Basic "T" Joint Skeleton / Frame for Miniformers and Mechs
use this skeleton as a base to build mini legoformers and mechs
About this creation
I've been pretty busy latey with that thing called life but here is just a quick little MOC with instructions (as everyone has been asking) of the basic "T" joint skeleton I use for my miniformers, so now you too can build mini transformers or mechs. The frame / skeleton is very poseable and articulated. Pls feel free to download the LDD file and use the design as long as you give a link back to me or this page.

Updates. I am currenlty putting the finishing touches on the very large fans's choice 2012 build - Omega Supreme, a Macross Valkeryie and my V2 Movie Optimus Prime model as well as I am doing my first commissioned model for a very anxious collector. So hopefully some really large full scale MOCs are coming very soon to wow you. For now happy building!

Quoting Chris Roach you more or less used my superhero design not this one - so yes please credit me - since they do look quite similar
*sigh* okay. Thanks though.

Quoting Bumblebee 5253 Hmm, mines a lot different, I should try poseable feet. Should I still credit you every one I make? (I only used the idea, I never used the LDD file).

Very nice! I'm not really Mech person yet, but I do know where to look if I ever need inspiration, with credit, of course! It's shame about the plagiarisms, though. That really does annoy me, even if I am not involved.

that's the third plagiarist issue I've had - all home schooled kids - I guess plagiarism is not in the curriculum :)
Quoting andros tempest I see the link has since been deleted. I caught part of the conversation you had with him, I don't know if I believe what he was saying about being home schooled and English not being his first language. But it certainly adds more weight to my first assumption that he is younger than 18.

I strongly suspected you might when I read his first post in reply to the question, is this REALLY yours ":/ Well, I could say yes... hehehe ". Nothing angers me more than kids claiming that just because they built something that they came up with the design, when clearly they copied it. I think people have been trying to steer him towards understanding the difference between his idea and his design, but that comment he posted about comparing it to minecraft just proved to me he doesn't have a clue what plagiarism means. If I could find which specific design of yours he based it on I'd have reported it before coming to you, but I'm still struggling to find evidence to support my report. I've got serious doubts he's old enough to be posting projects anyway, if a question like "is this your creation, yes or no?" is too difficult for him to grasp.

yes he does sound too young to be posting! This will be the second or third post I have had to request removed - last one had my actual pics!

The reason that I asked is because I sometimes go on mocpages on my ipad and when I click on "building instructions" it asks me if I want to open it in notebility. I was confused because on a desktop on lego.com it says it is only availiable for desktops, so I didn't know if it would work if I clicked on it on my ipad.

that parts and what mods required are up to you, but this frame will work for my Prime - the seekers and soundwave minis. Megs is his own former but the legs are the same as this skeleton!
Quoting Alan Fletcher So if this is the main frame of the mini legoformers, then how do you adjust the joints to make the figure transform into whatever you want it to?

A thousand thank yous for putting instructions on this. It helped me to make my own transformer that is a triple changer.

The chassis on display, lol, this will be handy if I ever try a Mech again!
  January 29, 2012
thanks for sharing this, I think the arms may be a tad long as hands should rest just below the pelvic bone when relaxed to the sides. The wide foot is pure G1 Transformers. Might have to have a go at making something from this - credit will follow if I do. It's slightly more basic than my usual frames, but the important thing is how you dress it and this has tonnes of options.

its a little harder to standardize a large frame legoformer since I do not build my larger formers using a frame - a medium size mech frame might be a good project for the future!

Hi Chris. Excellent, and a very useful post. I love how you did the lower leg and feet. I have just built my first 'skeleton' using these joints, it is bigger than this but uses similar principles. Not sure what to make from it yet. I can't believe how posable they are.
