Moko‘s latest mecha goes against the spiky, chunky norm of most current mecha with lots of rounded corners.
It’s been a while since we featured works by the Japanese master builder Moko. Those who know him knows that he builds a plethora of themes, but I never thought I’d see this!
It’s been a while since Matt (aka lowlead) built, but he shows that he’s still got the skills, in fact… amazing skills! Matt’s AT-AT has been evolving for more than seven years, and the latest v4.0 shows the AT-AT in it’s fullest grandeur.
Here’s more information on this model:
“Although somewhat conventional in construction by today’s standards, this MOC represents more than seven years of evolution and has been a favorite of mine ever since version 1. When I first saw Dave Eaton and Shaun Sullivan’s Hoth diorama, I had to build a UCS style AT-AT of my own.
v4.0 better represents the actual ILM models with a re-designed head, legs and drive cams that articulate in the manner they do in EpV, a new neck, a higher center body section, and a completely re-designed drive section using some metallic wheel hubs from the Silver Champion race car.
Due to weight (it’s reeeeeely hefty) and structural issues, this remains a sculpture MOC, with no interior…for now.
The only disadvantage of fully poseable legs is the mandatory support stand. While it stands free when the legs are positioned straight, the doubled-up clicky joints just aren’t hearty enough to support its weight when the knees are bent, or the legs positioned fore or aft.”
Krush is rapidly becoming one of my favorite builders. His newest creation depicts lovers from rival clans, in a secret, snowy meeting.
This is the third time I blogged Noddy in what seems like such a short time frame, but his recent vignettes are so sentimental and nostalgic. It’s soft of me to say that, but one’s gotta take a break from all the space shooters and war-bots once in a while.
For the life of me, I still can’t get any video to embed, so I guess you’ll have to just click the link for now. D’oh!
EDIT (AB): Embedded. :)
Jarek (aka Jerac) presents another impressive addition to his fleet of microscale spaceships. This one’s a second version of his original Behemoth gas miner, now called the Behemoth II. According to the builder, the ship “features hangar, detacheable containers and… detacheable details if held incorrectly :>”
May you eat like a troll and weigh in like a pixie!
