Atropa
Mmmmm... dark red.
About this creation
Atropa - the genus of plants that includes the mandrake and deadly nightshade.


Grown on huge clone farms, these cybernetically enhanced humans are the only ones that can handle the g-forces produced by the craft at its full capability.


There are innumerable gaps in the structure. I don't much like that, but with all the curves meeting at weird angles on this thing, it's bound to happen.


It all started with the barred canopy design (inspired in part by the Legohaulic's alien ship) but the back ended up looking better, in my opinion.


Hi, my name is Shannon, I'm 32, and I own a bunch of Bionicle pieces.


I picked up some in the past if they were at a deep discount and looked interesting -- the little guys that rolled up into balls were kind of neat.


But I haven't gotten any in a while, they looked less and less interesting, less and less like Lego®, I guess. And the ones I had never did much. I found it difficult integrating the "weird" pieces into "normal" MOCs.


I lke how this turned out, though. I was going for an alien look (and the pieces were dark red, which I don't have much of).


You can use that dome piece the unimaginitive way, by having a dark red R-2 unit to populate your lame Star Wars MOC, or you can slap it onto the back end of your latest swooshmobile. It's better there, trust me.


Not that I have anything AGAINST Star Wars, I just don't think it's anywhere near cool enough to be worth the mental energy so many people expend on it. I could be wrong... I do seem to be in the minority here, at least among my fellow Lego geeks. To each their own.


Now that I've pissed 90 percent of you off with my vicious Star Wars bashing, please leave your indignant blather and death threats below.


Those barbs on the bottom front do something, I don't know what. But they do have a function. You don't think I'd just throw them on there to plug some holes, do you?


I'm sure there's a more elegant way of getting all those faces on the underside to meet and look somewhat sealed, but this will have to do.


Please wait until the car comes to a complete stop, and exit to your right. Thank you.

Here's an idea: make one more of these and then build a giant mech that could use them as shoulder armor.(just give me heaps of credit..) Seriously though, this little ship looks really cool.

Very cool! I love the SNOT! I love MOCs that are mostly made of huge curve pieces that act as the outside. Great job!

I don't like Star Wars either. I've seen all the movies, but I still can't understand why kids and adults alike spend thousands of hours to create Lego creations that are already in the movie anyway. That's degrading your imagination in my opinion. But you, you're the type of guy who encourages imaginitive behavior, instead of acting like the monkeys some guys down in Oxford said we used to be.

Always thinking outside the box! Another odd but truly original design here shannon. I particularly like the continuous flowing 'cage' design achieved by way of the Exo-Force robot arms. Sleek and decidedly menacing! Nice job.

Nice use of those robot arms and bionicle pieces. The sleek design makes the LIU jealous.

This looks really pro from the thumbnail, that technique is so awesome. Wished that the pieces could've formed less gaps.

Very nice MOC. That room must be really bright to make the dark red look so much like normal red. I think it's better to have too much light than not enough, which is certainly the problem with my camera.

I too love the dark red - next to trans-red it is my favourite accent colour. Unfortunately, I also only have a limited supply of this luscious colour, and there are too many other pieces that I covet to expand my dark red (and stay married). The 'back-bone' of this creation I may have to copy into a creation; I am not sure what it will be yet, but I will think of something. As for your Star Wars comments... I can keep a dozen shots on a 15cmX15cm target at a 1,000 meters... ;-) Lee.

This is one pretty awesome space vehicle. I wish my vehicles turned out this well. But still, the red looks very nice, and I like the streamlined look of it. The only thing is, where are the engines?

Cool! But dude, Star Wars isn't cool enough? You're right. It isn't. But this is coming from a 32 year old who still plays with LEGO (no offense man) and imean seriously-is LEGO cool? I've never heard that said before...anywy, nice MOC. Sorry for my harshness...
