Hey there Hewarth! It's been awhile! I just finished up my first year of college this month and when I got home I got an itch to take out all my Exo-Force sets. I remember last year you were asking about the Jungle Thrasher that I planned to build. You'll be happy to hear that it's pretty much finished (I have one piece missing from it, but should be able to get it soon). I'm gonna try and post pictures soon. How's it been going?

There's not really much that goes along with it. In the event that I don't respond to messages, or there's a site issue that I'm not there for, you would take care of it. I just wanted another staff member just in case. Continue as you were :P

As for the Jungle Thrasher: I buyed a digital version of the BrickJournal volume 2 issue 4 - Winter 2008 (Which was 75% cheapier) and looked closely at the images to see which parts are used and how it is build. I buyed every single part from 6 sellers on bricklink (It is easier if you make one colour after another) and builded it. I had a problem with the cockpit but i am sure that i build it to atleast 95% correct!
So far I have all of the retail and exclusive sets, but none of the polybags and none of the cancelled sets. I've built and stickered all of the 2007 and 2008 sets, working on the 2006 sets. Only a few left to complete.
Sure, feel free to upload the parts lists. I'm sure it'll help more than just me. And no rush.
That is a pretty sweet looking MOC, I like it better than the River Dragon.
Are you planning to try to build that "White Moa" I posted about? I'm still a bit iffy on the name, it kinda fits, but not quite. Any better ideas?
As for the prototype: I don´t think that i buy the parts and build it because it looks rather fragile and a bit akward to me. Maybe i upload a list of it too. And for the name i have following suggestions: White Striker; Combat Walker or White Guardian.
Also thank you for the compliment about my MOC! :)
I think I'll blend two and end up with "Moa Striker". It fits in with some of the 2008 naming scheme of a noun and action/agent noun.
Storm (noun) Lasher (agent noun)
Chameleon (noun) Hunter (agent noun)
Jungle (noun) Thrasher (agent noun)
Moa (noun) Striker (agent noun)
Arachnoid (adverb) Stalker (agent noun)
Assault (verb) Tiger (noun)
Dark (adverb) Panther (noun)
Okay, so I guess it is more like a naming scheme where one of the words just ends in an "er"
The Moa part works with the whole animal theme, though. A Moa is a huge flightless bird, but I picked the name because the Moa pets from the first Guild Wars are pretty badass (though in game they look more like a Phorusrhacos)
Genki, are you interested in create your own Exo-Force Battle Machines?, Characters?, Stories?...MOCs? Please if you want to, visit Custom Exo-Force Wiki, there you can create your own MOCs and stories. (Please I need people :))
This one already appeared on this wiki (But it has not an article)
The creator of the Sentai Angel (Mark Stafford) is a designer from lego, but i am not sure if it´s just a Moc created by him (Because it has no Code sticker and it is on Mocpages)
But after Joev it is a Exo-Force set. It could be possible that it is a prototype of a cannceled set.
Another interesting fact is that Marc created two more canceled sets: The Jungle Thrasher (Which even have a item number) and a polybag sized set consisting of Hikaru and a remote controlled turtle bot.
You should ask Joev if the Sentai Angel should get its own article.
Sentai Angel was more of a personal concept, as far as I know. It was made after Exo-Force was shelved in 2008. There are WAY too many pieces and too many details for it to have ever been released as a set. Anyways, Mark always thought Hitomi should get her own mech, because the Blazing Falcon really was Ryo's and not hers.
There's another cancelled Exo-Force prototype that was considered for 2008, but was aborted early on. I like to call it the "White Moa" and figure Hitomi would pilot it.
And since each 2008 set had a mini bot (and this one visibly doesn't), I think it should be paired with the old prototype of the Mini Medic Bot that was to come with the H.R.T. Not sure how or where it would connect to the "White Moa".
Well, he is from another country. Maybe Lego magazines are different there? I looked through my magazines as well, but mine may not be 100% complete. I can tell that the first page of the magazine was space themed (those white dots on a blue sky, probably stars).
I have ideas for 3 more stories, but i´m not sure about 2 of them.
One of them is a story what could happened after Ghost of the Past (With the Devastator as Major character.)
The other one is a story, based on a lab-escape game. It is a story where Ha-Ya-To, Ryo and another pilot found a secret lab of the golden city with many dark secrets. (I´m not sure to write this, because the story could may to "dark".)
I also want you to ask if you know a detailed instruction of the Blockade Bulldozer, because i have in 19 days birthday and my parents give me a second Gate Assault as present. I already have a detailed instruction of the Swift fighter. (LINK)
