[MOC] Mind Bender - Vic Viper

6 posts in this topic

My Novvember build. I call it the Mind Bender, you control it with your mind. There are no hand controls. You lie in stasis and become one with the fighter. It can also serve as a funeral coffin should you fail in battle.

It looks very basic in design, but sometimes the simpler things are more fun.

I like the little trans-lazers, and the orange and white is really nice to look at.

Nnnnnneeeeeeeoww... pew pew, pew pew.

It is fun :D

Very simple, but it's rare that you see a three-exhaust spacecraft MOC, so I've got to give you credit for pulling that off without it looking like a major design fault.

Were you too lazy to build controls in a cockpit? :laugh:

I like the over all shape - but it feels a little ... unfinished.

The top of those wings are just DYING to get a little greebling, or colour striping.

Or even the under side of the cockpit, it would have been funny to actually smooth it out some more so it looks like a coffin (or status pod) with wings :wink:

And you're missing the VV money shot!

Thank you all for the feedback. I made some updates:

Reduced the exhaust to 2 from 3 to make room for an enlarged cockpit.

Added some controls for back up in case of brain fart.

Changed the colour scheme a bit to make use of transpurple cones I recently got from the Pick A Brick wall.

Beautiful. And I know it's a pain to use up trans-purple cones...I bought over 400 of them at my first visit to an official LEGO store.
