Metal Legion Light Armored Reconnaisance Buggy (L.A.R.B.)
The Mojave desert is an unforgiving enviroment. Temperatures reaching up to 140 degrees fahrenheit. Food and water are scarce. Empty valleys full of death and dispair. Some ask Why? Why here? The crust is full of precious metals, rare gems and dangerous natural resources. The Legion is inspired to take advantage, but there are others as well. With the expansion of Legion, Ground must be covered. To meet these standards I give you the ultimate Desert Transporter. The Metal Legions' Light Armored Reconnaisance Buggy! The desert terrain doesn't stand a chance. Plowing through the burms and whoops, The LARB is best suited vehicle for these types of missions. Its main mission is to Scout out enemy locations. When the LARB isn;t scouting the enemy out, its patroling the Mojave wastelands.
About this creation

A reinforced roll cage built to the frame supports its mobility.


two long range antanas are used to monitor Metal Legions chatter and civilain radio units.


Seats up to four Metal Legion Commandos.


A total of 10 halogen lights to pierce the drakness for night missions.


Powered by a Massive V-12 Combustable Engine.


Two oversized Fuel tanks are located under the body for the best weight distribution.


Top of the line suspension that is rpacked and finely tuned before any mission is ran.


Doors open down used to Enter and Exit the vehicle or you can just use the "JetPack Method" lol.


A massive five core radiator keeps the beast from overheating.


Viktor, my Heavy weapons specialist has the best spot to gun while in motion.


A reiforced "Cactus Killer" Brush guard plows any unwanted obstacles right out of the way!


Console controls and guages are powered by state of the art technology.


Bucket style off-road seats that harnest our warriors.


Okay everyone so there is no confusion, Yes I painted the Exhaust Headers. They were so old and looked so bad from wear and tear I had to paint them. Aluminum was the only spray paint I had so there you go.


No Man No Zombie could stand a ram from this monster.


Rugged Off-Road tires with Titanium Rims.


The Buggy is equiped with a highly sophisticating GPS tracking system.
If stolen, H.Q. is able to Remotely take over or Shut down to keep it safe.


Well Everyone I hope you enjoyed it as much as I do.

This is a great looking buggy! I would agree that it looks a bit big. It's more like a monster buggy! But the shape and feel is just right!

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 it looks designed for exploration on desolate planets, that are unbreathable! like mars, or venus! if you make something for city scale, i might be able to reproduce it! i d like to see this with a mars background! it would be sssoooo hot!!! great work dustin!
Frank youmare absolutely right. It is oversized for the Desert terrain of the Mojave, It could easily be converted into the Martian atmosphere. I would say change the Engine and cooling system to your designs for a couple reasons. The martian atmosphere is different then Earth's, So The engine on the Earth Buggy uses Oxygen in the fuel. Seeing how Mars lacks oxygen the Engine and cooling system wouldn't function. Maybe some rocket booster power or Solar electrical engines, So many possibilities these days. Have fun and I can't wait to see another version of this!

WOW that is really good it makes me want to be a minifig to drive it. I like the cage design and the shape of the front. Again this is awseome you should make a base for it and maybe a garage!

"With the expansion of Legion, Ground must be covered." Words of wisdom. Nevada Garrison is putting the L.A.R.B. on the top or our requisitions list! This thing has so many functional details it's almost as if you've driven one yourself. The fact that it can pick up civilian radio stations is a bonus, the soldiers like to keep up with sports scores and the latest Lady Gaga songs. I wish I could drive this thing myself!

Ah I was hoping you would have checked it out. I have lived in the desert pretty much all my life, Never really drove a buggy but Iv'e had my fair share of rides. To be honest you inspired me to build this after seeing your latest moc in the ML. Brilliant cliffhanger way to carry on the story. I wanted a QRF (quick reaction force) to aid the 1st Nevavda Garrison if anything like this ever happened. Almost fell out of my seat reading the last part and you are right, it helps keep the morale of the soldiers lifted.

Quoting JS Can Cool vehicle, but it looks like your photos and descriptions are in opposite order.
