I've found that a lot of mocs are more fragile than they appear. It's always nice to have something huge be solid and free standing, but I'm fine with a stand if required. You guys are building impossible machines. I won't fault them for bending to the laws of physics.

And about the cockpit controls, I like to see some sort of effort to make the interiors look "realistic", but we're in an age where even out cell phones look like a plate of black glass when switched off so I won't be disqualifying anyone for skimping on buttons and levers.

"Hi I'm the Wasp! And you've just been STUNG"
This mech might be small but packs a punch. Let's take a look at what we have here.

In Wasp's arms are two detachable guns available for use while not operating the mech:
PAC, Particle accelerator cannon and
DBR, Double barrel rifle, short

Mounted on Wasp's shoulders are its bread and butter:
HfR, High-frequency railgun (left)
RSC, Rapid-fire Spreader Cannon (right)

Special Features:
Extended Antennae: Enables precise accuracy and detects homing projectiles.
Hyper Flutter Wings: Enable aerial flight. Intensify nimble aerial tactics.
Booster Boots: Enhance highly agile and evasive maneuverability in air and space.
Engineered Toxic Stinger: Last defense if disarmed.


Fun note: 317 pieces

@Davedude: isn't that the lex luthor mech?

@midi: I don't think you would have to change it. that was just my suggestion.

@Master Beef: There's more coming, though. Mine, for instance (hopefully). :)

@artpants1: I was hoping someone would do a doc ock mech. I have to say, also, I love your mods on the minifigure!
Thought you'd like this about the Vatican cameos.

lots of cool entries coming in, keep it up guys. fbtb has laid out some sweet prizes that deserve to be hard fought over. Even by mechs that have trouble standing up =) Thankfully mine stands up fine. I can even put him in some dramatic action poses.... ..... ..... ..... until i try to pose the freeze cannon. then he falls over more than joe pesci did in home alone. oh well. i can always fall back on the secondary polar bear weapon system and skate around on his hovercraft feet

Also, remember guys there is nothing that says the mech has to be the traditional "humanoid" (2 arms, 2 legs) shape, just minimum two legs are required. Just look at my mech, it's an insectoid with 6 legs, which allows my surprisingly heavy mech to still stand under its own weight. Or even Igginz future submission which looks somewhat traditional but has 3 legs.

Moral of the story, if you are having trouble, try to be unconventional while still following the rules. I just recently this year started building seriously and have slowly accumulated a meager collection, so I chose an unconventional mech which was much more fun to build in my opinion, and gave me the best shot I had with my limited resources available.

Also, on that same point, I agree with zhouston in that I worked very hard to follow the rules regarding cockpits (fully enclosed, controls, etc.) and I'm sure it will be a big consideration for everyone when it comes to voting. Again if this is a problem for you, think outside the box a little and don't be afraid to show it off.

I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm ranting, but this is my first major MOC contest and I see this as a learning experience for me. With that in mind, I just want to make sure everyone is having as much fun as possible while still following the rules.

yup I agree with MotionOfTheOcean I thought seriously about a 3 or 4 legged chassis. The engineer in me would let me do three legged cause the walking motion just doesn't make sense, and ultimately I lacked the parts for four sturdy legs. Most of my build is from 6866 Wolverines Chopper Showdown, and MBA kits 1-6. Lots of neat entries I was pretty intimidated putting my mech up. Hopefully I'll be able to get some better pics up on Flicker.

Can we change our main three pics if we get better ones before the deadline as long as the post keeps the specified three only pics? Had to get mine up quick as I'm in the storm path.

Raven's "Shadow Beast" (Hero)




The cockpit is in the back, and detaches as an escape vehicle (... as Raven is used to fighting through an out-of-body "soul-self", this rear-facing configuration does not cause her any disorientation). Click on picture to see the cockpit detached.

Bizarro’s Mego-Bananas mech (villain)


by , on Flickr
(the reddish glow in the chest is a light brick / power source)

Bizarro saw Lois Lane on TV doing a story on monkeys and their endangered habitat. Lex Luthor also appeared promoting his new green-energy Power Armor. Being Bizarro, he assumed Luthor planned to attack Lois. But, how to beat Lex’s Power Armor? Just then a mysterious meteorite with red energy crystals – from a “galaxy far far away” – fell near his Graveyard of Solitude. “Red stop green! Bizarro stop Luthor. Bizarro save Lois!”

Bizarro came up with an idea for his own armor to defeat Luthor. “Lois like monkeys. Monkeys like bananas. Bizarro use ‘bananas’ to stop Luthor. Bananas!!” Thus was born, Bizarro’s Mego-Bananas!!!!

Mego-Bananas is an transformable mech – like a primate, it can stand on two legs, or it can function on 4 legs.

Weapons / Armaments include:

-Main chest “S” firing laser beam
-Double barreled laser guns on each wrist
-Missile cannon on right shoulder
-Attack chain with two large meteorite fragments
-Massive crushing hammer
-Quad blade slicer
-“Angry Gorilla” charge attack
-Jet flight pack
-Hydraulic jump equipped lower legs
-Dual “butt” cannons

and, “Bananas” final weapon . . .

-“Death Blossom” multi-directional missile attack

Now, witness the awesome power of – not one – but two fully functional Death Star meteorites!
