Making alternate models from released LEGO sets is a challenging hobby, but Rogel Dela Fuente (RJ BrickBuilds) takes things to an impressive extreme with their transformation of a 42100 Liebherr R 9800 Excavator into Johnny 5 of Short Circuit fame. This is more than just a static creation – RJ has made a Johnny 5 that is truly ALIVE.
Engineered to make both arms swivel up and down while the neck turns from side to side while it’s pre-programmed to make spins and turns on the tracks. It’s remote-controlled via the LEGO Powered-Up App via a mobile device.
RJ showcases this amazing, fully-motorized creation in a three-minute video.
