Tri-droid

Post by Bly on Wed Jul 30, 2008 8:02 pm

Finally, pictures of my finished Tri-Droid! It's still assembled so you can criticize till your hearts content. Razz



Tri-droids were huge spider-like behemoths, used by the CIS on worlds such as Mygeeto and Christophsis. They each had three missile launchers, powerful enough to take out armoured republic transports and walkers, such as UT-AT.

Overall, it's 30 studs tall, making it taller than 7662 MTT and 4481 Hailfire Droid:



Picture of Tri-droid compared to a clone:






I think this is my best MOC yet and it's my only MOC based on a vehicle from a movie. Hope you like it! Yellow

I really don't have any complaints except the head is a little too small I think. I wish Lego would release that! Fordo Yo!

Thanks for the comments so far guys! I'm thinking of making the head brickbuilt (but still blue) but I don't know if my mum will let me order parts. Surprised

The scaling looks flawless, and yes the Tri-Droid fighter is perfect for making this guy! The above shot at first glance looked almost EXACTLY like a Tri-Droid Shocked

I didn't even notice the 'eyes'! Thanks for pointing that out DP, they look great! I would've maybe thrown a 1x1 bley round brick ontop though.

I'd flip the blue parts around like this. It would then have the "spurs" on the legs.

In CG pogram? No. With regular bricks, build it. Then take pictures as you slowly take it apart then revise the order of the photos.

No digital camera (which is why you guys rarely see my MOCs) so that might be a bit problematic. And expensive. Laughing

Draw the bricks. I needed a list of bricks I need of BL and I don't like using the Wanted list thing so I drew them. If you don't want to, email me and I will.

The only negative thing I can say of this is the transparent dome, which is pretty explainable because its pretty much the only purist way to keep it up to scale. Good work!
