About this creation


I have always wanted to build the Iron Giant but I only recently had the part resources I needed. The Giant is 47" tall and weighs about 60 lbs.



The hardest part of the design was making a frame in the arms and legs that would hold the entire body up. He has such skinny joints in the legs arms and hips that there was very little room for technic beam elements.



It was interesting/challenging making all of the differently shaped panels that cover the Giant. I built a loose skeleton model to build up all the panels, then I took them all off and built up a strong interior frame.









I rebuilt his neck several times to give it a good angle.





This is one of my favorite movies and it was a really fun design and build project.

Great job! You really did a perfect job on this MOC. I wonder if you could make a version of him when he's blowing up the city (his "gun" mode). And the kids saying, "you no gun" (or however he said it).

I was truly dumbfounded for a few seconds viewing this MOC. I must say, you have really captured one of my favorite movie characters with incredible accuracy, and for that you are one of my MOC heroes. I can almost hear him say "No following..."

OMG I'm so happy that somebody finally built the giant and to epic and such detailed proportions :D this was and still is one of my all time favourite films which is so under appreciated and underrated :( Anyway your build is just brilliant, amazing techniques and skill espically around those joint parts, that must have been tricky, I am so envious of your building skill man you are super super amazing!!!
