It's kinda like some A.I. controlled tank became self aware and took advantage towards how it was built..

The tank mode reminds me of Animated Shockwave's vehicle mode, while the...uh...."other" mode looks quite Rockman-ish.

Regardless, pretty cool stuff.

The name "Mecharoid" needs work. It sounds like something from a Preparation H ad.

Really awesome!
But as I am a jerk, what are the technical advantages of this model transforming?
Reply
:iconnch85:
NCH85 Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2008  Hobbyist Artist
its suppose to gain top speed on railway tracks as its a rail cannon monster. its transformation/robot mode purpose is to enable it to climb up mountainous regions and higher hidden grounds to do artillery bombardment.


other than that, robot mode also allows it to change firing position fast since in its vehicular mode it can only travel on tracks.

looks like you were inspired by the tank from Halo.

Oh well, I like yours more.

Still, I'm unsure of what the purpose is for the robot form. Not much reason for it to transform if the robot end has no advantage to it.

It looks like the arm parts still require to drag on the ground due to weight displacement, and as they have no wheels on the bottom they would drag at the ground. And with the cannon grafted in place on his back, the firing range becomes limited. I guess it could swipe at nearby things with it's claws, but anything that close might not give it enough time to attack.

Perhaps if instead of a hunchback form for the robot, you make the back straight so it sits up. that way weight problems are aleviated. And with a swivel torso in that mode, and ability to bend it more, it would have greatly improved area of fire. could nearly hit something point blank that way. The large arms could still knock away things that get too close, plus their weight would counteract recoil from firing enough to keep it from falling over.

never played halo, this was based off the german rail cannon, Gustav and the shagohod from MGS.

well, basically its a living sentinent robot, so "mechanical, engineering physics" are thrown outside of it (think transformers)

its suppose to gain top speed on railway tracks as its a rail cannon monster. its transformation/robot mode purpose is to enable it to climb up mountainous regions and higher hidden grounds to do artillery bombardment.


other than that, robot mode also allows it to change firing position fast since in its vehicular mode it can only travel on tracks.
