LTC Elite Guard Samuron Combiner: Medix V1.1
I'm gonna be honest here; Medix is possinbly the least interesting out of the seven transformers for the elite guard. I simply built this as a team filler. Although it's a great figure, it lacks all the complexity. So, I thought I'd make up for that with the articulation. This creation is largely based off chris roach's t-joint mecha frame. Now you may be woundering how I was able to do this. After all, he never gave out instructions. Well, here's the secret. I reverse engineered it by hand. Yep. I've got an LDD file tucked away on my computer of this frame that I made all by myself. And yes, I will be posting instructions for this eventually. Chris did say that I probably shouldn't, as he wished to sell these frames. Well, here's why. I only based the feet and arms on the t-joint frame. The rest is completely original. So, I can kinda get away with it (I hope). Because of this, it has a large amount of articulation. I'll state all the points in the description. Also, click the link below to check out the T-frame for yourself. Trust me, it'll give you some great inspiration for your mecha MOCs. Well, at least until the mini ball joints for the mixels come out (and I hope they use those in later sets as well). BTW, one more thing. If you're not a fan of doctor who, then skip the introduction. You'll see why if you are a fan...
About this creation
Make sure to check out Chris Roachís Ultra-Articulated T-Joint frame by clicking HERE! Part of this MOC uses some elements from this (the feet and the arms). There are two reasons I didnít completely use this frame. The first is originality. Iíd be practically ripping off Roach if I were to do that, and that would mean I canít post instructions for him. The second reason is the transformation. While the T-frame works well for mecha, it doesnít always allow transformable elements in the MOC. So, thatís all I used. Now, WHY ARE YOU STILL READING THIS! CLICK HERE ALREADY!

Declan: Well, hello there. Welcome to yet another awesome MOC. Well, this one isn't as awesome as the last one, but it does the trick.


Declan: As you can see, I now have possession of the saxophone element from the minifigures. As a saxophonist myself, I've been waiting for this for a long time. I was hoping for them to do this years before the minifigure was announced.


Declan: Well, they finally did it! And it's rather authentic too! Sure, it's simplified, but it still containts most of the keys where they are supposed to be. All in all, a great part!


Declan: Well, I'm going busking. I've finally learnt the Chick Corea Tune, Spain, and I'm gonna make myself some cash for lego!
???: With who's saxophone?


Declan: With mine.
Jazz Musician: OH, so it's YOUR saxophone now. According to who?
Declan: Me! I bought you.
Jazz Musician: And you think that gives you power over me?
Declan: Yes, yes I do...


Declan: Now, on to busking! Goodbye, blues brother!
Jazz Musician: Hey! Just because I have a dark suit, a fedora and massive sideburns does not mean I'm one of the blues brothers.
Declan: I guess not, but it could make you me.
Jazz Musician: What?
Declan: I have a jazz hat, just like you. It has a smaller rim, though. Now, BUSKING!
Jazz Musician: Wait! Come back!


Jazz Musician: Well, I don't know where he's gone. I suppose I'll do this for him. I'll have to say his catchphrase. Well guys, happy building, I guess...

These pictures actually have nothing to do with the MOC itself. I simply thought that it would be a good idea to show you these. At the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corperation), they are currently (at the time of typing this) holding a mini-exhibition of the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. I thought I'd show you some of the stuff I saw there.


We have an awesome classic dalek here. It's really cool to see these up close.


Sometimes I wish one of these would appear in front of me and I could go off to other planets. Then again, most of the recent series have bittersweet endings (especially with Rose and Donna). So, maybe not...


The 10th doctor was many people's favourite, and they had his official costume. Can't wait for Tennant's return in the 50th...


I never really did like the new cybermen. They look kinda wierd. It's like they've reverted to there previous versions. Oh well, everyone's a critic...


It's me! And the REAL me! Yep, the minifig looks just like me. Anyway, don't make comments related to this photo...


Well, that's that. I may build something for the 50th, but until then I guess it's just 'happy building'. Heh heh, the jazz musician (not me, the series 11 guy) could never say it as good...

Okay, now we continue onto the actual MOC. I didn't make it like the Sledgehammer version in two ways. The first is the toy jet. I'd prefer it that he's a proper jet. The second (which may change) is the tool rack. I haven't built that yet, but I do intend to. Perhaps in a day or two it'll show up, just like the Hypax Armour...


The jet mode works, but it's very simple. The transformation is a tad simplistic as well. Sometimes this isn't a bad thing. Complex transformers tend to fall apart (with the exception of Spectre, of corse). A simple guy is necessary from time to time...


The hand and weapon simply fold into the back. They can't be concealed, but who cares. :P


The close up. Nothing much here.


I'm going to switch of for a while. The transformation (strangely enough) bears a striking resemblance to jetfire's. That transformation was also simple, and like this one it works really well.
































Here we have Medix in his robot mode! I wanted to make him a bit of a quirky robot, rather than someone epic like Stormrider. After all, he was originally a 'toy jet'.


From the back, you can see that I took the 'exhaust idea' from Sledgehammer's version. He had a blue exhaust that became the bottom of the robot. In my version, it simply folds into the back.


It would fold all the way, but the nose cone is stopping that.


There's a few things to mention about this picture. The first is his weapon. It's more of a medical tool but I like how I built the spiraling effect. The second is the articulation. He has twenty points of it, including-
  • The feet move up and down.

  • The feet also rotate.

  • The knees bend.

  • The legs will rotate in and out.

  • The legs will swivel in and out.

  • The legs will bend at the waist up and down.

  • The hip moves slightly from side to side (not rotation).

  • The shoulders move in and out.

  • The shoulders rotate up and down.

  • The arms move up and down on a seperate axis to the shoulder

  • The left arm bends at the elbow.

  • The fingers on the left hand move.



Well, that's it for the MOC. Don't forget to like comment and add me as a favourite builder if you haven't already. Doing this lets me know that people appreciate what I do, so don't be lazy and move on. I'll also be posting the 'failed classic lego attempt of optimus prime' tonight as well...

Quoting Harry Gravett Nice little storyline at the start! And great work on the model :)
You mean the mini comic? I should do that more often...

Quoting C West Wow! That looks cool! Oh and by the way, I have updated by homepage and am now under the username: Calux Lord Of The Flames! Because my page hasn't been updated in almost 2 years.
Cool! However, there's a guy on MOCpages called 'callan lord of fire'. Sounds a bit close, if you ask me (no offence).

Quoting Chris - The SledgeHammer Great Job! As for the tool rack - I just built those to hold all of medix's potential weapons, then just made it possible for them to clip onto Samuron's back so they wouldn't just be sitting behind him in the LDD file. It's really meant to be like all of those weapons are built into Medix's body somehow. None-the-less nice job with this one!
Thanks. I'm going to do two things, though. The first is make a second version (I'm kinda stuck between V1.2 or just plain V2 for the name). This version has twin 'doctor octopus' style arms that clip onto his back and fold into his chest. The second thing is redesign sideflip. As good a transformer he is, he's got certain parts that cannot be ordered on pickabrick. So, I'll remake him with a better body. But until then, I'm going offline. I'm staying at my aunts for the night, so no net access until then.
