I saw this on the 5 Years Ago Today bit of Explore and was impressed by how up to date it looks, with the ExoSuit being so fashionable. I like how you've made this mobile rockwork with the different shapes and shades of slopes.
Mark Stafford, you blow my mind. And if it's not to much trouble, could you perhaps steel a look at my creation? I only have one because I am new. Could you also comment on it? So I know you saw it. Thanks!

<>I have to ask, do yall get theme ideas from here?<snip>
No. I read a lot, I watch a lot of movies and TV and I play a lot of computer games. they all go in my head, get re-organised and pop out as the stuff I come up with. We have too many ideas of our own to ever steal anyone elses.
Your Mars-Earth war premise is very cool, if you havn't read Kim Stanley Robinsons 'Mars Trilogy' you should, it too starts with teraforming, leads to an independance war and then what comes next, it's very cool and you're already thinking along similar lines.
Wow dude! I love this! I really admire your work and you designed some great power miner sets. You designed the mine mech, didn't you.
I love it!
How many crystal kings would it take to build this? How much would it cost in british pounds?
Because this is absolute AWSOMENESS!
Please can you respond.
Great. An awesome-looking, two-headed rock monster can only mean one thing: more trouble for the miners! (Wonder why LEGO doesn't put more effort in the making of rock beasts, they would really enhance the Miners sets). 5/5, no doubt.
"he has a lot to say but I don't speak monster" hahaha cracked me up... no pun intended (ah heck! who am I kidding? pun definitely intended) I love power miners, I remember someone built a power miners vs rock raiders MOC, heavily biased towards the latter. hopefully general opinion has looked past the fuzzy haze of nostalgia and seen that compared to rockraiders, power miners are teh awesome!
If your the one that made the Crystal King Set, then this is WAY Cooler! Your Crystal King set is good and all, but man, this Crystal Master ROCKS! I don't think people realise how much trouble it takes to design sets, with making sure there's enough play features, instructions, and a reasonably attractive look. If your one of the Power Miner designers, what other sets have you made? Great Beast, I like it!
WWWWOOOOOWWWWW am I going crazy or what, that Crystal Master Monster is WICKED AND AWSOME I LOVE IT; MMMAAANN I wish I had one for this christmas and also I wish it was even out in store's, man that would be so cool. Pros: Big feet, big shoulders, sharp points on the rock crystal masters shoulders, (fingures don't know how to spell that word), two head, big, green, and full of green crystals. Cons: None, Keep up the good work.
great one! i like the two headed thing. it really gives it a different feel from the cruddy little set they released over the summer. could you check out my improved version of that set?
I like it

I don't think the head is a bad brick, but two? Well, two heads are better than one! Rock on! Crystal clear! Oh, wait...I feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place...this guy is stone cold! Good use of unpopular component. Attack!
"From the depths of the Earth comes the Crystal Master! Thought the Crystal King was ruler of the Rock Monsters? Think again! With his two heads he's able to use both sides of his brain at once in his quest to rid his domain of the Power Miners!" Had to say it. Great build! Perfect, I might add, given you helped design the Crystal King.

Did you Design the original set? I know you're one of the set designers for 'Power Miners'. :)
Yes I did! It's kinda weird to see people saying this is how TLG should do it when it was me that did that way! In defense of the set I estimate this MOC (if it was stable enough to be played with by kids) would retail for at least 6 or 7 times the price of the Crystal King!
