Jackrabbit and War Wagon
Originally intended to accompany another MOC in presentation, I unfortunately find myself in need of her parts.
About this creation
Even more unfortunately, I find myself lacking the time and means to apply the proper graphic adornments that I usually pride myself on with these more detail-intensive builds, nor do I have the patience to wait to upload the model until I have access to my beloved graphic-processing programs.

So, for now, we'll pretend that Terra Onyx, (the fictional planetary system on which the Jackrabbit and it's human counterparts, the 21st Marine Expeditionary Unit) are deployed, is an exotic alien world that is oddly covered in blue satin. Yeah...let's go with that. Move along, move along...
------------------------------------------------


Planned as a high-speed utility/reconnaissance vehicle, the MT-5/CORE "Jackrabbit" delivers all-terrain agility and cargo-carrying capabilities to units deployed with Marine Expeditionary Units throughout remote planetary systems. The unit depicted currently serves with the "Wicked Weasels" (21st MEU) stationed on Terra Onyx - a frigid forest-world coveted by humanity for its abundant natural resources.


Agility, traction, and speed were the key design initiatives during the conception stage of the Jackrabbit. Thus, the end result features tire chains, full suspension/quadra-steer, and a state-of-the-art fuel-cell power-plant. Oh, and color-coordinated rear-view mirrors...because they're nifty.


The OmniPak Heavy All-Terrain Combat Utility Hauler, or "War Wagon", is much more than a common trailer. It's design incorporates a long-range communication array, auxiliary lighting, access stirrups, a rear-mounted towing winch, and an operational platform for the LAACG GAUSS cannon--a compact magazine-fed coilgun.


The OmniPak UF577 Large Hardened Supply Canister is a modular cargo solution. It protectively carries anything a galaxy-roaming heart could desire. Bio-kits, weapons, camp equipment--if it fits, it ships....for a ridiculously high and variable rate.

More equipment briefs on the 21st MEU forthcoming. Stay Tuned.

EPILOGUE OF STRANGE OBSERVATIONS------------------------------------

Despite all appearances of the contrary, this ended up being one of the most structurally-sound models I've built. It survived numerous tumbles from the desk. Even the rear-view mirrors, which seem like they would fall off if you give them a dirty look, are freakishly snug. Hmm....

Despite not having the "usual enhancements" that accompany your builds, this has a really cool design! I love the TIE fighter cockpit tops as hubcaps (say THAT 10 times fast!). The fact that it splits is cool as well.

Great usage on those hubcaps! Love the angles and colors, dark bley and white go great together.

I'd have to say that the rear-view mirrors and the 'chains' on the tires are my favs. I read your home page and it sounds a bit like my story - used to have a large collection; had a dark-ages period; silly work gets in the way of MOCing; not enough resources for enhanced pics; lazy; etc. Well, nice to cyber meet you! My name's Matt too. Anyway, sorry to gabber, I'm at work and it's sloooow today. Later ~ Matt

Hey... That's ridiculously awesome!! I suppose I should get used to it by now. Anyways, I wanted to just put in a request that you check out the things I'm trying to build to contribute to Mandatory Arbitration and maybe offer some commentary. Awesome build!

I like the piece choice for the tire-chains, quite a bit, but dang... the entire model is really neat. Nice build all around!

Coolness! Great design, and the container fitting on the trailer is cool.

Wow, this so would make a good vehicle for the LEGO Space Police sets. It seems to accompany that sort of theme very well...at least if it were used by the space bikers and a window was added to the vehicle, anyway. Also, to the guy who made the jackwagon comment, I guess you've been watching those Geico commercials with that dude from Mail Call and Lock 'N' Load (R. Lee Ermey if you want an exact name), too?

Hans, Heath, Shifu and others have covered the good here and I echo their praise for the innovative parts use, chunky design and cool modular storage unit. But I have to raise two points of my own. 1. You have actually built something, so I better get on and do something again myself before I see any more flying pigs and blue moons outside. 2. Blue satin eh? No wonder you need more parts, you're spending all your money on bed linen. Good job mate!

Wow. First comment! Anyway, what's not to like on this? I'm especially loving the main pic and the sheer detail in this MOC. Can't wait to see future uploads.

The trailer and cargo pod are my favorite bits. Interesting use of the nets for a great effect on those tires and the access steps are a nice touch.~H

If there is no suspension, I will be sad. I'd repeat what I said on flickr, but for obvious reasons I won't. Btw, are you attending Brickworld in June?

Daaaang! You really do go above and beyond throwing in those little unique details that make THAT much cooler, the wheels, the seats, the stickers, the curves on the canister! Great work.

Man this is an awe inspiring build! I'm assuming this is what morphed from the Fire fighting ATV build? I really enjoy all of the extra details you put into these vehicles. I even saw your lost blackberry in there!

I can see why you would be in need of her parts. She's a beauty. She might even rate burgundy in the satin dept.

Yar! That supply canister is really cool, too. Awesome!

Finally it's good that you ran out of parts, because this beauty shouldn't accompany another MOC. It's cool enough on its own, even in front of a blue satin landscape, gnihihihi ...

Well it took you awhile but this is worth the wait! Nice use of the nets. What inspires you to make thees AWESOME things, and what would be your process when making them?

The more I look at this the more I like it. For real, this is really sweet. In fact, I may have to 'borrow' an idea or two. You should also put some little dudes in it too!

"... I unfortunately find myself in need of her parts." --- That's what she said ... A well-designed vehicle! The modular cargo solution is sweet! I cannot get over the access stirrups; reminds me of this procedure where the legs ... never mind ... Ingenious with the "mesh" around the tires. Amazing build overall!

Quoting Siddhart Jaipal Wow! You are a real Lego fan! I'm a real oldies goldies '80 G.I. Joe fan and I come from the eighties. This moc comes close to one of the G.I. Joe snow patrol vehicles. This model rocks!
Ahh! As I was photographing this it seemed to be reminding me of something. I think that was it.
