Back in the day I was a huge fan of Mladen Pejic's mechs, especially the huge six-legged ones. So I decided to try to build one myself. It ended up being smaller than I intended, but it's probably still my biggest mech.
I finished it and thought about what mayhem would ensue if some pirate managed to steal one of these things, so I decided to put a pirate flag and pirate on it. The tatooed torso and arms are from Citizen Brick, purchased at Brickworld 2011. I'd seen pictures before, and wasn't all that excited, but in-person I was really amazed at how cool his stuff was.
