Build from 2002. Inspired by the Anime Series Zoids: New Century Zero
About this creation
This was my first epic mecha build. I mean sure I built plenty of "mechs" but sheesh. I saw Klaupacious Gundam's stuff and I went gaga to make my own massive mecha. I went with Zoids as my searches for Lego Zoids in 2002 turned up with nothing. I've seen some cool ones since, but I want to return to this and give the 2 on the shelf their request to finish them.
I had some of the Zoids plastic toys when I was a kid but there was nothing as impressive as this. A brilliant bit of sculpture in Lego. I really like the mouth and the feet, plus the way that the proportions are just right. Excellent!

If this is how good you were in 2002, I can't wait to see how good you are in 2012. Brilliant stuff.
Thank you Joker. I have some builds and demos lined up later this year. I still have 2 other Zoids in boxes that have been begging to surface for many years now. I think it's about time to give them their patient request. They are just as massive but have far more and better articulation than the Blade Liger X. they got shelved years ago because I blasted out a lot of brick element sculptures and maxifigs. Thanks for visiting the Blade Liger X

so big...and on minifig scale? O_O This quite scares me...pretty cool....I bet it was hard to build!...Buuuut,like always,i love it! :D
Thanks Marcel. It drove me batty to engineer many aspects on this one. The first big challenge was making sure the paws would hold the legs steady and then making sure the legs did not collapse under the weight of the torso and hind quarters. The first few tries resulted in much diss-assembly and re-engineering!
