WIP Mecha Updated June 6th

Post by Tac on Mon May 03, 2010 10:55 am

I wanted to build a medium sized mecha and I wanted to take something to STEAM with me. This is pretty much an experiment with: Connections, Studs and stickers. I think it's coming along quite well IMO. Wink

6th of June:



Finished the head, now all I need to do is the body, hopefully a fig' will fit inside it...

3rd of June:



I added some new feet (Still hate them, I think I'll add some better ones at the end), bulked up the thighs and built some arms.

The head's a tablescrap I made over a month ago, but it turned out way too small.

3rd of May:

Made the legs slimmer, they're now a cross between V1 and V2.



3rd of May:

Bulked up the knees and hip joints, now I need to make some bigger feet. Razz



More pictures in the set (Link below).



3rd of May:



Oh, BTW, the black antenna isn't needed, It's just there in case it starts to fall over.



Here's the set if you want to see more views/bigger photos.

Yes, the others were too big, this one's much smaller. Wink

EDIT: Updated with bulkier knees and hip joints. I had originally planned something like this with the dishes, but couldn't find a way to do it, now I have. In other words it was supposed to be chunky/bulky. Wink

The 5th month is May. That is all.

Lol, I like the bulk on the legs. Will this be a humanoid type mech?

I'm the only one who voted... Shocked It looks good so far Tac, but it needs some "big frakkin' guns." Razz

Keep it in a lightweight setup. Put arms on it. If you wanted big guns you would need bigger legs, making it sort of like a juggernaut. I think the ways the legs look it would be one of those swift moving recon mecha.

If your going for a American look by all means keep it bulked up but if you want it to actually look good, well keep it light weight.

Those legs are looking great! But I don't really like that posture. You should have it leaning forward more, I understand though if you can't because of the whole joint thing.

Look's great so far Tac you really are a MOC expert! (Wish I could build like that!)
I think it need's some ''Frakkin guns'' and bigger feet.
Anyway I can't wait to see the update!
Keep up the great work!

Nice job on the gun, I really like it! Is the minifig torso just there for proportion comparison? Wink Smile

It is coming along nice. The gun is okay. It looks like a giant ak-74u. Fitting the minifig torso into the mecha torso would look cool, I think Phima suggested that on flickr.

The head does look alot better. It also looks like you are in the final stretch. You may actually complete this WIP. Razz

I am excited to see what you do for the torso.

May I suggest a teal or blue photosensor on the head and gun? IMO it would fit better than the dark red. Wink

Thank you for making the gun bigger, that's all I really was upset about, the rest is great.
