The "Crab" Autonomous Salvage Drone/Quadruped Mech
The "Crab" is an autonomous salvage drone that transforms from a small space craft into a quadruped mech.
About this creation
I'm still experimenting with small scale transforming mechs. This is the smallest yet. I think he has a lot of personality and detail. His primary function is to scour the area for salvage that can be used in field repairs or modifications. I imagine he goes about his work grumbling about what a pain it is to constantly have to clean up after the big boys fight. Please rate and comment, thank you!

I love the eyebrows:







I imagine that he is dropped from orbit onto the battlefield. Of course, he complains all the way down...

The Crab in action:

"Look at this mess! They expect me to carry this back so they can get the mods. Well what about my mods! Doesn't anyone ever think of my mods?! I need mods too, you know."



"No one else could carry all this salvage, that's for sure."

I will openly admit, the transforming MOC is currently tormenting me. I have tried a few things, but none of them are giving me the effect that I want. I will keep trying, and I plan to post whatever I can get to work, but I think you may have me on this one.

Quoting Tim C I'm surprised that I am the first to comment on this. Another nice piece of work, Daniel. I like all the claws covering this one. I especially like the final pic, the family portrait. The entire project has been a success so far.
Thanks Tim! I was a little disappointed that no one had really taken an interest in this little guy. I think he's really cool and has a lot of personality. I actually have another one, a bigger version of the Firebug that has a missile launcher. I'll post it soon. Still can't wait to see what you come up with, I'm sure it will put mine to shame :)
