Building a Galloping LEGO Horse

, , 100 Comments


We will begin by building the stand. Messed up already. 🙂 I always think about designing a more detailed stand… … but it usually just ends up being simple and black. Cover up those unsightly studs! 🙂 Building the support column. The Technic liftarm does a great job of reinforcing the column, so that it doesn’t fall apart when being used. This axle anchors the liftarm to the bricks in the stand, which gives it a very solid anchor. Time to build the horse’s body. I really like the new inverted curved slopes. The sides of the horse. Let’s build two of these! The head. And the neck. Always brush the mane of your horse. Lower neck. The tail. Side details. Time to put the body together. This arm controls the rocking of the body while the horse runs. It’s starting to look like a horse! Time to build a drive shaft. The bent arms are a way to make an arm that is 4.5 studs long. Now let’s build some legs. We’ll need four of them. The rear right leg controls all of the other motion, Lower legs. They each need a control rod to connect to the drive shaft. Now we need to add a crank to control it. Run, horsey, run! We should really add a motor. Finished. Thanks for watching/listening!

    Beautiful work, but the hooves look like they're backwards? How does it look with the hoof piece rotated through 180 and the result angled down a touch more?

    Horses don't really move both legs on one side in the same direction at the same time like that, but this is a super cool build anyways!
    I don't know if it would be a difficult change to make, but having the hind legs move together and the front legs move together would make it look much more alive and realistic.
    Camels for example take a step with both left legs at the same time, then the right legs at the same time and so on, when horses move you'll actually see the hind and front legs get pretty close to each other in the middle.
    Still though, absolutely amazing, this is nothing but a tiny bit of criticism on an amazing work. I love it.

    I don't know if this is quite a gallop. I'm not an expert in horse gait, but I know at a gallop, all four hooves leave the ground and fold in. Also, the back bends. This is perhaps a trot or a canter.

    Why add red and white Legos if you were just gonna cover it with black? That was a huge waste of time dude
