Okay, so that's the fully assembled (but incomplete) Space Bridge... how about we look at some of the embedded features of the thing, next?
So you open up the top of the second tower and inside is a play area -- a gladiatorial arena!
Gladiatorial games and arenas have been part of Transformers lore since the 1980s (especially with the story, "State games"), so having one in my Space Bridge was very important to me.
The whole thing is built around the idea of it all opening up. Used a lot of huge Character Building smooth plates to build this one.
In the photos above you can see the playbill and the score card for the arena. You can actually fold up the arena with most of the Kreons inside -- the only area you can't keep a character stored is in the actual gladiatorial pit itself.
The next area underneath the gladiatorial arena is also really special:
The Dancitron! Woo! How about we get some more detail shots of what's going on inside?
There's a dance floor, some lights on the walls, a bar and of course a little stage.
I also built a Dancitron speaker-system thingie that's designed to have an Autobot strung up to it! Woo!
The set of photos above is showing a feature of the Dancitron that doesn't really show up very well on camera -- or rather I'm not a good enough photographer to capture it.
I built a light brick into one of the supporting columns of this floor, and the light brick sits on two turntable pieces. This allows you to turn the brick as you light it up, letting you create a disco strobe effect inside the Dancitron.
Just for fun let's finished up with some pictures of the Dancitron being a bit more populated. And yes, the entire thing can close up with all those Kreons inside.
