They call him Ol' Dusty
Posted 12 August 2012 - 09:28 PM
When I was at BrickFair, I chanced upon a vendor selling Throwbots and Robo Riders in great condition, so I decided to pick up #8513 Dust. Great set it was, but I felt like revamping it. This was the result.
I felt like turning the set into a bipedal form akin to other LEGO action figure lines, but didn't want to lose the original motorbike appearance, so he can transform back into a vehicle of sorts.
And I just gave him a tail for no reason at all. :U
That's all for now. Might do some other revamps soon. Hope you like it~

Now on a conceptual level I can't say I like this MoC very much, taking away the uniquely awesome, yet unorthodox bike-based design of the Robo Riders and making Dust a humanoid scorpion just doesn't gel with me. Feel free to take this part of my criticism with a grain of salt, it's driven by personal bias for the most part.

Perhaps we might see something similar made with the Hero Factory system in the future? That would be pretty cool.

By the way, Ol' Dusty looks awesome! I always had an idea of Slizer who can enter the virtual reality and using special service bot - Patch - easily transform into Roborider.
