[MOC] Walking Tank (Hexapod)

Recommended Posts

Wow. Amazing.

LEGO should license this. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

Best technic thing I've seen in a long time. Maybe ever.

Wow - really great seeing more MOC's around that move but don't have wheels. Well done.

Totally awesome!!! It reminds a bit of one of those strandbeests that Theo Jansen creates.

You should definitely put this up on Lego Ideas - beat them at their own game - there is no official Technic set as badass as this!!!

this is the most awesome thin i have seen all year!....the fact it transforms so smoothly and quickly, can steer, looks lifelike, badass, quite menacing, amazing panel placement.

this should be an official lego set....bravo!

First I saw this I thought 'Tank...where are the guns?' Till I see that pic below. It's cool.

Here is a little animation to see their kinematic:

Think the whole thing looks great. Rather you like it or not, it's very cool to see it how it's walking and showing/hiding the big guns. Like ... tadaaaa

And the way the cockpit opens... kind of high-tech.

Only a bit of a shame is the big opening in the cockpit. So that guy is a bit vulnrable.

I realize that I have not said thank you for the frontpage.

Also thank you for your comments and your welcome.

:classic:

Outstanding creation. You should enter this in Lego Ideas.

Lego ideas: no.

Lego can too easily refuse: it is a weapon.

I start ordering parts for a second hexapod to make photo instruction.

I'll do the driving part, without panel, cockpit and other.

I'd surely the rest too, but again later.

All this will surely take some time ...

Oooh, I love this one. Really good enginering on the turning system. Simple but very effective.

The hidden canons are a nice touch, but I really like the opening cabine.

It is a very nice inspiration for me. I am going to start designing my own walker. I already made a small demo version of the walking system for 1 leg. This is still the first version, so I will probably have to redesign it a couple of times to get it working the way I like it.

It could be possible to intergrate your system into mine and make the walker walk even better. So thanks :thumbup:
