I guess September is the month of Moko. He continues his streak of amazing builds with the Silver Moon, a gorgeous mecha covered in silver and gold elements. It’s hard to pull off a complete look when certain colors are limited to a few element types. Well, hard for the rest of us mere mortals, clearly not hard for a master like Moko.
Indonesian builder Toto Hermanto‘s latest mech is this super cool blue and grey machine. With those split legs, this mech brings a bit of a different aesthetic from many of the mechs I see, which is refreshing, and Toto’s added some great greebles to it.
I spotted the first of these new mecha by Carter Baldwin ([Carter]) last week, but didn’t manage to blog it then. Fortunately, good things come to those who wait, and Carter has now posted an interesting variant on the first model. They’re both worth checking out, from the ball shaped cockpit and frame that stays the same, to the decorations that make them so different. My favorite is the pink bunny decoration, presumably inspired by Sucker Punch.
I’ve wanted to try my hand at some alternative WWII vehicles for quite a long time. Long enough, in fact, that I originally planned to use sand green, then dark green, then sand green again (as these color became available, or had new parts show up). Of course, when I finally built something, I ended up using olive green.
The idea with this creation is a sort of “what if” scenario. In this case, what if WWII lasted longer, and militaries started fielding diesel driven mecha. Far-fetched, perhaps, but it certainly seemed like fun.
I also tried something new (for me) with this creation, and photographed it only in a scene. I’m hoping this presentation is pleasing to our readership.
This sweet mobile fighting platform by Garry features the same cockpit and hull, and then adds legs, rotors, and whatnot onto it to turn it into different weaponized vehicles, all of which look totally BA.
No, I’m not talking about Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán, although that would make fascinating subject matter for LEGO models, no I’m talking about that sub-genre of Sci-Fi that features giant robots and the people that tame them. So sit back, relax and let your inner thirteen year old enjoy this collection of ten rock-em sock-em war machines from builders both malevolent and benign.
As someone who only saw the trailer for Elysium, I recognize this HDF bot by Ethan (MrMαcy). It’s pretty accurate compared to the reference, and now we just need a decal expert to take it to the next level.
With what just might be the scariest LEGO Joker I’ve ever seen (and as a mech, no less), this model by oLaF appears to be only one part of a multi-stage diorama collaboration between several builders. I can’t wait to see the whole thing, but in the meantime, this segment is worth taking a look at by itself.
Welcome back fight fans, to Sin City Nevada for another low-blow edition of Friday Night Fights! Tonight’s bout pits traditional vs. digital styles in an all out struggle for supremacy in the ring. Let’s go to the tale of the tape:
As usual, constant reader, you are tasked with deciding the outcome of this pugilistic endeavor by way of comment. On the last edition of Friday Night Fights, Iron Builder Rematch, FNF history was made as the judges called the bout a draw. Maybe a highly acclaimed panel of turbo-nerds really is the best way to decide The Iron Builder, or maybe this was the closest IB competition to date. Tune in next week for another action packed edition of Friday Night Fights!
