Computer AI - Why I keep losing

When you're playing against the "Computer AI" - you're really playing against this guy.


No wonder I keep losing






Build #4 to Iron Builder


  • Katie Walker 3y

    Oh boy!
  • Simon Liu 3y

    Ken L Thanks :)
    I'll have the crown one way or the other... either the IB crown, or some Crown Royal ...

    John Ryclen Icre Thanks guys!

    Simon Schweyer I think this is my favourite too. :)

    Katie Walker ;)
    If you look carefully there are cheese wedges in there ;)
    Nick Della Mora ;) I'm a building ninja!
  • Katie Walker 3y

    I see them!

    And when I say "oh boy", I really mean, Oh my goodness how is this possible what were you thinking this is insanely crazily messed up cool. Or something like that. ;-D
  • Simon Liu 3y

    Katie Walker It's all about finding interesting uses for the mystery part... and one idea was fingers and it just grew. It actually took awhile to get the articulation points right...

    Maybe I'll bring this to BrickCon and you can see ;)
  • Katie Walker 3y

    Are you coming? I had thought I saw somewhere that you weren't going to make it?
  • Simon Liu 3y

    Katie Walker I wanted to but plans went sidewys... But there is a 11th hour campaign to get me there... So keep your fingers crossed.
  • Ben Caulkins 3y

    Simon Liu Dude. I ain't better than you!
  • .Tromas 3y

    Holy hell man...I knew you were good, but this absolutely blew my mind!!!
  • Carson Hart 3y

    .Tromas Blog him! Blog him!!! :P
  • .Tromas 3y

    Carson Hart Ha, you posted that as I was typing :D

  • Ben Caulkins 3y

    .Tromas Well about time!
  • Zeessi 3y

    Ridiculously expressive, incredibly well done. Love the use of the mini-minifigs as the tips of the fingers, and the regular torso for the thumb - smart stuff.
  • Andy / D-Town Cracka 3y

    You mentioned that it took a while to get the articulation right, and that is (to me) what makes this build so impressive! If the hands didn't have an organic flow to them, you would've missed the mark, however this is an absolute bullseye! These almost look like somebody is wearing Lego gloves!
  • Simon Liu 3y

    Ben Caulkins Let's talk when I build something equal to my body mass ;)

    .Tromas Woh thanks man!
    /robotic thumbs up

    Carson Hart Hahah - thanks for the cheerleading action ;)

    Zeessi Thanks man! It's all in the details.

    Andy / D-Town Cracka Hehe, yes - I think of all my recent builds in the last few months, this is the one I had to keep scratching and reworked to get it right. Ultimately it's made from pretty standard Mech style connections - just in the perfect combination :)
  • El Barto 3y

    Darned impressive!
  • Gabriel Thomson 3y

    Awesome, and great idea! The posing of the fingers on the keyboard and mouse looks very natural, and the whole presentation is just super-slick. I love it! :D
  • ZCerberus 3y

    Good entry Si. Love this one.

    It looks like the AI is flicking me off though!
  • Simon Liu 3y

    El Barto Thank you sir!

    Gabriel Thomson Thanks - I actually ended up taking a picture of my hands in that position to pose the hands right. :D

    ZCerberus I did build it with flipping you off in mind ;)

    Actually the fingers are places as if it was playing a shooter game.
  • Shannon Sproule 3y

    Outstanding mate! Wish I'd seen this sooner.
