I really miss the heyday of Japanese LEGO mecha builders a few years ago, where it seemed like a stellar new mech appeared online almost constantly. Growing up with Gundam and Macross on TV in Japan (well, when I was allowed to watch TV by my missionary parents…), giant robots piloted by impossibly chiseled youth still hold a special place in my heart.
Thankfully, I can still get my Japanese LEGO mecha fix from builders like LEGOROBO (legorobo:waka on Flickr). His AFA-8 Cynomys walker is full of crazy angles and believable details whose purpose I can only imagine. Just check out those toes!
