ARU - Base
The UGM-7's bigger brother.
About this creation

The ARU (Automated Reinforcement Unit) takes the concept of the UGM-7 (credit to BiO for the design) and . . . bigger-ifies it. On with ze show.



Breakdown, as you can see while it retains a few areas of the UGM-7, it is substantially larger, with various unique areas.



As with the UGM-7, the ARU is very flexible, however to a lesser degree due to its bulk.



The head, a much revised version, with the ability to look up and down as well as left and right.



Comparison shot.

Hope ya enjoyed! Remember, credit for the original design comes from BiO's UGM-7.

Hmm, nice work Jak, I'm really digging the chunky armor, though I almost would have preferred that you had waited until I had finished the UGM-7 series before you posted this. Still, nice work. EDIT: I just looked in the LDD file, and I'm sorry to say this, and no offense, but it seems really unpolished. There are a few red bits that didn't get recolored, the joint system around the head has a few bricks at odd angles, and many of the joints can't move to the extremes that they would otherwise be able to. Again, I'm really sorry to have to say this.

no, I meant horns on the front of the head, like a samurai. :P (man, that Mech of yours looks cool...)

Okay, I have now tried posting comments twice here, once on the EM convo, but still to no avail. I don't know what's going on, but hopefully you can see what I wrote soon. EDIT: FINALLY got it up in the EM convo, please go check it out.

Very nicely done. I like the head, unusual as it may be. The armor is also well done. ^Blub^

(in reply to Richie's previous comment) it'll be interesting to see how Thomas Z and Winter Nis will pull off the skirts on theirs. :P although horns on a mini-Mech might actually look kinda cool... speaking of mini-Mechs, I really should post my MMT-9 frame.

I think that by this time next year, all of the Elite Machaniers will have jumped on the mini-mech band wagon. EDIT I just opened the LXF and i descovered that the elbow joints are "Improperly Placed" so you should proabably adjust them.

what is it with everyone building big mini-Mechs nowadays? first LTE, then Bio, and now you! :P anyway, nice work. it has a nice bulkiness to it. I have to agree with... ED or Richie, whoever said it, that the foot design is a bit odd, yet I kinda like it. one thing I'd like would be for the foot-to-leg joint redesigned for some better maneuverability. otherwise, I really like this.

Quoting ED Eroomdivad Sweet. Except of the feet, they look a bit off. Oh, an the first picture is broken (ie. wrong picture)
Why so it is . . . I'll fix that later. And thanks, i coldn't really think of a better foot design EDIT: Fixed.
