I built this back in march, but I am quite lazy when it comes to taking pictures, so it was just sitting on a shelf gathering dust. Although I did modify a couple of thing some weeks ago.
I have been excited for the new mini ball-joints ever since I first found out about them. I can say that they are really useful for small mechas. In my opinion they are much better than the "T-joints" that a lot of mecha builders used/use.
Close-ups of the head:
Here is the right arm. I cannot take credit fore the hand design since it is one I saw on a different mecha some years ago on Brickshelf, but I can't seem to find it. Although the hands cannot hold anything they still fit the model nicely, and they are perfect for ball-joints. On the shoulder you can see the only non-LEGO® part on this model, a BrickArms® minigun(I just wanted this for added coolness).
As seen on the picture below the arm is double jointed, and it works great.
Here is the right leg. I decided not to use ball-joints
on the knees because of stability issues.
The knee can bend 90 degrees.
and 180 degrees:
Here is the backpack:
The thrusters are ball-jointed:
Look! The Grizzly wants to show us something.
It's Deadpool (because why not)
Here you can see how the minifig fits inside:
And now it is time for some poses.
Look! It can stand on its hands.
It can even stand on one hand!
Until next time, here is a WIP picture of my current project.
At first glance i thought, "well, this is an oddly proportioned bot... With legs like that I doubt it even has knees..." But then I scrolled down and found out it has an excellent knee! The pilot was also a big surprise, considering the size of it!
