Ladies and gents, come closer and behold the incredible (probably) Martian Walker !
Well, not too close anyways or you might get zapped into oblivion.
About this creation
Legend has it that I wake up from my dark ages every 3-4 year and build a MOC to see if I still got the hang of it.
I'll let you guys be the judges of that :)
All jokes aside, this is the result of a pretty fun building session (roughly between 3-4 hours on this I think ?). Suddenly had a Lego building itch to scratch !
It started out with some random parts being assembled, and then took the direction of a War-of-the-Worlds-like walker.
I had the rear legs figured out but hit a wall when trying to wrap my head around the front legs. I wanted them to contrast heavily with the back legs and be more sturdy and bulky but it just wasn't working out.
I finally went for skinny legs and was 1000% convinced this walker would NEVER stand up on his own with such fragile articulations and such weight in the center ... and boy was I surprised to be wrong ! It just need to stand on a rough surface (like a carpet or some fabric), otherwise the legs would just slip and spread outwards, crashing the whole thing.
