The frog mecha-army leaps into action!

Everyone’s got their favourite LEGO element. It might be the popular headlight brick, or something completely rogue like a Clikits flower. (Hey, each to their own!) I have a sneaky feeling that some of Simon Liu‘s favourite pieces are those pertaining to frogs. Why? Well, he’s listed as a Frog King in a group on Flickr, for starters. And the Frog King has assembled an amphibian army to do his bidding! This exosuit for the rank-and-file, for instance, houses a Super Mario frog hat.

Every army needs some top brass to croak orders, and that’s the role this buff-looking chap takes. Getting definite drill sergeant vibes from this one. That’s a Duplo frog outfit in there, by the way.

And if you thought a Duplo frog was a maverick parts choice… If you were a babe in arms in the late 1990s (or if you had one), you might remember LEGO Primo. That’s where the pilot for this heavy weapons guy comes from! It’s such a deep cut, it’s probably my favourite of the lot.

But of course, no frog army would be complete without something for the original frog element introduced in 2001 (and unchanged since). There’s a bit of a size difference to some of its comrades. Be careful not to get stepped on!
