About this creation

Ok, finally getting around to catching up on some posting. I had a Zoids phase a little while ago; some of you may have already seen these on Flickr, if so, ignore this.

These guys proved much more trickier to build than I thought. I didn't try to acheive the level of detail of the real Zoids toys; I was finding I was running out of slopes and technic bricks all the time, so these versions are a little simpler. Also I didn't stress about trying to squeeze a minifig into a cockpit but merely give the impression of one. Laziness rules. Still, there's no denying they were fun to make: what's cooler than a Lego robot T-Rex covered in gunz? Nothing, that's what! I'm really finding as I'm building these that I enjoy creating stuff in a toy-like style: simple joints, bold bright colours, etc. Could it be after three years I'm finally getting my own style???


First up: the Kill-us-all-rus! This took ages to make (for me anyway: about two whole weeks!) and by the end I was just sick of looking at it. It's ok but I had something much cooler in mind...








Code name 'Bludgeon' Ankylosaurus type
This guy gets the most air-time cuz I wuv him and he was a joy to make! A special thanks to Arthur Gugick for providing all that black cheese for the armour plating. The legs are simple and unjointed, just like a cheap toy.












Buffalo Type heavy assault
Something missing with this one. The body looks too undefined for some reason. Started off in a Predacons colour scheme (which I love) but couldn't make it work, ending up with this.








'Cheetor' Recon type
Arthur also sent me a truckload of orange parts, which was cool cuz I think I only had about seven orange pieces prior. I started off with a curved back but relying on hinge bricks made the spine too clumsy, so he got a rigid spinal upgrade.


At first the skinny legs looked funny, so I tried bulking them up a bit with more orange but it stated looking slow and heavy so I kept them anorexic to give him that lightweight, sprinter fell. Check out the purple variant, thanks to a bit of photoshopping.









MERRY CHRISTMOCS TO ALL!
Be good kiddies, or Santa will bring you Bionicle instead!
Just kidding Yuri ;)

I hadn't realised you built Zoids; these are brilliant... almost as good as your spaceships.

arg! zoids! welcome to the club of zoids builders, and yes, its members are in the single digits. the guns have a great zoid-y feel to them, especially the K-rex. and to point out my zoids-based nerdiness, im going to point out the resemblances to real zoids! the first one looks like a cross between gojulas-giga cannon and a geno breaker. ankylosaur was a bit tricky, but it looks like elaphander and cannon tortoise BC with just a splish-splash of cannonry molga. buffalo looks very similar to dibison and its upgraded form gravity bison. and the cheetor just looks like a stripped down lightning saix. believe it or not, that was all from memory. ::sigh:: fear my lack of life.

Haha, I remember when this show was epic. It was my favorite. It died fast for me, mainly because we got rid of our cable for about 2 years.

These are really quite excellent. The Kill-us-all-rus was too darn funny! These brought back memories of my 80's childhood.

VERY nicely done! I love how you captured the "cheap 80's toy" look. These mocs take me back. AW, memories!

I'd have to say Liger-Zero is still the coolest Zoid of them all.

Awesome :D i like the purple cheetor :) Anyways these are pretty cool, but I'm kind of disappointed you didn't wake it with the ability to have a mini fig actually pilot it, but then it would be HUGE!

Excellent builds! I never had zoids, but they were definitely appealing. Too many little pieces for my parents to agree to them though. :(

These are great! I have to say I still miss Zoids every now and again. (especially whenever I find a Zoid piece mixed in with an old LEGO bin)

Ok, I actually saw Cody G's raptor looking Zoid before this one because of your comment. Amazing! This really takes me back! The 80's were the best with the half-hour toy commercials that passed for cartoons! I've been tossing around the idea of doing M.A.S.K. or GoBots. Great work Mr. Ocean and MOCy Festivus!~H

you always use the "could it be... i'm finally getting my own style" line. which is odd to me as i find i can usually tell when a moc thumbnail or whatever is yours... ZOIDS RULE! Nice work.

Great colours, especially the last. I think it's a more serious version of Legos short-lived Robo Force theme.

Cheetor is the only one I really like. But... WOW, it's awesome! Maybe because of the sleek figure, or because he didn't fall victim of the Form/Function balance, or even 'cause I used stick legs a couple of times myself... Well, what counts is that I love it.
