Insectoids Attack Pod
Well, finding old and almost forgotten sets can be inspiring... I found a box in my garage containing three Insectoid sets released in 1998, I remember buying them on a sale. The sets were 6909, 6919 and 6977. This MOC is solely built with pieces from these sets except the discs taken from the Droid Tank and the main cannons. I'm not sure about TLC's intention for the Insectoids, but in my world they are a race of Cyborgs, created by man for slavery purposes. After an uprising, they broke free and made it their main object to destroy mankind... (like the Replicants if you have seen the film). I'd like to pay homage to mr Steef de Prouw for the general idea for this pod, thank you.
About this creation











The cockpit. The pilot is an Insectoid Commander.


The heart of the ship: A power crystal providing the pod with...well, power.

An Insectoid Drone heavily armed.


Edit: The gathering. The enemies of mankind seem to bond. Evil times ahead...

Thanks for watching...

That is a nice little fighter that you got there, Marcus. Anyway, you are right, there is not much love for the Insectoids on LEGO websites such as this one.

There's a simple elegance that I like, cool cockpit design and the way it captures the Insectoids feel is great! Nice work.

Nice one! I like your use of pieces. I've never seen those insectoid sets. Looks like there are some interesting pieces in there.

That's a well-designed pod, and it's good to see the Insectoids theme getting some attention.
