Dr. Inferno's Cargo Train of DOOM!
Posted 07 November 2009 - 07:36 AM
What did Dr. Inferno do when those pesky Agents busted his Volcano Base? He moved of course, and in order to carry all of his belongings with him, he built himself a Santa-Fe style cargo train.
But this is no ordinary train! It is packed with the latest in supervillain technology, including hidden auto-defense turrets that pop out from the side of the engine.
There is one on each side and they can turn 360 degrees. Here is a front view with both of them extracted:
The rear features two jet engines for extra acceleration!
Now let's take a look inside, shall we? Here we can see one of Inferno's henchmen at the controls and the engine (which is powered by pure EVIL!):
But what does the mysterious back part of the engine contain? Well...
...only a BIG EVIL LASER CANNON!
All defense systems online:
"Those Agents can't repel firepower of this magnitude! Victory is mine! MUAHAHAHA!"
Here you can see how the cannon is stored inside the vehicle:
And here is an overview of the entire interior. Note that both walls have magnets so that they hold together better.
I was going to enter the engine on its own in the second category, but after the deadline past and I wasn't building this for the contest anymore, I decided to extend it to include cargo wagon for the Inferno Mech and some extra storage space. And this is it:
Here it is without the mech. This pic also gives us a closer look at the storage crates. This is where Inferno has put all his various other belongings: tools, gadgets, death rays, valuables, explosives, and lots of things that ends with "-anator".
That's it for now. For more pics, you can visit this Brickshelf folder. C&C welcome.
Farewell, and don't let those ratchet Agents get you. Evil for the win!

This is a fantastic combination of a MOC and the official set. Everything looks great and the train is a sweet design too. I love the sleek nose contrasted with the rough and ready chains holding down the Robo Attack mech. The official decals blend in seamlessy and the action functions are a must-have in any Inferno set! Black is a difficult colour to photograph but your pics are crystal clear too!

Powered by Pure Evil? That must cut the fuel bills a little!
You have put a smile on my face on a very wet and cold morning.

The mech-carrying carriage is a great idea and you've certainly done it justice even if there isn't much actual detail on the carriage. The use of the squatting position for them ech and chains is very neat, as are the crates packed with weaponry.
My only gripe is that it feels as if the back is missing, I think it just needs a final carriage in the same vein as the front, though I can understand that you might be low on required bricks. That said an amazing and hilariously over-the-top job, I think Inferno has made a good choice with this one!

You added a lot of concealed details in your engine, giving it a lot to discover. Let's hope there won't be a tunnel on the way which could mean the end to that wonderfully designed mecha warrior. That tiny little orange tipper waggon is my most favourite detail here.

To star I love the thought of Inferno riding a train with a big megablox gun in the *word for first part of train* (srry I don't know hardly anything about trains) it's just such an epic thought. and if Inferno were to have a locomotive (I think that's a synonim for train) I think it would look just like this. I can't get ove the very front of the first car; it looks so nice and futuristic. What I realy like is your use of those old magnet peices that only ever apeared in about 5 themes. I all of the overthe top details ( turbo boosters, guns and equiptment all ending with anator )
Speaking of over the top, the way you incomperated the Mech is *Perfect* .
I too feel that you shoul add a third car to the end, perhaps for his minions or a robeot control deck or something else EVIL
(because evil is just more fun )

Yes, the front came out very good, but to be fair, I must say that its design is based on the official Santa-Fe. It's not the same, but similar.
As for a passenger wagon: I was thinking about that, and I agree that it would enhance the train a lot, but I'm a little busy right now. Maybe I'll make one during Christmas break.

After seeing this creation I feel like I really need Robo attack now.

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”

Ahh... Gotta love the evil laugh -- don't knock it 'till you've tried it, folks.
Right then, the MOC.
To put it simply, this is brilliant. All of it.
The beautiful color scheme, the jets, the details (nice use of the display sticker from Robo Attack in the control panel), not to mention the freakin' lazer beams!
The shape of the locomotive's nose is perfect, much smoother than the Santa Fe you based your design on, and your use of the printed "T" tile is great.
From a functional standpoint, I can see that with the weapons systems deployed, clearances might be a bit of an issue.

Wait, what's that up ahead? No! Quickly, retract the weapons, before it's too---

On behalf of Train Tech, on this day of November 11, 2009, I hereby grant to you an honorary train tag for this most unique and creative train.
Love that Santa Fe-style engine. Overall, a very original design.

Thanks to everyone else as well! I'm glad you all like it so much and I will consider your suggestions when I update the train.

Nice work, the train looks very sleek, and the colour scheme works well.
