Parakeet Light Mecha

Postby Magic Soap » Wed Dec 23, 2009 9:17 am

A new creation by moi, I think it's pretty good and I don't care about criticism.

Image

The Parakeet Light Mecha, designed for close-quarter fighting. Deployed in urban areas, although it can also be used for raids. It is fast, intelligent, lethal. (Note, it is meant to be lanky as hell).

Image

The Parakeet is operated manually, either through suit with monitor, by AI, or by laptop.

Image

Image

Designed by Tsavo industries, it was originally designed to assist metropolice in the tight environments of a city. However, it has been found to be a good scouting unit, and an accurate sniper.

Image

Typical weaponry used are Gauss, Glass and Laser rifles. This is a gauss rifle, which fires a 4mm needle at incredible velocities through the use of a magnetic field. It has been pre-installed with a telescopic sight, although this is detachable, where the iron sight is usable.

Image

The arms are very long, and are adapted to using many weapons. The manipulators are interchangeable, allowing for rotating cutters to be used instead of hands, or a riot shield can be clipped on like Bonn-o-Tron.

Image

Image
Above is the back of the mecha. As you can see, the heavily armoured head has a weakness, allowing shots to hit the "Sense" Centre of the robot. The main Computer and "brain" are in the torso.
Image
Another back view: The stalks fold down for compactness, but when unfolded they pump smoke out, screening the parakeet as it runs through.
Underneath is the power pack, an emergency reserve of power.
Image
The panelling on the face armour is directly linked to the processor, and allows the Parakeet's sensors to link with weaponry. Here you can also see the weapon's smart display in action.
Image
Finally, insignia, the parrot design on the right shoulder, with any unit designs on the left.

This is not for the Albionic Company, this is... something else.

Moar to come.

Some very nice construction ideas... which I have since filed away for future use and consideration. I like this Mech, a lot. It's also nice to see some of your work Magic, your getting quite industrious lately, what with all the sigs and this too.

Well, Warhead, you might like to know you have many of the pieces, as most of this mech is derived from parts from the Star Wars Peach Chicken Walker, you know, from the newspapers.

It's good, but I'm not a fan of the lanky mechs. I tried to make something like this a while ago and it just didn't fly for me. Still pretty neat, though.

Question to everyone: What would you say is the best way to portray black people as LEGO minifigures?

Oooo, controfuckingversial. I have a Mr T I made from when I was 14, he was like Immortal and stuff, but I'm unsure if I can use it, I was going to anyway, I mean, hello! It's me after all. But the thing is I used black marker pen and red ink for the lips, I got the hair good but the rest is nothing short of insulting... and I even realised that. I'll see if I can find him and post it here for the lulz and no doubt abuse.

I like the new peach/browns, they look best, I have no idea what other people think, but that's not unusual at the best of times.

It's just my new army is going to be some form of African army, futuristic and the like. I was thinking most of the grunts can be helmeted, but the others? Basketball players are the better "Peaches", but their faces seem a bit stretched. I AM NOT A RACIST, I myself am coloured.

Basketball players and Lando Calrissian are about as black as Lego people get. There are also the tribal people from the Indiana Jones sets.

Good for you, well done, haz a gold star. :roll:

I like the African Army idea though. Ever watch the Film "Wild Geese?"

Um, here's Mr T. I suck...

Image

...in my defence we didn't have any other colour than yellow when I was a lad and Mr T was one of my Heroes. People were simpler folks before Satellite TV.
