Lightning-fast, long range, enemy-shreddin' power.
About this creation
Theme: "To He** with Gattai"
Rapid Sniper is my personal Ganmen. One of my more complex creations, it has several unusual configurations in order to work. One, the entire base is made of ilmbs. This allows me to wrench the entire top of the Ganmen if neccesary. Two, the legs are pretty static for support, they are unable to bend, but they can swivel some. Third, the inner body is hollow, so a minifigure can be put inside. Fourth, the mouth can actually open! How's that Yuri? Mine actually has a mouth!
Rapid Sniper is a long-range assault Ganmen built from the remains of destroyed Ganmen. This is the reason for the somewhat junkish appearance. And in some areas of it, Rapid Sniper is essentially held together with quick welds, luck, and duct tape, lots and lots of duck tape. The main weapon is the quad-barreled, rapid-fire sniper rifle, hence the name. The 60,000 rounds-a-second firing speed generates some wicked exhaust heat, so the entire Ganmen is coated in an lightweight metal that is capable of withstanding heat of over 10,000 degrees. The speed also creates a vicious kicback, so the arm has built in shock absorbers (the actual model doesn't actually have any though) to compensate. This speed, combined with the pilot's pinpoint aim (computer-assisted), is capable of leveling entire areas in a matter of seconds. The claw is big and intimidating, and quite capable of ripping apart any Ganmen stupid enough to come close.
The Ganmen was built during the Man-Beastman Wars, but did not play an active role, being built near the end of the war. First time in combat, the battle of Teppelin. It was one of the many Ganmen assisting Team Dai-Gurren. Rapid Sniper itself racked up many kills. However, during the battle, Rapid Sniper was hit in a vital area and proceeded to self-destruct, annhilating the pilot and 8 nearby Ganmen in a massive explosion. The one on display here is a functioning reconstruction of the mecha.
Inspiration: Gember (and the 16-faced Ganmen's main body, but I couldn't find any images of it)
Just showin' off the gun. 4 barrels, a range of over 40 miles, and 60,000 rounds a second. The exhaust heat has roasted birds flying 2 miles up.
The eyes (orange) and mouth. Plus a few of the anti-personnal and anti-aircraft guns.
The claw. Yup, those are guns. System guns at that.
A (severely) modified version of Team Dai-Gurren's emblem.
IT'S ME! (Combat Suit outfit)
As I said, the entire top can be ripped open if needed.
Why did I take a picture of this?
You're in my sights, Barron.
Afraid your time has run out Barron.
