Hi all, Two years ago my girlfriend's son challenged me to build a 20cm Goldorak (Grendizer), my TV hero from 1978. I first believed it would be impossible, as I remember vividly trying to build a good-looking one with the parts available in the late 70s - fat chance ! So in 2020, I started browsing the Net for Grendizer and Mazinger MOCs, as well as other mechas for inspiration. I loved the models built by Len_d69, samsky76, Marco de Bon, Andrea Chaipella, Kaho82, Moko, but none was capturing the proportions of my hero to my satisfaction. After many, many hours of prototyping with real- and virtual- bricks (thanks MLCad, I love you), I could offer the boy his own Lego Grendizer for his Birthday. One year later, I've discovered how to make renderings with Blender so I can make clean pics of my creations... (it takes so long making real photos) so here's a selection. The figure stands 20cm tall, with a lot of articulations giving a lot of posing value. Here's a little fight to prove the point : Here are some of the baddies (Golgoths in French) he can fight with : ... and here's an ally in the form of his buddy Mazinger (I'll make a post for this one, who is much more famous than Grendizer ;-). You can see more on my Grendizer album ! Enjoy, Alexandre
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 ! Alexandre
