Woah, really nice, Atavism!

To say you managed a total new look would be an understatement!

The slightly wider legs go really well with the extended arms. It all looks very functional, despite the wild proportions.

Glad you approve! I tried to copy the original legs, but getting him hunched and the arms right wasn't working. Keep up the great work with these guys, btw!

Stratos Avionics is happy to announce a new breakthrough with peaceful Raritanium experimentation.

It has been discovered that the use of especially treated samples across the frame can sustain a field of completely harmless radiation that enhances sensorial functions.

Pictured here is the new EWAC Lockon prototype, first functional unit that takes advantage of such properties.

This actually seems like a really useful loadout. And a cool lockon.
The LF-D5 "Stub" is the top of the line in agriculture frames, designed to haul heavy farm equipment. It is also easy to repair, with standardized connections between all joints. Buy one today.

Also, it's also quite cute on the battlefield....

Thanks!

If you look at Blorf's list, on the Handbook, you'll see that this loadout is already listed as the "Scout". I've used it before, it is a fairly effective support archetype indeed.

Jeeze VitorFaria, your Lockons keep getting better and better. Just when I think you outdid yourself with your previous Lockon, you have to go and shatter the border with a new one. lol. Now I'm eager to see your next creation.

Doing those homage Lockons is certainly fun, you can be sure I'll keep churning more of them with time.

I gotta say, the Lockon is one of my favorite frames and i love how versatile the design is!
Those 1x1 click hinge socket pieces look right up your alley :D
I hope to get some of them soon, as they look incredibly useful.

I don't have access to that part yet, and probably won't for a while, unfortunately.

Decided to make another Atlas inspired Lockon, but this time aiming for a bit more of subtlety, giving it just a few of the same design cues while throwing some novel armor. I'm pretty satisfied with the result.

The Lockon continues to be inspirational. Love the effects as well, fantastic parts usage for the missile.

Thanks, man!

Nice to break out some effects from time to time, but I'm pretty sure I'm not the first to use that missile idea.

"Stratos Avionics is happy to announce the Lockon MkIII frame!"

Sometimes it feels great to go back to our roots. This Lockon harkens back to the original inspiration, it extrapolates some details and takes some considerable poetic license, but I like to believe it carries the spirit of those great green sniper mechs nicely.

Something extra that I only noticed when taking the pics: It can actually store its gun in two different ways on the backpack, which was a nice surprise and bonus.

Also, it was my first time experimenting with those new 1x1 with handles. They give me a second working knee option without breaking the original look!

ok, that dark green with the sniper rifle, I am instantly reminded of some Commando Special Forces unit. lol :lol: I'm loving it!
Also, eventually (if you don't mind) I would like to copy that sniper rifle. That just looks way too good to just pass up

Haha, thanks, Artasid!

I actually spent more time on that rifle than on the frame itself, and still think it can be optimized. Would love to see your take on it.
