[STAR WARS] AT-Something Something

Postby Nanja Kanja » Mon Feb 16, 2009 2:57 pm

alright so im new to fbtb
this is my first moc ever, so dont be too harsh

this moc started out as an alternate model to the clone walker battle pack
but the build was too limited, so i added a bunch of pieces

so now, it has too many additional pieces to be considered an alt.,
and too simple (imo) to be cool

in my mind, this walker is controlled by a droid brain, and can be placed alongside clones or stormtroopers
it can be used as a more disposable version of the at-rt
AND it frees up the oh-so valuable clone gunner for other mocs

SO

if i screwed up the embedding, ill be confused for a while so heres a sure-fire, handy-dandy link:

not much to much to say...

Image

this is the cross section
i tried to place a pop-up/hidden missile thingy *there* but i failed epicly
i would appreciate some help or ideas XD
and based on this picture, anyone who wishes can build this relatively easily

Image

dang image limit! thumbnails it is
this is my walker manhandling random rebellious passerby

Image

from left to right: designated sniper, commander, shinie, and gunner
and this is a size comparison pic

in closing, i would appreciate any constructive criticism on both the moc and my photography (both firsts)
also, please suggest a name for my walker, as im currently suffering from a creative dry streak

Well, it's a bit basic, and more of a mod than as MOC. Still, it looks nice and compact, although the front centre cannon caould be better integrated. I'm not a fan of the flamethrower design, it looks too inverted upon itself. Still, it's a neat little walker. How about AT-SD, all terrain scout drone?

Hey, this is a fun little MOC that kind of reminds me of the AT-PT. The scale is perfect, too. A nice little mecha to support the troops.

As for your "pop-up missle" problem. Might I suggest using either this piece or this piece to connect some of those new flick-fire missles that have been seen in recent LEGO sets?

The beauty of a LEGO MOC is not the elements that go into it, but the way those elements are put together.

two things
first, do you have a suggestion for a better flamethrower design?
secondly, AT-SD? i like it, sounds cool

uh, i tried a variation of that
that way, the top doesnt close properly,
and the head of the missile pokes out a bit
i think ima add another pic later to show exactly how much room is available (not much)

I think, as far as the flame thrower, just like Jake said, it looks inverted. I would just suggest having the flame come out above the hinge that it attaches to the chassis with. Hot air rises, y'know?
