Entry to Ro Garcia and Chronos Omega's Hero Factory: Gear Up contest. Enjoy!
About this creation
Edmund Cliffhanger is a hero built for the mountains. His job is to capture mountain dwelling villains and bring them to justice! A tribute to the late Sir Edmund Percival Hillary who (together with Sherpa Tenzing Norgay) was the first person to reach the summit of Mt. Everest.
Edmund Cliffhanger, ready to rock!
His primary weapon is a grapple hook launcher.
Enables him to scale mountains easier!
Yes, that's a chair.
His other weapon is a strong claw. Used to cling onto rocks, shift boulders and even crush them!
Welcome robots of all voltages to Hero TV! With your host for tonight, Hero Edmund Cliffhanger!
Good evening and welcome to Hero TV!
I'm Edmund Cliffhanger, your host!
I'm here tonight to demonstrate my latest gadgets!
My incredible Crush Claw.
And my deadly Grapple Hook.
As you can see behind me, a lowlife villain is trying to escape the premises, well...
Have a taste of this!
Come here you.
You're giving me a weapon..?
Yeah, give me your best shot!
Why thank you.
You're quick, unfortunately...
Why did you even give me a weapon if you're going to take it back the next minute?!
To show the general public how bad you are in using them.
Now, we can see that he's trying to escape AGAIN.
Watch this folks!
Okay, time for you to return to your little cell.
Over my dead body!
How 'bout now?
Hmm, I've changed my mind.
Well then, that's all for tonight! Stay tuned to more!
Overlord, BIG PROPS on your use of gravity to your own purpose in the Hook shots. That's a BIG bit of Clever, and you know how I feel about Clever bits ;). GREAT creativity. Sometimes, the ideas you come up with Photography can be just as important as the choices you make with the MOC. Cheers!
I know the colors were tough, but it looks a bit elementary for your high status... I think it needs to be more custom, though that would require lots of colored technic... this contest was just tough.
An excellent MOC, and a great post overall. I'm starting to feel like I might not make it to round 2 myself!
I like it

Awesome HF MOC! And the Hero TV was a funny idea, nice job on that too. I love how the hero has a kind of theme to him, that theme being climbing. The hook thing is EPIC! Good luck in the contest, if you feel like you need it.
I dare say, perfectly excited! The torso isn't something I often see, love the green, and the equipment for climbing is shown very effective. An as for those who made the Cliffhanger references, for shame XP And for those asking about joining, I don't see why you have to be asked, just be sure to read the rules and see if you can compete....
Not only a well made MOC, but a well made page too. You don't see that every day. I like his upright, up-tight posture too. Fits him so well. Good luck in the contest ^^ Hopefully I won't crush you as hard as Cliffhanger did that villain.
