Space Skulls Hover Locomotive
Ok, this creation is WAY outside my comfort zone: I have no experience in building trains or locomotives and I usually don't build large things. I really thought the Space Skulls needed a ground vehicle, something big, mean, grinding thing to strike fear in the galaxy. And then I remembered a painting by the Scotish artist Rodney Matthews called "Heavy Metal Hero" which inspired me to build a locomotive. The hovering idea came from Space Pirate, thanks alot!
About this creation

Designed and constructed for one sole purpose: smashn'grind.


The locomotive has got hovering capabilities as well as rolling over the ground depending of the conditions.






Armament: twin-mounted railguns. Of course.


This is my first MOC with integrated Bionicle parts. Thank you Fassio...



Pictures showing how the interior with engines deploys to function as a separate craft.











Thanks for watching...

That's right, buying the Space Skulls set designed by Mr Sandlin inspired me alot.

Actually, Flare, Mark Sandlin invented them. Google Fleebnork and you'll see what I mean. On the creation itself, this is totally epic.

Superb stuff Marcus. Really heavy-duty and menacing, love the parts use (you got that Skrall helmet in!) and the little engine/ flyer unit reminds me of an old Star Wars Hoth tank toy I had as a kid, which makes me love it more. Great MOC.

WOW man! I LOVE this! From the menacing skull to the perfectly in-theme ribs on the sides, to... everything else. The only thing I was left wanting, is a set of retracting wheels, doubling as hover thrusters, like Doc Brown's locomotive in Back to the Future pt III. That would have been epic :) All the same, again, WOW!

Sorry I didn't comment earlier, but this thing is HUGE!!! The Troll Wheels are perfect, even power miners wheels would work. I have my Space Skulls stuff ready to photograph. They turned out VERY well. Thanks so much! I built a Bomber and an unarmed Catskull getaway escort.

Bravo. You've struck the perfect balance of when to hide and when to expose studs on the skull. You're definitely a builder to watch.

O yeah! If this beast isn´t enough for Space Skulls, nothing will! You have outdone yourself - again, brother. It came out beyond good! Like all your creations, this has so many well-thought details. Not to mention the skull, witch is insane good,the pistons are a very nice touch and the spears..o my. How many Star Justice- rednecks will fit on those!? Very well done. Yeah, and the railgun is my favourite.. Take care and I hope your cold gets better soon! /J

O.M.G. If that was a plastic toy it would just fly off the shelves. What a total, gothic, train beast! No point trying to pick out features cos this is one of the darn coolest MOC's i've ever seen. 10/5-MOTD... -P

Very nice textures, great choice of wheels and the little ship is a nice feature (his engines looks very cool when integrated to the train, too) - This is an excellent concept and a fantastic build, it's way more original than any of my MOCs, and features one of your coolest "skull" - Epic win !!!
