This robot by Aaron Williams (m_o_n_k_e_y) is creatively out of the norm, being gangly with ludicrously long arms and sporting a techy bow-tie.
A new creation from me, though it’s actually a year old. For some time, I’ve imagined that my Iron Mountain Legion creations needed an enemy. Not just an enemy, but a worth match, beyond the stereotypical post apocalyptic marauders and mutants. My intention was to build something that looked like it belonged in the same world, but with a clearly different design aesthetic. I hope I’ve succeeded, but will let our readers be the judge.
The name means “Flea,” at least if Google translate has steered me right. The shape certainly reminds me of the tiny biting insect, anyway
I’d like to imagine that Gary (Garry) was repeatedly saying “I’m the Juggernaut” in his best Vinnie Jones voice as he assembled this. I love the use of a bionicle mask for armor on a minifig hardsuit. It looks great, and although this is a virtual MOC, the connection looks legit. If I had any of these masks, I’d be tempted to try it out! The choice of head for the pilot is also a very clever addition, really making use of the eye-slots.
Forest King (KingBrick) rings in the new year in a big way with his Grizzly Siege Drone. Combining the elegant stride of a Vertical Tank with a menacingly complicated sensor and weapons loadout straight out of a Blomkamp film, this mechanical monstrosity looks well-equipped to tackle any dystopia you care to throw at it.
Forest is also taking this moment to kick off the first annual Droneuary, a month dedicated to our bipedal robot friends both large and small.
I missed this MaK creation, when Kosmas Santosa ( first posted it. Fortunately, he’s followed up with a nice little scene, giving me a chance to blog this cool mecha. The tool cart and gas can are both nice details that help make the scene. The builder also found a nice chunk of broken down wall for background, it looks great.
Check out this awesome mech clad in active camo armor by brick genius Cole Blaq. While Cole did use just a few modified parts in pursuit of a totally transparent machine, the build is chock full of unusual parts and clever techniques. Anyone who has ever attempted to build a complicated form using a severely limited palette will appreciate the level of skill it takes to pull off something recognizable, let alone this cool.
I don’t think a sadistic little boy would want to pull the wings off of this bug. He just may get a missile or a laser bolt up his jacksie if he tried.
If this sort of thing is what floats your boat, you better head on over to rongYIREN’s photostream because it is overflowing with goodies like this.
Every so often I come the realization that there are builders out there that get overlooked. And quite often I am the one doing the overlooking. Case in point being Magic Tuba Pixie.
I was browsing through his photostream while on my lunch break today and just generally admiring the builds. But it was then that I realized I had rarely commented or acknowledged them. These were all models that I had seen before, but I simply had not made an effort to voice my appreciation of them. So now I am making up for lost time and want to share a few of my favourites.
