M-242 'Vesta' Attack Mechanoid
The 2-4-2; the terrifying face of the Zenexabas Mechanoid Divisions. Known as 'Vesta' to its foes.
About this creation
The M-242 was the standard attack robot of the Empire during it's period of service, and rightfully so.
It was decently fast, decently armoured and fairly well armed. It was intelligence that mattered, however, and the 242 was more than capable of operating without a commander nearby. This was an important trait, as the 242 was a stealth operator, moving quietly and quickly through undergrowth and alleyway alike, with the intention of accomplishing it's objective quickly and with a minimum of fuss, in order to fade into the dark places from which it came.
It was a formidable opponent, as much for it's advanced combat programming as for it's twin Hera 229 12mm machineguns. This programming was impressive, giving the appearance at times of being human controlled because of the incredible feats of camoflage and strategic coordination a squad of M-242s could accomplish.


It was widely hated and feared among the enemies of the Empire, for good reason. It was given the Alragatian Coalition reporting name 'Vesta', and they considered it the most effective of the Empire's war machines for it's fearsome reputation and intimidating appearance.



This was quite a quick build, being accomplished in less than a day from start to finish. It was originally going to be an air-defence unit armed with a pair of missile pods, which soon got narrowed down to one pod and a machinegun. This was narrowed even further, giving the appearance now seen. The legs were troublesome, and I simply made some modified duplicates of those of the C-995 for them.

Certain people want instructions. One-times-one Brick with Studs on two Sides. That is the only part you cannot see. You build the rest of it, and you will find that one of those is perfect for holding it all together. Oh, and there is a one-times-one Plate with Clip on Side to hold the legs on. Just fiddle with it 'till it looks right, and do not forget: posing it is a real pain. You have your instructions. Credit where it is due.

Quoting karta deraji Nice. Are you planning on making on a larger assault version? These guys, while armed, look a little exposed.
I wasn't, but come to think of it... lesse, shoulder armour; I wonder if those starwars shoulder thingies would fit... extra leg protection- mebbe a 1x4 tile, and possibly a different torso shape.. ohbytheway, before I forget, didja know those starwars shoulder armour things can make interesting body protection for a police dog?

Quoting ang chun yik mind sending me instructions?
They are already up there. One of those 1x1 bricks with a stud on two sides (three counting the top) is the only part you can't see; all you need to do is build the rest of it and then put one of those in the middle to hold it all together.

It is not 'mini', or microscale as it is called. It is full size. This is as big as it gets. It is not a microscale mecha, but rather a minifig scale hunter-killer.

Do you mean that it is 'very 'giger' in that it is similar to the work of Crimso Giger, lego builder, or reminiscent or the art of HR Giger, responsible party for the appearance of the Xenomorphs of 'Aliens' fame?

The legs on such things have always been a problem for me; an extra joint would not have fitted with the shape I had in mind. The thing is supposed to be just a bit taller than a fig, and it worked in that it is the same height as the Phoenix. I am as annoyed with the lack of knee joints as anyone else, but I find that a leg like this has an appeal of it's own. Also, I could not do things like http://mocpages.com/user_images/17339/12321354611_DISPLAY.jpg <that with them; the knees would bend. Interesting thing is, I don't go round begging for reviews and yet a pair of the most famous names on mocpages review one of my mocs. May be a lesson in there for just about everyone on this site with a title.

Very "Giger". I like em. I agree with LL, another joint would work nicely. But over all, not bad. ~ Chris.

I like them, but the legs are too stiff. Try adding another joint to them.~LL

There are two ways of looking at it: one is that there is no head and the torso is the only applicable part, and the other is that the whole assembly is just a big head; take your pick. The torso was the only constant part of the design; you know what? I STILL need to make an autonomous air-defence system.

Cool! The head is great!
