Kogeru
About this creation
Ladies and gents, this is Kogeru.

Iím afraid the mech doesnít picture that well, IMO, and so Iím afraid youíre going to have to take my word for it that it looks better in person.

This mech borrows somewhat from the frame priciples developed by Marcus Clancy and Eric Sophie, so kudos to them!

Kogeru is meant as a soldier type mech. Small enough for city work, heavy enough to take out most of what it runs into. The fins on the back are meant to be a folding kind of propultion device for the purposes of jumping or short flight. Strictly sci-fi, I have no idea how such a thing would supposed to work. Thatís the beauty of sci-fi though, ainít it? Something about technology resembling magic and being sufficently advanced? :)

   Folks, this is Kogeru. Kogeru is the Japanese word for burn, be scorched.

   The sig pic is now at the top of the list. Keep up this kind of action and people will suspect me as tech savvy.

   Kogeru has a number of joints. Most of which are borrowed from Marcus Clancy's and Eric Sophies ZX frames. The joint is really strong.

   Little better shot of the head. Covering up those joints. That was the tricky part. It's part of what make's Kogeru so beefy looking. Mmmmmmmm, beeefy.



Enlarge image
   Starting to play with the joints, did I mention they were strong. Even with the reverse knee, I can get Kogeru all over the place.



Enlarge image
   Like walking poses. There's so much weight on the body and arms Kogeru cannot stand on one leg. However, take off some of the armor and he can. It's cool.



Enlarge image
   Side shot, I should note. While I did use frame elements to make Kogeru, he is not based on a frame. I used the joint tech, not the frame.



Enlarge image
   I can't get him up on one foot but I can get darn close. One foot and toes. Part of the trick of this is to get the body OVER the one foot you want to be standing on. That means pivoting the hip over the desired foot. There's your articulation lesson for the day.

   Here on one foot and toe. Just enough support for the mech to stay standing.



Enlarge image
   Another funky pose. I was trying to make it look like the arm lasers were shooting at something. Shoulda positioned the arm better. But still, neat pose.



Enlarge image
   Fun shot. I got a good paradox going with color here too. People like it yet it's been described as "funky." Truth of the matter, I wanted it to be yellow, and I used a color wheel to find a good match. It only helps that I love Dk Red. I'd make a whole mech in that if I could.



Enlarge image
   Kogeru looks really good in these pics but I got people fooled. They either think it's really really big or really small. It's about 7" tall.



Enlarge image
   Did I mention it's got a cockpit?

   Head/chest swings up.

   Control panel swings down

   Pilot hiddden inside. See the fig for scale, not that big is it?



Enlarge image
   I went for the Japanese name because I was thinking of a lot of the Japanese builders while working on Kogeru. Moko, Ziz2y, Squieu, Sugegasa these guys are gods. If you hadn't checked them out, stop now, got to Brickshelf and look them up. NOW. Anyway the specific name was chosen in my usuall method. I heard a name in my head and then looked it up. I know half a smattering of Japanese, I used Webster's Japanese/English Dicionary to get the definition.



Enlarge image
   The fins were new for me. I was thinking of some kind of propultion similar to that which is found in the movie "Chronicles of Riddick." No idea how they work, but cool none the less.

   Head shot.



Enlarge image
   I had fun with the fins because they can be down...



Enlarge image
   Or up. More posablility.
This is another fun mech to play with. Will somone please alert Todd Lehmann? He'd probably like to know there's another mech out there you can play with.

   Big bad and yellow. Thanks for looking.

Nice work it is far better than any Mech that I have created, but there is hardly as many comments and ratings as it deserves.

The color scheme on this would best be described as "ketchup and mustard". Which is fine by be because I like hot dogs. Having said that I would like to mention a few other things I like: droid head fingers-brilliant, head-marvelous, funky poseability-rad. Overall I would like to give Mr. Neumann a "two thumbs up" for this awesome creation.

Wow. Great colors, great design, and the mysterious fins are somewhat of a rarity in lego mechs. While it may not be that big, playability is always a plus. And it looks like it could handle itself pretty well. Nice touch on using the droid heads for fingers ;)
