LDD G1 Starscream
My first complete LDD design in the form of a G1 Starscream.
About this creation


I've been tinkering around with LDD the past couple days since I haven't had the ambition to take apart my Lego sets. The result of the first design I followed through on was this recreation of the G1 Starscream. He's based off the Robots in Disguise figure who resides on my desk. In the process I've learned how challending LDD designs can be. For instance, there is no action button or way to differentiate assemblies that slide once they attach and the project is saved. So to get the pictures in both modes I had to 'attach' the legs, take the pic, reload the project without saving and do it again. All the joints are posable and the head turns slightly. They way I built him he should transform without having to remove anything except for the null-ray cannons. The action figure/toy/whatever you want to call it had 'wheels' under the feet in jet mode, along with 'wheels' that fold from the side of the chest. I figured on something like this, that would be silly so they weren't incorporated. There are some other differences as well. This hopefully won't be my last LDD project and one of these days I break my sets and get my fingers dirty with bricks.



Back view of robot mode.



Angled side view. Will he stand? I honestly don't know. He should as he looks balanced and has proper foot support. The only issue I can foresee is the sliding lower legs... There are flat, smooth top pieces inside the lower legs to add more pressure/friction to prevent unwanted movement. You can also see below the knees looks somewhat messed up. That's because of the landing gear...



Closer view of the torso region. Yes, I know the hands aren't much to look at.



Angled aerial view of the top in jet mode.



Front view in jet mode. You can see the open chest cavity where the back half of the cockpit goes in robot mode.



Back view as a jet.



Jet view from above. You can see some of the things I added, being movable horizontal and vertical stabilizers.



Jet bottom view.



Angled view from underneath the jet.



I added a view with the rear landing gear extended. No, there isn't any front gear. Trust me, I tried. There's only a 2*3*2 region under the cockpit available. If I ever do figure it out I think I'll actually buy the design, with the wife's premission of course. LOL I checked the price and it's not cheap.

Quoting David Britt Awesome work!
Thanks. I did try to create something like him with Yellowjacket but, I didn't have the right color or specific types of bricks though.

Quoting ThunderT0D :) That's a preety awesome Starscream!!! So it does transform, and does it quite nicely! great job!
Thank you. In theory, yes he should transform rather easily. I want to actually build him but, I would have to do some modifications since I don't have some of the bricks I used in LDD.

Quoting Seth Higgins Nice! I like the jet mode the best!
I'm inclined to agree, but looking closer at the jet mode I have found that there's a few things that need to be tweaked.
