MMMIG: "Take a Walk on the Wild Side" Edition

Postby phayze81 » Mon Jul 01, 2019 6:59 pm

I was feeling lost (again) this month, so I called for help on Discord, and the community did not disappoint! I got a lot of great suggestions (which will probably all get used in time), but one of Misa's ideas in particular struck me because it's a thing I'd thought about doing in the past, but somehow forgot about. D'oh!

MONSTERS!

Maybe they're Kaiju, maybe they're joined Ijad, maybe they're mechs designed for maximum psychological impact on the battlefield - I don't care, just build something monstrous!

Would a robotic Bull count?

Or maybe an Ink Seeker from the game Bendy and the Ink Machine?

… maybe not monstrous enough. I'll try something else in the near future. 8-)

How about a Watcher from Horizon: Zero Dawn?

For my next submission, I present a true lego monstrosity

The Gahlok Bohrok from Bionicle!

ImageBionicle Gahlok

This creature will strike at any opponent, or any victim unlucky enough to get in it's way

And, if it somehow needs to defend itself, it could always curl into its defensive ball shape

I call this happy little fellow the Ripjaw, inspired by the Sawtooth from Horizon: Zero Dawn. It's more intended for minifig scale, but it fits in the Box if you don't count it's tail and chainsaws.

The 'Stalker'. I made this creepy ijad frame a couple days ago and thought it would be a perfect fit here.

Wow, some of these builds you guys made are really awesome!

Both of these are from preexisting units, but I wanted to add to the bunch :D

I'm sure mostly everyone's already seen it, but I'll share it again! As it seems rather appropriate here. The most recent Phage build.

First off, as a huge classic Bionicle fan, AWESOME JOB ON THAT BOHROK GAHLOK! A+ job!

Second, here's my first submission for the contest! It was a tablescrap among tablescraps... The Wraith!
Image
Loadout:
d6Ra d6Ra d8Ra Kinetic Blast Cannons
d6Rh Spiked Tail
d6Y Subneural Intra-dimensional Vision (I don't know what this would look like, but my description of this is seeing not only in 3 dimensions, but 5.)

I'm probably gonna make something else for this, hopefully some sort of Flood... If not, I might make an Elite.

EDIT: Here's the Elite, facing off with a Spartan Mk. VI Scout!
Image
Loadout:
d6Rd d6Rd Void's Tear (Plasma Pistol)
d6Rh Energy Sword
d6B Energy Shielding
