I started with Set 31047 one fine afternoon and it took me about 3 - 4 hours with disruption from a lil monster trying to foil my plan and throw the parts about as I build it.
Due to lack of ball joints, this MOC will not be transformable. However, he still can manage a bit of articulations on the upper body.
The same night, I sneak out of my bed and start my engine running again by spending another 3++ hours MOCing a robot from the set below (31049), uninterrupted. Yay.
Same like Project 1, this robot is not transformable and with limited articulations. Hmm....
I'm very proud of this one! Started yesterday morning with some interruptions and took me one whole day to built and refine....
Below is the outcome of my built and this vehicle, I repeat..... this vehicle can transform into a robot!
before I start building from this set, I found the long technic beams (that always exist underneath mid size LEGO vehicles) to be very intimidating and almost-redundant . Eventually I found a way still. (refer to photos below of the partial transformations ).
Btw, I dislike transformers with bulky tyres on the side of their hips.
I will compile building instructions for my 3 projects above to be published here in my blog in the following weeks.
For more frequent updates, I will show step by step building instructions , one component at a time of my projects above in my facebook page too! So please visit my FB page below more often and follow my "lessons" there. Your support and likes are very much needed. Thanks guys!
