Jumpsuit
my entry for double-david space camp. I like the idea of a suit that fits a variety of jobs, and breaks down to create utilities, that is the main model. the alternate models are a small workshop, and a helicopter with a strange plant. it was fun to make this stuff.
About this creation






alternate model 1. (above)
a small workshop.



alternate model 2. (above)
the space man collects anomalous plant samples.



total piece count is 86, by my count. I count each seperate minifigure hand as a part, if arms plus hands are counted as one piece, that would make the piece count ... 80?



the suit, and the plant with the sampling device are my favorite parts of this stuff.

EDIT: turns out the grey 2 x 2 grey plate is unneeded, if you're looking to build the suit, you don't need that piece.

I saw this when it was actually posted, and forgot to comment then, so I will do so now. The much is great! The pack fits in very nicely with it. While it fits the classic space theme in some ways, it also refers greatly to modern Lego sets. The much looks very poseable, and as far as fragility goes, I understand how it is with all those joints and connections, I've messed with those before. This almost convinces me to go get a classic spaceman :3

Quoting David Roberts I can easily imagine this mech stomping along making all sorts noises. The feet look very stable and the hands look great for moving cargo or examining space rocks. A neat cockpit too. 9 I like the way that youve made the hands in the main build. The second alternative is my favourite, with the space-copter and the strange tree. The workshop is a very original idea but I think it would have been great if you could have used the wheels to make a vehicle of some sort. 6 Lots of adventures and exploring could be done in this suit, from loading heavy stuff to rescuing members for the Outer Reach Research Team from monsters. The legs look solid for balancing the MOC on but I think that the way that the arms and legs attach would be a bit fragile for young kids to play with. I realise that its hard to get the poseabilty with stronger hinges but I think that this is what this part of the competition requires. 5 This would have fitted so well into the CS range, if only there had been all the parts around at the time. I like the colours that youve used. CS models were generally very symmetrical but I think that the subtle asymmetries in the colours on the MOC push the CS look along nicely. The red wheels add interest, without being distracting. 9 Total score:29
Quoting David Alexander Smith Design: This hard suit looks really tough, and believable in the sense that there seems enough bulk in the arms to equate to lifting loads. The odd alternate colours make me think of a well-used machine with replaced/repaired parts. 8 Piece Selection: Two good solid alternatives, but lacking some of the panache of the main model. 7 Playability: The problem with the hard suit builds is that whilst looking playable could in fact turn out to be a little tricky to balance, pose and use. 7 CS Factor: This is CS if it had been used on some distant planetoid for several years. A sort of scavenged and recycled CS style for a theme past its prime. I like it. 8
I realized later on that I actually hadn't posed the suit in any way. and yes, I'd say it's fragile. but I wouldn't say more fragile than anything else made from lego that's detailed. and on the subject of vehicles, the reason I didn't really go with strictly vehicles is because I didn't really grow up with that. I might make a post on that soon. it's pretty interesting what a kid is gonna actually do with parts.

thanks.

Quoting Locutus 666 Its not a true classic space, more a neo classic but it looks awesome. I like it! Good luck in the contest!
I don't really expect to win anything, I realize most of it looks very different from what classic space is. that said, david smith invited me to do this, and I'm quite sure he knows what I would enter wouldn't be 100 percent classic space. pretty sure he just wanted to see my take on it.

Quoting Tim C Well, that is just excellent. I love how bulky the suit looks, and great parts usage with the fig arms for fingers. Looks the part. Nice job on the alternative builds as well.
Quoting Ben Andrews magnificent. havent been on for a few days and to come on and seethis piece of brillance brought a huge smile to my dial! oh... and the use of those classic red tireless wheels flooded me with memories!!!! thank you!
thanks, guys.

thanks everyone. just woke up, really cool to see that you guys like it.
Quoting Gale Winthrope Aaaannnddd. Kaput. I was going to try and enter, even had an idea and had started building yesterday, but after seeing this? I'm out. No way I stood a chance before, but now, my chances are shot to heck. Absolutely beautiful work. Just beautiful. :)
you should do it.
Quoting andros tempest Lol, great minds think alike eh, two mech/hard suits already. Great idea and nice use of the spare parts to make the workshop, clever. BUT, isn't ripping the arms off minifigs to make the hands an illegal technique? I'll leave it up to the judges but I'm fairly sure that might not be allowed.
david roberts had posted about that in the group conversation, scroll to the bottom. it was just a little confusion. invalid moves are encouraged because classic space encouraged them. I actually went and took a look, and the classic space sets that I saw had quite a few combinations that you'd never see today in a set. really cool.

Looks like a strong entry for the CS contest. For parts count, I use the rule that if it came in the bag from LEGO assembled, it is 1 part. So the minifig torso with arms and hands count as a part. Flex cables that come with the ends already put on count as 1 part.

Quoting Elk Guard Cool! I thought the yellow hand was holding a cup of coffee in the main pic!
my camera isn't really meant for this sort of thing, a lot of stuff ends up smooshed or looks like something else. I'd like to get a camera that's good for small stuff.
