Get AMPD Up!

It’s super-fantastic-giant-robot fun time! Today’s featured giant robot is AMPED (Autonomous Multipurpose Drone), the brainchild of Marco Tagliaferri (Tagl), and it makes my teeth giggle. The model was a year in the making, has 25 geared points of articulation and will be displayed at the 10th annual Bricking Bavaria this November in Munich. I confess that I didn’t realize how far back Marco went with the hobby or how far he has come. Marco is obviously an O.G.


I can’t stop looking at the throwing pose, it’s absolutely perfect. As usual, constant reader, it has been a blast being your weekend DJ. Have a great week and I’ll see you at the fights next Friday.

Kristi McWii (customBRICKS) returns to the Brothership with a study in minimalism featuring everyone’s favorite cyborg law enforcer from the 1987 film RoboCop. I know some of you don’t like free-floating parts in your models but I’m confident you can look past it and appreciate this immediately recognizable silhouette. Thank you for your cooperation.


Sunday Mecha Roundup

No, I’m not talking about Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztl├ín, 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.

We begin our nerdy exploration with “Fire Warrior Revised” from a builder who never fails to entertain, Nate Daly, who adds a lovely decorative base at no extra charge.

Next we take a quick trip to Poland with Piotr H. and his “Prosthetic Commando” that puts those green Toy Story soldier helmets to great use.

Then it’s off to the digital dimension to palaver with the prolific Garry_Rocks about his latest effort ““Lazarus” Oni Class Mecha.
