OMNI 4p scale frames

Postby eduty » Tue Feb 24, 2015 2:31 pm

So, I was shopping on Pick a Brick and noticed that the traditional upright holder has been replaced by a new part that's $0.05 more than the old one. It's not an astronomical increase, but it has made me reconsider how I would design a frame for someone trying to get into the game. Someone who may be a lot like I was at 12 years old and not have a lot of money to get into war gaming.

I want the frames to still have a lot of articulation, detail, hard points, and a great selection of parts for remixing, but not exceed $8 per model. The result has been a bunch of 4p scale models using roughly the same parts.

Let me know your thoughts and suggestions:

What is an "upright holder" in that context?

I think you just did something here. I think you just went MFO on Mechaton...
These all are very nice, the scale is cool as hardsuit pieces at 7p so that is nifty. I see why the size brings so many challenges but scale builds like these that are diverse in design are crazy hard. Way to go!

Woah, is the old piece still in production as well?

I love that you "garage kitted" 3 frames from the same parts pool. I'm going to have to pull your LDD & BOM and play around with these. Well done!

Doesn't look like you can you build the 4th from the same parts pool. No?

No, the Vicky is more of a kitbash between the new 4p frames and some of the larger designs. I was trying really hard to pull off the Yates style arm joints on a smaller scale.

I really love these. I would enjoy fielding a full squad of them.

Compact and articulate! I can imagine these being nice swarmers and they just seem to be begging to be bricked :)

It begs to be brick'd and modified. This started out with a lot more armor and weapons - but I decided to trim it down before the render. Someone else can use their imagination to load it up.

This is a pretty brilliant collection of bits and there are a lot of nice connections in there. I made my own variation (minus systems) for the discussion on Engine Hearts.

This core with two lamp-holders and two 2x1 with bars is genius! I can see this being used to build all sorts of different mech.

I've got another 4P that I haven't posted the LDD for - maybe I'll change things up and PDF the instructions.

So i bricked the frame in the pic, and it seems to not want to stand, am i missing something?
Thank you for all the cool frames peeps.
