Flickr user legorobo:waka has posted his wa F8 Lanius, a truly sweet mecha that hits all the right notes. It has classic anime styling, great details, articulation and best of all, houses a minfig pilot. In particular, the details I like best are the feet/ landing gear, the hands and guns, and the classic Japanese style Continue reading →
LEGO Mecha models on The Brothers Brick | Page 2
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.
No, that’s not a spelling mistake in the title. Cole Blaq‘s Packmann 850 clearly works in a warehouse packing (or unpacking) shelves. This is LEGO mecha design at its cleanest.
Soren Roberts has been without bricks for a while, but it looks like he’s got them in his hot little hands again. Which is great for all lovers of LEGO Mecha. Not only is his Type K a great model, but Soren shows yet again why he’s one of the kings of the genre with Continue reading →
At least, that’s how I remember the adage. Halfbeak has posted a creation on Flickr that makes fantastic use of stickers to add contrast and detail. I’m always a fan of checker patterns, and the stripe on the helmet is a great touch. The aesthetic reminds me of THX-1138, while the name (Koma Police) has Continue reading →
LEGOLIZE IT MAN proves once again that he is a master at building robots with a brilliant amount of detail. ROLF is a superb mish-mash of 3A and Ma.K with a nice sprinkling of Aliens. One factor that really stands out for me is the amount of visible anti-studs, something that I try and stay Continue reading →
Brian Kescenovitz (aka mondayn00dle) is back at it, building more of the best Mecha around. This time he’s got this aggressive grey beast called the Weaver. It even fits a figure completely inside–which, come to think of it, may make it a large exo-suit. At what point does an exo-suit become a mech? Whatever you Continue reading →
My tag line may be a bad joke, but it’s by far the worst thing about this post. Juzu has posted a pretty cool looking mecha over on Flickr, and taken advantage of his local weather for a change in scenery. The build itself makes fantastic use of stickers to add detail to a form Continue reading →
This post comes two months after Erik (Lemon_boy) first posted his Boyetz and eight days after he posted a trio of them. The lateness is, however, not my fault as flickr keeps dropping people from my contact list, including Erik. This robotic beast has fantastic character, and shows that you can leave studs exposed and Continue reading →
Well a 400k piece castle and a drawing robot are tough acts to follow, but this was simply too nice not to share. Not only is Dane E’s (Mechanekton) Fuchikoma a really great example of the iconic A.I. machine, but the setting that he placed it in is absolutley stunning. By utilizing a clean sterile Continue reading →
Shannon Sproule continues his ongoing storyline of Battle for the Moon with this gloriously fun Battle Mech for the US forces. Last year Shannon had used the retro robot collecti-figs as large mecha within’ his A.T.L.A.S. Death Ray Complex micro-space build. You will often see builders expand upon a previous model, but seeing micro builds Continue reading →
Torokimasa brings you your daily dose of mecha, straight out of Japan, with his “Blue rose”.
Japanese builders make mecha like Canadians make maple syrup. Now I don’t think mecha would taste nearly as good on my waffles, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t love them equally. Flickr user Dak Yuki proves my point with his Armored Core: Be sure to browse through the full photoset for all the cool Continue reading →
Here’s a fun little build by Andrew Lee. He’s managed to pack a great deal of detail into a small package. I’m a fan of energy axes and circular magazines, so the armaments leave me happy. It looks like Andrew posted a whole team of bots last night, so make sure to check out his Continue reading →
This morning, I came across two mecha models, from two different builders, that share a common attribute. Their legs are all quite thin, one might even say elegant (or flimsy). Personally, I have trouble keeping mecha with thick legs and joints standing, so I really appreciate the effort that went into these. First, there’s the Continue reading →
Moko must have depleted his entire stash of chromed LEGO elements to make this bling-ed out mecha. All I can say is, “Oooo, shiny!” As a side note, I have heard that chromed elements cost 20 times their non-chromed counter parts. Pricey!
