Topic: Minifigure Mini-Legs Animation?
Just wondering if anyone has any good techniques for animating a minifigure that has the 'short legs' piece such as the Dwarves from the new Castle series, Short Round from the Indiana Jones series, Yoda from the Star Wars series, or even the Rock Monsters from the Power Miners series (Not the same piece, but same idea). The legs don't 'swing' like normal minifig legs so you can't really do a walk cycle.
About all I can think of is having the legs standing side by side on two studs, then slowly lift and rotate the entire figure until the legs are on two studs diagonal from one another, then rotate back to the next side by side studs. Not sure how convincing this would look though. Would definately be a rather comic wobble to it...
So, what have you tried? What works? What doesn't? Any help is appreciated!
