LEGO Johnny Five
Daniele Benedettelli made an amazing LEGO Johnny Five, Steve Gutenberg not included…
The triangular structure of the treads has been built after precise studies of real Johnny five photos: a pre-production CAD drawing helped this process. An early version of J5 base had the most perfect proportions achievable with Lego gears, using Technic large turntables: unfortunately, those turntables made links escape while treads were turning.
So, in the actual version, turntables has been replaced by 40z gears, that don’t damage design too much and allow a very smooth motion.
