Fuel Depot: Intergalactic Space Turtle (HVA)

Postby Atavism » Tue Feb 23, 2016 4:12 pm

BEHOLD the TURTLE of profound mass!
From off his BACK we're selling GAS!
He's pretty SLOW but we don't mind!
It makes our shop easy to FIND!

As a happy accident, the boat piece that makes the shell is already 12 long, so the head has to go for gameplay, which I think makes it better:

(Oh no! We're under attack!)

I'd like to add that this build makes me unreasonably happy.

Thank you, I'm glad you like it!

As a gentleman, I do not acknowledge my own puns, or else they lose their edge. ;)

It makes perfect sense that the turtle hides its head during game (=battle = danger).

Pretty and funny :-)

He gets all scared with the explosions and the dying. Glad you liked the build!

More fun stuff Atavism! NPU with the minifig raft. It's hilarious that the head is retracted during battle. I imagine a giant, peacefull turtle would become rather shell shocked frightened when coming under heavy long range shelling fire. :lol:

Some suggestions for the fleet- Some kind of whaling/fishing factrory ship (might be an enemy fleet capital ship). A Smaller fishing/reasearch vessel. A futuristic Rainbow Warrior (the Greenpeace ship, not the Dupont NASCAR). Maybe some kind of surfers as your frame squadrons. And a Yellow Submarine!

P.S. now I have Octopus's Garden and Yelow Submarine bouncing around in my head...

He just wants to be friends! Poor turtle.

I think that Greenpeace or Rainbow Warriors would be pretty appalled at the idea of slapping a giant gas station on the back of some poor spaceturtle.

My HVA's are going to be neutral and interchangable with whatever fleet I'm fielding, both because I don't want to build a bunch of them and because I'm very proud of my megafauna. I do have an Ijad Megalodon on the way though... :twisted:
