Anyone got ideas for what the other joints are? Something "mech" but cute and easy enough to use for teaching a beginner modeling skill.

 

I could do rubber accordian joints again for the hips and ankles but maybe there are other possibilities?

 

I've considered doing a standard hinge joint for the ankle. The hips are a bit more mysterious.

Over the years since this Eggbot was first posted (2011!) I've sketched a number of characters surely inspired by this model.

Here's a 3 drawing animation (cheated a little via scaling vertically) I doodled today.

(Seeing it animated definitely allows us to see where we could exaggerate and emphasize more and get some additional follow through and overlap)

 

In case it's not obvious... the character in the robo-legs is a chicken.  ;)
