The SC-AG Class Mech . MocOlympics Round 2, Group 2H. Master Shifu Leo J vs Josh Barron-Proeliator of the 74th floor. This is my entry for the 2009 MocOlympics Round 2 in the category "Mech" against Josh Barron-Proeliator of the 74th floor. Enjoy! .
Opponent: Josh Barron-Proeliator of the 74th floor
WARNING: This MOC contains mature content and imitation Bionicle figures. May not be suitable for the faint of heart and/or hardcore Bionicles fans. XD
SMACK TALK: My opponent has said, and I quote, ".... You ready Shifu? Cause the real dragon warrior [in reference to the antagonist Tai Lung] is coming home!" All I can say is, in the benevolent word of the protagonist Po, "Skadoosh!"
This is my very first attempt at building a mech. And because I do not have any mech-building experience, I sought the magnificent creations of the great mech builder Sugegasa for idea and inspiration (... we all have to start somewhere...). His design is simple but elegant. It does not require specialized parts. It certainly helps someone who does not own a whole lot of LEGOŽ pieces.
So here's my version of his mech style. Hopefully, I did not butcher his design (and advanced apologies if I did)...

The SC-AG Class Mech
Sugegasa calls his mechs Unmanned Control Experiment Machines. I'd like to affectionally call my version the S(exy), C(ute), A(nd) G(orgeous) Class Mech or the SC-AG.
FULL BATTLE WEAPONRY
If an army man has a bazooka, the SC-AG has a "dahooka", a standard-issue hook. (Get it? SC-AG, hooka' ... alrighty. moving on.)
SC-AG: " HOOK 'EM, DANNO! "
"Hand-tossed" D(irect) A(erial) R(eciprocating) T(orpedo) or D.A.R.T. The reciprocating function activates upon target getting sticked PO/PV/PR.
SC-AG: " UP THE WAZOO! "
Borrowing from the prophetic lyrics of Sir Mix-A-Lot, "It's long, and strong, and you wouldn't wanna get the friction on" with this traditional long sword.
SC-AG: " SLICIN' AND DICIN'! "
Quad-Laser SK-N Gun (quad = 4, SK-N sounds like skin. Put them together... nevermind ...)
SC-AG: " IMMA FIRIN' MAH LAZERS! "
P(hipson) U(nstable) K(ilowatic) E(lectrocuter) or P.U.K.E. Victims tased with this weapon usually shake and bake... and maybe puke.
SC-AG: " IMMA CHARGIN' MAH TAZER! "
Please give us a moment to reconfigure the SC-AG for a live-action demonstration ... bzzzt, clink, pfzzzt, clang, clang, clank, shooooozt, burrrzwshididdle, whonk ...
While the SC-AG can be fitted with basic and special weaponry, it's just as deadly without it. The B(read) A(nd) B(utter) E(nticement) or B.A.B.E. Tactic usually gets the job done. To demonstrate, we recruited a mystified Mine Mech operated by no other than ... Oh my ... Peter Pippenton ... This could get ugly ...
SC-AG: "Yoohoo! Mr. Mine Mech!"
Mine Mech: "[startled] Who goes there?"
Mine Mech: "[softly] Oh, a bebe! [focuses his ocular] Turn -- Peter charm switch -- ON!"
Mine Mech: "Check out them mechanical curves!!!"
What? Hey! Yo!... Peter actually got off his mech!
Peter: "Ooh la la! I'm in love!"
Peter: "[dumbfounded, almost teary-eyed] Oooooh yeah, uh ha ha ..."
Disgusted, the SC-AG picks up her foot and drives it down to crush Peter!
While Peter runs for dear life, his friends comes to the rescue.
Zaktan: "Leave Peepin' Pete alone!"
Toa Matoro: "Pick on somebody your own... Hey, those are some perky... "
Toa Matoro: "So, who's Marga and who's Rita?"
Zaktan: "I want my mommy!"
Toa Matoro: "I guess a date is out of the question..."
