About this creation
LIU Mantis Mining Mech - M3



The Ludgonian Industrial Union was bored waiting for bricklink parts for our new cargo ship, so we decided to build a mining mech. But don't fret, we invested enough time to make the Mantis Mining Mech the best new tool in mountain mashing.




The M3 got its name because its a mech, it mines, and its arms look ever so slightly like the arms of the Praying Mantis.







A single pilot runs the M3 from the safety of his air conditioned cockpit.








The broad feet of the M3 keep it steady in rough terrain. Remember, mining mountains means many missteps.








Each of the M3's arms have two jackhammers and one rock shredding fan drill. These tools effectively remove rocks and minerals from mountains, cliffs, and shoes. You know you hate getting rocks in your shoes. (Shoes may be utterly destroyed).






A tank of lube on the M3's back feeds through hoses and dispenses on the blades to keep them cool. Make your own jokes about tanks of lube.






The mandatory computer shot.










The M3 in action tearing up a cliffside.








Note: Even if you don't feel like mining, it's a ton of fun and it's a great stress reliever. Stop beating the kids, buy a Mantis Mining Mech.

This one's a freak...and I love it! It's got a great profile, and that strong shot of green with the canopy is perfect. I'll take two...note: for God's sake don't throw out something like "lube tanks" to this crowd, we're already trying desperately to behave ourselves!!!

Nice one -- great contrast between the canopy color and grey body, and excellent detail work on the legs.

Your highnesses' mechs are always a interesting and unique shape and this one is no exception. And yes, intentional or not, I love the classic space feel of it! Well done, melaud! *does curtsey* hangon a tick-Chris didn't mention the loob tank? What the..?

Another first for the LIU, a mech for mining instead of killing. :) For some reason it reminds me of the Space Police 2 sets.

My oh my what a marvelous machine from the mind of the magnanimous monarch. Mechs that deal with more than mere mortal combat really make my month... OK that's enough of that. ~ Chris.

It reminds me of the MOCs of mister Jonotron K: perfect "toy", with something of "Classic Space" in it... I love that kind of MOC ! A bit unusual for you, because it's almost "serious", but it so well built and so beautiful that it deserves a great 5/5.
