VOAT: Spyrius "Gobbledegook"
About this creation
Those insipid Spyrius bastards are at it again! Lately they've been using these Gobbledegook ships to emit fake distress signals via their long range transmitter array. When any starships hear the distress beacon they are, by law, required to assist. And in doing so fall prey to a pack of waiting Spyrius Saucer Centurions...

Couple of influences here: Fedde's Spidermonkey, Angler fish and WW2 me110 night fighters.


First I tried adding a second cockpit but it really wasn't working,


so I ditched it and played around with some latticing on the front. It was alright but not quite there yet,


so I got rid of those shoulder gun thingies to add some fang looking things:




Kinda feel like I'm going over old ground here with some of my older designs like the Hagfish, Harvester of Sorrow and a few others but meh. Where do you draw the line between someone's recognisable style and mindless repetition?






Check out the pilot: he gets into his work just a bit tooooooo much...

Very original idea. That is how I were imagining Spyrius war techniques. Sly, powerful, cunning. Also, general ship design is very original (though I thin that second cockpit would be great). Best parts are those luring tentacles. They seems so fragile that is a big suprprisee for me that they can hold their own :D

The equippment would've worked better for a Mysterion but i'm glad fpr any classic space faction, too.

quoting Bob Joe 0 1in 1997 a girl called lauren was walking through the forest and then she just disappeared. No one ever found her until 2000 when a young girl called Mary found her body and markings on her chest saying: I wasnt' pretty enough and now that you have read this she will appear in your mirror saying you're not pretty enough and kill you. By the way the girl called mary<3 died shortly afterwards. To be saved, paste this to five other bands. This is true. Now that you have started reading this, please do not stop. This is so scary. Post this on 5 pages in 143 minutes. When you are done, press F6 and your crushes name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is scary because it actually works (btw great moc)

That's really cool. The idea of a salvage ship (a few below my comment) is a good one.

I like it. For some reason it reminds me of one of those deep-sea fish with the lights...

See, this is what happens when you fall of the wagon at step 7 and then try to build after the binge. hahaha I love it! The concept is original and the build itself is top notch! Lookin forward the the upcoming spoof! ~ Chris

Excellent description for the MOC. Most "stories" set around a MOC are overly complicted (I've done it myself) or don't seem to make sense with what's been built. This not only has a good story, but it fits. It's a devious little trap, making ships come on their to a trap...

Very cool. Those antenna up front are very neat looking. It does look like hagfish, but I personally enjoy that kind of thing. Again, excellent work, ShannO.

This just looks menacingly evil! It could easily have been Black Fantasy with different colors. Nice backstory, too.

Looks like a spider in a way... Not a repetition, it's innovative. And it's not everyday that we can see an awesome Spyrius MOC !

I think those graspers in the front would be great catching other ships; Somewhat like a spiders web.

Spyrius! I saw this and said WOW, it recalls the spindly style of some of your others but is still totally fresh. The transmitter array seems perfectly paired with the VOAT cockpit. Awesome!

Nice little ship. I like the web effect. You could reverse it's use and make it a reciever. Out amongst the stars collecting old earth tv shows. Jackpot if you get a whole I Love Lucy. Don't you want to remove that guys grin somehow. He's just too self satisfied. And evil. Oh, well, we need our villians too. see ya. garth

That's one of the coolest transmitter arrays I have ever seen, and the ship holding it up is just as good. Great concept and build.
