LEGO 70707 Eradicator Mech Alternate Mode

Thic MOC is made from the parts from set 70707 Eradicator Mech . Not only that.... the parts were taken from ONLY the white mech ,leaving the other 2 critters untouched. Actually I plan to make full use of all the parts from this set, but was "intercepted" during disassembly by my spouse to leave the critters alone coz she liked 'em. Ah well.. that's less 100 parts for me to utilise I guess.

I've taken about 2 days over the last weekend to complete this MOC. Just like most of my LEGO-formers , It's fully transformable into a space jet without separation of parts.

  • Even though I'm happy to see many bracket parts at my disposal... but the set offered me pretty minimal numbers of basic plates (the garden variety 1 x 4 or 1 x 6 plates)...  thats why I have to be very frugal in building the mech legs and resorted to using technic beams to form the thighs.
  • The balljoints forming the knees is a bit wobbly and compounded by the jet cockpit folded to the back of this mech , limiting it's stabiliy  . I have to lean him against the wall during photoshoot for some action poses.
  • This is the first LEGO-former I made using parts from a single official LEGO set. Actually I intended to merge this set with 70701 Swarm Interceptor and crank something up. But after evaluating the parts from set 70707 at a glance... it seemed to offer good selection of parts to get my started , I guess. So, finally this MOC is born!

3rd mode: Babysitter for naughty spacers

some leftover parts unused.

I think I'll leave this on the display shelf before compiling the instructions. For you guys who are interested to know the instructions to build this MOC... stop by my blog about 1-2 weeks later.  ~tata !
