Equipped for surveillance and theft missions when backup is unlikely to be available, the 'Spy-Mech' is built for remote or direct infiltration and is a spiritual evolution of my first ever Blacktron set, the Sub-Orbital Guardian.
About this creation
At 931g, this is my largest model yet and with such a top-heavy design, gravity is a constant enemy. The model is still quite poseable though. Noticeable front features are the original sub-orbital guardian canopy, the sensor bar above it which only fits with thinner 1980's '1x1 with loop' plates, a 'B' built from Bright Yellowish Green studs and the power source chamber just above the pilot's head.
On the right, the arm has a flip-out microphone and 'stun bolter'. The shoulder mounted 'electron reorganiser' targert electron streams within computers and re-configures them to send false instructions to the processor; kind of like a remote hacking device.
On the back are jump jets, thrusters, vents (can't have too many vents) and the fold-out Super Long Range Array. The various aerials are either transmitters of interference generators.
On the left, shoulder and arm are medium and short range directional surveillance arrays and a plasma torch for cutting.
Unfolded, the Super-Long-Range Array allows interplanetary transmission/reception without a local relay or base.
Fully detailed cockpit. The control arms are 6 pieces each including the foot pedals.
It took just over two months to build, then a couple of weeks worth of minor changes and it's been worth it.

I wonder how so much weight can ever hold together in upright position :D How did you made its joints?
Thanks Michael. They're click-joints from models like the Exo-Force mechs and the more recent Galaxy Squad CLS-89 mech. The arms and thighs are pretty much on the limit of what they can hold up so it's a delicate act but worth the effort.
Wow. I'm not the biggest Blacktron II fan (the colors are cool, but I don't the minfigs), but this thing a lethal-looking load of art. "Electron Reorganizer?" you say...where can I get one? Truly, this is a fantastic model.
I wonder how so much weight can ever hold together in upright position :D How did you made its joints? But this fact just add mor value to this wonderful robot. Great part usage, details, overall design looks very BT II -ish. I love how people still add more and more techinque to themes that are so long lost ... I just whished LEGO would revive BT or some more vintage SPace theme ... great work, 5/5 :D

This is really good. Reminds me of the giant Jaegers from Pacific Rim.
