Although my timing is odd, considering I only recently posted my first brickbuilt samus, I've revised the original to be more accurate and poseable.
About this creation
The first problem I had to address was the shoulders. I used a rod and some clips to make the arms and shoulders independent. The result was even better than I'd expected: The arms can be set at almost ninety degrees from the shoulders!
The hand was a special touch I came up with while pondering how I could create statuary from the Prime series. It can only fit three fingers, though.
Unfortunately, the model isn't as stable as I'd like it to be. If only I had more of those robot claw pieces in orange...
Here's how it looks from the back. If it wasn't for the pole that's holding the arms on, I would've used binoculars for the space jump jets.
The great thing about this design is how easily I can mod it to resemble various power suits, like the light suit, the dark suit, and the PED suit, for example.
Please rate and comment!
EDIT: First MOC of mine featured on the main page! WOOOHOOO!
EDIT: I have made some slight alterations to the arms and legs, although I have not posted them yet.
EDIT(2/5/12): Let me start by saying that no, I am not dead, just busy (also, watching lots of anime). You see, I'm kind of in the middle of my junior year and I'm trying to get an IB diploma, so I don't always remember to check in here. Secondly, V3--and possibly "final" since I can't seem to find a way to improve beyond it--is on the way. Just being a little picky about the background of the photo for once.
Problem is, I've been planning to make a purchase on BL for a while, but there are several parts I'd like to order and I'd prefer to place only one order; there's no one who has all the pieces I need. (also I'm tight on cash, it's not a very big priority, ya know!)
