After weeks of building and waiting for more bricklink orders... I present the Mecha Townhouse! I wanted to make a townhouse that uses all my spare yellow bricks, but I realized I didn't have the pieces I wanted for an interior. So I did something a little different. I made a robot house that fully transforms.
From the street, it looks like a regular custom lego townhouse.
But if you fold open the side walls and detach the base plate, arms and legs fold out!
.... To form the Mecha Townhouse!
It even can make a few poses.
The cockpit can fully detach to become an escape pod if something goes wrong.
Who would win?
Here's how the arms fold out. They're attached to a rail system which keeps them in place.
The walls that fold out are just attached to CCBS bones.
The legs are a little more complicated. Theres vertical racheted joints that allow you to splay them out, and they slide on those two axles so that it can fold up and out.
The whole thing is remarkably stable for its size. If you bump it a little, it wont fall over.
