"Spring" transform between a futuristic mech and a robot. Made using parts from set 31007 Power Mech
About this creation
When set 31007 was launched earlier this year, some Transformers fans quickly
relate it to Springer, a
triple changer from Transformers G1 cartoon series. I can see why, with the
green color, the 2 matching alternate modes besides the mech mode (helicopter
(By the way, I made a LEGO Springer few years ago:link
So as a fan of Creator, I bought one, played around with it, and then MOC it
to become "Spring", a fictional Transformer that merely transform into one
In the very beginning, I combined this set (31007) withCity
Cement Mixer (61008) andSuper
Racer 31002), and attempt to
make one hell of a LEGO Transformer. From this combination, even with a bigger
palette of parts to choose from, I failed. Then I put them aside for few months.
Only recently when I decided to isolate those 3 sets ... I kinda "got my
groove" back and the rest is history. I guess the adage LESS IS MORE
works pretty well here. I seemed to be more focused on the parts restrictions ,
yet knows how to use them optimally for this petite MOC of mine.
I'm kinda proud with this MOC because it's built using parts fom on official
set (and not an expensive set that is), its a land based vehicle / non-jet
(tyres are a form of challenge when it comes to building LEGO-formers), and it
took me about 3-4 days to complete the design!
Special mention: The back tyres doesn't make use of the one-piece axle part, so
the part ends up as the front bumper.
