Beast Wars Inferno
This is it. This is why I have been inactive. I have started building LEGOformers. Obviously, I have been inspired by Chris Roach's work, but this is from a long time ago. Long before I was on MOC pages, and even before I had LEGO, I was given an old toy from a cousin, and that old toy was Beast Wars Inferno, or most of him anyway. You may be asking, "was your name inspired by this transformer?" NO, it wasn't, my name was inspired by Dr. Inferno, this is a pure coincidence, and I only recently discovered that it was a real transformer, I always assumed that it was a cheap ripoff.
About this creation



Here's a close-up of the chest/upper arm/head


The lower leg


The lower arm/upper leg


If you remove the arm, you can see an extra limb for beast mode


Here is the weapon based on the toy


But if you move the jaws back, it looks like a crossbow

Onto the transformation sequence. Being a beast wars, its not very complicated.


First, we open this back pannel


Then, we fold the head/chest section back


Here is what it looks like from the front


Next, we spread out the limbs like this, due to instability


WE fold the abdomen down, and fold all the panels in


Next, we pull out the arms, and drop the beast mode limb down


And do the same with the back legs


Then we fold out the extra limbs. These dont do much for stability, but ants have 6 limbs, so...


Finally, the weapon is inserted into the head, giving the completed beast mode.

I must say, after all the work that went into this, I can see why less people do Beast wars. They are fiddly, breakable, and have poor transformation sequences, but I like how he turned out. I wasn't planning on an LDD, but due to difficulty finding parts, I designed half of it in LDD, so I uploaded it anyway.
