Hi everyone. It has been (wow) quite some time since I have built with the Lego. A sort of dark ages I suppose, but no more. I present the first in a new theme, the Gemini MBV. Used by Team Phoenix (the first of many "teams" I hope to introduce to MOCpages) it's rugged, it's dirty, it's red. It has a somewhat old-school toy appearance which is what I was going for.. BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE. I can't stand red Lego but I had to use it eventually. Photographing red is just as big a pain as building with it. I had to brighten the pictures and then adjust some contrast. I used over-the-top contrasting for some of the pics intentionally. But I hope you will enjoy the experience anyway.
Team Phoenix is like the good ninja terrorist clan of the twenty-sixth century. Their planet is martian-like, hence RED. Think Seti Alpha Five from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (THIS IS SETA ALPHA FIVE.) Or just think Mars, and that will give you a general idea. They are at war with and impose sneak tactics on teams Cobra, Hawk, and Falcon (collectively known as Team Cobra Hawk Falcon).
OOOOOOOOH my god !!! Really I adore this MOC ! You don't post often but when you do... The color scheme is absolutely great, the shape of the tank is simply perfect and unique, the minifigs are cool ! If it was an official TLC theme I would buy all the sets ! Congrats on a fabulous MOC !!!
I hear ya. Personally I love red, but when I try to photograph red Lego it tends to get washed out and look more orangeish.
I like it

Dude, that is a nice tank. Great workmanship on the shape and weapons, reminds me of an old-school RTS vehicle. That pilot cavity is genius, too, and the diorama+figures=cool piece of detail. Nice work, you do a good job building in red, even if you dislike using it.
that's a s**h load of red but its doing it for me the design reminds me of a over powered M1A2 meets ww2 armored car and is all one color. a feat that i have yet to accomplish on just one creation. and what are these teams your specking of? are you going to make them and let people join them? and if you are I've got a pretty good hover tank laying around that's just itching for a fight.
