It shouldn't happen to a botanist (return to Venus part 1)
This all stems from the idea of trying to use the outer casing from the creator pod. A return trip to Venus for the botany branch of the Outer Reach Research team seemed a good excuse to build a giant venus fly trap.

Quoting Kevin Yoo Literally a Venus fly trap- curious how spacemen manage to retain their smile when encountering one.
That was such an obvious gag, I had to go there!

Quoting Alex Jean Wonderful use of the x-pod covers once again :) BTW:what do you call those stick things with dots anyway, they look like stun sticks that the Combine use in half life!
If you want to give them a fighting chance, call them cattle prods. If you are feeling mean call them glow stick - I called them glow sticks. BTW I might go pull out my Orange Box, I've missed fighting the combine!

Made me laugh :) not sure why the 2 safe botanists are smiling. Maybe they never really liked the white suit guy ? offered him up as a scapegoat

This one is beautiful! I love the colour of the pod-pieces and of course the classic space man dying. A great classic MOC with a NPU :D

I've attempted several MOCs with the pod parts, all dismal failures, then last night, inspiration! Thanks for the comments as always.

Quoting Tim C I'm glad you're revisiting this theme. Your earlier builds left your fans thirsty for more. Love the venus fly trap and your new bot. A fine use of the top and bottom of the pod. I also like the fact that they went to Venus and found a venus fly trap. Clever. I also like the pun in the first sentence. "Stems." I do so love puns.
I couldn't help but "plant" a few puns in the description.

Quoting Gale Winthrope Yellow astronaut: Ok, pay up Bert, he got snatched and it's still only the first week. Blue astronaut: *sigh* *pulls out twenty bucks and hands it to the yellow astronaut who stands smiling* Spectacular build and great idea. XD
Let's see how the odds play out for this new Venusian venture.
