Well, The Munch has been at it again. She has gotten rather casually involved in trading MOCs with David Alexander Smith’s daughter. David’s daughter saw The Munch’s recent robots and answered with Wheelie and Walkie, a couple MOCs that I loved and to which The Munch said, “Cool!” She is a girl of few words. Wheelie and Walkie motivated her to build a little more.
On a personal note, this is one of the reasons that I love this site and this community as much as I do. Where else could a child from the US and a child from the UK be able to connect like this on such a creative level?
This is The Munch’s latest creations. This is a robotic spider and a table. The small pieces around the table are what she refers to as, “replacement parts.” The fact that she gave that some thought puts a little smile on Dad’s face. Let’s have a look, shall we?
I helped out a bit with the photo editing, but she chose the colors for the background. I asked her if she wanted a color for the background, and she said, "No, Daddy, I want it to be colorFUL." I am not one to argue.
The little mechanical looking pieces coming off the top of the spider are the spider's eyes.
And the table. She experimented with some connections on this. The tiles are all held together with 1X2 trans-clear plates.
Wait a minute. Munch likes Lego AND spiders? Way too cool a girl you got there Tim. ;) Love the arms on top of the spider, looks like it could help in those tight areas on your micro builds. Super cool!
Just shown this to my daughter and she's really impressed, she asked me if it was from Doctor Who, which it well could be. I think she may be inspired back to the bricks. From my side, this looks great, you can tell her from me she's got talent. Not only is it nicely built, it's an unusual and intriguing concept.
A super spider. At first I thought that it had had an accident and that the arms on the floor had fallen off. It's great to know that the spider has some spare parts in case it gets damaged on its adventures. I can just imagine it running across the floor with tis arms waving. The table is very clever. I like how from some angles it looks as though the top is just on tile thick: very neat!
