Martian Tripod - War of the Worlds

This is my recreation of the Martian Tripod as seen in War of the Worlds (2005).

The set includes:

  • Martian Tripod fighting machine with fully poseable limbs, movable tendrils, rotating head, equitable laser cannons, (as seen on the first image below), and two cages for capturing it's enemies as seen in the film. The two cages can be detached to simulate a escape from the prisoners.
  • Ray Ferrier (Tom Cruise)
  • Martian minifigure. (The head of the martian is attached to a droid body part with a 48729 Clip Mechanical Claw & a 85861. Lego Plate, Round 1 x 1 with Open Stud.

Peice count

Tripod: 404 bricks

Martian: 8 bricks

Ray: 10 Bricks (like a generic figure with head peice)

I would love to build such a iconic character from science fiction history as a real set. The Tripod is massively tall because of it's sturdy ball and socket joint limbs and so hopefully it would make for a nice piece in your collection. Thank you for any support!
