Tag Archives: Mecha

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.

Dragon piloted mecha

We’ve seen a lot of mecha and drones recently, but this one by Lu Sim (Messymaru) is just too cool to pass up. It has some great shaping and articulation, and I love the little trans-neon-green highlights. But what totally made me stop and clap was the mecha’s pilot: a LEGO dragon. Yes boys and girls, this dragon mecha, has a dragon inside!

I wasn’t the only one to think that dragon mecha was a great idea – Garry built a green dragon mecha too.

WALL-E, WALL-E and another WALL-E

It’s not the first time we’ve blogged a WALL-E, and it probably won’t be our last either. After a slight diversion with BURN-E in Nov, the movie’s adorable main character is back this week as three different builders given us their take on this little fella:

First up, is the largest from David Hensel (Legonardo Davidy):
Wall-E

Evan (Lego Junkie) chimes in with his mini version:
Wall-E

And finally the one that started this week’s WALL-E bandwagon, Tyler (Legohaulic) gives us his rendition:
Space Dance

And a bonus link – Evan also has a fun Microbe Obliterator; M-O to clean up after his WALL-E.

TBB presents an Oldie But Goodie – Peregrine

We at The Brothers Brick were recently talking about whether there should be a statute of limitations on blogging a model. We obviously want to keep the majority of our posts fresh and new, but we all agreed that there are a lot of models in people’s back catalogues that deserve the spot light. Whether you have been around the community since LUGNET or are new this year, we think everyone will appreciate seeing these again or for the first time.

I will start us off with this classic by The Grandpappy, the Peregrine Multi-Role Starfighter. This has long been one of my favourite starfighters of all time. The combination of space superiority fighter and mecha will make any geek giddy. I also love the idea of treating the mecha frame as a weapons component as opposed to a permanent part of the design.

And I am always a giant sucker for an ordnance loadout shot:

So keep your eyes peeled for further OBG posts from time to time and join us in a trip down memory lane.

Into the Aether

At the risk of pigeonholing myself as the guy who only blogs mecha, check out the latest build from the reclusive but always delightful Jas Nagra (J5N)

Few people build chunky shapes as elegantly as Jas, with a fluidity of style that gives a vaguely alien vibe to many of his mecha. Of particular note in this build are the deceptively boxy-yet-complex radar packages on the left shoulder and the Zarki-influenced cannon on the right.

Night of the Living Drone

Chris (Ironsniper) brings us the Циклоп, a strange twisted amalgam of parts that have no business fitting together as well as they do.

And too cool not to mention is the Ravager, a more conventional drone posted by Chris a few weeks ago.

This is also your weekly reminder that the madness that is Droneuary is in full swing! I speak from personal experience when I say that these bite-size bots are much trickier to build than they look.
