MOC: Project GSV
Posted 24 December 2010 - 01:19 PM
I'm new to these boards and would like to show off a few of the MOCs I recently cobbled together in LDD Universe Mode. As it stands I cannot upload photographs of any actual bricks because I no longer own any and cannot presently afford to buy new sets to 'restart' my old collection. I sincerely hope that an all-LDD MOC collection won't offend anyone's sensibilities.
These MOCs are part of a theme of mine, called Project GSV. They are mostly humanoid bipedal robots with a distinctly Eastern feel to them.
First up is my GVX-06 Tornado (LXF File). This particular unit is capable of transforming into a compact Aerofighter Mode. Pictured here are both of its modes.
Next up is the GVX-07 Nightmare (LXF File), which features a strange set of retractable grappling claws as greaves on its double-jointed legs. That feature took a very long time to successfully implement.
After that is the GVX-05 Threshold (LXF File). I wanted to build something with a tons of grenades just for the fun of it, and this it what got turned out.
Finally, my GVX-04 Leviathan (LXF File). An aquatic unit with an experimental color scheme, I tossed a pair of torpedo launchers on the shoulder just to offset the angles of the body pointing down.
I had a larger theme going that was comprised of over 150 LDD models, but it felt as if I was upgrading the same set of five robots over and over again, locking myself into a closed design cycle. I decided to archive them and scrap the series in order to free myself up to build more unique one-off designs. The kits posted here are the result of that desire to build whatever I wanted, free from self-imposed restraint.

Thank you very much, Mr. KielDaMan. These are ostensibly inspired by Gundam, as I picked up scale model building in high school. Ironically enough, mecha models replaced LEGO as my dominant hobby, but I've decided that there's room in my heart for both. If I ever do start buying real bricks to work with, I'll have to pick up a little expansion set of Mega Bloks to augment the LEGOs, since the boys at Takara Tomy actually molded a Mega Bloks Gundam v-fin and other officially-licensed Gundam bricks that are compatible with LEGO system!

GVM-02 Astra (LXF File); I felt like building a simplified mass-production style robot.
GVX-01 Vector (LXF File); A multi-role machine with a small handful of powerful armaments.
GVX-03 Templar (LXF File); A close-quarters combat machine, the Templar's primary blade also sports a beam pistol as a medium-range sidearm.
