This mech transforms and is a revamp of the original Lego Ninjago fire dragon with a twist. It is my entry to the 2018 mech contest too. I built this because I wanted to build a transforming dragon mech, and wanted to use the dragon head and sail pieces from my old ninjago sets. Also, I used to really like Lego Ninjago, but fell out of it as the series went on, and on. So that's how this was conjured! Sorry for the bad picture quality.
About this creation
We'll start with a back view of the cape.
And move to a side profile.
Now the heroic front view of the mech with Kai the fire ninja piloting it. It has two golden swords and posable fingers, which is a first for any of my mocs.
A final shot of mech mode...
Here, the model begins its transformation sequence. The cape spreads to form wings, the dragon head swivels around, the swords become the tail, and the claws fold out.
And now, for the dragon mode! I really like how this turned out!
An overhead shot, with Kai riding in the "saddle."
And a rear/side view, showing off the tail and hind legs.
Well that's all for today. I know this was kind of a less wordy post, but the pictures say more than my words. Although this moc is quite chunky, I like how I was able to incorporate the transforming function. If you have any questions, feel free to comment below. Thanks for checking this out, please comment, rate, and check out my page for some other mocs! Also on an unrelated topic, expect my self moc version 1 to be posted in a while. I'm still tweaking it and waiting for some bricklink parts to arrive, so it's not done yet, but it'll hopefully be my next big post!
