yeah, it did help. I have also been thinking about this technique before but the pics were very helpful to understand how to create and use the hinges in practice. Thank you a lot!

Quoting Manuel K (aka Dragooonie) Thanks for the answer, sorry for my very late one. This time I'm interested in the hinges that you use... I've tried to build a quadruped animal-mecha-like thing which you can also find on my page. But I noticed that it's hard to make a real robust constuction with the hinges I have - your mechas are even bigger and also look very solid. Which parts do you recommend?
Pardon the late reply! I have been building a lot of Lego! I use technic parts to create joints using worm gearsas well as bionicle ball joints. These hold the weight of the creation. http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=29109 , take a look at the hips and knees. Also, look at the Blue Bear Frame Tech Gallery: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=213214 , Let me know if that helps!

great job, eric! I love zoid-type mecha. I'm curious as to what kind of joints you used to hold that much weight.

Quoting Manuel K wow again... did you also build that blue guy in the background of the last pic? Sorry, of course this is amazing, but I think you know that anyway ;)
Thanks! Yes I did build the big blue robot. It is called the Jamocklaquat. http://www.lego.com/eng/info/default.asp?page=pressdetail&contentid=769&countrycode=2057&yearcode=2003&oldXML=true&archive=true More on Brickshelf.com.

Quoting Sebeus I those animal mechs of yours are awesome, thisone has a very nice cockpit/head, great job
Thanks! I really like making them. I actually JUST started taking a part Din Din after all these years. I need the parts, and it is looking pretty beat up these days, so down it goes: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=3693193

Quoting Ryan Lemstra one other thing. you should add some weapons.
Glad you like! One thing though, I never add weapons to my creations, they are all non violent exploration vehicles.

Quoting Creat1v1ty . Awesome, I love how its name is similar of the famous german shepard Rin Tin Tin. Digging the color scheme and everything. Amazing notheless, keep it up.
I built this way back in 2002, and in all these years, no one has ever connected the two! Bravo! You got it!

Quoting Matt S. I've always had a soft spot in my heart for giant mechs, love it! It looks like the interior is detailed too, is it? Either way awesome job.
Yay! giant Mecha Yay!

This was the first quad I made in the shape of an animal. The only thing I would have liked to do is to have made the tail a little more flexible.
