About this creation

Archnoid Recreation

I wanted to re-present (present again) the aliens I created back in 2009. They are the weaponeers of the Web Galaxy and are responsible for the creation of the Spiderbots used in my version of the Space Skulls storyline.

The basic design here is (nearly) identical to the original, however after uploading the images I've noticed some very slight differences which are so minor as to only be noticeable to me.

The thinking behind the design was that the Spiderbots, which don't actually look like spiders, were actually designed to resemble their creators.

As such, their creators had to include features which were common to the Spiderbots, such as multiple limbs, trunk like torsos and crested heads.

They are Cyclopean in appearance, with hands on the end of each limb, giving them tremendous versatility.

The recreation shown is an update of the original Weaponeer. Other designs including soldiers and the Emperor were also created back in 2009.

I fully intend to update the concept, as I'm unhappy with aspects of the design.

Mostly, I was never satisfied with the limited choice of parts available back in 2009 in the creator theme. With the (nearly) unlimited choice of parts in the extended theme, I feel I could do the concept much better.

One thing I do need to change is that the basic Weaponeers were intended to interact with the Space Skulls minifigs. As you can see from the comparison shots, they are nearly twice as tall as a minifig.

2013 updated design

Updated design features greater posing options.

Altered colour scheme, but not too far removed from the original.

The new design is also much closer to minifig sized, making interaction with the Space Skulls easier.

But both designs retain the visual cues to know it was they who designed the Spiderbots, and are close enough to the old designs as to be a related species, if you wish to retain both designs as official.

A neat little design. The older one looks quite friendly, in a way, whereas the newer is definitely a bit creepy and evil.
