Astrosaurus

Post by adamsonofwilliam on Wed Dec 03, 2014 8:56 am

So the other day I came across an image by the comic artist Frank Cho: http://comicattack.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/6409372-50-girls-50-3.jpg

After seeing it (though it was a sketch version rather than the coloured one you'd see with the link) I couldn't get the idea of a T-rex in a space suit out of my head.  Because of that, last night I put together what you see below:

It came together much quicker than I thought it would.  There are some connections (waist, shoulders) that are pretty light, but it holds together enough to do the trick.

I saw this on The Brothers Brick a week or so ago, and I had no idea it came from so close to home!  This is a really cool build.  Smile
