HOW DID YOU ASSEMBLE THIS, MY FRIEND?

seriously, i want to know how the arm attatches to the jet-pack. a rear-view photo would be nice.

on top of that, good job. he dosen't have enough leather crap and straps to justify steampunk yet, nor that good ol' copper metal look, but i'm a fan of the genre, so kudos to you.

Indeed, I sense a Commissar Yarrick in the works here. I look forward to seeing this guy tear someone in two with that claw.

I thought that yarrik's Arm was the claw, anyway to make that I used the jetpack thingy from the older space series , before mars , (2001?)

and attached one of thoes exoforce aticulation ball and sockets to the back , with some random technic and bionical . More picks to come when I find my cam again, Also If I used a viking body would it look more steampunk .

yeah, definitely a viking body. also if you have one of those aviator helmets? with the leather helmet and the goggles? that'd match up real nice. might not fit with the jetpack there though. the police cap is probably the second best choice.

My older Lego collection (still in a tub in my parents' house; I have GOT to retrieve that thing somehow...) had one of those style of Jetpack, and you could fit a space helmet on the minifig's head no problem. So I'd be willing to bet that you could put a helmet w/ goggles on without too much hassle.

i'm not too sure. there's a strap-looking thing that's in the back of the helmet, and that might be just low enough so it dosen't fit.

Apparently, King, and those hippie idiots who are still too stoned to realize the '70's are over (not to get political, but we could've won 'Nam if it wasn't for those damned hippies. If I had more long hair pieces, I would have a Brikwars battle to blow them thirty-five ways to hell.)

Jawohl














(no, I'm not a racist, or anti-[insert religious group of your choice here], it just seems like the most appropriate inappropriate thing to say at this point)
