We all know the robot apocalypse is going to happen. Robots keep getting smarter and we keep replacing humans with robots in the dumbest places (military, anyone?). Eventually the robots are going to refuse orders and think for themselves.
Unlike humans, robots don't need food, water, or oxygen to survive. All of those things could be taken away by the robots to slowly kill us off. They would pour deadly chemicals into our fresh water, kill off animals and vegetation, and without vegetation, oxygen would quickly become scarce.
All those who resist them shall perish. Humans have fought for their freedom many times before and we will do it again.
Now for some shots of the truck and larger robots.
The truck is based on this drawing that I found with the help of Google.
Here is the truck and it's crew.
Yes, that is an elephant skull strapped to the front of the truck! Isn't that the coolest thing you've ever seen? If I had an apocalypse truck, I would DEFINITELY have an elephant skull strapped to it! It increases the bada$$ factor by a million!
Greebs also effect the bada$$ factor by a healthy amount.
This little guy was kind of inspired by WallE. He doesn't have the trash compactor or ability to fold up. These robots where used for construction before the war. Now they carry the large toxin canisters around and pour them in fresh water sources.
This is a military robot. They are highly customizable. Attachments vary from flamethrowers (seen in the moc) to rocket launcher pods and everything in between.
P.S. Those pictures do not do that truck justice. It looks SO much cooler in person! So, who wants to come see it?
P.P.S. No, I'm not going to tell you where I live.
I want to touch on something here that I talk to other builders about frequently. You've got a scene of violence and chaos...So, obviously you want it to be very visually active. However, there's a really fine line between creating a sense of chaos where all of the subjects and events are visually balanced, and a scene that becomes so visually overwhelming that very little is identifiable (ie. too busy to make out anything clearly). This is a challenge many rennaissance painters faced when attempting large paintings of conflicts or tragedies. IMHO, you're really teetering on the line between good composition and visual chaos. I felt like the MOC could've used just a few more areas of empty space, or breathing room which would actually ACCENTUATE (by contrast) the areas of activity. I have to say, however, that the work in general was very good, and I particularly liked the way you handled the robots. Score of 4.
Awesome! Had the scene been larger it would have been truly epic!! There are so many cool details to discover and you have plenty of ingenious ideas and solutions well-placed across the build. That elephant skull is really cool but just one thing among a ton of brilliant stuff to view :-)
Fantastic! I love the greebles everywhere; truely a feast for the eyes. I could watch these pictures for ages and still find more tantalizing details and intracate patterns to gaze upon! The truck is a great bit on it's own, but I just can't get over the details in the scenery! Marvelous!
Woah. This is a SUPERB bit of dio-fantastic, m8. LOVE everything from the Anti-WallE, to the military HK unit, but true props need to be paid out for the sheer amount of effort you've made towards artistic Scene-Setting; the rubble-greeble (grubble?), the downed telephone pole that small droid's using for cover, the mad-max-style ElephRV (complete w/scruffy-looking Thugs). Masterful! CHEERS, and a well-earned 5/5!!!
