Oedipus update

I have a couple new developments to report about Oedipus.

Firstly, the 1st LDD rough draft of the computer is complete.  Here are pics of him in action.


Practicing his Iron Man/kung-fu/whatever you want to call it.

Hand details.  His thumb is on the bottom.  He doesn't have a wrist.  Notice the gun built into his hand (flashlight if you want to think of something more G-rated).
Leg details.  Part of his "organs" are exposed.  His foot can move separately from the rest of the leg.

Remember in the story how the computer was constructed out of various different computer parts?  Some details of how that description plays into the Lego version of the computer.
That black box in the middle of his forearm is a computer.
In his armpit he has that microchip/panel thingie that you can find whenever you open most computers.  Although it doesn't look like one, that slope on his arm is a speaker.
His head, of course, is an oversized monitor.
Minifig to the computer size comparison.  This is a rather unfortunate flaw in my model of the computer. See, in the story, the computer was about 2.5 to 3x the height of a man.  Here he's taller than 4 of them...
