Mecha WIP Updated 20/2!

Post by Tac on Thu Dec 31, 2009 1:47 pm

After seeing Avatar I really wanted to make a hardsuit, it probaly won't be the actual one in Avatar, but it will be similar. I spent about 2 hours this morning mucking around with some pieces until I made a arm I liked. It's fully poseable which was what I was mainly after. Smile

The prototype arm:



The detailed inside.



'Scuse the blurry picture. Wink



The armoured outside, straightened out.



The armoured outside, curled up, note the elbow. Wink


UPDATE 1: Arm And Shoulder!





After toying arond with some connections I finally found one strong enough. Smile

Oh, the editing's just so you can see the angle it will be on the body. Wink

UPDATE: Both Arms And Shoulders.



I tried to make a second arm, but unfortunately I couldn't find enough robot arms/knives to finish the hand. Looks like I need to make a bL order! Wink

Oh, ignore the stand, I just wanted to see how many studs apart they would be. Smile

UPDATE: COLOUR!!1!!11!!!





My BL order came so I decided to make it a bit more clolourful. Wink

UPDATE: Upper Torso, Shoulders And Arms!



The front.



It opens!



Greebles!

UPDATE: Updated torso, added blades and a twin chaingun.

Front view:



Side:



And rear:

I also attempted to make a hardsuit after seeing avatar but it ended up more of a walker. Razz
The arms are very lovely for a prototype. Wink

It may take a while, I want this to be my best MOC so I'm not going to rush anything. Smile

Needs more color. Wink
Looks pretty good. I like the use of the taun taun reigns as tubings and the rest of the elbow joint area is excellent.

Wow, it keeps getting better. But I still think it needs more cow-er color on it.

The shoulders have a good shape Tac, but I think you should add more greebles to the shoulders like the arms, as it makes the shoulders look kind of plain when they're next to each other. Wink Smile

The shoulders are armoured, like the outside of the arm. Wink

I need a head and a helmet for my harduit pilot. I kinda like the moustache head and the hood/binocular helmet.
