Cuusoo of the Day: Bat-Pod & Drop-Ship

Pick of the Day

Batpod
by Pitrek02


Although full of illegal techniques, this is a very slick Minifig scale Bat-Pod.  I like the clever use of two minifig helms to create the body.  A lot of legal minimalism going on.  The severed hands are not critical to the build it appears.

The presentation is also rather good, especially for the theme so props for that as well.


Honorable Mention

Hawk Dropship
by Scottlfa


This project gets points for originality.  I don't think I have seen another Mecha drop ship in all of Cuusoo.  The scale combined with a non-existent IP are probably going to keep it from every getting built though.  My recommendation to Scottfla would be to repackage this as a smaller build, half this length perhaps.

I would also make the coloring a bit more consistent.  Actual Lego sets are actually given a color budget.  The mecha have yellow but the ship has white...pick a Color theme that is distinct throughout mecha and ship
