Mini Rammer is the oldest MOC I have not scraped, well the original is, the remake isnít The remake is a vary small Starfighter, the original was designed to be a battle bot, battle bots are explained in the next paragraph. The remake was designed to fit in one of my other MOCs: Ultimate Rammer:
The history of the Rammers:
In order to know why I named the ships Rammers you need to know of a game I made in 4th grade. I invented this game called battle bots where players would build a LEGO creation and than use it to try and destroy your opponents LEGO creation, (like the TV show robot wars), the loser was whoever had less than 5 parts still connected. At first we played it on a table, we took turns pushing our MOC at the other persons MOC and try and knock them off the table, I made Mini Rammer for this, a bigger MOC would hit the ground harder. Later we played on the floor and just held the back of our MOCs and than Rammed them into each other, I built the first Ultimate Rammer for this, it looked way different though (sorry I donít have a pic of it), a big MOC had more parts too lose. Later, when I started building space ships the names just sort of stuck.
The original :
Like I said before Mini Rammer was designed to be a battle bot, but not only was it the first battle ever made (at least in my version of the game, other kids my have done something similar before). I originally built it in 4th grade when I invented Battle Bots, I built it at an afterschool day care so I wasnít allowed to keep it. Although because of how many times it got blown up I memorized the designed and made a perfect replica several years latter at my house. The front rammer was originally made of a part that was already broken so I had to break a LEGO piece to make it at my house, but I have never found a use for that part any way so I donít miss it.
Some of the parts on the wings could be moved onto the blue part on the front to make two axes.
After I built Ultimate Rammer, or I guess made the 2 or 3 remake of it, I used its rear hanger to house the original Mini rammer, this was fine for a wile but after a few years I realized that the original MOC didnít have all the wepons, I said it had and it couldnít fit a Minifig. So I rebuilt the replica of the original into a new Mini Rammer that could hold a Minifigure and had other authentic details, a later remade the original again.
Armament: Forward firing: 4 low powered repeater lasers, 2 mid powered lasers, and two rocket launchers.
I am pretty happy with how the remake came out, it doesnít look that great, but it was really hard to build a ship that small. But if you have a Battle Bot match between the new and old, the old will win no contest.
