About this creation
Earth. One of the most powerfully fortified, militaristic planets in the galaxy. Surrounded by bio-mechanical ships and star defenses such as the Scourge. Humans are a romantic, yet warlike race, obsessed with power above many other things - yet they are weak, reaching only about one and a half metres in height, and supported only by a hollow network of calcium carbonate rods.
The defences should have destroyed the asteroid before it hit Greece, but for no apparent reason, all of the cyborg machines completely ignored its prescence.
The crater was a mile wide, and had destroyed part of the Athens ring-road. Within the crater, something stirred...
...Three hours later, army forces surrounded the crater. Transport was cut off, airspace restricted. A strange humming emanated from the wreckage. People in Oslo hearing it felt strangely... peaceful...
And then the creature leapt.
Towering over all humans, the 20-foot tall machine got to its feet and surveyed the area. A strange, spherical construction in its face pulsed and glowed with turquoise light, and the strange, sirene humming grew louder...
The army opened fire.
A scream of rage and discord filled the land. Tanks and airships smoked or fell out of the sky, shattering like eggs on a pavement. Humans in the vicinity covered their ears, although many still died of bleeding on the brain. Many bones snapped - many bowels "purged" themselves.
Weapons didn't seem to hurt it much - the blasts and bullets went the other way.
The thing strode into the city, pavement cracking beneath its feet. The screeching subsided. Warmer chords filled the air. Feelings of hapiness started to fill the heads of those who heard it. The chords and noted bacame more and more complex...
For days the thing strode its way across the world's surface... searching for something. Water, seas did not stop it. It simply went underwater - all the while the strange sounds followed it. It's "face" pulsed with life.
Nobody was ever quite sure what it was, or why it was there... Radio signals fluctuated around it. Often, the sounds of human broadcasts echoed in its constant, melodic droning.
Until it discovered a small archeogenis base. Sword drawn, it clambered down into the bowels of the base, and all of the mechs and machines there turned to face the singing thing.
Epsilon then spoke it's first ever word in a human laguage :"Brothers", it said.
-->Hand design. U likie? I was trying to beat Yuri's Ewxo-Force hand design, and in all honesty, mine is a lot more flexible in how it can be used. See that blue flame shooting out of that Toa's hand? Same design principle in there ^^
--Greebles. My favourite building style ^^
--The last pic is a view of some of the stuff coming up - the gree thing you see near gringat's foot is the head of the next Spheroid I'm making. Its name is Gamma.
And to clear up confusion:
The spheroids are a race of bio-mechs created with the smae cells at the Archeogenis mechs, although their creators are unknown. The spheroids are completely sentient, and communicate with each other with a series of harmonic tones and flashing lights.
They were attracted to Earth by the vast amounts of radio signals and mucic shooting off itno space.
Amazing. As soon as I get the chance, I'll try my hand at this :)

Great, I took another look at this, and now I have to build one. I have so many ideas in my head right now, like a carny duck shooting gallery, a space pirate ship, and a skateboard. Well, thanks for the idea, even if I'll probably fail.

All I can say is 'Wow'. Great job on fuseing together the technic with the system.
Quoting Ben ~
First Rate as ussually, Gringat. My only question is; what is that ball? is it lego or some toy ball found at Wal-mart? I MUST KNOW. (so i can make one too |D)
It's Lego ^^. It's from the same set as Technicman.
The NXT robot came with a mata red and mata blue ball as well. I'll be using those for Spheroids as well.
Although if you want to make one, any ball will do.
