Super Soldier

Name of Model: Super Soldier
Created by: legoloverman (Pete Reid)
Found at: NeoClassicSpace & Flickr
Details: Legoloverman created this awesome bit of science fiction for NeoClassicSpace.com's month-long celebration of the 30th anniversary of the classic space sets from LEGO. The idea of the celebration has been to make "classic space" style creations using modern fan techniques, and they have posted 1 or 2 a day all month for March.

I'm usually a sucker for a really good mech or, in this case, mech-type creation. NeoClassicSpace described him as a "Space Marine Cyborg."

I love the use of lots of little tiny parts to create the whole look. You get the idea that this cyborg is in minifig scale (i.e. he's supposed to fit in with a world that is inhabited by minifigs) -- it's just that all his robotic enhancements mean he's about 9 feet tall, in 'fig feet. :)
