Lego: Starcraft 2 Hydralisk by retinence Lego: Starcraft 2 Hydralisk by retinence
This is the Zerg Hydralisk from the game Starcraft 2. I wanted to build this for a while but didn't think it was possible. The Infestor, Xenomorph, and Gyarados I made showed me the techniques necessary for this.

I still have a few more pieces coming in to finish this off. I'll post more poses and angles when they do (and after Christmas).

I really like building Zerg now. I have a Zergling coming up next. Mutalisk, Ultralisk, and Broodlord are also very possible.

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

Seeing it also reminds me Mega Bloks is supposed to be making Starcraft Sets supposedly coming out in 2013 probably to coincide with Heart of The Swarms release

Upon my second visit to this moc I saw something. This thing is quite light isn't it?
From your profile view it seems that you have ridiculous building efficiency.
Reply
:iconretinence:
retinence Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2012
You are correct. My building efficiency is second to none. I rarely, if ever, use filler parts. So it is definitely lighter than it should be. But it's still top heavy because of the mass of pieces on the back. So it's not as stable as I'd like.

That's absolutely brilliant. How do you go about building things like this though?
Do you carefully plan everything out before you start, or do you just build as you go?
Reply
:iconretinence:
retinence Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2012
A bit of both. I plan out my approach and figure out the details as I build.

This is seriously the coolest lego sculpture that I have seen. Truly excellent! I love it and I love the unit (although I know it purely from the first starcraft).

AWESOME!

this looks great and all but dont the two dishes on the chest look odd coloured. Did you buy all of the exo-force arms of bricklink(from one seller)?
Reply
:iconretinence:
retinence Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012
I like the the tan dishes because they give a contrast from the ribs to the abdomen. I can easily change them but that area wouldn't be as interesting anymore. I bought the exo-force arms from a few different sellers, over a few months.
Reply
:iconmr-shazam:
mr-shazam Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
yeah i agree, i think it would look better with hints of tan around the whole thing for example the dish on the tail. It looks great either way :D I thought that, it would be hard to find a seller with that many.
Reply
:iconretinence:
retinence Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2012
I wanted to put hints of tan in more places but didn't want to change random pieces to achieve that effect. I know how to do it but it would increase the build time by too much, and get way more complicated.
