Built for the Mocolympics round one versus Phipson.
Oh yeah, Phipson's homepage is THIS PAGE
Developed originally built as a joy vehicle to hop around in the BunClops was later added the The Army of the Animal (Otherwise known as ATT). Now, why the "Bun" and why the "Clops"? The Bun is because the top half of the Mech is built to look like a cute little bunny (for the lady costumers (who don't like smashing things)). This Mech's orginal purpose was also transportation, and the way it transports things is by hopoping. Literally. The BunClops is not intended for small children, people with heart problems, or pregnant woman. The BunClops is especially not advised for pregnant children with heart problems. The "Clops" is because, instead of the triditional two legs, this Mech only has one giant leg, for catapualting itself through the air.
Ready for a 360 view? Let's do it!
Ear, for those of you who are wondering.
The back with the whole gun set-up. This was only after it was converted to military use.
The face lowers to show the driver.
The BunClops with the other ATT vehicle, the Pelican.
Until next time, (Insert lego related catch phrase here)
If I was a soldier up against your mech I would want to run up to it and hug it. I guess that is when it decides it wants to kill me.
I like it

The more I look at this the funnier it is. I really like the concept. As a bunny rabbit though, I guess I can see it. Bunny wouldn't be my first guess. It seems less like a chubby bunny and more like hello kitty. ...also, both great names for mechs.
Congratulations and a round VERY well played to Zeph. I really thought you had me just on originallity alone. It was a close match. Now then, go get to work on that hamster mech to match the rest of 'em. Keep it blocky ~ Chris.
Now, I'd have REALLY been impressed if it had been mostly pink, and used a "thumper foot" or something like that to stomp the living cr*p out of it's victims. Nevertheless, really clever idea (check out Shannon Young's Woundwart Mech some time), and a great job on the facial features! Still, my vote's going to Phippy on this one. His walker's a bit more boilerplate in design, but he's got ya on construction and presentation (the sideways pics were unfortunately a bit of a factor with your presentation). Nevertheless, hold your head high...it was a good idea and good execution.
The top half is fantastic, I love it. The bottom could use some work, but the mech is a great overall. Unfortunately, as close as it is, I going to give my vote to Phipson. Don't let my decision get you down, this is an amazing mech! [Even if I got a neck cramp :)]
Well, you get good marks for originality and silly. I like silly, but we'll see what the judges think. You should down load some free software like eyebrowse, and use it to rotate your pictures. If you use windows xp you can rotate them in the picture viewer preview. Unless you wanted to have them sideways. I like the top part of the bun but the legs are kind of weak. Good luck. Glad I'm not judging. see ya. garth
