Was fiddling with the collection, and decided the Ifrit Chub custom was alittle over the top and wanted to tone it down some back to its Chub base. Threw the Heavy Arms Gatling shield I made forever ago on it, and added a sutiable combat knife.

The Ifrit is a front line point Chub designed to engage with the dual Gatling guns while spotting for heavier frames. Once the shield and guns have been sacrificed, the frame speeds in unencumbered by the weight of the previous systems and finishes off the primary opponent with its combat knife or captures a vulnerable station.

Presenting the CKI CK-04r Racing Chub
Designed for Rooftop Racing
Modified from the standard CK-04 Chub by adding Impact-Charged Accelerator Coils to the thighs, and using light-weight titanium alloy lower legs in place of the Chub's normal legs.

Leave the rest behind as you bound to victory across the rooftops in this top of the line Racing Frame


A simple modification to the Chub's legs to give it a more "athletic" feel. Also because I've written rules for Rooftop Racing :D
I'm also not very good at writing fluff :(
Rooftop Racing Rules (Version 0.4.0) Version 0.5.0 coming soon, with some big changes.

Superchub ver.Zv d6W d6W d6Rd d6Rd d6Y d6Y d6G (There's thrusters attached to the backs of the legs for that green die).

This design started as a Superchub. I modified it a lot to get what we see here; pretty much the only holdover from the original Superchub is the use of two taps in the chest to hold the shoulders on. Nevertheless, I think I've retained a lot of the iconic 'superchub feel' by keeping the frame capable of doing all kinds of tacticool poses. (It's about the same height as a superchub, as well.)

Also, I'm telling you, those fireman mask pieces are crazy useful as greebling resources. You all need to go pick some of them up because daaamn.

Chub Bouncer(s) d6W d6W d6Rd d6Rd d6Rh d6Rh d6B d6G (all the weapons are paired but could be two split systems)

Initially built as an attempt to use up my remaining parts, these Chubs were designed to fight in space rather than under gravity. Using the closer build, all of their weapons are paired (twin reinforced fists, twin arm-mounted machineguns). These actually have stands and extra pieces for flight (a 2x2 trans dark blue dish on each foot) but i didn't have them on hand at the time. The fist design was taken from GarudaEX's Striker weapons.

1. That is awesome.

2. Definitely going to have to look into getting a handful of those.

3. Are those maxifig ball-joint hands in the feet?

Here's the breakdown! The feet are indeed maxifig hands. After playing around with them I found that putting a cheese wedge on them made them significantly more stable, so that's what I did. There's also a maxifig hand in the neck joint, but you could conceivably replace that with the usual chub head setup.

The arms are simple; the fireman mask is pinned in place by the headlight brick's ridge and the claw. Any piece with a rod extension that can go into the headlight brick's side stud can be used to pin the mask in place.

What's the Bricklink code for the maxifig hands? Can't seem to find these.

I'm digging those Hero Factory wings. Are they attached to the back or coming off the arms?

The first series of blind polybags. From this set in fact.

They come off the tops of the arms.

ImageChub with new armor touches by The Hydromancer, on Flickr

ImageChub back by The Hydromancer, on Flickr

Was working on what the next standard UMFL iteration of the Chub might resemble. Additional armor around the waist and upper legs protect the joints, and a touch extra armor was added to the shoulders. The feet are longer to add balance given how heavy the frame is. The shield has an adjustable front end to protect the arm, and can be set up as mobile cover. All armor additions are slated or curved to help better deflect attacks.

Really happy with how the waist armor came out, really adds a gundam feel to the build. I find it difficult if not impossible to improve upon the rifle Soren designed, so no changes there.

I'm a big fan of the Chub and I've built a few. Most of my Chubs, though, are pretty standard builds and don't belong in this thread, but here are a couple of my more tricked-out builds:

I was running low on taps, but had plenty of t-pieces, so I built this chub with zizzy-inspired arms and t-piece hips:

I wasn't completely happy with this build, and have since rebuilt it as a standard Chub. But I'll be reusing that arm construction (or something like it) again.

This build, inspired by Malcolm Craig's Chub, I'm much happier with:

I'm gonna play around with this (it could use some chunkier arms) and build a few more, as the core of a free colonies company made up of refurbished civilian frames and rebuilt battlefield salvage.
