RASHER - Not a construction mech
Ready for the construction bot to wreck all other construction bots?
About this creation
People, PLEASE!

We have tired to be nice, maybe even delicate when it comes to your feelings.

Well, the Agency can't stand it anymore! Mechs of late have been dull and lame. Sorry mom, but I don't have anything nice to say! Its time to bring out the grandaddy of them all RASHER to whip you all into mecha-lego-nerd-frenzy (ourselves included).

Here's the deal. We've seen our share of construction bots

CONSTRUCTION MECH/APU
CZ-35 LIGHT CONSTRUCTION MECH (TOOLBOT)
CZ-70 CONSTRUCTION MECH 'HARD HAT'
Dreadnaught Paladin
CZ-140 SUPER HEAVY EXCAVATOR MECH
Boom-Lift-Mech
LBSM (light bipedal support mech)
POWER LOADER INSPIRED BY THE MOVIE 'ALIENS'
LIU Forest Eater
Battle Mechs

Some are good. But they all lack the kick you in the teeth then smack you in the back of the head with a tire iron attitude. Yes we need bots to lift things, Yes we need bots to move things. And yes we occasionally need bots to fight things. But don't we need one to annihilate everything else? Seriously, if you see RASHER coming down the street, you don't move to the other side, you get vaporized!

Well, the Agency's next primary design philosophy is to not talk about the previous design philosophies it itself ignores. In this case RASHER's color violates what Father ORANGE considers to be THE primary directive. Gotta say though, the contructiony-bot yellow deceptively disguises its true destructive capabilities.

On first glance, RASHER looks relatively lethargic and gangly. It is hard to make heads or tails of its boxy torso and EVA-inspired slouch. Sure, its claws are hard to miss. But when they hang from those long spindly arms, one probably can't help think there isn't much to this mech.

Be fooled. Please, be fooled!

RASHER is huge enough to squash your poor little bot's melon (see what he did to this poor sucker)! But you should be more concerned about its hidden weaponry instead of his size. GUNS, GUNS, GUNS like fricken everywhere! Front and back, top and bottom. Oh how glorious the destruction will be when 10 missile packs deliver their punishment!

Much like his older siblings, RASHER was meant to punish like a beer drinker, but move like a fine gazelle soaked in a bath of Crystal (sorry Mr. Leech). Also like brother Wraith, RASHER shares a similar heavy-duty foot and leg design. It has a nice broad base with stiff support for good articulation. Other really nice details include the ripped scholiosis laden abdomen section, the multi-axis offset torso, the fully sealed cockpit with dual opening canopies and the design contrast between upper and lower arms.

All in all, this thing is here to kick your dog and play dirty. It means business, which means your bot is getting written off as a loss. Sorry again mom.

I like the design of this mech. The hidden weapons does hold some reservations for me, but I can deal with that. Though I must that I found the listing of other construction mecha for your comparison to be in poor taste.

Wow, u deleted my last comment. Seriously man, shows how low you are. i don't delete bad reviews, and i actually said it was a great mech. plus, my mechs were meant to be simple, yet creative, so then other people can easily make them.

The color scheme does a very good job of hiding this things destructive capabilities. Where did all those guns come from anyway? I can't see them in the main picture.

Great job. It kinda looks like a type of Ganmen(not Gundam) from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. I have a strong addiction to that show! It's so F---ing epic when the mech become the size of a GALAXY! (Don't worry; the show/storyline is still amazing even though it takes a HUGE dump on physics!) Sorry about my rambling. I just couldn't help it. See ya later! ~Phong Chang

The thumbnail makes it look like a sweet little thing..........Until you zoom and see the little skull. Then, you say, "That's a gun...and so is that, and so is that, and that, and that...." Great job, dude
