About this creation




Claw close-up

Close-up of the middle, boulder carrying section

On the underbelly, you can see the how the little scout-plane is attached.


And of course, we're missing the most important feature of Life on Mars, the modular building!


Lets look at each section individually, shall we?

The head:

The forlegs:

The boulder-carrier:

The hindlegs and claw:
...This section does pretty well as a stand-alone mech, don't you think?

(Its difficult to make those aliens look like they're panicking)

One more feature seen on the original set, the ability to stick the head on the forlegs and create a humanoid mech:


...

The Epic Showdown!




VICTORY!

Spare parts:
Overall, I think I did a pretty good job with this mech (I kinda overgreebled a little though), and I now feel confident enough to build more mechs, so stay tuned!

I can remember buying a few Mars Mission sets when I was about 8 years old, sadly life on mars was a few years before I was born. But I am still a big fan of it! This mech`s ability to make a humanoid mech really caught my eye! this is better than the original!

I'm a huge Life on Mars fan, so I just have to comment on this. Really great detail, and nice job making it where it transforms into different mechs, just like the official sets.
