Suggested theme song: WolfMother - Pleased to meet you


Ladies and Gentlemen (if any  ;-) ), I'm here to introduce you the Ultimate Whacking Battle Machine [drum rolls]

This project was originated by my first story, and is meant to by a present to Hinckley for his B-day, so I called it Hinckley Special

Posted Image

Here is a detail of the cockpit, with Hinckley in his new suit. This piece of high-technology replaces standars controls: when you make a move, the sensors in the gap between the outer and inner layers pick it up and transmit it to the BM's control unit.
The microphone and a hud display, which reads eyes' movements, complete the control system.

Posted Image

The BM comes with its own special equipment. A big hammer is always an useful tool for professional whackers.

Posted Image

Please note the knee joint protections and the leg thrusters, which give it the propre sprint to run away from the whacking scene if things get nasty.

Posted Image

This machine features a nice detachable backpack...

Posted Image

...in which you can find a pleasing bonus...

Posted Image

...a robot-Hinckley  8-° !

Posted ImagePosted Image

Back to the equipment, by removing the left arm laser...

Posted ImagePosted Image

...you get a minifig-size replica of the hammer,

Posted Image

which can be used both by the robot-Hinckley and Hinckley himself.

Posted ImagePosted Image

Cause, let's say this: a good whacking is always welcome.

Posted Image

More pics here.

Hope you all will enjoy it, and once again Happy Birthday Hinckley!


References:
- the hammer is ripped off the fantastic review of set 7036 by Hinckley himself
- the arms are just n arrangement of original Supernova
- all that remains comes from random thoughts I had during one of my 2 hours train travels back home (daily routine  |-/ )

:-$ Wow again! I am really surprised that people have done this. LuxorV, thank you so much. It's a great MOC in the first place, but it's really thoughtful of you. Very very thoughtful! I'm trying to be masculine about this stuff, but you guys with your surprise MOCs are really getting me choked up. This is an exceptional and well thought out creation too. You are pretty dern smart when it comes to building a mech...not to mention it's very creative and funny. I'm just at a loss for words. I can't thank you enough, though... Wow! WOW!

Thanks, boys :-$

You're flooding me with compliments, but it was just a funny building inspired by the story and the great Dwarves Mine Review and Comic :-$ .
Then I discovered Hinckley's B-day was just round the corner, so I waited a few days and posted it as a present ;-) .

I'm happy you liked it so much *wub* .

As for being "pretty dern smart when it comes to building a mech", I started building meches one year ago, after being ignominously beaten in all categories in the MechaHub Exo-Force Build-off Contest... |-/  :'-(  I wanted to improve and see if I could reach a competitive level. And it's real fun, too :-P

Well, I´m not that much into Robots/Exoforce, but this one is really outstanding! *y*  *wub*

Great job, LuxorV, I like it very much.
You have a good eye for neat details and the little Hinckley is a very friendly touch to our birthday fellow.

Very nice! A Hinckley in a HinckleyMech carrying a HinckleyBot. It's all very... Hincktastic!

I can't believe you lost a bunch of mech competitions with this kind of skill. Maybe it's time to enter another. *y*

Oh, I didn't have 'this kind of skills' (or had not realized I had them, yet) when I partecipated the contest. In truth, my MOCs were quite horrible, expecially compared to those by expert mecha-builders *sad* .

Let's say I have now found my way in mecha-building :-$  :-P

And yes, as soon as we will have a mecha contest, count me in the number :-D

Yes this is another excellent exo-MOC LuxorV!  :'-)
Sorry I haven't commented earlier!  :-$

The details are excellent, and the Techno-Hinckley is done well. That Hinck-bot is cute!  *wub*
The Giant hammer and minifig hammer are certaintly a treat and well suited.

Good job!

And even though I am not a very good mecha builder myself, I am all for a competition! So I can improve my skills and make everyone else look good!  :-D

I think this idea would be great for a group project or a contest.
Creating mechs, who are representing EB members. ;-)

I like the sound of that, although I'm not sure how I'll make the robot arm stand out from the... other robot arm... I'll work on it! :-D  *y*

You don't have to do one from another member. ;-) You could build yourself.
I've planned the contest for the contestants that they ether can build another member or themself. ;-)
