MocOlympics Round 1 – Deep Space Walker . Hey all! Here is my moc entry for the MocOlympics 2012! I had lots of fin building this one, and it helped that I am very good at building evilish looking mecha things. I saw the category The Dark Side of the Moon, and thought, “Evil aliens on cool vehicles time!” The result is as good as I could have ever hoped for. Also, I got to experiment with two-way tilting with plates to achieve a conical effect. Look on, and enjoy! . First off, the MocOlympics! A front view. A right side view. A rear view. A left side view. A cannon close-up. This cannon is actually very well done, in my opinion – it looks good and is very articulated. I’ve always liked how six-barreled cannons using the long cylindrical ones I used come out, so I decided that now would be the perfect opportunity to try it out. Left extremity. Right extremity. Upwards extremity, which has been updated and can go even farther up! The rear end of the Walker. I know that if I wanted the whole creation to tie together and look smooth, It had to be good no matter where you looked – and since a butt-cannon was out of the question, I had to take the more difficult approach of covering it up. Luckily, I succeeded. It involved lots of obscure structural pieces, the original leg framework, and tons of hinge bricks, but it was worth the effort. A not-so-good picture of a fairly good leg. I spent a very long time working on those “toes” and trying to make them menacing but like they could actually grip the landscape, no matter what. The paneling. The highlight of the model. Yes, I know that people may have done better, but I knew nothing about it, researched nothing, and didn’t try to copy anyone or anything. I started completely from scratch, and I think it turned out very good. It definitely served its purpose, which was to hide the interior structure, very well. It also leads up to the domed cockpit, transporting the model to a whole other space-vehicle dimension (figuratively). Cockpit with Dark Side Alien inside. Showcases the lovely clear Alien Conquest bubble cockpits that I so loved. Here is the Alien hunched over his incredibly complex controls. In all seriousness, however, there is more to those controls than meets the eye! First off, they are hinged to allow a more dashboard-y feel. It also provides more legroom for the minifig. And speaking of room, it’s last subtlety – it’s all engineered to fit exactly inside the cockpit! Just another view of the cockpit, except it’s empty and it’s a top view. Here you can notice that these walkers are not exactly built for comfort – there’s no seat! A pilotless Walker. And of course, the fig itself. Who could forget? This little guy is one of my best aliens yet, probably because of the use of pieces that were literally made for each other (the helmet and shoulder pads). The torso also fits nicely with the helmet pattern – don’t know if that was in a LEGO set too. Side view. Here you can see his luminescent, orange face. Yum. And, last but not least…who could forget FLYING MODE!!!!! Any space land craft is incomplete without flying mode, in my opinion. I was actually thinking about how to go about flight with an insectoid walker, and was about to give up when I accidentally splayed one of the legs. Curious, I did the same to all of the legs – and suddenly, this little bad boy could fly. Different angles. Thank you very much for your time! Comments are appreciated and positive judge scores are very appreciated!
