^Very nice. Not only is it cool seeing the awesome mechs, but I also love seeing the custom minifigures.

This is only my 2nd Moc, and don't think I'm going to finish on time. :(
My fault, started too late on it.

You just need to do a few all-nighters (like me!) and you'll finish - but be very tired for work. :x

Astronauts are trained underwater. And the underwater depths can be a good place to test and develop spacecraft. Check on YouTube for videos showing famous spaceships "flying" underwater as RC subs.

Black Manta is one of those characters I hope to see someday as an official minifig.

I think your mech and my mech should get together! http://www.flickr.com/photos/sasklegous ... 815966346/

There a lot of street crime out there!

I see. And I agree about the minifig.

I don't remember that they were supposed to go into space, but if so, it seems this one is well prepared :)
And, I also agree about an official Black Manta minifig.

yeah it never said the mech was spacefaring, just that it should be able to deal with the object (which could be in space, or in earth's atmosphere, or in mephisto's realm... who knows what's going to happen)

I submit a mech which proves size doesn't matter. Ant-Man (Hank Pym) in his microscopic form, no longer wanted his insect friends in harms way. With peril on the horizon and the death of his winged ant Korr still looming over him, he used his biochemical and engineering expertise to design himself a bionic ant mech suitable for use in many environments and with many powerful weapons. The "Fire-Ant" can burrow its way through any situation and use its powerful pincers with immense cutting/crushing force to immobilize any enemy from within. Also, just as with any ant, the Fire-Ant can not only carry objects many times its weight, but infused with Pym Particles, it possesses super human strength as an extension of Ant-Man himself. If this is not enough, true to its name, the Fire-Ant sports dual flame throwers which can burn/melt its way through any obstacle. Using these weapon and his keen intellect, Ant-Man can take on any foe in either all out assault, or stealthily from within.

^Awesome.
^^ and ^^^ I guess it never said that, I just assumed, since the object is in space.

Haven't taken final pics, but I've uploaded a couple of pics of my Poison Ivy mech. Maybe it's called The Flower Powerwalker? I dunno. My flickr name is Iggins

I wasn't sure if it was appropriate to paste a link since it's not my final submission pictures...

Right on! Thanks for checking it out; I'll post it there until I have nice pictures.

And ya... I don't know why I thought I was Iggins, I even double checked it, or so I thought...
