Quoting Tim C I must say, David, and I know I've said it before, but one of my favorite things about your MOCs is that when they come up on my "New from you favorite builders" section on the homepage, I know immediately who built it. This one gave me a good natured chuckle. He is built so well. I like your elbow technique, very resourceful. I wonder...I know that you're like me in that you find inspiration in a small thing that leads you to the final MOC. I'm wondering if it was the bowtie idea that got you moving on this one. Anyway, the bowtie is brilliant because it's such a small thing yet it pulls the whole idea together. That and his eyes. I don't know if it was intentional, but the eyes give the illusion of big round glasses, creating a kind of "nerdy" appearance when coupled with the bowtie. Almost like a Steve Urkel-bot pining over his little Laura minifig. Great job with the fig as well. Very cartoony-femme-fatale. It's not just your MOCs that impress me, David, but, mostly when you stray from the industrial space theme, the attention to the emotional condition and composition of the whole. It's among the best on this site. Great work, good luck as you most deservedly continue on in the MO, and as always, I can't wait to see what's next.
The composition came from the use of the two wheels for the head; the bow toe just flowed from there. Inspiration came from the film the Iron Giant, mixed with a bit of 50s teen angst.

Quoting Parrington Levens the classic castle chick rules!
Don't be fooled she's viscous.

Quoting David Roberts An even more characterful robot than your last one. I love the way you've done the head/face. The old Technic wheels and small cylinders for the teeth work so well. I like the bow tie too! The way that you've made the girl's dress is simple but clever. Perhaps the robot's knees should bend so that he can get down on one knee and ask for a date?
The knees do bend. I tried a proposal shot but didn't post it as it messed with the bots proportions and looked a bit odd.

Haha, beautiful build. I can relate... in an odd, metal and strangely twisted way... great job though!

Ha Brilliant! Poor old Tin Man, he finally gets a heart and what does he do? Fall in love with the first pretty girl he sees. We have all been there.

Quoting Mike Johnson "Abandon all hope ye' who enter here." Love is fickle thing but I think your tin-can man is looking in the wrong place. Personally, I know a certain blond bomb-shell (hint-hint, hudge-nudge) who's calendar recently opened up and could easily could get his motor running! Once again best of luck against Stuart. Where you two are goin' you're going to NEED it!
Grey is his favourite colour. I'm quite scared by my round 4 topic, so much you can do with it it is almost overwhelming.

He looks pretty spiffy with that bow-tie! Maybe he'd have better luck with the #6 Cylon?

Oh, lovely work David. The head is most definitely my favorite part, but your little story adds the perfect touch of magic to this build. Great dress technique too. Thanks for the smile :)

Poor ol' Charlie. Perhaps he's just looking in the wrong place for love? Well done and a nice little story. :)
