. . . version 2 of my Droideka Destroyer Droid. my moc is built to a standardised model that allows other variants - the SNIPER, the GRAPPLE and the MARK II to built to the same scale (see my other mocs) it folds and forms a ball too . . .

This is without a doubt the best Lego Droideka that I have seen. It blows the competition out of the water. I was so impressed that I built one of my own at home and it looks great, both in play and in display.

Now this is pretty epic. Excellent job; this looks much better then what LEGO came up with.

Quoting Musical Droid You have to remove the central arm piece and rotate it to transform it - that's what I meant by "take it apart". The new leg's joints are stronger, but this means you have to use more force to move them, making it easier to pull the clips holding them to the base of. So it is easier to damage and feels more delicate. Both models are perfectly stable enough. The new model is better for display and a brilliant design, but you couldn't give it to a child to play with, and it just isn't the all rounder the old one was. The old one, on the other hand, is the best design I have ever seen - I made two of them!
fair-enough and thanks for taking the time to comment in such depth. the old design was specifically made just to see if i could build the Droideka to a genuine mini-fig scale & then get it to convert to rolling mode. it worked well, i was very happy with it & i'm glad you like it so much. i only started work on this new one after trying to build the Sniper Droideka - having to build a shield that functioned as a separate structure, not a supporting part of the framework, meant i got closer to the 'actual' construction of the Droid. its obviously aimed at display (i guess most minifigs and UCS end up on display nowadays anyway) but i still 'play' with mine . . . : )

Quoting Musical Droid Looks like a backward step to me - you have to take it apart to transform it, and it's much more fragile than the old one. I suppose it might be better for display though.
actually, you don't have to take it apart at all - you just rotate the central section, then fold and slide the arms. and it feels more robust too - more solid legs, better balance etc. main advantage though is that it functions as the 'base' for all 3 other Droideka's . . . same basic structure, with adaptations, gives you the Sniper, the Grapple and the Mark III.

Quoting A. Metzger sorry, its me again. do you have 3 more exoforce robot arms? i was wondering if you could replace the droid arms (you used for legs) with the exoforce ones with a silver spike at the end. just a thought. Happy building! :D
hi - & thanks for the suggestion. it works pretty well. i've used pearl light-gray exoforce arms with tiny 'horns' or spikes. i'll add picks soon. you see LEGO just released pics of their latest Droidekas? (set no's.75000/75002). . . some improvements but imo they still look really bad.

to add a bit about that brown "head". after looking at a pic of a droideka, i think the brown stud would look better on your moc. the reason why is look at how long the legs are on the real pic, and look how small they look on your moc. if you can make the legs a tad bit longer it may look better with the head. Other than that i love it! Good job!! :D

Brilliant! When I was younger I used to make these all the time, but never made one as good as this.

Quoting Scoma !!! Excellant! One thing, if you don't mind constructive critisism, the brown head stud on the bottom- I'm not diggin it, that might just be me, but I almost feel like it would look better without it, ot just a brown circly stud instead. But, aside from that, AMAZING!
. . . thankyou for the comment. i DO see what you mean about the 'head' but its a trade-off between accuracy and scale. on the 'real thing' that ball is quite big and, although i haven't tried it, i think a 'circly stud' might be a bit too small. i might give it a try though. cheers

Quoting MCLegoboy ! I know that they are all varients, but the classic Droideka is the best and my favorite for me.
. . . my favourite is the Sniper!

This is crazy good! I agree with Scoma, just put a brown circle stud on the bottom instead the the head piece.
