As far as I know, I am the only person who creates Zoids on the minifigure scale. There is more where this came from.I was watching Chaotic Century when I made this. That's why the liger has energy blades. The hidden twin cannons on top worked out of mostly pure luck. All of my models have the ability to stand on their own. I hate models that have to be held up with supports. I havent come up with a name for it yet so, I welcome your advice.
About this creation
I started by making the head first, cause if I don't, everything will become out of proportion. It worked out so perfectly that I thought about just leaving it unbiult.The head took me one whole night to complete.
Now, you can sort of see from the top what I used to make this. The two bionicle upper body pieces make up the shoulder joints. That big tapered red curved plate on top(which is covering the hidden twin cannons) was actually from a lego city speedboat set that I bought at Target the previous day. It only stayed a speedboat for about 3 minutes. The bottom part of that set is the base plate of this model as well.
The hidden twin cannons are a crutial feature to this set. This is a perfect example of how combining technic parts with bricks opens a new world of possibilities. if you were to take a fleeting glance at this model, you would have never guessed that the whole top part opens up to reveal more weaponry.
Those cannon parts are from the original Star Wars Hoth fighter set(which means they're very old). The cool thing about this part is that you do not have to latch anything to keep it in place. The cover has a snug fit which keeps it closed. The only downfall to these cannons is that in order to shoot straight, they have to aim over the liger's fan-like head peice. But Its still good for flying zoids.
The tail is made of small arm parts from lego hero factory covered by one of those plastic tubes they use to protect electrical wires. I confess it is not a lego piece, but I still use it as one.
Now for the blades. One of the signature weapons of the liger.The joints are made from those bending parts with the noched joints.
The white plates are from the original jedi star fighter set and the special vent parts are from some old mega blocks set. The blades attach to the body on one of those wall peices with the technic holes in them. I also attached a pair of wheel rims(which are supposed to be gears)using this as well.
The blades come off which allows for customization of the blades themselves or, for an entirely different fighting style, missiles can be installed for long range attack. Now it's time to prepare for battle. GO LIGER!!!!!!
i was never a big fan of the ligers, so im a bit biased against whenever they are involved. it is definitely one of the better ligers on here, but alas, falls short of phongs liger and lego zeros....liger zero. but phongs is small scale and legos is not purist i believe, which i think makes it by default the best minifig scale on here.
