Took a break from building reFrames and did this guy.
Fell in love with the design of this toy a long time ago and always wanted one (the 1/12 scale) but it was just so expensive haha :P
Started out as a chunky clunky version then got streamlined into what the body is now but was a solid build (no cockpit and gimmicks). Fellow LEGO mech builder Bert Seguinal gave me some tips when he visited and decided to rebuild the whole thing ground up while adding a minifig compartment inside (what it currently is).
While the build isn't a 100% accurate build, my priority was getting the curves right and using that 4x4 dome for the top. The eye idea actually came from Jan LEGO but he used a different orientation for the eyes (mine look angled although his version was more accurate to the toy - looking straight).
