Alrighty, I've decided my life is too boring, and that I need to put myself to a challenge. So, I decided, "Hey! Why not make a MOC every day until March break?" So that's exactly what I'm going to do.
From today until the start of the March break (March 13th), I will be making and posting a new MOC or fig. Yes that's right, I'm making a long-term commitment that probably won't work out, and is going to require lots of work. (Huh. Kinda like marriage
So anyways, here's the grand opening, the cutting of the ribbon, my first MOC of the challenge!
Wah Wah Waaaaaaahhhhhhhhh
Yes I know it's barely anything, but I didn't specify size. Plus, with one having to be built everyday, I'll probably only be doing smaller MOCs, with some bigger ones on days where I have more free time.
What is it? Well, it's a sentry gun that can either operate independently, or be taken over with the remote override. It has to be reloaded manually, which is a downside, although each box has a 65 round capacity. Also, it has a heat sensor, motion sensor, heartbeat sensor, and range detector built in, meaning it's much less likely to fire at a piece of tumbleweed. All friendly soldiers are given a badge with an electromagnetic frequency that tells the gun they are allies.
Here's a closer view of the gun.

And a view of the ammo boxes and remote controller.
I made the piece on the remote the same colour as the eyepiece on the gun, so if I use it in a game of Brikwars, the players will be able to tell which remote is the override (I have a lot of those walkie-talkie pieces)
Comments welcome, and be sure to check back tomorrow!
