IT'S DONE! Hell this was my hardest work. (for some odd reason my models are getting bigger and bigger o.O) Anyways here it is! The RX-110 Gabthley from the anime Zeta Gundam.
About the mobile armor part...I think it's buildable...but I won't be the one to do that. XDD
Please rate it and comment! I'm very curious!
About this creation
The RX-110 Gabthley is a prototype Mobile Suit
Incredible manueverability is achieved trough the large amaount of thrusters all over the body.
I know...the head looks big, that's why I built a smaller scale head as well(it's in the LDD file as well)but I think this one looks better with it xd
It has a very mean look
managed to build the 3 thrusters into the arm...it was a pain in the !%+/
I intended to build this as a transformable suit, but I had to realize it's impossible..for me that is xd
the shoulders were really hard, but i think i found the right shape
Exo force ball joint in use
This part was also strange, I searched everywhere in LDD to find a good sphereis shape, but i couldn't...then I had the idea...why not use train wheels? :D
pic of the chest area, It could have been better in my opinion
It took a while to figure out how to shape the legs to make it working
the tubes are missing, couldn't put them on with LDD
feyadeen rifle, long range...total destruction
beam saber active (pics got bugged xd)
Group shots: Gabthley and it's companion Hizacks...pretty soon they'll find some hostiles for target practice
a shot of my recolored Rick Dias (mass production colors)
Hope You guys enjoyed it! don't forget to rate and comment! xd
Well, I have a lot of free time at the moment. btw this isn't the only Gabthley model made from lego, there are two other (that I know of) on brickshelf, 1 made from total bionicle and technic parts (it can even transform!) and 1 made by Izzo himself! But that one is in white colors and has a totally different build(smaller in scale than this),it's more like a Gabthley look alike than an actual Gabthley (it's named Pseudogabthley)
Thanks for the great comment! After this MOC I think I'm ready to start the Sazabi. I think the most difficult parts were the shoulders and arms. I built about 3 different shoulders before I got the right shape, than i had to put in 3 thrusters in the arms... I had a lot of fun building this as well as frustration, but I learned a lot from it.
First off, I think that this may be the ONLY lego Gabthley in existence. So, kudos to you for trying something new. Secondly, just as a mecha, on its own merits, this is one spectacular build, from top to bottom. The shapes, the innovative building techniques, the colors the details, everything on this is eye catching and well executed. As a model of a Gabthley, its even more spectacular. You've captured so many difficult design elements with this, such as the thrusters and the shoulder joints. Truly a great job on this. In response to your question about the Strike Freedom, yes, it is very poseable. It can do nearly every pose that an MG Strike Freedom model can do except for around the waist joint (it can rotate horizontally, but nothing else). Poseability is a huge must-have in my models for the most part, even though posing them is near impossible in LDD.
