We post a lot of LEGO mecha here on The Brothers Brick, and even though I’m the main culprit I’ll admit that most of them are bipedal, humanoid contraptions that all blend together after a while — the style inspired by anime shows like Evangelion and Gundam. But Moko takes a very different approach with his latest mecha, built for an event in Japan, which is more of a hardsuit or exoskeleton than a true mecha.
Moko himself says that it was inspired more by military helicopters than “Japanese style” robots. A minifig operates the exoskeleton, and I love the jet engines and helicopter blades on the shoulders. You can see more photos on Moko’s blog.
