Lego Hero Factory MOC: Kalek 2.0 + QUADRO
This time instead of unveiling one more Hero Factory 2.0-series MOC, I went for a team of two! Kalek 2.0 is a combat engineer whose primary task is to train and control the only semi-autonomous QUADRO (QUADripedal Remote Operated) weapons platform. QUADRO has a friendly personality matrix programmed in, but this is no house pet. With twin, double-barrel, rapid-fire ice cannons, QUADRO can stop nearly enemy in his tracks, scaling unfavorable terrain to close to close range without putting his operator in harm's way.
Speaking of his operator, Kalek 2.0 is specially trained & certified to use a very complicated remote control unit which features several failsafes and redundancies to prevent jamming or signal takeover. Should the need for direct combat arise, though, Kalek does keep a capacitor-boosted ice pistol holstered by his side. The pistol has a limited number of shots, but it packs quite a punch!
Check out the unveiling video on YouTube too:
