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…
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.
Zi Zy has been consistently churning out fantastic small-scale mecha and creating scenes for them that mix Lego and more traditional model-building elements. The result is an amazing hybrid that imbues the Lego models with an unusual degree of realism.
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!
Galaktek has a long-running series of animals piloting mecha, but this penguin themed one might be my favorite so far. Even in robot form this penguin can’t fly, but who cares about that when you can glide along the ice with this level of panache?
Mike Nieves’s (retinence) Protoman creation from Megaman is instantly recognizable and can strike an awesome pose. The variety of large curved slopes works out well in a creation of this scale.
I’ve seen a lot of mash-ups, but this is the first time I’ve seen a Gundam crossed with a Star Wars ship. This hybrid by Kevin Ryhal (MDSWIM) looks useful to the rebel resistance, but I’m not sure how it can bring down the Death Star.
Moko delivers another sweet build with this adorable little Gundam. He’s just so cute, I couldn’t resist posting him. Plus he was pointing that big gun at my head.
Leave it to Pascal (Pasukaru76) to see Bioshock when someone says Ma.K. (a popular mecha style with a unique visual characteristics). This Big-Daddy inspired mech is uuber cool, and is even accompanied by a miniature mechanized Little Sister.
Dane gives us a sweet triple play of great builds, with a bleak monochrome style perfectly suited to a dreary rainy Monday.
The unexpected star of the show is this twistedly twee whaling ship, chasing the last of the pygmy whales across the cold ocean.
On the other end of the grey spectrum is this sleek mech, a study in clean design and smooth lines, every inch exuding brutal intent.
