[MOC] Walking tank

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all.

I thought I'd post my new moc. It's a sc-fi world war 2 tank. It does have some unofficial minifigures in it which I hope does not upset the purists too much. Hope you like it :)

This is awesome! I can't tell because of the angle, is it three legs or four?

Thanks, it has 4 legs.

I think there are quite a few keen eyed Lego fans around here that would spot that right away :head_back:

Congrats on being front paged and I love the design.......reminds me in a way of the walking tanks from 2012 cartoon take on World Of The Worlds set in 1914 in a steam punk world.

Awesome!

I think that people that build WW2 inspired stuff are a little more forgiving regarding non official mini figs for soldiers. Lets hope that extends to sci-fi flavoured WW2 builds too.

Hey thanks. I just checked out the 2012 War of the Worlds and I can totally see what you mean.

When you say unofficial, do you mean like they're custom/ modified.Or do you mean off brand like megablocks? That wording is just odd.

There are people do obsessed with Lego, they can tell the difference between official 1-1 studs and off brand 1-1 studs

Really cool mecha tank, I like how  you used an upside-down build to make the lower half of the tank's main body as well as the smooth integration of the Bionicle/Buildable Action Figure parts into the build.  I'm also guessing that the torsos for your British troops are BrickArms/Brickmania custom prints?
 
It's nice to see someone else around here who does Weird War type builds. :D

Sweet! :sweet: I'm rather surprised this (a Dieselpunk mecha of all things) had escaped my attention... :thumbup: :oh3:

I always love creations that make usage of arch brick 87559; and being a WWII-themed four-legged walker, I'm reminded of Tyler Clites' Walking Pillbox... :wink:

Glad you like it. I think the troops are Brickmania, I got the from Amazon. I do like a good diesel punk moc too.

Yes the big arch brick is a great piece for rounding out forms.

Tyler seems to have build something from every genre in sci fi and pop culture and done it brilliantly too.

Wow, I love this kind of thing. It seems like something out of The Lego movie, but more violent. Gosh, this is really cool. 

Glad you like it :classic:
