Hi Sokoda here!
This MOC was my entry for Bricklinks AFOL Designer Program contest. It wasn’t selected as a finalist, but I still wanted to share it here.
Here is the Text I entered with the model:
A lonely machine, built millennia ago, on his way on an abandoned and strange desert planet.
The Cyber-Saur is a dinosaur robot, inspired by the Spinosaurus. The machine is long forgotten by its creators and now wanders the planet it was brought to a long time ago.
I wanted to build a model that shows, how LEGO system pieces and LEGO Technic can be used together for new and interesting building techniques. I thought the best way to represent this is something that is part technology, part natural: A long extinct creature brought to live threw technology.
I always loved Dinosaurs and Robots, I also am a huge BIONICLE fan and I wanted to give my own spin on the idea of Robot-Dinosaurs.
I chose a dark gray color scheme to emphasize the robotic aspect of the model and added the trans-bright-green highlights to give the model a more Cyber-Punk-style, because this color is glowing really cool looking under a blue light or a UV-light.
The model is posable in his head, tail, arms, legs, claws and hands. The rib-cage styled torso is a nod to Dinosaur skeletons and allows a look inside the robot, where I added some gears and pipes to give the Cyber-Saur a more mechanical look.
I initially added the baseplate, because I wasn’t sure how stabile the Cyber-Saur would stand, but it also allows some more creative poses when displaying the set. I chose a red ground and the blue color of the plants to give the Cyber-Saurs surroundings a very alien look. The broken pieces of technology sticking out of the ground are supposed to give the landscape a rough and abandoned look.
I wanted to do a Science Fiction or Space based set, without it being a classic spaceship, mech or vehicle. Furthermore I wanted to make the surrounding of the model look very strange and alien and use a combination of technic and system pieces.
I hope you like my model
Stud.io-file if anyone is interested, all the pieces are available in the colors they have in this set, so you could bricklink it if you want to
