Transform between a jet and a articulated robot, made from parts from set 31021 Furry Creatures .
About this creation
I was looking forward to getting set 31021: Furry
Creatures since last year because the boxart itself showed incredible amount
of parts that will be useful for my MOC. All those slopes and woah... it doesn't
dissapoint! I opened the set last week and quickly built through each official
model on a daily basis. I just want to dismantle it and harvest the
parts and quickly MOC it!
So I finally did about few days ago, and boy this MOC here is one of the
quickest build ever (2 days) because the parts are simply so accomodating
and naturally "flowed" into the MOC I had in mind as I spent my quality time
I started with low expectations: Just a non-transformable mech and that's it.
This is because I noticed the ball joint offered by the set doesn't seem to be
adequate enough. There are 2 of those double-balled joints fitting for the LEGO
cat and dog (quadrapedal animals) . Typically my LEGO TF (bipedal) requires one
of those for pelvic-joint, and 2 more balljoints for the shoulders. Ah well,
time to improvise! As I progresses, the idea of making this MOC
transformable came naturally ,as it involves already implemented articulations.
Another challenge is making do with all those 1x2 plates from set 31021.
They're everywhere (I would've preferred longer plates though) .
And finally.... I can't seem to find round 1x1 semitransparent plates usually
meant for the eyes . And 99% of the colors from this set are white, grey
and black parts, not suitable to be used as robot eyes . Luckily there are 2
special colored part (pink) from the whole lot which makes a good
Articulation-wise, this MOC is a bit rigid compared tp my previous ones.
Although there are some technic bricks with holes, but no technic pins around.
So I can't make the head rotates.
^ A look at the underside.
With dual pitch-black tinted cockpits, Shadow Wing is one of the most
mysterious character in Transformers universe. It's unknown whether he's an
Autobot or Decepticon. With ambiguous color scheme of black and white, he prefer
to be both, depending on his mood. But the rule of thumb is... he's plain evil
in jet mode .... with a knack of showing off his firepower towards anything in
his in sight, even the 'Cons. In robot mode, due to his design flaw causing his
faceplate to turn pink (In human terminology: shyness) .... one can safely
presume he's a safe ,kind and endearing bot to be around with.
All that is known about him is, he's virtually indestructible .
Multiple cannon blast on him will bring down temporarily, but he will always
comes back and reconfigured his broken self into one whole again. And when
he gets truly angry and mad, he partsform into his beast form, either a cat or a
