Angus MacLane (MacLane) brings us an awesome hardsuit, with a Galidor twist. He’s combined a great model with one of the worst things ever made by Lego. When he hears that Galidor was canceled, he’ll be crying himself to sleep on his colossal pillow.
Surprisingly, many LEGO fans have never heard of the Ooni or of Galidor, LEGO’s failed action figure line and TV series from 2002. In my ongoing attempt to make Galidor cool, I give you the Ooni Brute. I envision him as a foot soldier of an invading alien army. His helmet assembly isn’t for breathing air, but for regulating internal body temperature because the Ooni are cold blooded.
For a long time now, I wanted to do something with the Galidor head I had. My idea was to build a mecha or hardsuit around it. The result: Daedalus Zero G Drop Suit. As it was taking shape, it started feeling like a version of a Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger. It features the domed helmet, retractable wings and jetpack, big res chest button, communicator on the right gauntlet and a laser on the left gauntlet.
