Volatile drone precursor to Sepia. Prone to what is apparently robotic schizophrenia. Dangerous, but never for very long.
About this creation
The main photo again - but more importantly, SEVEN YEARS BAAAABYYYYYYYYYYYYY! It's crazy how fast time goes by. I still feel like a new member of the community, especially on Flickr with some of the giants in our midst.
I'll get back to sentimental reflections in the next couple of photos. The main inspiration for this guy was when I found that the antenna and the new clip pieces had a surprisingly strong connection that I had never seen before, which reminded me of a lot of Dead Frog inc's creations on Flickr (he's amazing). I built the rest of the arms, then the torso, and it kinda just came together on its own. I'm really, really happy with how he turned out, and is a bit of a landmark for me, since it's the first mech I've been completely happy with.
I only made the damaged right arm because I couldn't find my other black antenna (I should have another one), but I'm glad I did because it looks pretty nice contrasting with the monotony of the rest of the MOC.
The base also lights up, but not very well. I took out the lights and wires for photos. He's surprisingly stable and poseable, although there is a very fine line between which physics-defying poses hold and which ones give up defying physics and leave him in a million pieces on my floor.
So yeah. Seven freaking years. I love the positive atmosphere and humility and constant developmental mindset everybody has here, and I hope this community retains that forever. You all are the best people on earth.
I'm really excited to start my 8th year on this awesome site and as a part of this awesome community, although it'll be hard for me to be involved the next four years with college 'n' stuff. Thanks for viewing, and don't forget to leave a comment or constructive criticism! - Justin
Echo: Medium-weight assault walker. Mainly used to intimidate and blitz smaller enemy forces. Nicknamed "Bully" by its pilots.
Lovestalker: Light-weight precursor to Sepia technology. Original purpose unknown. Reverse-engineering of inactive or destroyed units has proven very helpful to technological advancement.
Mirage: Heavy-weight siege craft. Breaks from the usual sleek design of Sepia ships in order to have the mass to deal with the recoil of its railgun. Highly effective against enemy armor.
Phantasm: Medium-weight transport. Ineffective in combat. Designed for high-speed, high-risk missions where less nimble options are too vulnerable.
Shimmer: Light-weight recon speeder. Ineffective in combat.
