This is my entry to the Battle Bug contest! Well, I didn't want to make just a robotic bug and was a little inspired by Moodswim's speeder bike. So I made a transforming Battle bug! I hope you like it!
About this creation
Battle Bug "The Sting":
-This Battle bug used in the desert wars could transform into a big anti vehicle cannon. It was a combination of spider and wasp and pretty maneuverable, which was required to change its position very fast
First the bug mode:
The cockpit folded down
Now the cannon mode:
Change the wings' shape.
Turn the whole bug around, flip the cockpit up, fold the legs down and open the rear
the wings work as a frame now
The rubberbands make the cockpit flip around pretty easily (don't ask me why he's still sitting like this)
I hope you like this one
COMMENT and RATE!
This new and unused Lego piece was ordered straight from PaB...R.I.P
Ya, its a bummer cause those pieces are so useful for mechs but brake so easily. Anyway, about your creation... I don't think I know a word in the English language to describe it so I'll just say :5/5 (cause that's what I gave you- duh).
This thing is amazing! =D You will definetly win our contest, maybe even the flickr one too, if you were on flickr! =D Nice job dude! Would you mind checking this out: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/183185

wow this is absolutely amazing i love the way you made it able to transform, great job!
Oops, I thought I commented on this before! Anyways, really great Idea! You are a great builder. I wanna learn eventually how to make stuff transform but make both modes look good like you and Moodswim do. Can you please post a link to the contest/group?
Wow, it looks great enough, but the playability factor is what gets me! As far as PaB goes, you should tell them that you recieved a defective part. They should send you a new one, no questions asked (worked for me); and if they don't like doing that, they should consider actually making them properly.
