LEGO Shockwave: 3-D Modular Design
A 3D modular form exercise for the LEGO company; Lego recreation of Transformer's character Shockwave.
To create a functional LEGO figure that resembles the Shockwave character from the Transformers movies as an ideation proposal for a finalized set design.
The LEGO creation must have 13 functional and stable pivot points and utilize 1000+ individual pieces.
I thought that many of the lego sets in the market now aren't as structurally dense and visually embellished as they could be. I wanted to take on this challenge utilizing the full potential of every LEGO piece; using them in unexpected and creative ways to create a matured stylistic look while still maintaining the structural stability every manufactured lego set requires.
Each type of LEGO piece has a very distinct form. The mechanical form portrayed in the movies has elements that mimic human anatomy. I tried to use pieces with curves and bevels to help illustrate some of the organicism that brings the metallic machine to life.
