31074 - Mech




Alt #3 for 31074 -  Mech
My Ninth entry in the April 2018 competition  ;)

 - Moving legs, with hips and knees.
 - Moving arms with elbows and shoulders that can rotate in two directions, for realistic range of motion.
  *  Left arm sports a large cannon - Megatron style.
  *  Right arm features two moving fingers that can flex and open (close-up in bricksafe)
  *  The shoulders are a weak spot (see close-up to see how I used part 85940), however, it is quite enough for grown-up play, and the movements of the arms are nice and smooth.
 - Opening cockpit, minifig scale, although not all helmets will fit (no starwars helmets, nor batcowl).
  * Holographic projectors on both sides of pilot's head.
  * Holographic controls beneath arms.
  * The positioning of the chair was one great reason to build this thing at all :)

The model is posable and playable. However, it does require careful handling - the hips and have too much give, and the wheels that serve as feet roll so you have to be gentle.

In my Free Castle monograph I lamented the loss of joy in some of the builds. I take it back. This was great fun to build and I enjoyed designing (and redesigning) it very much. I hope you do too!

My 6-year-old tested my PDF instructions after I did, so that's double-tested :)
