The Big Blue Behemoth Crawler.. thing.. of Doom!

Postby Dr. X » Mon May 19, 2008 2:47 pm

A few days ago I was bored out of my skull. Then I remembered an old saying:

When in bored, build Legos.


So I dumped out a huge box of Legos, and I saw all those brown hull pieces. I wanted to use them for something, so I took a rock raiders care plate and and put on the brown thing and started building. I built in in blue because I had a lot of blue bricks. At the end, it surprised me how awesome it was.

So I called it the Big Blue Behemoth.. Crawler.. thing.. of Doom! Or just BBB for short. I use it to crush people in underground tunnel wars. Here it is:

Image
It's big. And blue. It kind of looks like an undergroundish something, doesn't it?


Image


Image
It has a big butt.


Image
That opens. This is how the troops disembark.


Image
It has one .70 gigawatt laser cannon on the top. You can probably also tell there is something under those doors.


Image
Yup, you guessed it, twin .70 cal machineguns! (Yes I know they're a bit small for .70 cal machineguns but they are!)


Image
I built the top to be sturdy, but easily removable. That red thing on the top is a counterweight. (all the weight of the car is in front of the wheels, and this weight piece helps balance it out. I still needed to put slidey circles under the front though)


Image
The inside. Pretty normal, just a rack of 7.0 gigawatt blasters and a jetpack. And the cockpit. It can carry about 7 troops if they all cram in there.


Image
I put cattle horns on the front for Bad@$$ness. If this thing ever joined the street gang they would be unstoppable.
I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

Everything is following the rule of the 7. And some people say 7 isn't a magical number.

Anyways, awesome build and idea!

it actually looks like you could kick ass with this thing both on land, underground, and on water.

Personally I'd ditch the horns and the turret. The only weapon that thing needs is its sheer size. Can you say "roadkill"? =P

But really, it's pretty cool looking. The brown works surprisingly well with it, though I'd suggest putting some brown pieces on the back end to balance it out a bit better. Overall, I quite like it.
Well what've we got here....

Yes, I was thinking of throwing away the horns but the front looks kinds empty without them. And the turret is for blasting things in the air that it can't ram.

I like it- "Big Blue Behemoth" works. The horns remind me a bit of tusks, a pair of which might help fill up the emptiness if you remove the horns. Then it would look a bit like a warthog, which would be pretty cool too.

yeah, I think tusks would look more in place there, instead of those smallish horns.

Smallish horns make the thingol look JAINORMOUS.

AWESOME.

Thanks Blitzen. :D

But now I can't decide if I should take the horns off, cut them in half and stick them on the front like one of the cars in the Street gang, or keep them there. Or maybe I'll keep the horns there, AND put some cut ones on like Bonn-o-Tron. Then the whole front will be really spikey, or any minifigs who decide to jump really high when this thing is coming at them.

Not cut horns- I'm thinking a 1x1 cone and a 1x1 cylinder or something like that. They've got to fit the scale of the vehicle!
