We all love a good LEGO Gundam or Macross mecha, but LEGO builders everywhere are also creating excellent models of their own designs. Have a look at them here.

You can never have too many Canadarms

Jason Corlett has just shared this beefy Overseer mech, featuring arms large and small for any industrial work you might need.

Overseer Assault Mech (No Head)

While I’m partial to the headless variant shown above, Jason has whipped up a number of different designs to show what the mech looks like with a wide variety of heads.

Party on, Victorian dudes

Serbian builder Milan Sekiz created this fearsome trio of steampunk hardware entitled Steam Party. Individually each piece stands out on its own. But with the addition of some greenery, wreckage and tire tracks, the whole ensemble is definitely greater that the sum of its parts.

I particularly love the tank (aka “Mr. Rust and two smoking barrels”) with it’s earthy color scheme, brick-heavy studs-hidden design, aggressive details, and of course those tracks! Check out Milan’s Flickr stream for lots of hero shots and closeups…

 

Tom Rex, Space Dinosaur

Adam Dodge shows us that the meteor didn’t annihilate the dinosaurs, it carried them to the stars. This build combines two of my favorite things, to the utter delight of my inner eight year old. I’m looking forward to seeing the new possibilities for remixing dinosaurs with the Jurassic World sets.

The cubicle of the future

If you’re gonna operate heavy machinery all day, you might as well be comfortable. And the operator of this Walker Mech by Flickr member nobu_tary has clearly gone to great lengths to trick out his mobile workplace, by adding a sporty bucket seat and a ton of other gear and personal effects, giving this build a great “lived in” feel.

Check out all the angles on this sweet mech to see how many more details you can spot. With all that equipment, it kinda reminds me of that old board game Buckaroo!
