With the need for a powerful and fast ground vehicle, the Blacktron Future Generation developed the Apocalypse Strider. Combining the speed of the Tri-Wheeled Tyrax and the firepower of the Sub Orbital Guardian, the Apocalypse Strider cannot be taken down easily.
About this creation
As some of you may know, this is not my creation. LEGO sold the Allied Avenger(6887), the Sub Orbital Guardian(6878), and the Tri-Wheeled Tyrax(6851) together in a value pack and included this model as instructions. With a lack of pictures of this online, I decided to upload it.
The size and weight of the vehicle limit how fast the engine can move it, so Variable Control Thrusters were mounted on the side to near double the speed.
The weapon arms provide stability for sharp turns.
Mounted above the third wheel is a rocket that provides the astonishing top speed.
Behind the cockpit, two laser guns are stored if the vehicle breaks down. Behind those are the dual Energy Grenade launchers.
On the right sits the pilot, who has a separate button to trigger the rear rocket. On the left is the passenger/gunner.
The weapons have to be raised to bring them into firing position.
This is different from my previous models in that it is Blacktron 2, not Classic Space, and that it is not my own build. After ordering the final set I needed to build this, I decided to put it up here since I hadn't done so in a while.
