2006-02: Gojulas Giga MK-II (Prototype)

I entered this in Phenotype’s Zoids Forum Contest in February 2006. The initial darthing took forever, because there were just so many pieces to paint. Stickers were a grueling undertaking as well. Also, I did a lot of cutting and drilling. I got the idea from Pheno’s Proto Giga page, where he wished it had more of a prototype feel. This said to me: coil springs! Also, all the preview pics for Proto Giga showed shiny armor, not the dullness we ended up with.

Sacrifices made:

Battle Story
Crew: 1
Function: Assault
Stats: many.

This prototype shows many proposed improvements on the original Gojulas Giga: a pair of machine guns mounted in the nose for “picking off stragglers”, improved feet—stronger, nastier claws for enchanced stomping, Electro-Slash™ blades in the tail (ouch!), all leather interior, and a massive beam cannon. Powering the cannon and the tail blades is… well… not much is known about the power source, except that it is very unpredictable, and seems to have its own ideas about firing the cannon (it once shot through an entire mountain to get to enemies on the other side—all without input from the pilot). Also, many test pilots have had to undergo psychiatric treatment after piloting the prototype, all mentioning something “eating their brain”. Because of that, R&D ceased further development of the prototype.

    The neatest tweak that really caught my eye was the nose cannon. It was so subtle and in scale that you would swear it was original.

    The modified CP-19 with the caps is awesome. Nice rework on the CP-19.
