About this creation














The Space Skulls Spider Mecha.

I've made a couple of changes, mostly adding a second pair of legs.






above pictured with the initial space skulls spider mecha (which only had six limbs and therefore was actually an insect not a spider)

Pictured with various space skulls mecha, demon ogre mecha pictured at rear.



Possible changes:

While this is a fairly "functional" Spider Mech, it lacks several attributes of true spiders. For one thing there is no thorax. So my plan is to place a large weapons array at the rear to serve that function.

I like how the legs turned out, but the feet bug me slightly (no pun intended) I'd like to change them somehow but I'm still brainstorming options.

The cockpit is a little bit of an issue for me too. I don't really like designs wit exposed pilots. I may borrow some ideas from the Aegaks models to create a closed in cockpit as the main body with a "stylised" head section up front.

Finally, I'd like to do something more with the pilot. He doesn't look intimidating enough for me, I think some form of armour is in order.

I may even try creating a slightly larger than minifig scale cyborg pilot with a spaceskull head for the purpose, we'll see, the cockpit design would need to be much MUCH bigger if I did that, which might create a design that is too large for those legs.

Quoting Thomas Z. This looks creepy...in a good way! Altough I hate spiders in general, this is a really nice MOC!

this was a learning curve for me. I honestly thought 8 legs would look too crowded, which is why the original only had six. I've also not done many designs using bionicle joints in LDD, so I pretty much had to learn as I built how they would interact and whether there would be problems. I'm going to add in the comments some notes about possible changes I'd like to make.

Nicely done on the new version. Definately looks better. And the collection you've made looks very imposing. ^Blub^
