War and natural disasters can leave your planets in shambles. Debris, junk, and rubble are a pain in the rear. It costs time, money, and sometimes lives to clean the devastated areas. Not anymore. The Ludgonian Industrial Union is now offering a free clean-up service.
The LIU does not sell any of the products about to be shown, but rather we send these LIU staffed products to your planets to do your dirty work. And, we do it for free*. Let's take a look at some of the products you'll see zooming around the disaster area.
LIU Orange Chicken
The Orange Chicken doesn't look that special, but its vital to the clean-up operation. Its mobility allows it to traverse rubble laden fields and streets with ease. The Orange Chicken scouts out the damage.
This antenna beams back the discoveries to the rest of the Salvage Team, including the LIU Junk Frog.
The Orange Chicken finds a tire...
LIU Junk Frog
The real meat of our clean-up operation is the LIU Junk Frog. It lifts, moves, or drags debris to trucks to be taken away. Its strange name comes from the arrangement of its limbs that reminded the designers of frog legs.
The Junk Frog's rear end. Note the exhaust system, warning lights, and ID.
From the top view, you see various comm equipment and such. Nothing to exciting, its made to clean up junk after all.
The large windscreen gives the pilot a great view of what he's doing. You wouldn't want him to accidently toss a worker into a junk pile.
A close up of the Junk Frog's fingers. They have the perfect combination of strength and sensitivity.
A short ladder lowers to allow access to the cockpit.
The Junk Frog approaches the tire found by the Orange Chicken and lifts it off the ground. The Frog then throws it up into a flatbed truck.
The Junk Frog can walk in an awkward bi-pedal mode, but it gets around better with a four limbed, ape-like stroll.
*Note: The LIU sends these crews for free under one condition, we get to keep the junk. We'll recycle it and re-sell it. We also reserve the right to keep any and all documents, blueprints, and schematics we find in the rubble. Refusal to cooperate in any manner will cause the LIU to charge you for the clean-up service. Just so you know, we price gouge.
Note2: Hey Stephen, thanks for the review, but it said above still loading. That's why there was only one pic and no descriptions. They are all up now.
i like the theme! it s a good concept, the powered armors look good, orange and recycle stickers flashes, and add to the beauty, but, it seem to me that it could have been better to use all elements together as 1 unit, only, bigger! still, great job!
First, these little helpers look great. No doubt that they´ll do their business with perfection! I like their proportions. But, I´d never use the LIU´s cleaning service. I just don´t want to find one of my not yet released designs with a made by LIU badges on it. I´d rather live in waste! ;-P Besides that, two very solid creations. Good job!
"love" the comment of Saber-scorpion... Stop, I won't tell bâd things on him, but he's just wrong. It's not simple, it's creative, funny and a pleasure to look at, I love orange and the Junk Frog is a little masterpiece of 4-legs mecha ! Nice idea and cool vehicles !
Nice! But I think the chicken has whimpy legs. They don't look sturdy. And it's antenna should be pointing up, but oh well, it's still good. Oh yeah, and we'll take one of your cleaning sevices. (just had a nasty accident involving our sewerage system...) We'll pay for it though, never know if somebody flushed a VERY important document down the-- well, you know...
Intergalactic garbage disposal is a niche that you've conquered more than adequately!
I'm glad to see that I'm not alone in the appreciation of copious orange brick creations, especially the Junk Frog, a great use for those 'Town Recycling truck' pieces.
All in all, another great addition to the LIU.
Great stuff, you got the recycle truck right? I would like to get it myself. This is a good idea, after battles not everyone has time to salvage what's theirs. You should a space salvage team as well. Nice work.
You seemed to be in a hurry with this one . . . you didn't mention one bit about the Junk Frog. How does it work? What does the damn thing do? I can tell by the photo it doesn't clean up very much. I suggest adding an enormous vacuum sweeper via the tank on the underside, floodlights on top, and several more arms that could act as magnetic cranes (what are they called again, that they use in junkyards?). For the first time in months I've rated anything a four to five instead of straight fives, 'cause you need more detail. Please repost it with more info. But, to end with a soft note, it's very, very creative, just like everything else you do! The MMF is proud to be your ally, even though it doesn't do much . . .
