2009 Ogre Mech - Original (Space Skulls) LDD
The previously listed Ogre Mech in my gallery should actually be called the Demon Mech, but I uploaded the newer design images by mistake.
About this creation


































































The Ogre Mech was my first real attempt to do a mech design for the Space Skulls theme on Lego.com. The original model was a solid body type and featured no cockpit or pilot. I adapted this model to feature a rear mounted pilot, who would literally "ride" the mech like a horse. Not really liking the way this looked, I completely redesigned the chest area to create an area large enough for a pilot. Then creating a hinge for the skull chest detail - turning it into a cockpit hatch.

The weapons also went through several incarnations till I got a combination I liked. They are still amongst the best weapons I've developed from scratch without basing them partly on another model.

Quoting Mike C Really nice design, I really like the hands on this mech it's very functional. Nice build
Thanks, one of the real surprises for me was how expressive the hands wound up being, I'd only ever made a "suggestion" of a hand before as my other mech designs had been on a much smaller scale. I could have just cheated and use the robot arm piece (like they do in some Exo force sets) but decided against it because I wanted that black over red look throughout. I'd probably change the arm and leg joints now to give it more range of movement, but other than this the results are much much better than I could have hoped.
