So I've been watching JangBricks' channel for awhile now, and I've always thought these little sets were pretty neat, but I could never justify $5 a pop for something I wasn't all that interested in.

Well fear not! Walmart, or at least the one I saw these at, has them for a mere 2.47 a piece (though they still ring up as $5, the big box with GIANT LETTERING can't be an accident :lol: ).

Image
Well I couldn't help myself, so I snatched up the machine-themed trio,and messed around with them a bit. Of the three, Jinky is by far my favorite, and I'm pretty happy with what I managed to do with Gox and Camzo here.

Image

But that, glorious golden 'stache and all, had to come apart, because the combination model was my final goal!

It was...less than impressive. I think I had it finished for all of thirty seconds before tearing off the face, legs, and lower torso.

The legs couldn't swing forward, so I switched up the jointing first (though I didn't quite finish it right then, back to that later).

Next, I had to fix that face! I wasn't crazy about the doofy mono-eye, and the golden 'stache was left sitting on the ground, so that needed fixed right away. I went back to Jinky's face-type, since I liked his best anyway.

Image

Well by now the legs were falling apart, as they weren't well connected, so taking what I needed, I fashioned some braces, and here's the final product. Oh, and the remaining parts became a cycloptic, one-armed hammer. :grin:

Image

Which can also connect to one of the half dozen spare ball-cup pieces I used to fill in the backs of the legs...

Image

Fisticuffs!

Image

And just because I had to work in every single part. :lol:

These sets have always intrigued me on my visits in shops! Though I think Bionicle will take most of my Lego money now..
