Video Tutorial: Transformer Bird from LEGO Marvel set 76171: Miles Morales Mech armor


 Initially,  the alternate mode I planned (and almost completed)  for this set/Transformer  was not a bird....

.... but it was yet another vehicle. Since I seldom build Transformers with animal modes,  I decided to tweak my initial designs  in favor of this bird mode instead.

ABOUT SET 76171: Miles Morales Mech Armor

This set was released last year (2021), and I got many requests to build a Transformer from it.

So I did, and the first one I made turned into a Microscope (below), and was published few months ago.

Since Marvel Mech sets has good potentials, I will try to build at least 3 Transformers from each set. And time is ripe for a second Transformer from Miles Mech Armor set!


So, it turns into a bird. Yeah, generic sounding, I know. But I seriously can't decide on a more  specific term.  It fulfils the main criteria of a bird:  wings, a beak, and a  bit of tail. Perhaps it's a bird of chick proportions (baby bird?).

Not long after this creation was done, I was inspired to build something similar using another LEGO set (click here for more info),  and published that earlier!


The standing poses above really did not do justice to this creation. The following "flying poses" were made possible by an external transparent lego piece to prop it up.

My favorite part of the built is no doubt.... the mean-looking bird head!


Since transformation from bird to robot mode was super-easy, I won't be showing the transformation photos.
