Here is a clockwork knight minifig I built today...I was partially inspired by the Brick-built legs posted previously, by Tanotrooper..

The pics are here...




Thanks, please tell me what you think...

HAHA! This is really cool. This is my favorite so far this year. I think this should be a featured MOC.

That is cool! I can picture this clanking away through the halls of a castle somewhere(what a rucus that would be). So much personality for something without even facial expressions.

Inspiring build!

Very cool. Not only would it work well as its' intended use, but it would also work well as a ornate statue, as it looks to me to be slightly taller than a normal minifig.

Well done.

Nice. I was trying to think of something like this, and it's been bugging my for awhile. It's a better version of the one I made, I think I'll borrow the design.

It is one of your best yet - very clever.

Very nice. This is a hit for sure. I could see this being used in one of Fry Slayer's KK2 series comics, very funny indeed. :D

I really like this. It would work great as a "suit of armor" setup inside a Scooby-Doo cartoon. The pointed feet are a great finishing touch!

Brilliantly imaginative both in its conception and construction. A great creation! 8)

Nice compact design. It kind of has a cartoon-ish quality. Good Job.
