Video Tutorial: Transformer Dragon from LEGO Ninjago 71718: Wu's Battle Dragon


I must say, this is  my favorite 2020 LEGO set so far, when it comes to best-bang-for-buck factor and abundance of many cool parts to build a Transformer from.

My initially idea was to build a TF resembling Deathsaurus (from Japanese Transformer:victory series), since the official dragon mode already have the wings ready to be used with minimal modifications.




 

I retained the official dragon head design coz it looked so cool , and I'm lazy to attempt building a different head.




 






One thing I have given up trying was to give him an extra pair of arms, coz I have run  out of hinges to do so! 



TRANSFORM!

 

My favorite part of the design process: concealing the robot head as part of the streamlined dragon neck with gold trimmings.

 




ROBOT MODE


The chunky-looking thighs are the result from me trying to strengthen the pelvic joints with brackets. Without them, they popped of easily during handling. 


 

Note the double jointed elbows, which is a rarity in my LEGO TF.
