Gundam RX-77 Valkerion
Hello! Been a while since I posted a mecha, so why not now? This is a creation I have had built for almost a year now, so Im finally posting it. Credit goes to Mythril Altaire for a majority of the design. Hope y'all like it!
About this creation
image

So, as I mentioned above, this creation is based off of one of Mythril Altaire's many amazing mecha, which I have attempted to post a link to.

image

I studied the LDD file and took mainly the upper torso and pelvis designs, the head, and the feet. I scrapped the legs and arms to add my own designs to them, and I think it worked out quite well.

image

This was the first time I had ever "studied" someone else's design, and thus came to realize my own philosophies I use when I build my own Mocs. The most fundamental of these was "posability without fragility". Basically, if I build a mecha, or even a bionicle creation, I will expect it to be:
-able to stand on its own and support its own weight
- relatively if not completely posable
- aesthetically pleasing

image

Mythril's design seemed more geared toward posability with no real intention of having the model removed from its stand. This is fine and good, but I wanted something with a little more playability and support.

image

Needless to say, the design is overall, an amazing work of Lego art, and I learned and have used many of these designs on all of my present mecha Mocs.

image

I actually made a brick link order specifically to aquire the grey wedge peices you see here to recreate the torso.

Quoting Makuta's Descendant - How in the world do you make one of those Giant robot-mech suits of death?! They're so awesome (even though I haven't seen Gundam or know anything about it).
Thank you for the comment! I cannot recommend which shows to watch, since I have not seen them all, but I do know they are adding episodes to YouTube weekly of the newest show, Reconquista in G. I think that's what it's called. All giant mechas are awesome though! Check out zoids too if you're interested!

Quoting Travis warlaumont Hey dude you know what would be cool, get together enough people start a RP war group for mechs, Pick a base frame and let people have their imaginations go wild, have a upgrade system and everything
Thank you for the comment! Although that idea sounds like fun, my time for mocing is very limited due to school and other such things. As far as mech frames go, I am just replicating designs by people such as Mythril Altiare and Chris Roach. They are definitely better experts at mechs than I am, although I appreciate the praise. I will think about it....

Excellent work,I have yet to try to build a mech the way another builder does. I think it would be extremely challenging, as well as, an exercise in frustration! I commend you for your efforts. I have to say that I have the same criteria for all of my mechs.

This looks pretty awesome! I can definitely see Mr Altaire's influence, especially in the head design. Great color scheme, as well.
