Unusual Mecha

Name of Model: Morgan

I'm not a mecha fan, but I never stop being surprised at the way that mecha builders find ways to turn ordinary LEGO parts into bizarre and robotic things. On this one, there are claws, wrenches, minifig hands, binoculars, and even red Darth Vader helmets all used in bizarre places to get just the right effect. I'm guessing that this one took a while to figure out - and even longer to make it self-supporting in that standing position. Perusing some of the other photos available for this one, it becomes clear that this was just a way of putting rare parts to use (and the other bizarre elements were thrown in to perfect the color scheme!)
This is Saturday's model of the day
