    Alex Jones Well, the parts I used to make the joints of the leg aren't in LDD yet. The other way (dismantling it part by part and taking pictures for each step) I just don't want to do yet, because I don't want to take it apart.

    If there are enough people who actually want them I may be persuaded, but I'd want some assurance that people would actually build it.

    mahjqa I think you'll need factories to meet demand with this one...
  • Alex Jones 3y

    Assured ;)
  • bermudafreze 3y

    You even got the arm to wave! Fantastic creation.

    It's not finished, but this LXF file should cover the internal details:

    Those wheels look so flimsy, but it doesn't appear to be a problem. This is beautiful.
  • Tim Gould 3y

    You ridiculously amazing bastard.
  • Jared If only I remembered.... 3y

    They are pretty cool.
  • Duncan Adkins 3y

    SO great. You should've had it race the Traxx car, then do the falling over scene! Great work, and NPU with the cement barrels!
  • Pascal 3y

    Ok, perfection achieved.
  • halfbeak 3y

    I had fun building metal grude. I'm definitely going to try to build this one!
  • marshal banana 3y

    This thing is so sweet! As I saw it the first time I thought ok a mecha. But then I saw the video: o my god. This is so genius!
  • ZetoVince (George Panteleon) 3y

    Once again a mindblowing creation!
  • Mradakov 3y

    Holy Crap. But how?!

    How many remotes do you need for this one?
  • mahjqa 3y

    Mradakov At the end of the video there's a short bit where you see how a single leg moves. Actually, you only need two remotes; One motor moves all the levers that are used for walking*, and there's another two that drive the wheels on the left and right for tank steering. The fourth motor is used either for the eye, or to wave the arm.

    *There's one bit where I reused the walking mechanism; when it drives in the video it leans over to the left and to the right; that's actually the walking mechanism in a different configuration.
