Granite Grinder (Remake)
About this creation
Demolished...

A MOCtley Crew group
Category: 8. Redesign a Classic Lego Set.
Link to the MOCathalon

Set: 4940 Granite Grinder


A simple but important improvement, lights, an underground vehicle needs lights.


The feet can be slightly fixed via the robot arms (which are in the typical color that was introduced within the Rock Raiders theme.


The trusters also make their comeback but this time they're located lower, I had a hard time giving this baby some decent balance.


Some rough edges... but appropriate for this theme/vehicle I think.













I decided to keep the iconic elements from the original set (the drill, cockpit-assemby, etc) but I also included some less obvious elements such as Bionicle parts.

Somehow it looks a bit strange, but also very interesting :) The legs of this version are probably better than in the original version, because they are usable on uneven terrain.

Lovely mech you've got here, Sebeus. I had this set as a child and you've really re made it well. I really like the legs as well as the drill area. The use of technic pieces is neat and its cool to see how nicely they blend with the system pieces you used as well. Great build!

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist The placement of that drill is... um... yeah. And it's called the granite grinder? I'm at a loss for words here... Awesome mech, despite my immaturity!
Where's the faceplant emoticon when you need it :P Thanks

I can't decide if this re-make looks better than the original. It fits the re-design category well but you haven't sold it to me. 3 points. ~Thoy

There aren't enough Neo-Rock Raiders MOCs out there. I like this one's style.

Cool legs. I wish we could see them in action. It's a good set, but I'm concerned about balance - it looks a bit top-heavy. And I'm not sure how playable those complicated-looking legs are. 3 points.

Quoting Rinse Jan Yeah, Go Rock Raiders! I almost have got a complete collection of the series (and of course the overplayed cdrom game) at home. I must admit I always had a crush on the Granite Grinder over the rest, i don't know why (moveable legs?), but this makes the set 'rock' ever more! Well played mate! I'm sold... Oh and: GO STUDley crew!
Thanks, I only had the grinder and the small minifigure set but I wouldn't hesitate to buy the rest whenever I get the chance :)

Great rework! I especially like the legs; they look very industrial and tough.
