Lego Half-life 2: Combine Strider Synth by Cryptdidical Lego Half-life 2: Combine Strider Synth by Cryptdidical
Had this built for a few good years now. I was so impressed with myself when I got it completed, and was thankful for having adequate pieces to make it look fairly accurate. 
As many might know, I am obsessed with The War of the Worlds by HG Wells. And I also love the Half-life series deeply, so when they include Alien Tripedal enemies, I loved it even more and couldn't resist making one out of Lego.
In time, It will need some updating. I would like to give it proper joints in its legs sometime just for pose-ability sake. But its simplicity is endearing to me.
Enjoy.

*squeee!*

The only thing I'd say it needs, down on the bottoms of its feet the Striders have several spiky bits. It might also help stabilize it for standing.

>_> now needs D0g to come along and rip its little brain out...

I've tried all kinds of various ways to make the spines look as less rediculous as possible. And also because I am limited in pieces, it makes it more difficult. In time, when I acquire more pieces I will be sure to add to it :)

Making dog is anothe challenge I am up for.
Thanks for the kind words!

no problem. Did a search for Gman and loved that one too. <-- is Zekiran on the steam forums if you're there. I'd definitely think you should show these off over there in the hl2 section. Very neat.

From what I've read, the Combine Striders were inspired by the Martian Tripods. Either way, they make for a very awesome and sometimes frustrating enemy.
