This project here really took me my surprise! "How so?", you might ask.
As the year 2022 is coming to an end, I am switching my focus to more LEGO sets released on this year. The following Wolverine mech armor set 76202 is schedule to have yet another Transformer be made from it.
Many months back, I built my first Transformer from the set above, and I am very pleased with the alternate mode, a space cruiser. (tutorial below). This made me kinda hard to move on and dismantle this fine and sleek creation!
Eventually I did, and last month I started building a new Transformer using it and hit builder's block, leading me nowhere. Probably it's because of my insistence of using those long blades in my creation.
As I almost gave up and plan to put this set in cold storage , I took a last ditch effort to tinker around with the current half-baked work in progress.... it struck me that I can contort it to become a wedge-like shape. The rest is history!
One funny thing is.... this eureka moment happened one fine morning when I was watching reruns of an old series related to ships..... The Love Boat!
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
The alternate mode for this LEGO Transformer is the iconic spaceship from Star Wars: the Imperial Star Destroyer!
I've made quite a few Star Wars Transformers recent, some using official LEGO sets. Click here to view them.
The thruster engines at the back of the ship was the finishing touches to this project mere minutes before I snapped these photos.
Building Instructions in the form of a video tutorial , is located at the bottom of this page.
