ways. Infact, you're mechas remind me of Izzo's but with a Mokoish twist. My mechas have small twists here and there. For the most part, the things that make my mechas Izzo-style are the joints. I create my own frames and I used tiles and cheese-slopes long before I discovered Izzo. However, I have made a PIB order that will have round parts too, so I'll be able to twist Izzo-style even more. The problem is, both me and Izzo use similar techniques with armoring, which makes meg look unoriinal. However, I have always used those techniques. That means I just think alike with Izzo. However, I plan on editing V.3 of the Revelation to reveal Phong style. It'll mix Izzo's and my own new ideas. It'll still look Izzoish though, but that's because part of my style has always been Izzo-style, but you still should be able to see some Phongness in there. Keep in mind that Phong style isn't fully developed.
I don't know man. If you keep looking up to Izzo, you'll never be as good as him. Izzo is original and he has a lot of great ideas. If you're just going to follow him he'll always be a step ahead of you. Start thinking about what your original builds are going to be like.
  May 7, 2009
Quoting Dali Zheng hey phong, teh teabagger does have a point. I've been telling you for a while that you should establish your own original building style rather than just trying to emulate izzo. Also don't mention me in your arguments, you're just making me look bad. I never claimed to be a better builder than anyone else.

the legs make it look like it has to waddle to move, and with a load it might fall over or something... splatter!

BTW: When I kept bringing up TTGL in the chat, I was messing with you in retaliation for joking with me. I didn't expect you to start liking the show less because I was rubbing it in your face for LOLz. You shouldn't let your opinion drop just because of my actions. It doesn't change the show. It makes me feel guilty and responsible as if I just made you lack interest in something you loved. Make your decisions on your impression of the show, not on how much I talk about it and mess with you. Also: When I bring it up everywhere else, it's because I want to get as many people in MOCpages to see it and increase the Dai Gurren Dan group's population. I also want to show people the EPICness! Not to mention showing those Narutards, Bleach fans, DBZ fans, and Gundam fans what true EPIC anime is. It bugs me when I see people ranting over medieocre anime and acting as if it's the best. Now with TTGL, it's a different story, because TTGL is actually one of the best,(The best in my opinion) so then people have the right to rant. Plus I just like messing with Narutards. They get soo defensive!

Quoting Phong Chang Nice, reminds me of Brian's a lot. PS: Apparently Izzo must have had more mechas, but his Brick Shelf folders were deleted. I haven't seen anything new from him for a long time. Do you think he called it quits?
Hmm. izzo hasn't put anything new up in a while. I think most of his brick shelf folders are still online though.

Quoting Michael Rutherford I like the three wheel deal. Can the forks sit flat on the ground? It looks front heavy. Is it stable all the way through the upward arc of the forks when loaded? It's like Kescenovits lifter on steroids! Attack!
The forks can sit flat on the ground, but I added a plate on the bottom of the forklift for extra stability. It is stable when I add a magnet underneath it as a counterweight but for photographic purposes I left it out.

Quoting Andreas Höttler Your onw style mixed with the Kescenovitz-style, great work Dali, but my only suggestion is to make the back a bit longer.
Thanks, I would have made the back longer if it had 4 legs instead of 3.
Quoting John Moffat I take it this came from Brian's?
I was influenced by Brian. I was going to make this a crane mech but then I saw Brian's boom loader and I wanted to make one.
Quoting Toby Heinemann Nice! I like how it looks bulky, yet somehow sleek at the same time. Great work Dali, and a good entry for the CMC. To stay true to the spirit of the contest I've made a new entry, to fit in a different category. It has already been photographed, and should be up soon, if you were wondering. Anyways, great job here!
This is one of the most "different" builds I've done in a while. I don't think it came out as I intended since I built it quickly in one try without rebuilding anything. I just aimed to make something that is true to the contest and this is the result. I might make another entry, though.

Eh, I don't have any better minifig heads so I just used the default one.
Quoting Commander Faelo It's not your best work but it's still pretty good.
It's hard making a good mech without weapons. My upcoming MOC will be epic.
