Shawn Purkis's Ravager Mech Variant . Variant of Shawn's A7-N1 Ravager Mech. . This is the A7-CED Ravager Mech...I'm thinking an urban warfare focused version perhaps?
More words on the differences to come...Haha, So an abbreviated version (below) since Mocpages just kicked me and my 3 paragraphs out. Need to remember to Crtl-C what I write before I click continue...Just keep smiling :)
The brilliant original by Shawn Purkis looking much more predatory and mechwarriorish.
Btw, RGF, I think you've done the named poses thing before, I saw it and liked it. If so, just wanted to thank you.
Alternate armament: laser cannon, machine guns respectively.
Alternate Armor: Reinforced heavy leg plating.
Ok, so...I may have unintentionally taken out the battletech and put in a little robo-tech... Lol, Accident I swear, I was putting plates here and there and before I knew it, It was too late!
Shawn coolest thing I've ever worked on. Seriously, no really and I'm not just flattering. This project has highlighted/demonstrated alot of the function and fun that I feel are lacking in my own projects. Huge thanks to you for posting the instructions and being ok with me fiddling with your design.
As stated above this is an abbreviated difference summary. Legs. I REALLY liked Shawns chicken legs. Mine are bulky not of preference but necessity, This variant uses ball joints, while the original used technic rotater disc thingits which allowed a much slimmer profile. 100% of all other differences between the 2 mechs is related to this. Ball joint = thicker leg = heavier leg = struts = more lego to cover struts & Ball joints = thicker thighs = less clearance around pelvis = I didn't think any arms would fit = top mounted laser cannon instead of missiles = oh wait hands do fit...itty bitty T- Rex ones....with machine guns on the end...
...all because of using a silly little ball joint instead of the technic rotater thingie
Well, ok and then minor changes. Different cockpit, I think that's why the original looks hungrier/meaner. Along the top I switched some studs for smoother surfaces...barely worth mentioning.
(Above same pose different angle)The "Hang Low"

The "Predator" (personal favorite)

The "Hey look what I can do!! followed by a faceplant..."
