This was a MOC madness for me indeed. I started this ship in early July and finished it yesterday. The build was a real struggle and involved a lot of trial and error. I started having the shape of a Magnaguard in mind and came up with this! Besides all the negative stuff there is some good stuff as well: It's my second biggest build (NCS freighter is the biggest) and the biggest creation in minifig-scale. It has a lot of cool features and is able to transport 6 figures (+1).
The challenge was to build a bounty hunter ship, for a bounty hunter and at least one prisoner.
Name: The Abyssal Rider
Owner: Tief Mantha (bounty hunter)
-removable section to open the prisoner's compartment
-rescue capsule (for 1 fig)
-cockpit holds 2 figs
-prisoner's compartment holds 4 figs

You can separate the rescue capsule from the ship
open it and put the bounty hunter in it.

To show you all the features, I've made a little video. Be sure to watch it!
Congrats on MOTD. I could have sworn I commented on this before but I guess not. Beautiful lines. You have a real nack for creating volume without looking bulky. I can only imagine the challenges with getting this together. I love the playability that it has. My only small suggestion would have been to add some details or greebling inside the air intakes.
Wowowowowow! Not enough WOWs, clearly for that wonderful design! I fell in love with the curves of this ship. And the details are absolutly awesome! You do a great job!!!
Would you come to see my abyssal submarine too?
I like it

Hey, dass Louis li'l sohn pistole ist endlich da! Sah es auf YouTube schon, aber groBartige Arbeit!~Soap
clean shape and nice functionality, I really like white parts because you just can do anything with it (availability), but what you did isn't just a question of 'how many rounded white bricks I have?', it's tricky and very creative, so good..
Prince Charles turned into a Spaceship! These are no intakes, these are ears, right? No?! Hmmm. Whatever, a very interesting vessel. Love that spades shape and the nifty feature it contains. Awesome work! ~Greetings, Marc
