Miss Malicious
My first VOAT - Based on Giovanni Seynhaeve's theme, "Drag Queens," Miss Malicious is a mean, dark red and lime green, monster machine.
About this creation


Across six galaxies, three asteroid belts, and one black hole, there lies a galaxy. A populated galaxy, complete with four biological races. One of these races is a group of biotechnological beings, origin unknown. It is surmised they once held the ability to morph into different shapes, but over the millenia, they "hardened" into the racing forms they now hold.




These sentient creatures were discovered approximately 1,400 years ago. They had already developed a sophisticated culture; albeit single-mindedly focused around the competition of drag racing. Their racing culture instantly attracted galactic attention, becoming the focus of entertainment and betting for entire cultures.




Miss Malicious is a Drag Queen with killer instinct. She ruthlessly pursues her enemies, wielding the weapons of fear and intimidation as effectively as her numerous serrated blades.




My notes: I have been wanting to build a Drag Queen ever since Giovanni Seynhaeve invented them. I never had a solid concept though, which kept me at bay. Recently, however, I came up with the idea of a dragster using the large Bionicle knife-things I'd been storing. I love the dark-red Lego, so those were a natural combination for me. Adding the string and minifig weapons was a thought all along the way. Why did I do it?? I wanted her to look like a hunter. I also liked the idea that she is wearing antiquated cutting tools, as opposed to her futuristic blades.




This creation, like almost all of mine, is extremely fragile. I can't seem to resist going overboard on decorations, eschewing playability and durability. My first practice build included blades that could open and close, but I removed them, since the mechanism was bulky.




Here's a shot meant to show some detail. I had trouble with the scale. A minifig would obviously fit in the seat, but it doesn't feel right. I would have used a smaller steering wheel, but that was the only one I had that fit the Technic shaft.

One note on the steering - the blade on the center of the fuselage fills the space the steering column should take. So, I used rubber bands to move the column about two studs lower. It adds a bit of time delay into the steering, but it still works.




Were you wondering how I made the wheels? I don't have any large wheels, another factor slowing my creation of these beasts, so I had to invent my own. I would describe the process shown here, but, as just noted, it is shown here.

Interesting fact: I only have four flame pieces. Count more than that? Hooray for Photoshop!

Credits: As ever, my wife was a pillar of support. Well, she supports me, but not this creation. She doesn't even like to look at it. She calls it ugly, and says it looks like a bat out of you know where. She loves me so much, you see, that she helps me anyway. Thanks, sweetie.

Necessity is the mother of invention. Well done, and probably the best one I have seen in this theme. Lee.

What a thing of beauty! About the only malicious thing about it is the maliciously mad skills to build it!

Quoting Shannon Ocean I have to get in on this drag queens theme...
Now that would be cool. I'd love to see your take on the theme.

Quoting §hažam ! (Flare) I'm pretty sure that VOATs were supposed to have 2 of those blacktron octagonal type pieces...
Yeah, I was concerned about that too. I read and reread that part of the VOAT Consortium rules. IMHO, that rule applies to Blacktron II creations. It doesn't make sense for Drag Queens, cyborg racers, mysterion, or all of the other VOATs out there.
