White Orange
White Orange - fully articulated micro-mech based on some Japanese experiments.
About this creation
This is the most advanced little mech I've built to date - but I can't take all the credit for the articulation; this is based on some of these incredible garakuta experiments. Using a couple of the photos, I managed to build this mech over several days after finally collecting enough of the specific parts required (thank Lego for X-Pods and the Fenris Wolf set!)

(The name comes from one of the colours metal goes through when superheated... ;) After more than a month sitting in my display cabinet, I finally took some pics and found the time to post them up...

22 August 2006 The T-piece tube part is a Technic Pneumatic T-piece (part no. 4696) - you get 10 of them in the Fenris Wolf set (7015). It's a great little parts kit which also includes 10 minfig mechanical arms (part no. 30377) which this model also uses. I picked up 7 of these kits just for these parts alone and will probably grab a few more - they're not moving quickly off the shelf of my local department store - all the more mech articulation parts for me! =)

   Leg detail. Featuring upper thighs that twist and part, a proper knee cap/patella, and an ankle joint that only moves within the range required (both twisting and rolling just like a human ankle.) The articulation on this is really quite neat; mad props and maximum respect to the orignal designer.)

   Sweet angle, the hero shot; pumped and ready for action...

   Detail of left arm. The upper arm only twists as far as your own does - did I mention how neat the articulation on this is?



Enlarge image
   Detail of the head. The creative license on this frame is largely in the colour scheme, head and upper limb armor. I was going to do the arms in white tiles, but decided on the curved forms of the hot orange dishes and vicious spikes.

So there ya go. Please let me know what you think in your reviews. I'm always looking for more of these crazy creations because I thoroughly enjoy trying to build them!

Stay tuned in the next week or so for another mech based on izzo's awesome recent work, the wearable fig-on-armor-mecha!

Most, most enjoyable! Perhaps you won't take credit for the articulation but the limbs and body detailing all flow together very nicely and the choice of colours is a good one. Not sure about the head, it could stand to be a bit more interesting but maybe it will grow on me. Don't like the ears though, but I do like everything else. Best of all, thanks for that great tip on the Fenris wolf set, makes it worth a five just for that tip!
