And now... my latest masterpiece... THE TRI-DROID. Inspired by the Clone Wars movie, this was my big Lego project this summer!
About this creation
This Tri-Droid is really one of my proudest Lego achievements. Never before had I taken a concept from a picture or video and made a Lego model of it, but I think it came out well. I tried to incorporate every possible detail I could get from pictures and video clips of the movie, and also to build the droid as close to mini-figure scale as possible. After being inspired to build the droid from the Clone Wars movie, I searched MOCpages for others who may have already done it, and I thank both JP... and Zackariah Macaset for posting such great creations that helped me build my foundation ideas for the project. Although this Tri-droid is of my design, I give credit to Zackariah for helping me find a clever way to mount the guns, and to JP.. and other builders for helping me find a good way to mount the legs with that 6-holed barrel. It's very hard to find ways to get things into tri-orientation as I'm sure you both know from building your tri's. Although Zackariah's head looks very similar to mine, I came up with the idea of the lego sphere myself, and later found out that he had done the same. I guess great minds think alike huh? My model is a bit fragile, but still sturdy enough to play with amongst my other legos. It's size really is impressive. Please rate and comment!
Awesome! I wish I had enough bricks to build that. My brick count is so low, to make a tank I had to cannibalize another tank for treads and wheels! (also I have barely any bricks of the same color...) (=[
That could have reached the perfection if the legs were longer, but I'm sure you can quickly fix this little detail ;) Otherwise, this Tri-Droid is nicely done, using brick hinges for the legs is better than what I did, and you also did a good job on the three cannons! Separatists need MOAR Tri-Droids =D
