Suddenly I have Prince tunes going through my head and I don’t know why. It’s weird when that happens. Anyway, Marco De Bon built this delightfully purple mech he calls the FA-13 “Venus” and we’re all tickled pink about it. Or…purple, actually. Well, maybe a little pink. The translucent sparkly pink wings are actually doors that come from a rare Belleville set (good luck finding that!) and are used brilliantly here. The mech stands 8-inches (20cm) tall and is inspired by the insect-like mechs of the Aura Battler Dunbine anime series from the 80s.
Marco also constructed a stand for flying and action poses.
It seems as if the doors/ wings actually aren’t from 5963 (although they also appeared in 5897 and 5808), but they’re the glitter version from 7577 and 7582.
Either version seems reasonably fairly priced on BrickLink, though.
