Video Tutorial: Transformer Bulldozer from LEGO Creator 31115: Space Mining Mech


This set has  a lot of catching up to do!  Well that's my thought when I started this project. I am planning to focus more on this year's LEGO sets  before the year is coming to an end.

Bulldozer coming through! After building so many space cruiser Transformer, it feels good to finally able to make something more down-to-earth once in a while.  LEGO set 31115  doesn't come with wheels.. so I have to make do with rounded parts to substitute actual working wheels. 

 By the way, my first Transformer built from this set  was Benatar , a space ship from Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2. (video below)

The bulldozer mode idea was sparked by the abundance of tiles from set 31115. They made perfect bulldozer bucket, and the clawed parts are icing on this "cake" 

My hope to line up each  side with 5 "fake" wheels was dashed after discovering that I have only 9 of the rounded parts at my disposal.

The windshield opens, but sits no driver/pilot.


Expand the well-pegged robot legs from vehicle body.

The bucket design took up most of the building time. They literally split into 3 panels on each side.

Flexibility of the bucket panels allowed for various feet configurations. The above is one of most stable one.


One of my proudest design moments is his head obviously, moving away from the conventional blocky looking ones from many of my previous LEGO Transformers..


Enjoy while you can folks! This is one of the very few LEGO Transformers I made with thumbs on his hands!
