A fictional character from Transformers series. Distant cousin of Blurr, but blessed with extreme agility, high-tech weaponry and superspeed spacecraft
About this creation
Mercurion is a retool of my recent MOC , Neo Blurr. I found out
the core-structure (or "protoforms" in Transformers universe) of the latter to
be very versatile. Mercurion was born out of "unused" ideas for Blurr (I didn't
want to apply too many 'radical' enhancements to Blurr to avoid making him unrecognisable
), especially the front mounted six-barrel cannons.
This project of mine was done in 3 nights, a real quickie indeed. (it's meant
for a facebook competition by the way :)
His transformation sequence mimics Neo Blurr, so I didn't
bother to snap and compile the transformation photos for Mercurion.
ABILITIES/WEAPONS (in all modes)
"Sixshooter" weapons comprised of (2 each) plasma, thermolaser and
Lightning redirector attracts up to 5000 megawatts of lightning bolt and
redirect them to intended target 2km away.
Heavily fortified Cybertronium armour plating can sustain multiple hits
from most Decepticon weapons.
Holographic generator/device allows Mercurion to take shapes of any
object he see (and recorded), for up to 1 hour.
IN SPACECRAFT MODE
front mounted "Sixshooter" cannons for direct attack.
3 missile pods on each wing with autotargeting abilities.
Maximum speed of up to 10% of speed of light (20%, for a short-burst).
Resistant to head-on collisions.
IN HOVER MODE
Can make a 360 degree turn on the same spot
Deployable "Sixshooter" cannons if required.
Highbeam searchlight with infrared ability to illuminate/locate target
High intensity dispensers:
Water for fire-fighting
Super cooled nitrogen for freezing
Super heated chemical to melt through most enemy's armour.
IN ROBOT MODE
backmounted "Sixshooter" weapons can be deployed on the shoulder, or
Missile pods located on legs with heat seeking abilities.
Highly athletic and agile:
Enhanced suspension/hydraulic mechanism on legs allows him to jump
Jet booster on legs can increase jumping height up to 2km each
"Hands of Primus":- convertable into various shape and tools (such
as handsaw or drill), with suction
ability for wall climbing.
Sharp infrared and infrablue vision to detect enemies behind 5 feet
thick wall 500m away.
Overconfidence in Mercurion sometimes cause him to prematurely expose
himself to the enemies/hit the wrong target
Wings suffers from stress fraction if burst-mode flight is used often.
His holographic self sometimes locks into place, preventing him for
returning to his actual mode.
And here's the contest entry I'm talking about just now :)
OH MY GOD!!! This is awsome, and for a retool, it still looks totally original! Great work, as always ha
Later today I'm uploading a helicopter transformer which might just be my best work yet, so I hope you check it out :)
