The big red robot himself, from the greatest anime known to man: TENGEN TOPPA GURREN LAGANN!!
About this creation
Ah yes, Gurren Lagann, the most explosive, intense action anime out there! Even the most stubborn anime critics will be hooked after a single episode! I recently discovered GL when I was recovering from a surgery I had no too long ago (that was also the reason for my absence). Gurren Lagann may be the most original mech out there and is certainly the coolest.
Gurren Lagann is a mech called a "Ganmen" (or Gunman depending on what side of the earth you live on). It way created by the merging of two other mechs: Gurren and Lagann (simple right?). It's piloted by Simon the Digger and his "bro" Aniki, who is later replaced by a guy named Rossiu, and finally replaced by Simon's nemesis, Viral. Gurren Lagann is powered by Simon's "drill key", a small artifact imbued with "spiral energy". This is the source of Gurren Lagann's awesome power. Gurren Lagann also has the special ability to merge and control any vehicle it attaches to, making it a very lethal weapon.
This model that I built is hopefully the first in a VERY long line of Versions. Due to the fact that I have little to no parts left in my inventory, I will admit, this guy could use A LOT of work. But all in due time. Right now though, I wanted to post it as a sort of preliminary prototype (but trust me, I literally have a LIST of things that need to be updated).
One more note, this is not minifig scale, by no means.
Full body shot. The biggest thing I have to fix are the arms and lower body (legs, feet n' stuff) and maaaaaaybe the torso, it looks a little thin...
Head shot, yes, those are bananas, no I did no modify them. What? I'm not some psychopath that goes around randomly cutting up bananas!!
Another shot of the UNMODDED head. Just look out for improvements next version.
Action pose! Let's fight!!
Look! The glasses come off too!
Another action pose! WHO THE #3!! DO YOU THINK I AM?!?
HYAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! SUPER MEGA LIGHTING EFFECT ACTION POSE PICTUUUUUUUUUUURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay let's face it, it kinda sucks. BUT, that's why it's version one! Version one is ALWAYS supposed to suck (some more than others). So keep an eye out for new updates and stop giving me that "you could have done better!" look!!
Do you have Halo 3 and X-Box Live? I made my Halo 3 emblem the Dai Gurren Dan symbol, and I'm starting a Halo 3 Dai Gurren Dan clan. Even if you don't have Halo 3, I'd like to add you as a friend. My Gamer Tag, like my username and real name is Phong Chang. If you don't have X-Box Live, please try to get it. It's only $50 for a 1 year membership. Trust me, it's worth it, and $50 for a 1 year membership is a very good deal. It also may come with an extra bonus month. If you don't have an X-Box 360, I suggest getting one for a birthday present, asking for one for Christmas, or saving up your money for one. I hope to see you on X-Box Live! ~Ping Phong LOL! Get the joke?!
I've got a normal GL model kit, but I'm gettin a TTGL Revoltech! WOOOT! His galaxy sized Giga-Drill will peirce my ceiling...uh hum...and THE HEAVENS!!!! Are you getting normal GL or TTGL? I'm getting TTGL!
WOOOOT! Check out my most recent MOCs. I'd like you to see my Armored Core Battousai Suralta. Look at comment below. Nice buddy icon too! Mine is Tngen Toppa Gurren Lagann risin from the physical plain of the universe! How epic?!
AAWWEESSOOMMEE! Ore wo dare datto omotte yagaru?! (Who the H311 do you think we are?!) The epicness! Although the proportions are a bit off, and the mech lacks some detail, I can't find it in my heart to give a Gurren Lagann MOC any lower than a 5. It still deserves a 5 anyway. Love the bananas, but the horns should be lopsided. (After 3 viewings of the whole series, I know full well what every detail is. I watched episodes 11, 8, and 27 literally 30X or more!!!! BTW: I'm getting the revoltech TTGL figure., so the LEGO one was demolished. I have normal GL though. Plz comment on my new MOC. PS: Yoko's HOT--Very hot! LOLZ!
