my entry for the Moc-Olypmics.
About this creation
link to MO homepage: MO

category: 12 signs of the Zodiac.

link to symbol:
CANCER

well, since i had no idea what the 12 zodiac signs were, it was to the internet for ideas. cancer is supposed to be some sort of crab, with a symbol such as above. wit hthis in mind, and my love for sci-fi/robotics, i combined the two. the result is an robot crab tank, as shown below.



the left claw, actually moves to some degree. used for grabbing.


the right "static" claw. used for carrying and holding.


now what would a giant crab tank grab you ask? maybe...an attack on Lego City! (Muhahahahaha).


missiles on top of missiles so you can blow things up while you blow things up. (the orange have actual flick fire capability, and the blue 4 in the center move up and down.)


tank treads! and here is where i messed up... this is supposed to be an lego-bit rendition of the zodiac sign on the side of the tank (the bottom half.)


this is the other mess up, the top half.


the rear. a small bar used for carrying it places/hanging on for dear life so the crab can't see you.


RUN, FOREST RUN!!!!!!!


-------------------------
4th wall: the makeshift shadow box is made out of ninjago set 70504, with a green baseplate over it, and my laptop box serving as a background.
i hope to be in round 2, but this was a bit of a rushed build,but either way it was fun!

To be honest, I couldn't tell what it was until I read the description. ;-) -LB Jr.

Not a bad tank. I think it could be more oblong to best represent a crab, and I think a brown or orange colour would serve better. Very cool idea though.

Quoting David . Nice work, but there are some things that could be improved.
A lot of things could have been improved..... i ran myself out of time, that's all.
