Rapid River Raid...
In which Two Commandos quickly Blow the HECK out of a VTOL thingy... Why yes, I am a geek!
About this creation
This was one of those "Dang, I am so stinking bored! What the blast can I build out of LEGO (R) bricks?" type of builds that always break up the time between the release and finishing of my more important and long-drawn out projects... and of course it's one of those "Whoa - that was way more fun than what I was originally working on!" type of builds that totally throw me off track. But finally, it was one of those "Dude, I seriously just lost total interest in this idea, can I be done now?" builds... Yep... that's me an my LEGO hobby.


I lose interest fast, if you can't already tell.
Wait - did you see that guy with the nachos? I want some!


I know I stole the sampan design from some bloke, but heck, I can't think of who it was/is... any memory jogging is totally welcome, unless the design really is original... (Ha - what a joke!)


The VTOL thingy was the best part of the MOC... I was fiddling around with a bin of LEGO (R) bricks and came up with an interesting wing design, which I liked... So I worked this up, from there.


First, a grenade down the intake, and now one down the turret-pit... dang! I guess that's what you get when you let your heart win...


And then I just HAD to build a scene for it to grace... and that's why the awesome VTOL thingy has a disgusting and ugly back-drop.


And because the back drop was so hideous...


I built that awesome sampan to finish off the scene! Whoa - is that not so totally wacky! ... I thought it was...


I mean... I'm not only a rambling/babbling idiotic geek... I'm also a total dork! Hah!


Wait... my coffee mug's empty, I need me some more caffeinated beverage!


The commando figs were one of those” spur-of-the-moment-o” things... and life savers for this MOC...


Because if I hadn't come up with them, this whole thing would have been scrapped…


Here's the cruddy backdrop, without the pain-in-the-rear-end-to-hang VTOL thingy...


And a picture of my way-too-cool sampan. Wow, I sure make up some long and lame names for the things I build...


Actually, I was going to call this beast the "Messerschmitt Zerstorer 'Dahs Flying Panzers' 518" but heck, who wants to type that repeatedly?


So I just call it the VTOL thingy...


My Brother was the chief of inspiration for this turret, he came up with the overall idea, while I built it. Dang - he's one smart cookie!


Not enough greebles... 'cause there aren't any at all...
Oh - well... I'll build something containing them someday.


So many play features, yet so easily broken... I hate MOCs like that! This think could be a perfect toy, yet the wings fall off with too much handling... Darnit.


Still, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.


Yes, I know this attempt to give you a peak inside sucks...


And this one does too... But wait - my photography in this entire post is horrible, so heck with it!


The Pilots...


The commandos...


Spear-Fisherman in his awesome sampan... now I'll run off on a Samurai /ninja tangent and try something else that will either fail, or succeed in pulling me farther away from my other LEGO (R) goals... meh...

Oh - and my sincerest apologies about the commentary being so ridiculous and having nothing to do with the pictures. That's the way it goes, this time.

Sweeeeet build! I do love a good action scene. The setup makes the gunship look even better than it already does. The commandos' decals are somewhat lo-res, but the diorama, VTOL, and boat all look superb; good job!

Quoting Quantam Paradox Do you mind if I use some of the elements of your vtol for a vtol I'm making? I will list you as an inspiration, of course.
Sounds good! Just be sure to contact me (Through email or MOCpages) so that I'll be able to see what you make!

O well,i do that to but i try not to take it apart unless it just has that one piece to make something better,but it would have been something nice to play with i make claymations so that would have been nice for one and you seem like a guy who would like to make lego stuff for the group Mandatory Arbitration so check it out and great job on the Moc!!!

Quoting Christian Collins AWESOME and if you did not take apart the German plane tipe thing(correct me if it isn't German) try putting clay or something on the supports to help hold on to the wings!
Yes - the VTOL thingy was German aircraft inspired - and you're probably right, clay might have helped strengthen the wings. But, like many of my LEGO creations, I've begun the process of stripping it down (I nearly always take my creations apart slowly, only stealing the parts I absolutely need.) and it's now lying in pieces on my LEGO build-desk.

Very nice. The VTOL alone was perfect, but the backdrop was pretty nice in my opinion, and a great addition to the MOC! 5/5!
