About this creation
2012 MocAthalon Team GAIA Will it Blend?
Just like Tom Dickson, you need to find 2 themes to blend together and build a creation representing the blending of both. For example, Spastle (space and castle), Friend-Punk (Friends and steampunk), or Mechars (mechas and cars). The only requirement is that you use your imagination to find a magical blend of themes.
This is a blend of Exo-Force and Castle.
Captions are below the photos. Enjoy.
An overview of the whole MOC.
Oh and by the way, just sayin, 'Will it Blend?' is an awesome show. ;D
The Robber bot.
The Soldier bot.
The landscape without the robots. I know, I don't have that much for flora and grass.
Some more shots.
The Soldier Bot, with a spear-shooter.
A sort-of action pose...
And here's the Robber Bot, with crossbow. ;)
Both of these robots were really fun to make.
This whole thing was a fun build. I especially love the robots, I don't know if it shows too much that I'm a Bio-builder or not. :P I tried to include details from both Exo-Force and Castle, and I think I balanced them pretty well. ;)
The mechs are good, the only problem is it does not blend as well the way you made it, for one thing, Exo-Force was about humans vs robots, this shows a hassasin vs a castle guard, (forgive me, but it looks like you did not go through any minifig design here, just took two Official Minifigs and slapped them on some cool robots). Also, the mechs lack the Exo-Force build, perhaps instead of the pilots standing on top, they should have had an more enclosed alcove. Perhaps with jail-cell bars for windshields? Anyway, it's good for a mech/castle crossover, but not close enough to the Exo-Force style.----Rahkshi
I got a kick out of the combo you created, and I thought there was some nice PU in the mix. On the down side, I would have liked to have seen greater detailing in the landscape and a bit more refinement throughout the MOC. Not bad, though. Score of 3.
this is pretty cool! it's a well thought design, but it just doesn't look right to me... oh, well, as I'm doing this, we could compare scores ;) LOL, what the heck is Phipson doing chained and being questioned by clones? HA! LOL
