Planet of the Exo-Apes

I was monkeying around with some Exo-Force parts, and came up with an idea for a new bot, which soon became a vig. 8)

I find these parts interesting, so I also came up with an Exo-Scorpion bot:

Awesome Apes (and awesome alliteration :roll:). Them apes has powerf'l arms, they do. I'll comment on the scorpion when it's public.

I love the vignette (big fan of the original film myself) but the Scorpion is brilliant. Fantastic use of elements that would normally be considered pretty limited in their use ;)

Nice Apes, and nice job! I really like this creation. Original, and you use some of the most un-desirable (at least to me) minifigures, and make them look very desirable!

That's really cool, and really creative! I like that ape-vig, besides those apes the look of it is really cool. The scorpion is also interesting.

Hey Nelson, I love these! I would never have thought to connect the legs like this. They really do look like apes and, of course, the scorpion is awesome too.
