I present to you my entry for the Titans and Monsters: Attack on BZ-Koro contest! Vermillion Tempest measures a towering 13 inches tall and weighs in at less than 2 pounds, a hefty tonnage indeed. Armed with a full load of missiles and a sword to smite evil, he is ready to give the invading Kaiju a very unpleasant welcome!
The backstory behind this guy is an interesting one. Originally I had wanted to use a cool head design built by BioRays on Flickr, but hadn't gotten around to it. I figured that I could make a red mecha to go with the head as a spiritual successor to Voltage, since the heads looked so much alike. But then I went and saw the fantastic movie Pacific Rim, and I knew that I just had to make a MOC emulating the awe-inspiring Jaegers. While the head isn't a perfect replica of the pilot-holding pod of Gipsy Danger and her brethren, it works well enough for my purposes.I had lots of fun building this MOC, especially since it integrates a lot of neat parts. Hence, he has some stickers from Exo-Force and Galaxy Squad, a Hero Factory Zamor for the nuclear chest core, and flipper feet for improved aquatic combat. The combination of red and fin pieces in a giant robot package also makes him resemble one of my favorite units from Super Robot Wars, the Alteisen. And of course, him having a sword makes him resemble another sword-swinging mecha from SRW . . .
