Lego Ideas - Big Dai-X!

Postby AndyThomas » Mon Dec 04, 2017 2:55 pm

Greetings one and all, I've been wrestling with this one for a while as a few people asked for it and it may do better than X-Bomber itself, so - a fully digitally created, combining Dai-X is now up for support on the Ideas site! It's not super massive, but I've worked as much detail as I can in. It'd need more decals to get it show accurate as far as it could be, but I'll be interested to hear what you make of it!

The big red one is struggling for traction at the moment, but here are some pictures for those who haven't looked at Ideas - I can get you some bigger ones Crash if you'd like...

Impressive! Would Lee look better with short legs?

This is very clever. The Mainbody segment is particularly great.
Send me some big-a** pictures to put on the site.

Will do, might get chance tomorrow at some point if I'm lucky! MainBody was fairly easy to replicate, LegTrax was the most complex to figure out - I think they cheated in the show! BrainCom I had to compromise - the original version where I was trying to incorporate the split of the body was just too big for the rest of the components. So it looks OK as the head, but it isn't great as the fighter. However, kids have imagination, so... I've yet to try and build it physically, apart from half a leg just to convince myself it might work in the real world. If it does, he's going to be big!

Oh, and Lee would probably look a little odd with the tiny legs! They're really tiny! He wasn't that short, bless him?!

With Legtrax, I'm sure they did cheat in the show.
Braincom is gonna be tricky because it has it has a more intricate shape and yet is smaller to fit that detail onto.

That works great. It took me a while but there we are:
http://xbomber.co.uk/?dir=Star%20Fleet/ ... 0-%20Dai-X

I wondered if I could enlist someone's help with the navigation of the Star Fleet material on the X-Bomber site.
I've collected a lot over the last few years and I think there must be ways of presenting it in easier-to-navigate sorta ways (?)

Dai-X has now sunk, mecha just don't seem to fly too well on Ideas, but thanks to anyone who did support it. Crash, I think as long as you label stuff up well enough Google will enable people to find it these days. I used to re-jig SFXB's structure quite a lot as it got bigger, but maybe it's not so vital these days?
