LIU Port Guard
Protect your spaceports with the LIU Port Guard...
About this creation
LIU Port Guard


The Ludgonian Industrial Union, with its infinite wisdom, has developed the answer to spaceport security, the Port Guard. Insure that smugglers, terrorists, and Pelicans are kept out of your ports! Buy one today!



Using laser scanners and sensors, the Port Guard inspects incoming cargo ships for contraband. When offenders are discovered, they are boarded and the contraband its removed. If they refuse to cooperate...well, you'll see.




The LIU's Atmospheric Guard (formerly the Coast Guard) has used the Port Guard for several years with tons of success. Several shipments of Space Spice, Mega-Bloks, and Chicago Cubs gear have been intercepted and destroyed.




The large engine (left) gives the Port Guard the speed required to intercept cargo ships.









At the tip of the large engines are two nose cones that contain laser scanners. These scanners read the barcodes on shipping containers to insure that they are due at the port. They are like glorified supermarket scanners.







On the right are two antenna sensors. These sensors can see inside cargo containers. They insure the containers are loaded with what the barcode says they are.







A rear shot shows off the secondary thrusters connected to the Port Guard's cabin. They allow the ship to manuever around larger ships while conducting its scans.






Offending ships that refuse to be boarded or attempt to flee, will be destroyed by one of the Port Guard's four ship to ship missiles. These missiles tuck away when not in use.






The mandatory computer shot...







Note: The glorified supermarket scanner can cause blindness if directed straight into the eye. Whew, lawsuit avoided...

And when in atmosphere, it rolls around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around and around... Nice ship though

how do you succesfully destroy Mega Bloks if they are all war machines? And why destroy the Pelican dropships?

After the launch of Woodcorp, we've had those stupid rebellious 'Mega Blocks' attempting to destroy Woodville with smuggled shipments. Thanks to our massive waves of Grunts, we've held them back, but the shipments countinue. Or, they did until we got 10 of these things. Now Woodcorp can put it's Lego to better use, such as producing more Mocs. Obviously, we will always support the LIU, as they are one of our best customers. We give them 'Borrowed Lego', and they keep the heat off our backs with their technology. Yup, it's all good - Callum

I wanted to post a comment on this creation when it was MOC of the Day, but the MOCpages moderator never approved my comment. Back to why I commented on this...I really like it! I'm glad to see that LIU citizens are safe from scum such as Megabloks. C ya~ElNickre

nice! I think the left wing should be a bit bigger, not exactly symetrical, but just to balance things out a bit. you should also use a different cockpit.

This is an awesome moc. I love what you did with the engines especially. What is with the "war on LIU"? Are you really at war? Feel free to explain it to me in a e-mail or review.

Hi, Emperor. Those are great! a nice idea, creative too, we never make veichles for protection, only for attack. Im thinking about making one of those for protect my new cargo ship. Can you check it? General Vaiano.

I'm not liking this one as much, the entire engine assembly seems much too small compared to the size of the cabin and barcode scanner. However, the asymmetry is good. The engines are placed in the right location too, if it were too far to the left, the massive scanner would act as a rotational axis.

Right on LIU! Go Cardinals!

Down with symmetry! And Nate, there is no air resistence in space, ergo, it would not turn left.

The absurd asymmetry of this thing wonderful - gives it an authentic, believable look, for some reason. Another LIU win.

I never thought I'd say this about an LIU ship, but... nice engine array. I like the sleek, fast look of this ship, but it's kind of ruined by the bulkiness of the sensor array. If you slimmed it down to be just one sensor and maybe a cluster of greebles running along the top, it would better complement the other side.

Right then, i would like to purchase 12 of these port guards considering all the smugglers we get at our space ports.

that's quite bold, to make a spaceship so assymetrical but I like it

Well, it's not big, white and boxy but.. (snif, snif) it does have that distinctive LIU smell. Love that smell... I'll leave inference jokes up to you guys. Later ~ Chris

aha! just what we need to stop all that Cubs gear from getting in! damn marketers... getting our hopes up only to have them crash down again every... damn... year... (im from chicago) we will take 18,000!

Does it come in black and yellow trim? If so we'll take 13,000.

The best use of traffic cones EVER!! Oh and the rest of the ship is awesome as well! Haha, almost forgot about that part...

Another shipment of wnat we need, are spaceports are really being intercepted. I will take a 1,000,000 of them. I like the hidden missles at the bottom and the uneven wings. Please review my creations...

When I first saw this, I thought LIU, and I was right! Your style is instantly recognizable. I like the hidden missiles on the bottom. Maybe you should put another engine on the other side, because wouldn't the huge engines off to the side make it want to always be turning left?
