Is that poor spacegoer about to get squashed in a fit of rage by some huge malevolent spider-bot? No! That is the Big Bug Broadcast Bot filming our local news anchor-woman.
About this creation
This was the first thing I started working on after the civilian contest was announced. It was also the last thing I completed before the contest ended.
The idea behind it is that the bot can operate as its own news team. It can be dispatched from the station, cover any type of terrain, film the action, and broadcast that signal back to the station all without any support. It can also work as part of a news team, acting as cameraman, mixing station, broadcaster, etc.
Wow, that's great! It's a pity when great MOCs like this get insufficient recognition. Wonderful job; you really captured the Classic Space theme. Looks great; nice greebles. One criticism, though: The dual cameras look better suited to be the head (has that spindly, gawky look- which is classic spacey). The red eye should be the cam... or a stun-cannon to zap disheveled violent moon-goers frustrated with slow internet speed provided by bug-bot.
Pretty cool and well thought out. I like it when random robots and things have some reasoning behind them. Too bad about the legs collapsing though. And the long neck thing looks really un-spider-ly...
