Comments: "I wouldn't want to get in it's way" - Brigadier General Jacob "Trapper" Blockman

The CDF "Stalwart" Planetary Defense Mech is comprised of 739 bricks in it's current configuration, including one minifig pilot.

Constructed using clicking articulated ball joints in elbows, shoulders, hips, and knees to support and hold poses of the larger model, and using simple ball joints for the ankles to allow greater posability this Mech has a wide range of playable motion with thirteen points of articulation, not including the fingers and cockpit hatch. A lot of time went into making sure there was as little interference between torso and limbs as possible. Growing up we used to build giant robots all the time but we never had the kind of pieces available today. They were blocky and clumsy in patchwork colors but we had fun all the same. But now! All the cool bits! I have been building up a supply of them so I can build monster projects like this for real. Hopefully, you fine master builders will help get this Mech off the ground and we can all enjoy.

Thank you!
