Special for Easter, The Skunk Works is proud to introduce the LM-4807 rabbit mech. Commonly known as "Woundwort," or "The General," the LM-4807 comes equipped with tear gas, pepper spray, and flamethrower as the standard three-weapon array (other options available). Remotely operated, or fully automatic with settings for up to twenty different operating parameters to suit any conceivable need. Perfect for crowd control, home defense, or just scaring the neighbor's dog. Supplies are limited, order yours today!
General Woundwort is a character in the book Watership Down. If you've never read it, for Frith's sake, step away from the computer, head for the nearest library or book store, and pick up a copy.
I started out using the ball joints from this year's Exo-Force sets, but they didn't have the friction to support any kind of weight and he kept collapsing. So I switched to the clicky joints Exo-Force was using last year.
I am not a talented mech builder. All I asked of Woundwort here was that he be recognizable as a rabbit, and be somewhat poseable.
I like the three-nozzle gun, though.
"Give me all your chocolate bunnies and colored eggs!"
Who could say no to a face like that?
Awww, look at his cute little tail!

Ah, the heavy flannel shirt. Traditional garb of the native Pacific Northwesterner from October through May.
This is actually from the little known sequel, where bunnies have evolved technologically advanced superpowers and now go stomping about, seeking revenge on Hombas, Pfeffas, Lendris, and other Elil! (Yes...that's a joke, for those of you who've not read the book...now go read the book...don't watch the movie...read the BOOK!)
An unintentional side effect of the bunny design is that the opposing troops wouldn't take seriously an order to fire all available batteries at the advancing "giant rabbits," until it is too late. Seriously though, this is a really good Moc. It is pretty much everything that it should be and more. If possible, perhaps a version II could use a studless approach to the upper body and feet. Other than that really, its just about perfect. Keep up the good work.
