Go Samus, Go! . Three months of pure procrastination. . Kay, so gotta go ahead and give my inspiration kudos to two of my favorite builders, Cam M. and F-ZERO's #1 Fanatic ! Cam pretty much owns the Lego hardsuit field, and F-ZERO has really gotten me fired up about Metroid lately with his awesome MOCs. Check these guys out if you haven't already!
Initially, I had wanted to make a little custom Samus minifig, but I couldn't stop there! I tried to make a dio of one of Metroid's infamous self-destruct scenes, but rather than a raging maelstrom of fire 'n brimstone, my makeshift "explosion" came out looking more like a bomb or something, so I just went with that. So yeah, on that note, on the MOC!
We find the galaxy's greatest bounty hunter examining yet ANOTHER space station, when--all of the sudden--a planted explosive detonates in one of the station's corridors. Looks like somebody's after Samus... again...
Samus scrambles for the hatch.
Oh, wait, it's not Dark Samus after all! Looks like somebody's a little sore about his #2 rating...
"Is that the best you got, Boba?"
Custom Samus closeup. Sorry the color scheme is a tad off...
Looks awesome from the front...
...but from the side, not so much...
I slapped together a Zero Suit Samus for a size comparison. Pretty close to scale, I think...
Samus' suit is my own design; the next few pics show the basic template for it. Feel free to borrow the design if you want!
Exploded view; shows all the pieces you need.
Dio without figs.

Boba Fett is chillin' in his little alley...
Behind the confines of "Space."
Backstage Party! Don't worry; they're all friends! :P
As always, thanks for dropping in!
