Crazed because of my obsession with Starcraft, hardsuits, and technic figures, I spent several nights concocting a buff-looking hardsuit specifically for LEGO's old Technic figures. After mish-mashing several hardsuit design details with my own chassis built around the Technic head, this is the result. Credits to the EGG by kwi-chang on Brickshelf for his hand design, wintermute's Ono-Sendai on Brickshelf for the legs, and Spook's Hreddek and Vostov on Brickshelf for the arms.
Why a meteor piece for the head covering? It was the only dome piece in my collection that matched with my predestined color scheme. Plus, it looks a little Maschinen Krieger at that. Just imagine that all those little craters are actually portholes...
Darn the head covering attachment! I couldn't think of any other way to attach it to the hardsuit.
I can't help but love the collar tubing. It was the first part of the hardsuit I made and it reminds me so much of the collar of the hardsuits in Starcraft, just like I was hoping for. Like when you see Jimmy or Duke's profiles and their heads are just peeping out of their buff armored collars... Yeah, I kinda like that. A lot.
The jetpack on the back is actually a jump-pack. I guess the suit's too heavy and uncoordinated for flight, so it can only jump with the aid of it's little jump-pack. Since taking this pic, I changed the pack to have two verticle tanks instead of one horizontal one.
Thank you, wintermute, for movable legs!
Size comparison with a Technic fig. I think my hardsuit is in fair proportions and could fit a Technic fig... If it could. Also note the new rifle I made for my Technic fig.
The hardsuit with a clear dome just to demonstrate that it CAN fit the head. Plus, it looks sorta cool, being able to see the head. However, this covering or the following gold covering would not be canon with this hardsuit's universe that I quickly made up and the only availible covering would be the porthole/meteor covering seen above. Yeah, I'm a total nerd. The dude on the right is a riot officer, complete with shield.
Technic fig with a different helmet, radio, and the hardsuit with a golden dome covering. Kinda spacey.
A de-domed hardsuit and some guerilla/special forces fighter.
I couldn't help but make some profile/avatar-like images of the hardsuit pilots in their suits. I like the collar tubing too much. Now this one would be Jim Raynor...
