'Iron Gibbon' Prosthetic Suit
A humongously tiny mecha for wounded monkeys.
About this creation
A prosthetic suit for crippled monkey soldiers. It was commonplace to outfit higher class wounded with these suits until high command realized that most of the monkeys they saved weren't worth it, and that they could save a bunch of money by selling the pricks to a deli down the street. This was later protested by some rights groups until they realized just who it was they were fighting to protect. These mech suits are still occasionally given out, but now it is reserved for those who, "Are so hardcore awesome they warp the space time continuum around them and use it to smash their opponents and rule the stars. Or if you can manage to bring us something awesome". No one has ever succeeded in meeting the first requirement, but the Military High Council has received quite a bit of awesome stuff over the years.

When fully assembled the prosthetic suit towers over the average
This is the first thing I've built in a long while.

However, it's arms are almost constantly spread in a confrontational manner. This has led to many a pilot shouting phrases like 'Come at me, Bro!' or 'Bring it!'
About a month or so.

It has often been remarked that the suits resemble suits from the movie Avatar, but then the pilots remark that these are real and can pull your arms off.
Not bad for a comeback MOC, eh?

The rear of the suit contains a single power rod that provides power to the whole suit. If bounced or filled with fake cheese it will explode and/or create a fake cheese monster that will attempt to conquer the world
Also, Dr. Happy Baboon asked for some Monkey stuff.

Another side view
I aim to please, afterall.

Bobo lost his limbs in 'The War' (We're not sure which one, he doesn't know its name), and was lucky enough to qualify for an advanced prosthetic suit (Read: Had buckets of money and rank). Now he can crush his enemies with fists of steel. However, he's utterly incompetent at every other job now.
So, any other requests?

The arm, used for crushing skulls, crushing limbs, crushing foliage, crushing walls, crushing armor, crushing weapons, or accidentally crushing delicate objects.
If it's within my skills I may give it a try.

The legs, used for stomping. Sorry, the list gag only works once.
So ask away people of the interwebs!

Do You feel lucky, Punk?
The answer is no, he does not. He's being lifted off the ground by a mech suit. That is typically what we call 'Unlucky'.
I need some inspiration, and this might do it.

A much awesomer rear view. Awesomer is now a word. Tell your English teacher to get over
Man, I'm almost out of pics.

And this is yet another view of the front of the mech, which is always the most important part.
Sayonara! ... Did I spell that right?

Well, I was jokingly asked in my 'Puppet Master' when there would be some Monkey stuff. Now, far be it for me to pick a side (/sarcasm/), so I decided to throw in a little bit of balance. That and I started building and it worked. So... Yeah. That's pretty much it. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed the mech! Be sure to tell me you enjoyed it in the comments. Multiple times, if necessary.

"Now he can crush his enemies with fists of steel. However, he's utterly incompetent at every other job now." Just wondering, doesn't that aply to monkeys and their contraptions in general? Very nice build, like it very much!
