The Sea Serpent gets out of the sea, onto the streets, and into the Sky.
About this creation
One of my earliest creations before I discovered MOCpages. Since my 9th Birthday, the 6057-1: Sea Serpent has been my most valuable set and I've had it for years. Then one day, with my growing collection, I decided the thing needed an upgrade. It was about time the Sea Serpent got out of the sea, on the streets, and into the Sky.
1) The Strike Serpent in its Walker Mode. This mode allows it for easy, animal-like movement on land during battle. The main features of the ship are as follows. The Front section includes headlights for night missions, laser rifles on each side, the Shield unit which activated (by tilting it up) surrounds the entire ship in a force field, the Piercing Lance which attacks enemies for a full frontal physical stab, and the signature Serpent Storm which fires a Piercing thunderbolt at enemies ahead. The middle section consists of the main deck, control center and engines. Since the ship can't fire sideways, the rest of the crew fires their own weapons while the captain operates and checks all of the ship's functions and status. The Rear section contains the turret which is controlled by the Look-out member, and attacks enemies from behind by firing a sledgehammer. The turret also has searchlights, that also shoots lasers, because it needs lasers.
2) The same mode without the turret. The turret detaches from the ship and is assigned for stealth and scouting missions. It also helps the ship in ground battles when outnumbered, and can ram enemies/doors with the hammer instead of firing it.
3) The Strike Serpent in its Sky/Surface mode, with the Shield unit and flight engines activated. The legs are raised to lower the ship and the ship's wheels, and serve as the wings. The wheels allow faster movement but less maneuvering ability than walker mode. Generally used for quicker escapes, chases and easier take-offs. When the engines are tilted down, this allows the ship to hover high from the ground in a quicker, less efficient take-off and keep its position while in the air.
Despite its age and the wear and tear, the ship has been an efficient fighter in all environments, able to take a few hits and hold extra upgrades. As for the sail...they don't need it but they like it there anyway for its legacy.
