While it’s fair to say that a lot of characters in the vast Gundam franchise run around dressed as giant robots (sorry, “mobile suits”), some of them do also use spaceships. And among the more iconic of those is probably the Archangel from ‘Cosmic Era’ spin-off Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, recreated here in mega-swooshable LEGO form by lisqr.
Brian Kescenovitz (mondayn00dle) brings us a fantastic little mecha. The first thing that struck me was the bulbous cockpit area, shaped out of bionicle pieces, it’s an awesome shape and great use of parts. The mecha also features some great piston-like details along the legs, interesting weapons, and an overall futuristic military feel I enjoy.
Last Friday the video announcement for the Exo-suit was posted, and now you can see the photo of the box art for the set and a comparison shot with Peter Reid’s original model. The set retails for $34.99 and is available August 1st. There is a highly limited supply, which means LEGO will not make more once the initial production sells out.
This spider tank by Christopher Basset looks ready to roll into combat. The tank’s pose and the camera angle really makes the model come alive.
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.

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.
