For round 2 of the 2011 MocOlympics currently taking place at MOCPages, I and my opponent were tasked with building a mecha for one of the released collectible minifigures. I found the absurdity of a mecha using fitness instructor quite appealing, and jumped at the opportunity to build something pink.

When the Mecha Corps realized that their mecha drivers were getting lazy and fat they decided to try an unorthodox approach to dealing with the problem and hired a civilian fitness instructor to give the soldiers some excersise. Unfortunately they didn't quite get what they anticipated..

This design reeks of awesomeness, from the speakers to the cassette player hanging from the middle. It's the Simmons-bot!

That's a really special creation! :classic: It's an original and very funny idea. I like the little radio you have attached and the colour scheme is just perfect. :wink:

Verily, that is a pink mecha. The fitness regime for the Exo Force team must be quite the work out  :laugh:

I like the articulation and colour scheme, good luck with the MOC olympics.

I never really like the mechas since it always seems that they all look the same and they are rarely memorable, but this one truly had me giggling and will NOT be forgotten!

You should definitely win this competition!

Oh the joy coming from this! If your MOC was a set, I would SO buy it! I can imagine legions of scared women in front of this, doing what the Mecha does to be left alive - brilliant!
