The Kraken
This ship started off life as a mental checklist, believe it or not. First, i wanted to use the wheel technique i used in Throttle again...CHECK! Second, I wanted to build an asymmetric ship...CHECK! Third, I wanted to use my new dark blue parts...CHECK! And finally, i wanted to build a ship that looks awesome and also looks hilarious...CHECK! So, if i go by the list, this moc is already a success! It is 9" tall, 12" wide, and 13" long. It took two days to build and contains --BLANK-- pieces (i honestly have no clue how many pieces are in this thing). Anyway, i hope you all like it :)
About this creation

This ship is not at minifig scale but i thought i should include a picture of the ship with a minifigure, just so you can see hw big the ship really is.


Side.


Back.


The other side.


Here we have the cockpit.


The side of the pod.


Back of the pod. The trusters here are to aid steering and act as the engines for the pod when it is used as an escape pod. I completely forgot to add a way to detach the pod form the engine, so you'll have to use your imagination.. Sorry!


This is one of the three mini turbolasers on this ship.


The pilot's seat.


As you can see here, this ship is not minifig scale. It's closer to miniland scale.
I think Sig Jason needs a phone book :)


The top of the pod.


The underbelly of the pod.


This beam is what connects the cockpit pod to the engine.


This is where the ship gets it's name! I was originally going to call it "The Midnight Reaper" because of the dark blue coloring but as i built up the engine, i noticed that the front of it looks a lot like the Kraken from Pirates of the Caribbean... so the name stuck.


Another angle of the front of the engine.


This is the second turbolaser. This one can rotate 360 degrees and can elevate up to 45 degrees.


This is the third and final mini turbolaser battery on the ship. Again this can rotate 360 degrees.


The greebles on the top of the engine.


Here are the two engine access panels on the top of the engine.


When you open them, you find... MORE GREEBLES! YAY!


Here we have the large thrusters. A larger one on top and a smaller on on the bottom. I'm already regretting saying that :) I guess i'll start off the dirty jokes by saying " That must be painful! It's much safer the other way around!"


Now, a ship with an engine this big is nothing without a good braking system. This ship has two drag fins that fold away into the sides of the engine.


Here is one of the fins extended.


Here is yet another shot of the roof of the engine. MORE GREEBS!


There is also four smaller thrusters on the back. They help with steering.


And some more greebles.


And finally is a shot of the ship belly up!

Great attention to details. The connecting column could use some work, but idk how stable it would be, but since you wanted a way to dettach the pod, you have some room for improvement there. Great job though!

A massive and complex build, very impressive. As I am minifig scale builder, I would turn the pilot compartment into a twin-seated one for minifigs, but that's just me... Well done!

thats amazing, I love assymetric ships, it takes so much effort to come up with a good design that doesn't look like you just put a bunch of pieces together throw a wind shield and call it "ramdom-letter-of-the-alphabet-goes-here Wing" Well done dude!!!

Fascinating!!! You are one truly creative and inspiring builder, every one of your MOCs is an amazing new experience. Awesome job on this, I haven't seen a MOC for a while that was bigger than minifig scale! The colors work together nicely and that engine it ENORMOUS. Fantastic job.

I am very impressed with the greebling on this one, jason, but I also see some really good potential for this to be modified and used (well, actually, a series of them really) for some capital space craft engines. Please let me know what you think about my suggestions, okay? Thank you.

What a thing of beauty! I hope there's some mechanism to steer the ship properly because I could just imagine, with one humongous engine to the side, that the ship will be spinning to the left rather than going straight. I see thrusters behind the pod and drag fins on the other side, but will that be enough? ... Oh well, I'll just imagine it works perfectly fine! XD

Nice Kraken. I was thinking this MOC was going to be the monster from the "Clash of the Titans" movie, but no disappointment after viewing it. It's good to see an asymmetrical ship that is so unique. I still can't figure out the "wheel design"; have to look at this on again, but on the computer instead of the phone!

Is that Sean Kenney sitting in the pilot's seat? I mean, we could get him a booster chair or something. (Sorry Sean, couldn't resist!) Meanwhile, some sexy Lego work going on here! Absolutely LOVE the unusual design, and you've done some great manipulation with the circular form. Nice color work, too. Just a great job all around!

This is some great stuff. Great colours and greeblage. I like the fact that there's even more greebles when you open it up. I normally also have a mental checklist of things I want to include in my MOCs. For me , it's about the only way of telling if the MOC was a success in the end. I think yours definitely is.

O yeah! Two days to create this, you must be some kind of a brick- master! I just love this thing. Details, the design and the colours are great. So are the massive engine you´ve here! Great way too use the tracks to do the round shape, I have to steal that idea some day..thank you!

What an amazing MOC! You are very skilled in greebling and adding great color combinations to your MOCs, I absolutely love assymetrical ships, they just have a beaten up, barely held together look that is simply weird enough to be cool.
