Samus' Gunship
Samus' ship from Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Samus can remote-control the ship to attackk specific targets, and it houses a save station, an ammunition arsenal, and a medical bay.
About this creation
When in flight, the ship looks like this:



But when landing, the side "wings" spread apart at the front, the "legs" lower, and the engines face downward, like this:



Look closely, and you can see the elevator from which Samus descends when exiting the ship:



A better view of the pivoting engines. Pulling this red knob lowers the elevator and spreads the wings. Unfortunately, the mechanism which accomplishes this goes all the way into the cockpit so it can't house a minifigure. (I don't have the parts to make a decent Samus anyway):

Very impressive! Joke Ideas - Velcro - what a ripoff! Coffee - not my cup of tea. So I saw a man hanging aroud Mount Everest, acting suspiciously. I said 'What have you been up to?' He said 'About twenty nine thousand feet.' My mate said to me, he said 'I'm fictional.' I said 'Get real!' I never make jokes about Spain. No way Josť. I made a stew of rugby balls. It was scrummy. It's amazing how many poems have been writen by a nun. (Oh, it's anon isn't it...?) (By the way, these jokes are not mine) So a man has a globe for a head. I say ' Talk about having the world on your shoulders!' What vegetable watches race? A specpotato. (Apart from those ones)

Why did you scrap it? I could've let you rent my custom samus minifigure to take pictures of it with the ship.

Nicely done! It's too bad you can't house a minifig. or this would be even cooler! Since you said in your little biogrophy of yourself I will recommend a creation for you.Ummmmm... how 'bout a nice boss from legend of Zelda or anything from Zelda would please me. With those magical lego making hands I think anything could turn out nice.

This is extremely good. You've recreated the shape and colors extremely well. My only issue is the amount of studs showing, but I know that simply can't be helped sometimes.

This is the best Metroid gunship that I've seen. Excellent work on the elevator and wing mechanism.

Nice job, it looks great! I made a similar ship a while back, but it doesn't use any gears or anything. It's on my Samus MOC page, feel free to check it out. Anyway, well done.
