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.

Friday Night Fights: In pursuit of Exo-llence

Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another round of Friday Night Fights. Tonight we join an ongoing fray, as the LEGO world continues to be gripped with Exo-suit mania. Hec, even the animals are getting in on the action! But let’s up the ante and give this a cinematic twist, shall we?

In the R-rated corner, we have a recreation of an A.P.U. from The Matrix Trilogy by Niki Dregant:

While over in the PG-rated corner, lurks a Unikitty-piloted Cloud Cuckoo Land Mech by Martin Gee:

As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding, by way of comment, who will stomp their way to glory, and who is destined for the scrap heap. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, Devil in the architecture Details, Nick Barrett’s Georgian town house prevailed with a monumental score of 11-0. Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!

Vengeful Gods

The Philippine LUG challenge is rapidly yielding some stellar results, as Nannan’s post below reminded me to blog this awesome build. Lu Sim offers this fantastically different take on the same Aztec Mech theme, with a more intimidatingly mechanoid and regal design. If this guy showed up and told me to offer up some blood sacrifices, I would totally go along with it.

We Can Do It!

I built a factory diorama for my T-47 Sheridan walking tank a few weeks ago. Of course, as the style of the build is alternate WWII, the workers in the factory are all female. As it’s Labor Day here in the US, it seemed like the perfect day to post this diorama, and celebrate the achievements of the American worker.

Critters in Mech Suits (CiMS)

We’ve seen frogs. We’ve seen turtles. We’ve seen all sorts of critters enhanced for battle with custom mech suits. But I have yet to see a snake–let alone a mech suit designed to do so much destruction. Because guns for legs is pretty awesome.

This dangerous snake suit is brought to you by fujiia.

I can’t close this post, though, without pointing out her brilliant Dolphin Mech Suit, which looks like it’s a few gears away from being a steampunk Dolphin Mech Suit. Now THAT I want to see!

The Northern Front – mecha in the snow

Fresh from his Friday Night Fight’s victory, Jonas (LEGOLIZE IT MAN) is back with this snow bound Mecha:

While the Mech itself is fantastic with its lovely colours and stickering, what really sets this apart for me is the addition of the beautiful micro trucks and outpost. I feel cold just looking at it.

Wiffy Metal Slug

(FLAVIO) has been building a series of characters/vehicles using the old hockey big-fig helmets. He calls them Wiffys, and this is the first I’ve spotted. It certainly won’t be the last, though, as these are adorable. The Metal Slug vibe reads perfectly for this one, and I especially like the “tiptoe” pose.

Life’s Better With a Lego Titan

Nick’s got the small arms of Titanfall covered, but when it’s time to call in the big guns, you need this Atlas by Sam Wormuth (-infomaniac-).

The staff here is sadly unsavvy to the details of Titanfall, but it doesn’t take an expert to appreciate the level of detailing on this thing. You can practically feel the ground shake just by looking at this killer mech.

Amazing LEGO Hemlok BF-R Rifle from Titanfall

Nick Jensen (Nick Brick) has long been the master of life-sized LEGO built guns, and his latest is from the game Titanfall. While I haven’t managed to play my copy of Titanfall yet, I know enough to say this is an amazingly good looking and functional build.

Check out the full set of images for more angles and a complete breakdown of this incredibly detailed model. And don’t miss all the other great stuff by Nick that we’ve featured here previously, including a life-sized sniper rifle, sticky detonator and battle rifle from Halo.
