The Iron Giant has been years in the making. I love the movie and enjoyed the original book (it’s rather strange). One day about two years ago, I started sketching the Iron Giant during class. I realized that it would be awesome to create in Lego form, so I started planning. I started building slowly, oh so slowly making my way through piles of gray. I was stuck on the head, unsatisfied with my attempts, when I came across this version on Brickshelf. With new inspiration, I set about building anew. Eventually I finished old IG, only to have him collapse before I could take pictures. I rebuilt him, took pics, and now everyone can see. There are still a few places I may tweek, but overall I’m mostly satisfied. He’s pretty accurate and articulated, always a good combo.
