BM1-Raptor
Medium weight, bipedal, assault vehicle - Pimm Industries
About this creation
BM1-Raptor

Press Release:
Pimm Industries is proud to announce its first operational biped, all-terrain, battle-armour.
We have beaten the other corporations to the punch and you as our investors will be happy to know that this unit will be protecting your investments.

The latest in artificial intelligence has been incorporated into this machine as well as our patented bio-mechanical interface. The pilot of the Raptor has been ‘jacked in’, which means that he can pilot the Raptor as fast as he could move his own body.

Specification:
Weight: 45,359kg (50 tons)
Engine: Fuel cell technology powering experimental myomer fibers
Crew: 1 + AI
Main Weapon:
2X Rotary Cannon - 50mm caseless, 100 rounds/second
Secondary Weapons:
1) 50cal anti-personal machine gun (nose mount)
2) 4X, 4-round, long range missiles, ‘tank busters’ (arm mount)
Armour: Undisclosed. Laminate design with experimental energy absorption properties. Light weight.
Classification: Medium weight, bipedal, assault vehicle.

This is my first attempt at a mech and is also my tribute to bley (there may be a few old grey pieces in there as I am not the best at telling the two apart and the pieces are mixed together).

The only reason I built the Raptor was to showcase the rotary cannons, which were inspired by
Nunoyo Bizznizz’s excellent design. I also used his leg design in my creation with some modifications.

Inspiration also came from Brian Kescenovitz’s great designs; and for the colour Nannan Z. who is the king of bley.

This was actually a bit frustrating to build. I likely have every type of brick/piece ever created in black, and I have enough bley bricks/arches/etc to make my LOTR battle scene to the scale to handle my near doubled Evil Hord , which will be the orcs and goblins for the battle; however, I have surprisingly few of the modified light bley pieces.

Fortunately my wife was at Wal-Mart the other day and they had the Lego Star Wars B-Wing on sale for $12. My lovely wife picked up six of them and saved the day on this moc. The only downside is that I have to sort these sets out – sigh, I have new respect for the sellers on Bricklink .
Things I would change:
1) make it more stable – it has lost it’s legs more times than I care to think about
2) it is not that flexible due to a lack of pieces
3) the ‘head’ needs to be wider to match the scale of the legs
4) did I already mention needing more pieces?

Thanks to all of you who I respect – you know who you are. And of course, thanks to my family for tolerating and joining in on my obsession.

Another shot of those lines.









Highlight the links for the rotary cannon.









Full frontal of the rotary cannon and LRMs.







The cockpit; and always there is far more detail in there than I could actually photograph, as most of it can't be seen. I decided to use the Ten Numb figure as I now have several of them.







Yet another shot of those lines and the rotary cannon links.

After years of working for the military, the Raptor decided to try his hand (even though he didn't have any) at another profession. Knock, Knock... "Hello, I'd like to offer you this free copy of Watchtower". "Honey, it's for you..." ~ Chris.

The design is exellent, color scheme very good. Though there are a few flaws(in my mind) first the legs look a tad too long, just a tad, and the fins sticking out of the head seem out of place, just a bit too long. Yes I'm a critic. Overall I really like it though especially the studless design.

Nice,the guns really caught my attention right on,and great job on the toes,I will get to making a mech eventually...Oh,If you don't mind me asking,are you a historian?Because I was watching the History channel and they interveiwed a guy named Lee Jones and I couldn't help but wonder if it was you...

Sweet. I like the fins at the top, and all of the Gatling's (laughing maliciously). The cockpit is different, in a good way. Nice job. P.S. Thanks for reviewing my Mumak. =)

Great mech, especially for your first try. I like the studlessness (something that I'm not very good at, myself). The "nose" cannon can turn upwards to be parallel to the ground, right? It's kind of hard to tell from the pictures.

Neato! I like the cannons and details of them. The legs might be a little too smooth for a mech, but hey, it's your take on it, not mine!

All right Lee! You finally gave in and built a mech! This turned out really well, especially for a first try. An imposing size and stance with a clean overall look. In fact, it reminds me a bit of my first mech, the Radiant. I really hope you try some more because this is a heck of a great start...fine work here Lee!

A really nice mech, the legs, unfortunatley, have a "built in to the fram" look which i'm not so crazy about. Everything else looks great.

Gorgeous Lee and I'm not just saying that because you mentioned me. ;-D I do agree with you that the top could be bigger, but I also know that the legs can only hold so much weight. I've been doing a lot of actual MOC building lately and I've come to realize that most of my LDRAW designs simple wouldn't stand up on their own, but that's one of the pitfalls in designing MOCs on a computer. Live(build) and learn. Once again, great MOC.

Nice one, Lee!! Love the "horns" over the central section - gives it a bit of an attitude. I'm usually a fan of a lot of greebs, but I'm diggin' the clean look of this. Color me inspired...I may have to take a night off and try a mech of my own one of these days. Anywho, lookin' good!

As someone who appreciates a good mech but can't seem to get a handle on building them properly, I say this is an outstanding first attempt. I really like the smooth clean lines, great use of those curved slopes. The feet, normally a weak spot on many mechs, actually look very good here -- though I think I'd extend the toes by a stud or two. Better builders than me will have to advise you on correcting flimsiness or walkability issues, as those problems have plagued the handful of mechs I've been able to complete. Just as long as it looks cool: Form over function! (P.S. the next time you see roses on sale, or even if they're not, you need to pick up about six dozen for Mrs Jones.)
