Hello there. :classic: This was going to be my entry for the Train Tech contest, but I couldn't get it done in time. So, I took my time to finish it and post it. I was thinking if I should post it in the Train Tech forum, but since this is more an Agents MOC than anything else, I decided to post it here. Anyway, ladies and gentlemen, I give you...

Posted Image

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.

Posted Image

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.

Posted Image

There is one on each side and they can turn 360 degrees. Here is a front view with both of them extracted:

Posted Image

The rear features two jet engines for extra acceleration!

Posted Image

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!):

Posted Image

But what does the mysterious back part of the engine contain? Well...

Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

...only a BIG EVIL LASER CANNON! :devil:

All defense systems online:

Posted Image

"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:

Posted Image

And here is an overview of the entire interior. Note that both walls have magnets so that they hold together better.

Posted Image

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:

Posted Image

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".

Posted Image

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! :devil:

Amazing work, Oky! :wub:

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! :laugh: Black is a difficult colour to photograph but your pics are crystal clear too!

This is just great!  I'm not really an Agents fan, but I do like to see a good Agents MOC, and this deffinetly one of them.  The train is really well designed, and includes a Big Laser Cannon, what more could you ask from an Agents MOC!

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.

Brilliant Oky! This certainly far exceeded what I thought oyu would build, and I had a pretty high margin too! Absolutely love the way you've done the black and orange colour scheme, the front of the train is fabulous, and I love the vilainous details such as the cannons and laser - which is wonderfully melodramatic touch by the by. The fact that the engine is powered by pure evil made me laugh  :laugh:

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!

Batbrick Away!  :devil:

Hello!

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

Cheers,

Wow, that is... Really freaking awesome. Not much else to say about it really. How about a wagon just for Dr. Inferno? He could have a desk, some sort of prison... And of course an escape jet.

Wow!

Did anyone imagined this? :thumbup:

It's really a nice work~

I can feel that you had a hard work on fitting the Lazer gun into the train.

Can you make the Lazer gun more detail for me? :classic:

Thank you~

This is excellent work Oky
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 :wub:  all of the overthe top details ( turbo boosters, guns and equiptment all ending with anator :tongue: )
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 :devil: )

Thanks for the kind comments, guys. :classic: I'm glad you like it so much.

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. :thumbup:

Hilarious and good MOC.  Guess he uses the laser beam to make bigger tunnels for the robot to fit through.   :grin:

Wow Oky when you told me about this over PM I didn't expect something like this! :sweet: This has exceeded my expectations by %100 stunning work! Be sure to add pics on flickr so I can favorite them.
After seeing this creation I feel like I really need Robo attack now. :laugh:

Oh man!
I love this!
I do not why, but I just starred at it for a minute or so, and thats not so often!
Great!

OMG too bad this didn't make it in time.  This is awesome, not asa much a scary train as a cool Agents style train but it's awesome non the less.  I really dig the robot on the train chained down, adn that blaster that comes out of the train is great, it was a nice surprise when scrolling down through the pcis.

Great work!

Hang on a second, I've just got to get this out of the way first.
*ahem*
Muahahahahahaha! AAHHAHAHAHAHA!!!
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.

Love that Santa Fe-style engine.  Overall, a very original design. :thumbup:
