About this creation
This is my entry to the 2013 MOC Olympics against my opponent, nik ramage


The human cyborg: Think of this as another "Lego wear" category. Your job is to build an extension of the human body, turning yourself into a Lego/human cyborg. You can go as little or as big as you'd like. Anything from just a glove/arm extension, to a helmet to an entire body prosthesis (if you have the time). What sort of upgrades would you give yourself?

This contest has been a lot of first and new experiences, and this entry is no different. I'm normally accustomed to building to minifig scale, so when I saw the category was something wearable, I was a little perplexed. (sorry for all the questions Chris!) Overall I had a blast building it, I got to work with one of my favorite colors, purple, which was quite a bit a fun. Coincidentally I had stopped by my local lego store and picked up 70+ purple tiles and I wouldn't have been able to do with without them.

Everything is wearable with exclusively with LEGO, but for the sake of the photos, I did use some fishing line to insure that it stayed on my shoulder, (and the only reason for that is because it broke earlier while trying it on and I wanted to ensure that it didn't while I was photographing it).

My goal was to an create armor that covered the major joints in a persons arm. The theory behind it is that it would be used to create a "super solider." Each section amplifies different features and has difference characteristics. The pauldron is where most of the neural stimulants would be connected, as well as the place were information from the other two sections would be processed and sent to the brain. The elbow piece would increase physical strength and speed in the near by muscles. Finally, the wrist guard is focussed on minor weaponry and increase dexterity, including an automatic targeting system. The weakest part would be the wires connecting each of the parts, but they would be reinforced to minimize damage and also be very easy to replace and repair. The whole idea would be to increase the natural abilities and response times of a solider and make them the best they can be. It could also theoretically restore motor skills to those that have been injured. Unfotuneately it is not meant to replace an arm, just strengthen an existing one.





this is all three pieces on, it stayed pretty comfortably, but like I mentioned earlier, I did use fishing line to hold the pauldron inlace so it didn't fall off again while I was photographing it.



This was held on by friction, tension, and balanced, it wasn't the most secure, but it worked wonderfully regardless.



this is held on by plate with a hinge clip (not sure of the technical name) wrapped around my arm.



I built this around my wrist, and it fit quite snuggly.









the is a manual targeting system, similar to the sites used on a hunting bow. They were included incase damage to the wiring is sustained during combat,



These are the rockets that appeared on the inside of the the wrist, they're hard to see in the other pictures.



these are two machine tunes on the outside of the wrist.

That's a lot of text and pictures, and if you've made it this far, thank you!
(and even if you haven't, and you stopped by for a moment, you'll miss this, but thank you for stoping by anyways!)

Great job, in style and construction. It's never quite as satisfying to get a free pass onto the next round but well done anyway!

Yup, free pass for you! An interesting build you've got here too. Purple is not an overly common color, so it's fun to see it used so plentifully and effectively here!

Cool! Love the idea of joint amplifiers for a soldier. Just makes perfect sense. And the fact that you used purple is always a win in my book! Excellent job! I'd wish you luck, but nik was a no show. Round 4 for you, congrats!
