The Junkyard Dragon!! This fire breathing, machine gun wielding, rocket launching robot is a terrifying sight to see while you're looking for scraps of metal or other things in the local junkyard.
About this creation
This is the first lego creation I've built in over a year. It is also the first Mech I've ever made that wasnt out of Technic, because Technic is so much easier. After a couple weeks of sorting almost all of my legos by color I got bored and decided to build something. The funny thing is, is that I built a mech made out of random colors and pieces. What a waste of time sorting by color...
This creature is just a little something I've put together with random pieces. There is no color scheme, although it would look better if it had one, but as its name so plainly describes, this is a Junkyard Dragon.
>MOTTO< This creature is definitely meaner then a junkyard dog.
>BIO< This Dragon is built around an AI core that some stupid scientist misplaced in a box labled "Garbage". So the AI could survive it built a shell around itself which, as you can see, is made out of pieces of scrap metal and other electical stuff. It later evolved into a mechanical dragonoid thingy giving itself some weapons to defend itself if needed.
The Junkyard Dragon! In its natural environment... my room...
This fearsome beast crawls at a whopping... let me get a ruler first...
Almost 6 inches!!!! (from audience "ooooo ahhhh")
Its fiery breathe is something you dont want to get hit by. The Junkyard Dragon feels the same way because for some reason its always shooting flames?
Oh its just a boring old tail gun. Nothing secretive or special going on here
The other side!!
This would be... the back left foot? yeah, yup, yes it the back left
The back right foot with all its armor!
The front right foot. As you can barely see, there is a pair of knuckle guns on its.. well, knuckles. You cant see it but there is another weapon on the arm
The front left leg. Nothing cool at all about this leg. Nope nothing at all.
----Story of the Knight----
This is the Brave Knight. Which I dont really understand. Its a knight, fighting a giant robotic dragon... hmmm
Oh I see now. Its just some weird guy dressed as a medieval Knight going to fight the evil dragon and become.. a man? well whatev.. RAAAAAAAAWWWWWRRRRRRR!!!(imagine the T-Rex from Jurassic Park rawring)
"Uh oh, it looks like its doing something strange?" Said the "Brave Knight" who is really just some guy dressed up like a knight.
"Yup I knew it... oh crap" Said the weirdo, after he soiled himself... poor guy
Dun Dun DUUUUUN!
As you all stand in amazement and feel worried for the knight why dont you check out some detail pictures of this FEARSOME BEAST!
Standing at about ten and a half inches tall! or 10 1/2 unless your bad at fractions like I am then it would be 10.5.. sorry. And weighing at about five pounds!!! (next picture)
Is the awesome and very scary looking.. JUNKYARD DRAGON!!
While its fiery breathe is being breathed you can see its sharp teeth through the "fire and the flames" get it?
Ah the torso... just the hardest part of the moc to build. There are three joint pieces inside the torso. Just like the joints on the arms and legs. The bottom.. 2/3 joint? lets it move backwards and forwards a little bit. The top 3/3 part lets it move side to side and rotate just a bit. Its quite genius if I do say so myself. Not to mention painful to build
Oh yes, that boring arm that does absolutely nothing
This arm has a pair of knuckle guns, good for short range attack. On the side of the arm is a laser targeted.. laser gun? I am just so confused about describing all this stuff...
You can barely see it because its so small and camouflaged, but its there I promise. hehe. And by all that I mean the rocket thats sitting there on the foot.
Action shot! woopow!
That handy flat light green 1x4 piece connected to the two dark green 1x2 pieces with stud in the middle keeps the top half from moving side to side and rotating. Its pretty handy for when its standing
I dont really like this picture...
The AI brain thingy. The reason this horrible monster exists.
BAM!!! You werent expecting this were ya? Yeah its an interchangeable tail/hand gun. Pretty neat huh?
This quad barreled bullet shooting gun has four, count em, four laser targeting assistance things. There are four I promise, you just cant see the fourth one. This weapon is good for short range and long range attacks
----Story of the Knight continued...----
Dun Dun DUUUUN!!
"Oh no the dragon has me in its evil grip!" Yelled the lame knight. To bad the dragons fire cant reach the knight...
Oh no what will the "Brave Knight" do?
He is bound for certain death...
Unless he thinks of something quickly before he is crushed, or burned, or shot, or exploded to death!
And with a grin on his face...
Oh shoot! You must have blinked. I am soooo sorry!
"This marks the end of this ferocious creatures reign over the junkyard lands of Harrisonville. From henceforth and until I die, I claim this land as my own and promise to rebuild this kingdom to its former glory!" -A noble speech given by a almost as equally noble knight at the deactivation ceremony of the Junkyard Dragon.
That fourth wall commentary thing I see on almost every moc I look at:
I Hope you enjoyed this truly special moc! It was my first build in over a year and Im really proud of myself for building my first mecha made out of regular Lego pieces and not Technic. It was all free built, no pre made chunks of Lego or pre made minifigs. That knight minifig was thrown together out of my pieces from my minifig box. I still have a bunch of sorting to do. Last night I pulled the Galactic Enforcer box out from under my bed and dumped out over 1000 legos! That took a while to sort... and I found a Lego ship I had previously thought to be trashed. Which was awesome.
