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 →
LEGO Mecha models on The Brothers Brick | Page 3
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.
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!
At first glance I thought kwi-chang’s latest mecha has a severe case of bad posture, but according to the builder the pose represents the “hold after landing”. If you’re not familiar with kwi-chang’s work, I humbly suggest his HMT-005 Jagannath_01 as a good place to start.
I really miss the heyday of Japanese LEGO mecha builders a few years ago, where it seemed like a stellar new mech appeared online almost constantly. Growing up with Gundam and Macross on TV in Japan (well, when I was allowed to watch TV by my missionary parents…), giant robots piloted by impossibly chiseled youth Continue reading →
Fir his first major project of 2013, rongYIREN has created a mechanical version of the extinct “terror bird,” complete with a minifig pilot and an engine in the back.
My crony from Philadelphia Carter Baldwin returns to TBB with his latest mecha, the NATO ‘Gorgon’ Mobile Frame. Based on concept art by flyingdebris, Carter brings the futuristic war machine to life with some very inventive techniques. The only question remaining is which gorgon this respresents…Stheno, Euryale or their more famous sister Medusa?
Timothy Pendarvis ZephyrChaos has an interesting new mecha he calls “Soren”. Although the builder does not say as much, I suspect it is honor of reclusive Girondist Soren Roberts. It does have a striking resemblance to Roberts after one of his infamous paint-thinner binges. Perhaps I’m wrong though, Timothy could be referring to nineteenth century Continue reading →
Flickr user Garry_rocks has been churning out an endless supply of stunning mecha and hardsuit designs ever since he joined in November. I tend to overlook strictly virtual creations more than I probably should, and Garry reinforces that I should pay closer to attention to LEGO Digitial Designer (LDD) models more often. The fact that Continue reading →
