Never bring a plasma rifle to a mech fight.
About this creation

The attack on Epsilon Zeta was thwarted but the war is far from over.






Squidorian spies found that the least well protected entrance to the compound was located on the southern shore of the Corinax coastline.






Least protected, yes, but not UNprotected as the small infiltration force of Squidorians soon found out.






The moral of the story is, never bring a plamsa rifle to a mech fight.






Fourth wall commentary (with bonus pics): My original thought was to have a mech tromping through a city tearing it to shreds. We've all seen this type of moc before and it wasn't going to be anything new, but I thought I'd give it a crack. Haven't built a mech myself in goodness knows how long.






Anyway, I built the mech and then... the Earthquake hit Christchurch. Now, call me over sympathetic, but I'm not going to build and post a torn up city right now. So I had the mech and needed something to go with it. I decided to revisit the Epsilon Zeta concept and expand the story just a bit.






I'm not happy with the mech really, the legs just... aren't right. The one thing I did like was the clawed foot design (which is basically what saved this whole build from the scrap pile).




Well, that's it for now.
Till next time true believers!
~Chris.

Holy frollick, I missed this! I also have 4 of those aliens in a little bignette, on hold for now. I'm glad to see this was made with your recognizable (and much appreciated) "low-res" style.

Sure, the mech isn't the greatest ever built(the feet are awesome, though), But would you look at that beach! That is a nice beach! All it needs is a hotdog stand and a few scantily clad babes!

great scene chris! although a little more time would have done wonders on the mech, sometimes, we just don t have it! the exo force joints really do a nice job on these, i love the legs design, and the feet are convincing enough, i also like the controls and cockpit a lot! as a scene, it s pretty hot and funny! great work!

This is pretty well done, the landscaping is excellent. But the mech is a little too blocky. Still very well done! Cheers!~Swift

The aliens look really good when they're grouped together with that 'invasion' look. But, the mech looks a little too box-ish. I think that it would look better with 3-4 smaller mechs, instead of a single big one.

I dunno, Your Highness Supreme Overlord Commander. I kind of like it but the mech seems too inactive. It takes away from the big draw of the otherwise great build. May be if you showed the clawed foot grabbing a squiddie or "trompin' around" or shooting its missiles and guns and stuff. Maybe you'd be happier that way. Now if you'll excuse me I must slaughter the fattened lego in sacrifice.

nice moc though the mech looks a little to square and it doesn't look like it has very much articulation.

There's nothing like a Battletech styled mech to show the classic never die. They simply find a whole new target to grind into pulp under mechanized foot!

Those poor little creatures. But you're right, the foot design is rather cool, as is the hand design, which I really like. Very thoughtful of you not to do the destroyed city.

Those Squidorians! They'd bring a spoon to the Super Bowl. Anyway, I don't know how much sense that made, but great build. I really like the way that the two curved pieces wrap around at the attachment point between the mech's guns and it's arms.

Sort of like bringing a knife to a gun fight. Of course, there was this one guy who did and won. But I don't see him here, so yeah. The mech is cool, definately has a Mechwarrior/Battletech feel to it. Poor squidies. ^Blub^

I'm disappointed! I never thought I could build a mech better than an AFOL! Awesome figs though, and it reminds me of a beach landing from WWII. 4/5

Oh, I gotcha. I meant make the legs poseable at the hip. You can do what I call the "old-fashion technique" and use L-bars and headlight bricks at the hips and joints at the tops of the legs and arms. Just some ideas:)

Quoting M<0><0>DSWIM ! Nice! I love the mech, but, I agree, it's a bit...off. I love the feet and lower legs. My suggestion would be to rebuild the upper legs so they can move. Same with the arms. You'd be surprised how poseability adds to a mech's look. In this case, I would use Exo-Force joints (if you have them).
The mech is actually fully posable. Just the hinges that I have have lost some of their clutch power and two per joint wouldn't hold him up. So I had to go with four per joint, hence the blockyness of the legs that we've already pointed out... don't work too well.

Kind of like "never bring a Kelso to a speed building contest!" Nice work, my friend. Wouldn't mind seeing more detail in the build aspect of the Mech (or maybe a hit of color or some sticker work), but the general design is terrific. Bad day to be a squiddy!

Nice. Arms and legs look a bit blocky on the mech, but the main body and the clawed feet look great. I love the ocean stuff also with the beach.

The title is hilarious, the dio is incredible, and the mech is oddly reminiscent of a Starcraft Goliath. 5/5, as usual.
