Wave Speeder

Post by FD_agentminky on Tue 24 Aug 2010, 2:26 pm

Recently, I've purchased My first Lego Atlantis set: the Wreck Raider. It's small, but I liked it quite a lot. While I was playing with it, I disconnected the turbines and attached them to Ace Speedman's helmet. I was impressed with the way it could integrate with other elements, so I decided to build a little MOC out of the pieces of the Wreck Raider exploiting it:

When you need both the agility of a simple diving suit and the durability and speed of a vehicle, then use Wave Speeder! It's speedy and strong, but not too big or bulky. I've used a lot of unconventional techniques to make up for my small parts palette. I don't think any of them are "illegal", but please tell me if you do spot such a technique.

What do you think?

Awesome! I love how you build it, there is no illegal techniques at all! And, you can't really do "illegal" buildings? Bricks are made to be assemble as many ways as possible. Anyway, it's is really a good creation you made there!

Thanks very much, Hobino! I'm glad you like it! Very Happy.

By the way, an illegal technique is simply a technique that would never be used by the official designers (usually for stability reasons). Smile

Ok, I didn't know that.
You know a lot about building techniques and all that stuff!

Thank you very much, but I wouldn't go that far. Smile. I just looked at a Lego glossary (http://www.brothers-brick.com/lego-glossary/). I highly reccomend it. It's really useful!

Sounds cool! I have the Wreck Raider and I'll try making it too! Thanks for the idea.
