No folks, that's no typo. In short, I made a rescue boat for the Monkeys. No, there aren't any frogs in this creation. Yes, they considered it high treason.
About this creation
This started out as a build for the Lego Military Group's latest challenge (Rescue), but I'm no longer sure it fits. It looks too civilian. Yes, I realize there's a gaping hole in my logic, as it IS armed with a giant spear. However, these are the Stoopid Monkeys we're talking about here. Everything is ridiculous in one way or another.
The Reskewer entered Monkey Coast Guard service before the Frog Wars began. It was employed at resorts, swimming pools, ponds, lakes, abnormally large puddles, and came standard with a 32 oz beverage. In short, it was the mainstay of the Search and Rescue fleet. It was also responsible for more deaths than Velociraptors, Ninjas, and Heart Disease combined in the opening month. These deaths dropped off in the third quarter as instruction manuals (With pictures) were provided. Most of these... Helpful... machines were scappe to make weaponry to support the Monkey Cause during the Frog Wars, however, and under 37 are still in active duty. All of them are employed by the Amity Island Police Department to help fend off attacks by abnormally large Sharks, of both the Sky and Sea varieties. Bigger boats have been needed in some cases.
It's not much of a build, but it looks complicated. And I find the concept of Monkey Rescue hilarious.
It's been awhile since I made some ridiculously complicated gun-like thingamajig.
I think the harpoon gun turned out well.
This one even has string! Who doesn't love string?
An overhead view: Far safer than anyplace else in the vicinity when one of these contraptions is out and about.
Looking down the barrel of a cannon is a bad idea. Doing the same to this is a worse idea.
The stylish rear shot.
The 'skewer' part of Reskewer. Here we see our monkey friend 'rescuing' a pair of oil workers who fell into the ocean.
That's all folks! Leave me a comment or I'll show up in your local unusually large puddle in one of these things!
Thank you gentleman, it's appreciated!
@Corey: In most cases, it kills then rescues. In some however, the unfortunates have survived long enough to reach the boat. However, in those cases, they typically bled out on the boat. I haven't seen Waterworld though, so a Vig isn't too likely. Maybe in the future, provided I see the movie.
@Shifu: Thank you, it brings no end of ego inflation to know people enjoy my builds. And I believe the phrase your looking for is 'Oook ook! Oook ook ooook!'.
so it's a worse idea because you will feel the pain, or is it just stupid because they WILL shoot you? and i heard one froggy overlord say (via robot slave) that ribberts was a contribution to the cause. i think he's in jail now...
Haha, nice little... Well... I cant decide wether it will rescue or kill or kill then rescue...my brain hurts.... But really this is a cool moc. Looking at it, some few alterations this could make a great craft for a waterworld vig.
Shank you, Shank you all ;).
@Cole: Monkeys have known about basic machinery for ages. They just haven't made the transition to MOCpages too quickly. Same with Frogspace...
@Garth: Well, generally yes. If you happen to be vacationing on certain planets though, this may be the preferable alternative.
@Jibs: And save you he will! That 32oz beverage won't stand a chance! I'm glad you think so though! It was an interesting build. Mostly because it was midnight. Man, everything becomes more interesting after midnight...
