The Yellow Devil (and a small space fighter)

Rob Kraataclaw is a legend in the Interstellar Snuff Circuit. Rob was once a human, but when he tried to enhance himself with super-strength implants he went insane. Believing himself to be part of an ancient tribe that never even existed - the Kraataclaws - he cut off his left arm and replaced it with a giant, well, claw. Now all he wants to do is to eradicate all Pure Humans(TM).

The Yellow Devil is part of the ISC, as Rob believes the prize money will help him reach his goal. The contestants are dropped down on a planet and given a physical point on the planet. Goal: get there as fast as possible, on land. Other rules unexistant.

For some mysterious reason the space ninjas has taken an interest in Rob. Could be that he is flaunting a mutilated space ninja corpse on his wagon of doom.

And then there is a small generic space fighter:

Space Ninja corpse? Not the cybernetic kind that have Gliders I hope ;)

Amazing shape & excellent detail, so studdless too! I am not a fan of the colour scheme, but the bley/grey mix gives the machinery a very realistic look.

I actually just made a space buggy, myself - however it looks nothing like this ;) Great work!

Very, very cool, Linus. The MOC is a get stand-alone, but the back story makes it even better.

I see you took my chain suggestion, and the knives are a great addition. Good work!

I just saw this last night on brickshelf and thought, "huh, what a cool piece of 'sculpture'..." The shape is very cool and the whole MOC has a very clean feeling to it. Nicw work here.

Fantastic. Simply fantastic. The shape is great, the colors are great, the greeblie details are great, Rob Kraataclaw is great, and the backstory is great. This does look extremely fast. What is that big grey area? Engine?

Edit: Oh yeah, and the anglerfish is great as well. I really like the way the cockpit opens.

I like the curves, and the overall shape of the design, which alone makes it an interesting MOC.

One of the first things I noticed with it though was the use of smaller pieces, like the chrome-silver knives and the grey goblets, all adding detail to an impressive sculpture.

I like muchly. :wink:

Thanks everyone. I'm glad it was received this well - now that I think about it, it is actually the first MOC i post here!

smcginnis: The big gray area is supposed to be an engine. Do I get that across, or is it to "out there"?

It definitely looks like an engine. I just wasn't sure because of its relationship to the wheels.

I love anything with a reduced stud count. Both of these creations definitely fit that criteria, so based on that fact they are already great. Now the added fact that they are also both very impressive in their own right, make them stupendously fabulous.
