Gaiking - Japanese Super Robot
Another favourite a Giant Robot Japanamation from my youth!
About this creation
My First Japanese Super Robot, One of my childhood favourites - GAIKING! I am very happy with this build - I was inspired to build my own Gaiking Lego Super Robot after seeing a Gaiking MOC by Schfio Factory (Schneider Cheung) as seen in last years Brick Journal Issue 15 (June 2011). I did not get around to designing and building this bad boy till recently but I will certainly be building more Japanese Super Robots in the future! The head design is a modified version of the design which I usually use for my Optimus Primes. The model's three stages combine to form Gaiking just like the original cartoon. When assembled the mighty super robot Gaiking is fully poseable and quite meaty and sturdy. Pls rate comment and enjoy! Did I mention I really had a lot of fun building him!

I too as a child with meager brick supply made many attempts. not so successful.
Quoting matt one As a child I saw on tv the complete series. Gaiking was one of my favorites along with Gundam. Already at that time I was trying to build some super robots with my few bricks, unsuccessfully ..... Your Gaiking is a dream! Your Gaiking is great!

Totally beat me to it! I've been thinking about making big robot dudes out of basic bricks, just like this. Modern build with old granddad pieces. Really nice work!

Quoting Chris Phipson Ok... not only is this COOL, but it begs me to humbly request a future project from you... I have one word. Voltron. (you know you want to...) ~ CHris.

nothing at the moment, the one I remember seeing must be one of the ones you already had removed. The only TFs there at the moment (of any quality) are Alan Yapp designs and came from him direct (I'm aware of him from Brickshelf so I'm 99% sure they aren't swipes this time).

Another one - no one who has posted pics of my formers on Cuusoo has had my permission I shut three guys down already. Who is it now?
Quoting andros tempest I am finding cuusoo to be a little bit frustrating. I love the concept that an original design idea might one day become an official set, but the suggestions for clearly copyrighted material to be made into official sets, seems like so much wishful thinking. (I noticed someone had put some of your transformer designs on there, I hope they had permission first.) What Lego have said though is that unless an idea gets enough support, they will probably not pursue it, but if it does they will. So if enough Lego fans wanted Gaiking to be made, Lego would be obliged to investigate whether they might legally obtain permission to produce it. Trouble is, I don't see Matel sharing rights any time soon (unless they have since sold or lost those rights). But yeah, just because a design gets enough ratings, isn't a guarantee it will become an official set. the other thing that is annoying me about cuusoo, is that it is supposed to be exclusive for ADULT builders, but anyone with half a brain can tell 90% of the people on there are under 16. So almost all the people voting and posting stuff shouldn't be there to begin with. Didn't really think that one through if you ask me.

for anyone not familiar with the origins of the concept, here is a link to the wikipedia entry. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaiking "a Japanese Super Robot mecha anime series produced by Toei Animation. It ran from April 1976 through January 1977 and consisted of 44 26-minute episodes. Gaiking was notable for being one of the few super robot series to take place in real places outside of Japan, and for being the first Super Robot series to have a mobile carrier for the chief robots. In the USA, Gaiking was part of Mattel's popular Shogun Warriors import toy line of the late 1970s and Jim Terry's Force Five anthology series. In 2005, a remake titled "Gaiking: Legend of Daiku-Maryu" was produced. In 2009, William Winckler Productions produced three all new English dubbed movie versions edited from the original series. Producer William Winckler, known for Tekkaman the Space Knight, wrote, produced and directed the English films, which are seen on broadband in Japan. On March 28, 2010, a Live-Action Movie based on the series, simply entitled, Gaiking, was announced at the 2010 Tokyo Animation Fair. An international production will be helmed by American filmmakers, Jules Urbach and Matthew Gratzner. Gaiking is being prepped for a 2012 world-wide release."

Not a fan of the CUUSOO thing yet - I cannot see how they can guarantee a set will get made if there are enough votes - ie there are legal and licensing hurtles and possibly years of negotiation before your set could get made if its of a licensed theme.
Quoting Stuart Lucas Not familiar with the source material but this is a seriously awesome robot. Re: the comment below about mass producing these, have you ever considered putting one of your creations on CUUSOO? I bet one of your Soundwaves would get up to 10,000 votes in no time.

like most of my stuff - duplicating is not really cost effective for me or the masses.
Quoting Keith Johansen You can't possibly comprehend how much I love you right now, Chris. Gaiking is my FAVORITE. Absolute FAVORITE. Any chance of mass producing and selling these? Please? Please? O _ O

u missed something LOL! the dragon head mates female bottom to male studs on the inside of the back look closely to the video you will see the 1x2 tiles with the studs in the middle. Which secure it tightly in place! cheers!
Quoting Wheeljack 8824 He looks great! Although, it would have been nice for the midsection to have actually locked in, instead of just sliding in and using friction (unless I missed something).

The mech factory stuff will get custom colours and pilots once i get thru some standard mechs! Glad u like this Japanamation giant: Gaiking!
Quoting Seth G Wow, at first, I thought that this was a mech factory moc. I was thinking that you made sorta a different culture mech. Like giving a unique spin to your mechs and getting to see how the styles vary in the different cultures of the world of mechs! Saying this, it would be cool to see some unique further mech creations,( I know right now your doing the basic ones so far) but that would really make future mechs really eye popping. My reveiw: Ok this guy is awesome, at first I was like,"come on, seriously?" and then I saw the entire thing and with me not even ever hearing about this show(I was a 1998 boy) it was AWESOME! I love how you make these robot/mechs soo smooth and sleek. Keep up the great work! ~5eth G

Quoting Daiman Mardon I remember these guys as the Shogun Warriors back in the seventies when a friend of mine was lucky enough to have one. http://www.wildtoys.com/Shogun/index.asp Also came across http://screenrant.com/gaiking-shogun-warriors-matthew-gratzner-trailer-tmal-59556/ This is a very finished moc and resembles a toy so much that I almost need one on my shelf. How about doing the whole team and rally making me jealous.

Quoting Rockcrawler 247 Hey Chris, while I've never seen this guy it is a pretty good Moc. Is there a Voltron Moc in your future somewhere? The loins or the vehicle mode? I think you would do a Really good vehicle mode Voltron. Anyway 5 stars as usual Chris.

Quoting Brody Allen Very cool. I love the sculpted breastplate and his shin design. My only very minimal critique is that I would like to see if the horns could be created out of bricks to be bulkier and in sections to be more in line with the actual.
