Here is Metal Gear Rex. I built it using parts from the Lego power miners theme, hence the orange and lime green.
Metal Gear is a nuclear equipped bipedal tank, from the series called… get this: Metal Gear. Now I’m not too familiar with the Metal Gear series but since it is
- A series that spans decades
- Obtuse when it comes to story
- Sci-fi, with anime mechs
The similarities to another series I like, ahem, bionicle, probably explain my interest in it.
I started this build almost 2 years ago, but never finished it, with only the head and legs built. Until this week when I decided to complete it. My original intent was to make Metal Gear Sahalanthropus, but I am running low on pieces and this thing is already unstable as it is. In terms of accuracy I wasn’t too concerned about a lot of the details, just the more recognizable parts like the head. It could probably use a bit of reworking to make it more stable and more model accurate, but for now this is how it is. For reference here is a picture of the actual Metal Gear.
Here are some other poses for the moc:
