An imposing, human-piloted, heavily armed and armoured, mecha, which stands 50 feet tall.

Model dimensions (approx.): 8” L x 8.5” W x 12” H. The model can be posed in a variety of positions thanks to its tilting, 360˚ rotating upper torso, bendable shoulder and elbow joints, and bendable, piston-actuated hip and ankle joints. The model's transparent cockpit window swivels upward to reveal one standard-sized LEGO spaceman at the helm of the stick and computer console.

Power is supplied by a nuclear main reactor core (located and partially visible within the lower torso) and dual power generators (located within the cockpit directly behind the pilot's seat), and is transmitted via heavy cabling throughout the body.

The Mech’s upper torso can tilt, and swivel a complete 360˚ in order to aim and discharge its primary weapon, namely 2 heavy-laser canons (one within each arm). The Mech's secondary weapons include: guided, short- (6), medium- (2) and long- (4) range, tactical nuclear ballistic missiles, and 2 dual medium-laser canons (mounted on each shoulder). Additional weapons include: dual quad-barrel rotating gatling guns with exploding tracer rounds (mounted below the nose of the cockpit), and 4 dual small-laser guns (mounted on the legs).

Defenses consist of a deflector shield grid (generated by shield modulators located on the arms, torso and legs), reinforced titanium armour plating, and Radar Absorbent Material (RAM).

The Mech is capable of walking, running and jumping, wading through shallow lakes and streams, and crushing anything in its wake (e.g., large trees, etc.). Onboard turbojets provide full flight capability for entering/exiting the battlefield, and limited flight capability during battle.

The mech's only downfall is potential over-heating (and resultant temporary shutdown of one or more systems) caused by the tremendous heat build-up that inevitably occurs as it rapidly discharges its weapons during battle (albeit onboard vents and heatsinks effectively dissipate the heat in all but extreme situations).

Here is a good view of the Mech's piston-actuated hip joints (piston-actuated ankle joints cannot be seen due to cropping issues...).

Unfortunately I cannot get a full view of the model to show-up due to cropping issues... ergo the easiest solution was to display a sideways shot... anyway, here is a good overall view of the Mech and its menacing 2 heavy-laser canons (one within each arm).
