Hi all,

After posting pics of my childhood hero Grendizer, I'm sharing some of his cousin Mazinger Z !

He's one of the most famous giant robots of Japan, and I tried to get his proportions right while maintaining great posing value, with joints on all the important places - it's been a challenging build !

I'm very happy with the result - so much that I made some adversaries for him, such as Doublas M2 :

When the fight gets very intense, Mazinger can suffer - Here's what he looks like, inspired by the fight he lead in his final episode :

And I'like to share a special version I made, inspired by the proposal seen on the Lego Car Blog to build in yellow and blue, which prompted me to make a symbolic gesture to support democracy :

The fight is hard. War is ugly. But these cartoons - Mazinger, Grendizer - taught us life is more important than everything. And freedom is paramount.

You can see more pics on my Flickr album !

Thanks for the compliment !

I've just updated my build with two less shoulder joints. It's a bit less poseable (can't cross arms anymore) but the overall look is more muscular / sexier !

And the updated Garada K7 for those who like a Very Bad Guy :

Ah ! Ah ! Interesting challenge ! I'll try to find an elegant way to fold the forearm and get Mazinger into firing position ! I'll post the result when done !

Hi all,

I've worked on those Drill Missiles ! Not as elegant as I wished (they are not articulated) but it was the most compact system I could think of.

And while I was at it, I worked on Mazinger's other weapons :

The Missile Punch !

The Iron Cutters !

And the Reinforced Punch !

Hope you like them ;)

The rocket drills are great, but I was surprised how good the iron cutter came out. You should post this in Lego Ideas.

Mmmh, I must admit I thought about this.

But even though I'd love my figures to become a real set, I used a few illegal techniques that would not pass the TLG board !

Hi all,

Mazinger fans might be interested in my new MOC, a rendering of God Mazinger, a "rock" derivative of the famous Super Robot :

The Anime series was cheap and not very popular, but an interesting point in the Mazinger saga anyway !
