very clever, got any ideas for making snaptrap like this? been trying for a while now
The same basic building techniques would work for Snaptrap as well as the others here.
That's very convincing, Boltax! You continue to make super-pro builds!
(Now, if I could just convince you to pick up some of my helmets...)
Love seeing this kind of stuff
Your work rocks mate.
S'funny. I *LOVE* your helmet designs. They're frickin' great -- but that's the kind of customising I don't generally enjoy.
And I totally get the value of the pure kitbash. It's clean. It's affordable. It looks more convincing as a real product. You don't end up with something that looks like mixed media, or struggle to find color matches.
Plus, custom parts can be a real slippery slope...today a helmet, tomorrow a gun, next week some wings, next thing you know, you are just ordering a full-bodied third party figure.
Anyway, I'll end by reiterating my compliments on an awesome Star Saber. He totally looks the part.
Just thoguht I'd show off how Scattershot's torso is built. To get that much detail into his front panels he needed to have a unique construction to his torso. It requires Kre-O parts here, too.
Pic 1: Scattershot torn to pieces.
Pic 2: Scattershot's lower half. Using a Kreon torso and Kre-O mini-fig 2x2 bracket pieces you create your platform. On top of the brackets you place a 1x1 brick piece that is 2/3rds high. This is (as far as I know) a unique Kre-O piece not available in LEGO. On top of the 2/3rds brick, place a 1x1 tile piece.
Pic 3: The upper torso -- remember to layer the bracket pieces in the same way here as on the bottom torso. If the one facing front is on the bottom down bellow, it has to be on the bottom up top.
Pic 4 and 5: Now the two torsos are held together not by interlocking from underneath -- instead they're held together by the plates in front and in back which wedge the two halves together.
