Provost (Iron Mecha)
Iron Mecha winner - The Provost.
About this creation
The Provost was only the third Mecha I ever built (fourth if you count the M-Tron Spider) and was built for the Iron Mecha competition run on Legnet.

Surprisingly it won. YAY! I am Iron Mecha champion!


I'm still not sure how, there were a lot of entries I rated as far better then mine, but somehow I came out on top.

Built:2006
Current Status: Intact.

   The Provost alongside the original art work we all had to use as inspiration for our competition enteries.

   Four legs good, two legs bad!

   Well I won months ago now so I can reveal the fatal flaw... those darn legs splay all the time if it's not on a carpet!



Enlarge image
   In fact it has become so bad that I put an extra brick in the knee joints to lock them in place when I display it at public events.

   Still it looks very pretty doesn't it?



Enlarge image
   And it's not every mecha that can wave at his friends.



Enlarge image
   Lance or gun? Both I say!



Enlarge image
   The thumb is by far the worst part, but this design allowed it to tuck under the fingers and look more like the inspiration picture.



Enlarge image
   The back pack was a last minute addition, before this I was trying to get some fold out wings to work, but it looked silly on a four legged mecha, maybe I'll use them in future.

   From the side.

   I surrender!



Enlarge image
   The rear - why is it the rear on so many mecha look much more mechanical and intricate then the front?



Enlarge image
   The legs alone!



Enlarge image
   The weak knees! So I put a 2x1 brick in there and they lock!



Enlarge image
   Fist launcher!

   The green was kind of an accidental decision, I only had those pieces in white, yellow and trans-green, following it up with highlights elsewhere just seemed to work.

i guess it's been a pretty long while since this was posted, but anyway, it's nice to see a Mecha that has more than 2 legs. I have to think that the military industrial complex would go for more than 2 based off of the computational complexity involved in maintaining stability of a 2-legged unit firing weapons, and what the hell, more legs means more money!

Looks like something from the XBOX game Chromehounds. Maybe that's just because it's a quadroped though. Nice MOC anyway.

i saw this MOC a couple of days ago and it inspired me to make someting like it, soon i will post it on my page, along with everythin else i made since i have nothin on my page, the only thing that is very very different from yours is that mine has a different color scheme and it has a larger array of weapons, though some of the weapons r EXO-FORCE weapons that ive modified to be held by hands, instead of just attachin them to the arm, and also, mine has a "modular-system," meanin that my mech is compatible with specific weapons, so im givin credit to u rite now for the inspiration, thanx

It's really great, and the TransGreen looks wonderful with the white.
