Mantis Tri-Walker
A cool three legged walker thats a bit Mech-ish, a bit War of the World-ish, a bit Exo-Force-ish, a bit Battlefield 2142ish and a few other things. Created: 5/18/08
About this creation

I wanted to make some thing cool and fairly unique- this is what I got. It's the Mantis Class Tri-Walker.

The Mantis is a tough, fairly fast, well armed, three legged walker. It is used mainly for anti-air, and anti-infantry, though it can take down some vehicles.




It's weapns include: 8 Type-12 Lasers, 2 Archer 9x Missle Pods, 2 Light Machine Guns and 2 "Chaos" Heavy Cannons





Comming towards you- I'd run.







The side. Originaly, I had the rubber part of the wheel around the center, but it looked odd, so I took it off.





The back- note that the back leg is different.







Close-up of the cockpit and weapons. After I completed this, I realized that it looks a lot like the top of that one Exo-Force Rescue Tank, this was completely unintentional.




Close-up of the legs- Originaly I had planned pointed insect-like feet for this mech, but they were very unstable





The back- note the vents on the back of the body and the three flaps that are for directing the fumes from the weapons behind the mech.




Shooting some infantry.







Shooting a plane







Shooting you- note that the missle pods move.







It got stepped on.







Showing off the versatility of the legs.







Close-up- note the booster.







Standing tall.







The cockpit.







The controls.







Empty.







The lame excuse for an engine.







The bottom.







The Bionicle joints I used are not very strong, so this tends to happen alot.

Man, I wish Bionicle joints were stronger, too!... but that makes building more of a challenge!
