This little guy is one of my oldest MOCs. So I decided to upload him here.
About this creation
I built Turbot (originally "Turbo-Bot", but I think "Turbot" sounds better...) something like nine or ten years ago, shortly before the first wave of Bionicle was released.
His design was inspired by Turbo Man, one of the Robot masters from Mega Man 7 (SNES), and originally, he could transform by placing his smokestacks on his hips and moving his head and arms upward. However, I put larger pieces at his feet for a more stable stand some time ago. He also hadn't his weapons back then.
Basically, there isn't much special about Turbot, except his age and the fact that since his creation I never had disassembled him (probably because I didn't need any of his parts). In other words, he survived all my eras of MOCing. He even made it into my Bionicle story back then.
Dynamic action pose. He looks kinda like some sort of crazy space pirate, don't you agree?
His rifle. Like the sword, he hadn't that from the beginning. I actually built the first rifles of this type for those LEGO TECHNIC figures, which I armored in a Space Marine-esque style back then.
If you wanna use the rifle for your own MOCs, feel free to do so, but it would be nice if you give me credit. ^^
"You feelin' lucky, punk?"
And that's it. Feel free to tell me what you think of this guy (and his weird colour scheme).
I didn't read that part about Mega Man 7 earlier and now I see the resemblance. MM7 is my favorite of the classics and one of my all-time favorite mega man characters appears in that game, The amazing... BASS! That is one cool robot who has a really cool robot dog as well. I love playing as him in the multiplayer mode in MM7.
