MAS-003 Mikana.ZX
The 3rd Mobile Armor System unit created by ZX Industries
About this creation
Storyline information for this unit is classified.
Pilot data for this unit is classified.

The Mikana.ZX is said to be, from a technological standpoint, the most powerful MAS ever created by ZX Industries. It is a Support-Type MAS (Hub.ZX would be a close combat Offense-Type).

The Mikana.ZX is much more nimble than its blue counterpart, but lacks in physical strength. It is adept for using close-combat weaponry and can easily run circles around slower opponents. Its armor becomes 15-fold stronger when polarized.

Like the Hub.ZX, the Mikana.ZX is also powered by a crystalline power source that reacts to life vitality.

The name "Mikana" comes from the Japanese phrase 見ぬが花 ("minu ga hana"), essentially "not seeing is a flower", meaning "imagination trumps reality".


3/4 view.


Back side.
The Mikana.ZX has two small jumpjets. Looks are deceiving, however. These jumpjets produce enough propulsion to enable the Mikana.ZX to make massive leaps and bounds. It cannot fly though.


Cockpit. Although it's a bit hard to tell, the cockpit is virtually identical to Hub.ZX Spec3's cockpit.


Talk to the hand, because the head isn't listening! Mikana.ZX has a neck joint allowing it to look up and down.


The feet. Credit for the style would go to Jason Dominguez.


The Mikana.ZX's main weapon is the E-Mag Lance. Basically, it's an E-Mag knife with a very long handle. Thanks to the long handle, it has a generator inside it that allows it to recharge itself on the fly.


The E-Mag Lance activated. Do not step close unless you wish to be relieved of some limbs or other components.


The Mikana.ZX can interface with the EMPASS rifle as well.


Same with the Gravity Driver.


And the G-Shock Hammer... although that may not be the best of ideas.

Creator's Notes
The Mikana.ZX's design was inspired by Hartzenen/Core Robot 1 from Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure. I wanted to create a "female" MAS and I think I did decent job. The cockpit hatch gave me the most trouble. It was somewhat difficult to figure out how to make one that conformed to a somewhat "effeminate" figure.

Mikana.ZX's weaponry and functionality were more or less inspired by the Tengen Toppa Sorubaania (Solvernia) from Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagann Movie 2: Lagann-Hen

MAS-002? You want to know where MAS-002 is? Oh, well, MAS-002 isn't built yet. It will be constructed from the Exo-Force Grand Titan (001 is Stealth Hunter and 003 is Blade Titan) which I currently do not own and cannot afford to buy.


Oh, and:

Preview shot of a WIP I'm building. This is where most of my LEGO money is going.

Both of these are really well done, not too complicated, and they look sturdy. However, minus one for the Ewok poster in the background. Sorry, couldn't let that slide.

Quoting Jason Dominguez Nice build here. You're definitely improving, though don't forget to bend the knees a bit, that's why they're there.
Thanks! And d'oh! Knees! I knew I was forgetting something! I think I was too busy gawking at the awesomeness that is this MOC :P
Quoting Commander Luiz Camargo Man, they are getting better and better, you're really improving your skills! I loved the shape and color scheme. The head is awesome. Just the back need some improvement, but who cares? Congratulations man, this is over my expectations =)
The head IS awesome! Glad someone else thinks so! :D What about the back do you think could use improvements? I'm all for making improvements and posting a Spec2 of this model. Personally, I think the upper arm armor and shoulder armor could use a little work.
