Liokaiser is the combiner from 7 breastforce members from Japanese Transformers series.
About this creation
This project started last December and progress were averaging at one bot
per month. After 7 months of gruelling yet challenging efforts, Liokaiser is
finally done. However , back then (end of June) ... I was given a chance to
showcase my LEGO transformers at a local store , so Liokaiser was whisked
there for a month (video link below).
After a month , he was put in storage as
I was busy with another LEGO TF project. I'd guess I better put a closure to
this now .So there
>> As a LEGO combiner of this size, (more than 1.5 feet tall)... he is top
heavy, so he can't be posed in more elaborate manner. Too much stress were
imposed on the hinges . :|
>> Due to complexity of individual bot , merging them to form Liokaiser
caused a few weak points in connections. I'm forced to apply extra
scaffoldings in a few areas to reinforce these connections, so that posing
him about would not topple him over .
>> Yes, it's SEVEN breastforce members I mentioned just now. In the original
cartoon, Deathcobra was the 7th member of Breastforce (forming the arm) but
was killed early in the show. So here, I decided to pay homage to this
character by having him as a helicopter that transforms/separates into
components for the combiner: Hands, head and a gun/weapon

This might just be the best combiner I have ever seen! Each individual bot on it's own is fantastic! Combined mode is unbelievably brilliant! I can't believe how well they fit together and how proportional it looks! The engineering is simply amazing! You sir, are a genius!
