Dee-Derp (A Table-scrap Doodle)
About this creation
So this is a bit of a different build from what Iím used to doing. This is just to pass the time while the Orion remains intact, (as long as that beast exists, I canít build anything even remotely substantial). Although this was a throw-together, I really like the result.

The objective of this build was to find an odd use for the Death Star that comes out of set 9676. It doesnít have many uses, but it can be used for a silly-looking robot head. I like how this one turned out because with the overlarge head, it almost looks like a robotic caricature. I named him Dee-Derp because I picture him wandering aimlessly through the corridors of a space cruiser repeating in his robotic voice, ďDerp, Dee-Derp, Dee-Derp.Ē I get a chuckle just thinking about it.

Let's have a look.







I wasn't able to include as much detail as I usually do on my MOCs, but I still had to do a little bit. Here is a look at the rear end, where you can find his main control board.



The back of his head. I think the metallic mohawk really adds to the humor of the MOC.





A couple looks at his claws.





The head. Can't you almost hear it? "Derp, Dee-Derp, Dee-Derp." This was the most frustrating part of the build. I don't know if you've seen this Death Star piece, but there is only enough connection on the inside for a 2X2 brick. Any jostling at all and the two halves separate. I almost canned the whole project when this happened for about the fiftieth time.





I included this shot because it looks like the idiot is practicing Kung-Fu. Ah, the chuckles.



A look at the front end. Although you can't see it, there is a small wheel tucked in behind the black sloped parts, so it does roll pretty smoothly.



Thanks for having a look. Let me know what you think.

Quoting David Roberts Brilliant use of the Death Star! Yes I can imagine him making the noise too. This MOC brought a smile to face but then it made me sad as Dee-Derp doesn't seem to have any eyes :( P.S. I like the construction of the hands!
He has only one eye, right in the middle of his head. The split in the Death Star piece is supposed to be his mouth.

Quoting Garry King What a master mini piece. What a great imagination you have. Keep up the impressive creations.
Thanks, Garry. I would be lying if I said that I never pull inspiration from your amazing MOCs, so a compliment like that means all the more to me.

Quoting David Alexander Smith Excellent, nice to see your humour coming through. I was thinking of the Smash robots as soon as I saw him.
Thanks, David. I don't do enough humor in my MOCs. Glad you were able to recognized that as a motivator here.

Wow that is cool!! You shouldn't call it a table scrap though its quite complicated enough to be a regular MOC! 5/5 for me! I really like that awesome head design and the usage of pieces and those good looking greebles!

It looks like someone took a tank, ripped of the barrel, and put a trash can on. Then, they ripped the claws out of two machines, put them on the side, and cracked the death star like an egg. Then, crafted giant goggles for a cyclops and put it on the laser. In other words, Its FIRETRUCKING AWESOME! 5/5
