MALLUM-AMRR-049 "Herakles"
A CMC entry, for the land, unmanned categories. A heavy load lifting civilian mecha created by CFS to aid in repair and other industrial applications.
About this creation
The MALLUM-AMRR-049 "Herakles" (Mechanically Assisted Load Lifting Utility Mechanoid, Autonomous Multi-Role Repair, Model no. 49) is an industrial-use mech developed by CFS' civilian researches department to aid in construction, mining, repair and other manual labor tasks in an atmosphere.

The mecha is named for it's incredible strength and proficiency in a wide variety of tasks, due to the modular nature of it's payload area. The rear of the mech can be fitted with any number of interchangeable 'modules' to be suited for different tasks. Though the most popular of these are the high strength pressurized containment cell and the flatbed variant, there are several other devices created by the Department of Municipal Affairs (DMA) to aid in other types of tasks. The overwhelming popularity of these two types, however, has caused them to be the accessories the mech is sold with stock.

The pressurized containment cell is made of highly thick armor plating, and can be fitted with an emergency failsafe system that will destroy it's contents if the materials transported are of great value. Though originally a military-grade storage module, it has been adapted for civilian use and now is frequently found on Herakles models outfitted for mining, as it is capable of securely carrying heavy loads under constant pressure until they can be shipped. This module also has interchangeable inserts to allow an even greater degree of modularity.

The flatbed variant is simply for the transport of large or unwieldy cargo, and is optimized for brute carrying strength. One Herakles mecha is capable of carting easily more than twenty tonnes of oversized material, due to their incredibly powerful and stable drivetrain.

The mecha itself comes preloaded with various maintenance subroutines, and it's long, dexterous arms are capable of delivering enough force to heft a 2000 kilogram container or as subtle a push as not to even crush an insect. They are also extremely high-precision, so that they can be used in repair scenarios. The unusual placement of the arm joints allows the mecha's 'hands' to bend at angles around tight corners to beter reach repair objectives. In addition, the mecha's CPU has various 'drop-in' programming modules that contain detailed subroutines for differing tasks.

Armament:
N/A

Statistics:
Max Groundspeed: 37k/ph
Armor Density: 867j/cm
Fuel: 420 hours continuous operation





A very fun, very quick build, total time under three hours. Made in response to Dali Zheng's Maintenance Mecha, and also inspired by Izmojuki. For the CMC.

Quoting Dali Zheng http://i40.tinypic.com/dxxpxw.jpg setworthy?
H___ YES. I'd buy three of 'em, depending on pricing. I love the design, as I said before, and by buying a couple spares I'd get more of these great parts that I can't order off Bricklink right now (I told you about the summer thing in chat, right?).

Quoting Andreas Höttler Hey, I just noticed that I hadn´t commented on this...I was so sure that I had... However, really nice work, my favorite part is the use of a sword at the 2 legs(?). Like always very detailed and creative work.
Thanks Andreas! The use of sabers as leg (yes) joints just came so naturally for no apparent reason. It also adds some neat little details to the sides of the legs, which are otherwise very boring. The only problem is that it's a weird joint to pull off, because it needs a little bracing. As for you not commenting earlier-- Don't sweat it. I don't come onto MOCpages to get attention (though it's quite nice =]), and you may actually have left a comment that never went through. I once waited a week for a comment to post here, and once one never did, because the system is somewhat... off... Thanks again!

Quoting Uspez Morbo Overall very cool but the treads really steal the show for me! Nice work, violent machines are a lot easier to think of and build than civilian stuff like this so nicely done.
Dontcha just love parallelogram treads? The frame for those is so simple, but it was actually very hard to conceptualize how to build it with the right amount of space between each wheel to let it roll around freely while being so narrow. Anyways, thanks!

Quoting Sterling Knight Hey, just wondering, are you still participating in S.N.O.T.'s interior contest? I'm just squaring off who's entering. ;) ~S.K.
No, I don't think so. Sorry.

I don't know why, but the distinct shape gave me the giggles. It looks good, but somehow hilarious too.

Quoting Knoll grey it is also shown in the intro fighting the blue tachikomas, so if you have seen the show, you have seen it.
I haven't seen the show for two years. I actually watched it just because of the thing you're talking about, though, because the first time it came on on adult swim I watched the intro to get a feel for the concept. I loved the entire idea, and liked every episode I saw, but I could never make a habit out of it. So yeah, I know the thing you're talking about, but it was never featured in any of the episodes I saw.

Quoting Knoll grey the white tank ones from the last episode of "Stand Alone Complex" is my favorite of all the Tachikomas
I never made it that far into the series, unfortunately. I did see a couple episodes involving the military tank versions, though, so I MAY know what you're talking about.

Quoting Knoll grey reminds me of a "Ghost in the Shell" Tachikoma
I'd think of it more like one of the larger, military ones in shape, but aside from that, I see where you're coming from. It's just a tad too industrial to call it a Tachi, and it has three legs, not four. Thanks though!

Mostly pretty nice, especially the threads in the back! Legs are little too greebly, like Dali said.

Quoting Dali Zheng ha. the only mech I've built which I consider feminine is Venus Gospel. Anyways, do an underpants shot.
Wow, you and Phong and your 'Toboner' thing... (no, I didn't notice that before, I just replied after reading your commment). I will...eventually... I'm doing homework now.

Quoting Dali Zheng you should definitely take a panty shot of this mech.
If you insist on it, fine. So awkward, because I consider this one distinctly masculine...

yeah. I like my fighters bulky and intimidating, but mechs I like 'em smooth and curvy.
Quoting Toboner Heinemann The legs and body have a fully detailed underside, too, it's just exceptionally difficult to photograph that.

Quoting Dali Zheng I would say that the legs are a bit over-greebled. I like my mechs like I like my women: smooth and curvy. bwahahahaha
LOL. Ironically, you said the very opposite on your fighter... But, as for this thing here-- The legs and body have a fully detailed underside, too, it's just exceptionally difficult to photograph that. Over-greeblage FTW!

Quoting Dali Zheng Oh dang, this is awesome. I must say you really have your own building style. My only suggestion would be to make the legs in front look a bit cleaner. I wouldn't be surprised if this is the winner of land unmanned.
Cleaner!? HOW DO YOU MEEEEAN?--JK. Thank you very, very much, especially since your entry is so awesome already. I tend to over-greeble things, so that's probably throwing you off. One part of this I'm particularly happy with, though, is how the front legs ended up fitting together, so don't expect that to change unless there's something that bugs you in particular.
