    Just a Lego custom I came up with- a random cannon drone because I couldn't think of anyone who looks like this. If you can attach a name to this guy, I'd be happy.

    As with every MOC I make, I generally use grey parts, due to my lack of specifically-colored parts and lack of cash that I'm willing to fork over to Bricklink.

    He transforms into a cannon, not unlike G1 Galvatron. He has seven points of articulation (shoulders, waist, hips, and knees).

    This is him, next to my Siege: War for Cybertron Deluxe Class Hound, for comparison.

    I will post instructions below.

    Cannon Drone Instructions

    Start with these pieces:
    IMG_0260.jpg
    Make a few basic assemblies for the torso:

    Build the legs:

    Arms:

    Head (Note: it isn't very visible, but a cone piece is what has been shoved into the headpiece. It's a bit hard to get it out of there, so you don't have to put it in there if you don't want to.):

    By now you should have the following assemblies:

    Put together the torso:

    Attach the legs to the hips and the arms to the shoulders:

    Attach the head:

    And, you're done!

    Transformation (Yeah, I almost forgot that!)

    Firstly, straighten all of his limbs. They need to line up for this to work.

    Second, put his legs into a "sitting position," or right angle.

    Then, bend the feet, putting them forwards. They should veer off to each side a bit; that's good.

    The last step is optional; however, it adds to the look. Turn the cannon around, and lightly push the clips to the center of the bar. Straighten it all out.

    If you want to, add a little decor, and you're done!
