LEGO Half-Life 2 Combine Strider and Gunship by NeweRegion LEGO Half-Life 2 Combine Strider and Gunship by NeweRegion
EDIT 3: HOLY CRUD! IT ALREADY HAS WAY MORE FAVES THAN MY PREVIOUS MOST FAVED WHEATLEY!

EDIT 2: WOW! I can't believe this has almost passed my most favorited deviation in just two days! My LEGO Wheatley [link] only recently passed my first GLaDOS MOC, which was the first deviation I had that was most faved!

EDIT: Geez Louise, why does everyone like this Half-Life 2 deviation so much? I have a lot of other good ones, you know. Like my Combine APC or the Gonarch (which I'm really proud of). What makes this one so special, especially to all the groups that want to add it? Not that I'm complaining, but it's just weird.
Especially since the Strider isn't explicitly my own design. Also, this wasn't meant to look like a diorama, I just put Gordon there to show the scale.


The Combine Strider and Gunship synths from Half-Life 2.
My original versions of these can be found on MOCPages here: [link]
I've since improved them a bit to make them more accurate.
As I explain on MOCPages, the Strider wasn't originally my design, I saw someone else's LEGO Strider on MOCPages and thought that it looked the best of any I've seen (that was closer to minifig scale). So I made mine based of that one, but I didn't copy it completely, of course. But since then, I've made my version even better: I gave it more accurate colors where I could, and I even made the pulse gun on its "head" able to swivel and look around like in the actual game.

I don't really have anything special to say about the Gunship.

Also, Gordon Freeman with his RPG.

I actually just started making sets based on Half-Life 1 and 2 using LDD.
Mainly for myself, though.
I don't think LEGO would ever pick up Half-Life as a theme simply because of the violence of the games. LEGO seems to only get licenses for sets based on kid-friendly things.

Then again, they did just secure a license for Jurassic World sets, so maybe I'm wrong.

You've represented every detail superbly.   To be sure your other work is good , but this one just feels different, more grand. You've completely blown the lid of what I thought was possible with Lego.  Kudos to you :)

Did you use one of those transparent discs from a Lego Star Wars Hailfire Droid for the durafram surrounding the propeller.

Yes.

Hah. Knew it. If you didn`t, then there would be no way that the duraframe could sustain the round shape at the same level.

Duraframe? It's a chain tread...

This is such a fantastic and intimidating Strider. I'm not familiar with Bionicle / Hero Factory , but I love the piece you've used for it's head. It definitely has that organic look to it.

Also, I didn't use any Hero Factory parts, just Technic and Bionicle.

I agree. Also, nice penis cannon the Strider got. Yes, that's what i think it looks like.
