This is a crab-droid-ish droid I built for a small contest on FBTB.
Backstory, clarifications, and some nerd talk :D : Ok, so the main thing you will be wondering is why is this in CIS colors. After the clone wars, many of the CIS designs and projects ended up in empire hands. As we all know, the best example is the death star, which was a grand plan of Dooku's, and also other droid designs. The Antlion was in prototype phase just before the abrupt end of the war, it had amazing durability and speed, but it sacrificed firepower. The two underpowered blasters in the front are compensated by it's buff body, powerful front legs for bashing and frontal attacks, and it's shield generator (like the droideka's) in the back. The front legs serve as heavy close combat weapons, and also as protection from ranged fire. While the stubby short rear legs offer stability and traction.
Great animal inspired creation mate. The poseability for such a small moc is fantastic. As I write this review, the average score is 3 1/2 smileys, which is leaving me a bit perplexed. What retards cannot recognize creativity when they see it? And why are so many boxy spaceships getting 5/5??!!
