Rogue Bantha) pens a love letter to one single new part released by the LEGO® Group this year.
Before this wonderful piece came out, it would have been impossible to keep the angle of the legs and keep the scale. I am always looking for interesting ways to move away from right angles as it can really bring a model to life, be it a robot, an animal or a spaceship wing and TLG continues to offer us exciting new ways to do that with this new part.
In other parts information, this is the first time I have used the dot firing gun (Mini Shooter With Ø3.2 Shaft, Design ID 15391) in a MOC, they serve as very nice legs with a good connection although the feet did fire off across the room a couple of times during building.
The whole thing is attached to a stand using a minifig hand pushed into the hole on a good old fire hose nozzle (Nozzle W/Ø3.18, Shaft, Design ID 60849) this allows it to be displayed in a dynamic pose. Don't push the hand in too far or it might crack the nozzle!... not a legal connection.
I enjoyed the colour pallet and design of my little mech so much I ended up build a warrior family to go with him.
