Doctor Dreadful and the Mechanical Monkey Machine
Here it comes, the first post in our brandnew blog. Since I started taking pictures of my Lego creations a while ago, I was gonna post them chronologically. But my collection has grown steadily over the past few months and frankly, the old MOCs (?) wouldn't make a good start. So screw chronological order and start with the latest piece of fun:
Doctor Dreadful and his monstrous steam-powered monkey walker. The townfolks are shocked but still impressed as the famous and feared Doctor takes his latest invention for a test ride. Complete with two steam boilers, the inevitable number of valves, gauges, gears and some brassy stuff. Oh, and a clever Banan-o-Vision® device to keep the monkey dedicated to it's noble endeavour.
This started out as an experiment on how much stuff one can add to a monkey figure. Note that everything in this machine ist attached exclusively to the monkey. Each limb holds one of the walker's legs, all the rest is connected to it's tail and stomach. Poor monkey.
