Once again, I have spotted something, and then waited a week to post it. Once again, I still think it’s worth the post, and worth waiting for. I give you Red Boots, a mecha by Torokimasa. The builder had blended smooth curves and chunky greebles to great effect. He’s also made nice use of Bionicle/Hero Factory bits, especially at the knees. I bet this would be really fun to pose in an inner-city battle.

On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, Ships of the fleet, Showing that size doesn’t always matter the Corvette Beatrix won 4-2! Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!
War. War never changes, but sometimes it’s reimagined. In this case, Kosmas Santosa has taken the Titanfall video game Mech and placed it back into World War 2 with this chillingly well execute build and backdrop.
Most people would be extremely satisfied building such an awesome mech, but Kosmas has taken this to entirely new level by adding such a stunningly built background:
It’s a good week for small mecha, as hot on the heels of the previous gundams we have a double fistful of pintsize brawlers.
Just because it’s not friday doesn’t mean we can’t spill a little blood. Vote your winner below and we’ll see you fight fans another week for the next pay-per-view Two for Tuesday bloodbath.
This Bionicle Gundam by Micah Berkoff (Arkov.) has all the right proportions, color blocking, and a sickly slick scythe.
This isn’t the first model of a Reaper featured here on The Brothers Brick, but it still warrants highlighting. Ben Caulkins (Benny Brickster) had done a great job of capturing the look of the largest space borne Reapers in the Mass Effect games. The creepy legs and eyes of the machine are perfectly represented.
Through the leaning pose of this futuristic rider, and the outstretched limbs of his steed, Hungarian builder and artist Kristof (legoalbert) manages to impart a beautiful sense of motion to this creation using relatively few bricks. It’s not hard to visualize the leaping gait of this long-legged robot as it efficiently navigates the obstacles of some other-worldly landscape.
But the poetic backstory to this figure really completes the piece and leaves me wanting to see more of the savage world in Kristof’s imagination:
“Dark cloaked shadow-men patrol the wilderness of the Afterworld, roaming around on their tall artificial mounts. Swiftly rushing trough the densest of the forests, zig-zagging on the streets of the dead cities, they’re only vulnerable to the Vultures of the Plain, out in the endless grassfields, where the Insectmen rule.”
Dane Erland (Mechanekton) has been ladling out delicious servings of mecha goodness in a distinctly stubby and bulky style. The most recent of these has a name best not repeated in either polite or impolite company, so I’ll let the picture do the talking.
And harking back to a simpler time (aka four months ago), Dane posted this duo of deadly tin cans brimming with character.
This sand strider by Djokson is one lean and mean fighting machine. The simulated rib cage and the dark-red accented head are very unique features, not to mention the green orb and that big pokey stick.
