ZP-R - Free Poplock Toy

It's been a while, but here's the first of four new Poplock Super Combiner Series 2 bots. ZP-R (zipper) has giant, compound eyes and is very swooshable when you fold back the wings.

In a week or two, I'll have a photo of the next one up, and each of the last two will show up shortly after. In the meantime, click on the link below to get ZP-R for free! Series 2 will have a couple of pages of bonuses as well, wait till you see!

Poplock Freebies - 03

Fresh off the assembly line, it's the Poplock Freebie pack, number 3! This one-page set features two new Face Blocks with two new sets of legs and both leg sets are easily used to augment the details of larger robots from the Super Combiners Series 1 set.

Print out these characters on thick card stock. I used 65 lb. color card stock for these bots, but you can use plain, white card stock too. Easier to use markers or pencils to color those bots!

R-MZ Three Page Build

This is Rn-dR (Run-deer), my first Super Combiners 3-page build. I combined 2 orange and 1 yellow R-MZ bots to make this long-legged loper. Another feature that keeps this creature standing tall - a single foot/antenna piece acts as a support strut between each set of legs. This gives Rn-dR a springy way to stay upright. Zoom in on the pic above to see the strut located between the front legs!
Rn-dR has more than a little skill in balancing.
Okay, that's enough showing off now. Can you do anything  useful?
The Face Blocks enjoy a quick mode of transportation. 

Get a copy of the Poplocks Super Combiners Series 1 collection and you can make your own Rn-dR, or try to make something even bigger! You can purchase and download these templates by clicking the button below. You get four robot templates plus a page of bonus parts! Print out as many as you can make!

Even more images from Susan Blue Robot! I am completely delighted by the work she has done on these bots. Be sure to visit her blog to check out more Poplocks pics and to see all of her other fine creations!

Jim Camenga found a most interesting way to capture every angle of his Gupp-E toy! I want my next apartment to have all walls with mirrors like this!

Poplock Freebies - 02

Here comes the second set of freebie Face Blocks! More parts are packed on this sheet, giving each Face Block four poseable feet! These blocks are, again, based on the RM-Z template from Super Combiners Series 1

This PDF is seriously PACKED with parts, but don't worry, all of the parts are margined to print out on US Letter or A4 sizes of paper.

Use two feet together to make a gripping claw for larger bots!
