D.O.R.I.S
Not my first but by far my best attempt at building a mech. I present D.O.R.I.S! Defensive/Offensive Robotically Integrated System. I was inspired after seeing the trailers for Pacific Rim (Which I was lucky enough to see last night! Giant robots and monsters! Woooo!) and a pile of grey parts. I wanted D.O.R.I.S to look like a brawler. I aimed for a rounded body and large, bulky limbs. The body opens for access to the cockpit, twin blades can be flipped out next to each wrist, guns can be flipped out of each hip, the left arm holds a cannon and a grapple launcher on the back of the hand and the right arm holds a triple barrelled grenade launcher and an EMP on the back of the hand. In terms or articulation there is ball joints in each shoulder and elbow, moveable fingers and thumbs. Ratchet joints in the hips and knees and a slight waist rotation and forward and back ankle movement. Unfortunately because of D.O.R.I.S' heavy upper body, posing the legs can be a bit of a mission. I hope to address this issue in a version 2. Thanks for looking and please comment!
About this creation
















The triple barrelled grenade launcher works by just swinging around on a ball joint













The cannon works by being moved out



Spun around



And pushed back in







The hip guns can be flipped around into firing position







The blades deploy from each wrist for close combat situations







The thigh panels can open to reveal air intakes for the jet engines mounted in D.O.R.I.S' legs for accelerated kicks, assisted jumps, or slowing descent from air drops.









Jetpack with adjustable fins



The grapple launcher on the left hand





The EMP on the right hand





I'm probably most proud of the cockpit and how it opens. The cockpit opens by folding down the stomach plate and chest plates



Moving the sides of the body out



Opening the canopies



And moving the display screens to the side







Honestly this picture was better in concept than execution





























And to finish (and an excuse to show him off) a size comparison with YOTS Platinum Edition Omega Supreme. Thanks for looking and be sure to see Pacific Rim while it's in cinemas, it is one hell of an experience!

Thanks for the comments everyone! I really appreciate all the tips you guys have been giving me and I'll defiantly take them all on board when I get around to a version 2. Thanks again!

Quoting Jared . Nice! The overall design looks incredible! You have a platinum Omega Supreme?! Lucky! I've only got the regular edition. Nonetheless, nice job! One bit of advice though, next time try to put less photos. I know it's really awesome, but sometimes less is more.
Thanks for the comment! I was actually lucky enough to find Omega on my way home from work a few weeks back, needless to say I was pretty stoked to have that gap in my collection filled! As for the amount of photos I actually cut out about 30 extra ones when I was going through them, I was trying out a new camera and I guess I got a little carried away

That cockpit is one of a kind! Now build a Jaeger Mk.3 and cancel the apocalypse!

Great work! I personally think that the exposed studs give this that rugged brawler look that you were going for. I liked how you showed the different features and how they worked. The way that the weapon systems are "armed" is pretty slick as well. My only suggestion is to make the feet slightly larger and/or more stable since they do not look that supportive.

Great cockpit. The incorporation of bionicle pieces and legos is smooth and fitting. However, I would like to see less studs on the arms and legs. Try using more SNOT. 4/5

This is a very well thought out design. The flip out weapons and canopy system are inspiring. The only things I would add are more greebles to cover up most of the studs in a V2 model. That and maybe a larger grappling hook or some other device in place of the one you have here. It just seems to small to have much of an effect on giant mechs or monsters but that's only my opinion for the whole two cents it's worth! Keep up the good work. One last thing before I forget. I would only post the best pics for a MOC. That's usually half or less of what I take. By doing that you should get even more poisitive feedback on your build. That nugget was passed on to me a ways back and now I hope it helps you too.

Woo-hoo, great Mech! I've got to go see that film, I'm sure it will get my mech mojo going too. Back to the MOC: I really like the shaping of the cockpit and the way it opens up, also the angles of the leg joints and all the industrial details. Would be even better if you could tile over a few more of the studs, but I wouldn't have I enough tiles to do that on a mech this size. Top stuff!
