1) What is it?
This is a warrior robot. Even though
he's a machine, don't let that fool you. His dedication to his cause,
his sense of adventure, and his pursuit of what is right will match any
of his human peers. As a class KL80 model, he is equipped with a number of weapons. He has a laser canon on each shoulder, a blaster on each hip, a pulse emitter on each hip (behind the blaster), and two swords on his back. This warrior robot is also a skilled pilot and a loyal friend to his fellow warriors.
Regarding the model, the robot has 254 pieces, is 8" tall, 5" wide, 5" long, weighs 4.5 ounces, and - most
importantly - has 23 points of articulation. Those points are: left
antenna ear can rotate and swing (1, 2), right antenna ear can rotate
and swing (3, 4) head can rotate and nod (5, 6), both shoulders rotate
(7, 8), both elbows bend (9, 10), both wrists turn (11, 12) hips can turn (13), both legs bend at
the hips (14, 15), both knees bend (16, 17), both ankles bend (18, 19),
both lasers on shoulders bend back and forth (20, 21), and both doors on
torso open (22, 23). (Inside the doors is a mysterious powerful jewel
that acts as the robot's heart.)
2) Why did you build it?
built this robot because I like robots. I also wanted to challenge
myself to see if I could build a robot with many points of articulation
while also not using many pieces. By including 23 points of
articulation in only 254 pieces, I think that goal was met.
3) Why do you believe this would make a great LEGO set?
think this would make a great set because robots are awesome! Plus,
with all of the articulation in this robot, there are countless
adventures this robot could go on. He is ready for your imagination to
send him on his next mission.
