This is tied for my tallest creation with Oblittehron (coming soon), who is part of the Maelstrome storyline. This mech, however, stands completely on it's own as one of earth's last defenses.
About this creation
Story: (feel free to skip)
In the year 2999, the world was preparing for the new century. Everyone was gathered in large cities to celebrate this once in a lifetime event. It was perfect; Now they could kill us all at once.
They descended from the sky in large glowing ships, dropping strange electric spheres. These spheres began to shrink, causing people to think it was some strange firework show. The spheres then started to hum, low at first, becoming more and more high-pitched as time passed. Then, in a single flash, they exploded. These explosions disintegrated everything within a fifty mile radius. Whoever attacked us didn't want to negotiate. They wanted to kill us all.
The government, oddly enough, was expecting an attack. Although they expected it to be from a neighboring country, they were somewhat prepared. Giant battle machines were built as a last resort. Little did they know how much they would need them. Pilots were chosen for each of the nine mechs; They were the best of the best. Mech nine was built in the U.S. It is piloted by Skyle Reaver.
front view. definitely my most complicated build... so far.
Sorry for the terrible photography. I am only 14.
Back view/detail. The pistons keep the mech standing, but don't limit movement.
Back of feet. These are actually extremely stable, despite how fragile they look.
