The Crab

18 comments

There is a little crab in LEGO set 31088 Deep Sea Creatures, and I like its big red claws very much. However, they can’t move in the set, so I wanted to make my own movable crab. 

Now, here it comes. When its eight legs move, the crab’s eyes can move and its two big claws can wave too. The main axis realizes all the motion. The movement of the legs drives the eyes and the claws. Although the mechanism of this work is not complex, the movement is achieved through a minimum number of parts.

I am quite happy with my little crabs! I hope you are too! Thanks.
