    It´s such a great idea building the Iron giant and additionally you have the skills to make it real in such a superb way... Chapeau!

    I have built this MOC and I love it. It is super sturdy and poseable. I love how it looks next to the Voltron Lego Ideas set. 

    It is a superb construction and everyone loves it when I take it to conventions and expositions. Now, the only section I would look to modify would be the waist. I think it doesn't have a smooth movement  and doesn't have the same sense of sturdiness that the rest of the build has. 

    But in general, I loved it and I think it is an impressive set.

    I have just built this model and have one thing to say... WOW.

    I have built a few MOCs over the years and most of the LEGO Technic range and building this ranks up there with the best of them. I said that if LEGO ever made a version of Iron Giant I would be there to buy it but was dismayed that the one in the running on ideas was rejected So when I found this one it was a quick decision. It brought back so many memories of watching the film with my kids that it just had to be done. The instructions are very good and arrived within seconds of making the payment to Buildbetterbricks. The first thing I did was to build the model in LDD.  I have often found that an inventory list has items marked in colours which, when built, are irrelevant so building the LDD version allowed me to order cheaper internal pieces. 

    The model is big and builds well with no major traumas getting bits into place. I have modified the idea slightly by getting rid of the 1x1 round stack Hogarth character and replacing it with a minifig boy; it works well and scaling isn't too bad.  I have also added a small baseplate and a couple of trees to finish it off as a diorama. Next plan is to build the red car that was in the film and the CHRISTINE model in the MOC pages looks perfect. 

    Overall 10/10 and if you are hesitating on this one then just do it. :-)

    This one is so great it makes a lot of fun building it and it is very nice decoration for my desk :)

    Awesome build! To bad you couldn't include the dent in the head. I have an idea: a bust of the giant that's the same height with a way to wire LEDs so you could light up the eyes with optional dent and eye color.
