Lego Special Build: Medieval Max

Well, this is the 50th build I`ve reported on this year, so that is something to scratch of my to do list.

And the honour goes to the combiner form of the Mixels I have been doing the past week, the Medieval tribe.

You can also check some of my thoughts on it here

Now, this set is made by downloading the instructions from the Lego site, and you will need all three Mixels from the series for the parts to build it.

The build starts with a round plate as the base for the beast we will be making.

On top of this plate, a coat of brown plates and connector pieces are placed to form the core for the limbs and head to move on.

At the front, those are some short claw like appendages, as we build up the body more.

The body contains the moving element for the catapult, which was also a feature of the Mixadel mixel from the series.

That catapult, once assembled and connected to the main body, forms the tail of the beast.

The underjaw is build next, using a red flag for the tongue, which I think is a nifty technique.

The upperjaw, which we build next, also uses this feature, but now the flags are used as the ears of the beast.

The final thing we need to build are the short backlegs, who are using a surface big enough to pose the beast in a stable position.

Add the golden wings from Palladum to these, and we have Medieval Max, a dragon like beast!

The set uses about half of the elements available, so that leaves us with a big collection of parts:

I`m really fond of the build, and I think it looks just great as a `finale` for a Medieval tribe.  Because as you get a `knight`, a 'catapult' and a 'horse' in the theme, it`s only fitting they all build up to a dragon!
