Oh yes! I have been waiting to see one of these since the Community Build started! I love the levers for the spikes. Great job!

Solid work done with this one; I like the articulation you put into it. I built my own Nexu MOC last year and I also used levers as the spikes (albeit completely black ones) and I also used the same technique for the eyes as you.

Very clever build. I was thinking of trying my hand at these beasts for the community build. I like the levers as spikes. I will have to see what I can come up with and how I can compare to your clever build.

Very cool. Looks somewhat spindly, but agile, something that really makes it what it is in the movie. I love the teeth technique, in addition to the spikes...when are we getting an Acklay? :sweet:

The leavers as the bristles look good.

The articulation is a must for this beast as there's quite a few scenes I want to shoot it with.

It's not really in minifig scale as I've wanted to put more detail into it.

You'll still have to wait a bit longer for the other two!  :laugh:

I've wanted to use the horns initially but would have made the body thicker than two studs so scrapped that and used the levers instead.

I'd still like to improve upon the teeth but it will do for now.  :sweet:
