The Manipulator - Bio Cup 2014 Round 4
Mech designed for grabbing/manipulating objects. Transforms into a vic viper
About this creation
For Round 4 of the Bio Cup 2014.
My opponent is Mohamed Marei.

Most of the time when people think of transformers and mechs, they think of war machines. Here I decided to go against the common idea and made a more utilitarian mech.

The Manipulator ended up being the most complicated bio moc I've ever made, especially the torso which has tons of panels and hinges. It's also one of the biggest, at about 50 studs (15-16 inches) tall.

Vic Viper mode:

Vic Viper (Main)

The transformation isn't too complex - I wanted to focus on looks rather than making a gappy/sloppy transformer. The arms fold in half to create the rear wings, the legs rotate and the feet bend to create the front fins, and the spike on top rotates to become the tailfin

Vic Viper (2)

Pilot (Main)

The pilot is pretty small but I really like how he turned out; I tried to fit in as much detail as possible.

Pilot (2)


Thanks for viewing!

As a mech it looks great, but as a Vic Viper it doesn't. I actually like the fact that it has no V-shaped torso - it's clearly not that style of mech. Designed to be robust, not necessarily pretty. And it works great like that. Plus, greebles galore!

Halhi, I'm really really sorry I have to tell you this... I mean it's just sad that I'm gonna talk to you this way, but there's just no getting around it... YOU'RE A GREAT BUILDER!!! ;-) seriously you're one of my most favorite builder on this site!

An excellent use of parts. The Total shape have you very well managed , exactly my thing. Everything looks very technical.

Quoting David FNJ Wow! Fantastic work Halhi! The toughness on this mech is awesome. I think it's because the pilot is small but still fully detailed.
Thanks FNJ!

Quoting Sean /EMMSixteenA4 Well done, Halhi. You don't need anyone else to tell you the pilot is great, so I'll just tell you jolly good work on the mech. It's great. The upper arms are easily my favorite part.
Thanks Sean! The upper arms are actually one of my least favorite parts aesthetically (I had to focus on the transformation function of them folding in half); my favorite part might be the lower legs

Quoting Ben Stansfield Great mech, but I have to say I prefer the driver. He's just so cool!
Thanks Ben!
Quoting Nate B. That is amazing! I would love to have that mecha! It looks really detailed, and really big.
Thanks, and yeah it is pretty big

Quoting Tirrell Brown Overall very impressed with both the mech and driver. I know you said you wanted to concentrate more on the mech, but that transformation still seems lacking for a builder with your skill set. GL!
Quoting [ Chro ] I've got to agree with Deus. While your entry's humanoid form is much more impressive than Mo's, the transformation is really weak. Good luck.
I've never really liked functions - I always prefer just making it look as good as possible, at least in one form. Thanks anyway

Thanks Mariner!
Quoting Mark McPeek I'm not a Bio builder or fan, but this is impressive. Fantastic work, Halhi!
Thanks!
Quoting El Barto ! Nicely done! The pilot turned out great!
I spent under an hour on the pilot and almost 2 weeks on the mech and everyone likes the pilot more :P Thanks

Quoting Tim C I think I like the little guy more than I like the mech, which is not to say that I don't like the mech. I have a love for greebles and this mech is absolutely covered in them. I think you could stand to give the legs a little more length and add a little bit of a V-shape to the body, but other than that, pretty impressive build. Really nice work.
Thanks Tim! Yeah, I'm not completely satisfied with some parts of the mech but I was rushing to get it finished before the deadline (plus the structure is really complex/flimsy so it's hard to change anything without the entire torso coming apart...which happened a lot of times...

Quoting Thomas of Tortuga Torso shaping is awesome, as are the arms. Very nice job.
Thanks! The arms were originally my least favorite part (when I was designing them I was mainly concerned with their transformation and not their looks) but I'm starting to like them a lot more

Thanks, and yeah it did. I spent at least an hour or so today just trying to rebuild a section that kept falling apart

Quoting Asad . Whoa. Jaw-dropping, stunning, amazing, fabulous, lovely, beautiful, stupendous! The little blue guy is the best though. :P
Yeah, I agree :P I have another pilot that I liked even better (some sort of black/dark green/red mutated creature that was going to be for a vehicle with a similar color scheme) but that vehicle wasn't turning out well so I scrapped it.

Quoting Deus "Big W." Otiosus Hmmm... Vic-viper? Looks more like a robot lying on its back.
I guess it kinda depends on the angle and how you look at it. But yeah, I decided to focus on the mech.
