Video Tutorial: Transformer Drill Tank from LEGO 76198: Spider-Man & Doctor Octopus Mech Battle


Here's one from me to commemorate the "reunion" between Spider man and Doctor Octopus in the recent Spider Man 3: No Way Home movie! I'm very sure Doc Ock is one of the most anticipated villain in that movie.


I've been eyeing set 76198: Spider-Man & Doctor Octopus Mech Battle  for almost a year before making my hit. With 2 mech armors in a single set, it provides tons of  ball joints for me to build my LEGO Transformers!   Finally it was bought at a 20% off  in the mall where I lived.

I am favoring Doc Ock's mech armor from this set due to the extra parts count needed to complete it, especially the 4 tentacles.  So as a starter, let me try to build a Transformer from only those parts (rather than using the whole set). 

I've made many LEGO Transformer tanks before, some  using official LEGO sets. Click here to view  them. 


A drill tank mode was chosen due to very obvious reason: the clamps from Doc Ock's tentacles look like drills, despite not being able to rotate/spin.

The 3-fingered claws was initially placed on his crotch, but that would render his upper body/chest flat and devoid of any details.
