I come bearing something new!
Right now, I’m calling it the “Strongarm”. I was looking at random pictures of other designs, and a few pieces in some of the builds stuck out. I then mentally put them together, and then finally dug out my small box of real life Lego bricks. The result is a design I’m actually really happy with.
My only current issue is that, with my current piece load, I can’t seem to come up with a leg design that looks suitably beefy enough to “realistically” hold up the torso. I have leg designs for other frame types and scales, but the torso is just too heavy duty for any of them to feel realistic. And I’m not entirely happy with the non-gun arm, but that I think will work with some tweaks.
Apologies for the not-so-great photos. My phone has a pretty decent camera, but at this time of night, I just don’t have a place where I can cleanly photograph the work.
