Wind Waker Walker
A cartoony, fun mecha.
About this creation

This is an interesting model. I originally built it to experiment with the basis of the torso region. Most wheels have six holes in them perfectly adjusted for three parts that attach by two pegs. I remembered that a specific Technic/Bionicle piece would allow me to make a triskelion of sorts, so I did. It gives a very nice result.






After that I had to figure out what to do with the triskellion, so I naturally used it as the shoulders of a mech (originally the hips). After I built the arms (heavily inspired by the robots of Kazuya Tsurumaki's FLCL (Furi Kuri: フリクリ), whose robots I have always inspired for their broad, flat, expressive hands) and the characters of Corey Lewis (for the same reasons)), I figured out that I couldn't add a proper head and cockpit without the mech looking stupid. so I made it look stupid. I mimicked the cartoony look of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker by adding tiny, stubby legs, a "basket on a spring" cockpit, and a big, expressive face right in the centre of the whole thing. It's the ugliest, stupidest mech I've ever built and I love it.







It's also probably the most expressive -if difficult to balance- model I've built in a long time.



Model includes: general figure, pilot.

I think this is a good wireframe for other creations you could make. All you have to do is build off of that design and you could make another cool looking figure. Nice design dude.

Your design of the hands is one of my favorite features, and the large size of the forearms lends this MOC a gorilla-like look, which works really well. The color scheme work surprisingly well, too. I don't know what to say about the minifig's position, though. I neither like it nor dislike it. Good work.
