Get ready pilots! Bushido Bots has constructed this impressive mech, inspired by the machines featured in the game, Titanfall. The muscular, rounded form of the mech is created through the use of a variety of sloped parts, including a large amount of wedge pieces. The backpack has some nice curvature around the outer casing thanks to the use of vehicle mudguards. Armed with a multi barreled rifle, cannons and missile pods, this mech is packing some serious firepower. Watch out for this one-eyed wonder on the battlefield!
What has Brothers Brick alumnus Nick Jensen been up to lately? At last check, he was cradling a fat-bottomed old lady in his arms. We’ve all been there, right? Now he has built Viper’s Northstar Titan from Titanfall 2. Viper is one of the bosses fought in the Titanfall 2 campaign and pilots this Northstar Titan, which has the ability to fly, hover and carry a Plasma Railgun. Transparent Technic beams give the illusion that this model is hovering while also offering it stability.
Games in the Titanfall universe are some of the best first-person shooter games I’ve played, and the surprise free-to-play battle royale Apex Legends is no exception. 20 squads of three enter, one survives, making for a tense spinoff game. My favorite sidearm from Titanfall is the Wingman revolver, and it returns in Apex with increased effectiveness. So, of course, I just had to create a LEGO Wingman for the LEGO gaming arsenal.
The most interesting feature of the Wingman is its reload function. Throwing a switch above the trigger expands the black rails and unlocks the ammo cylinder for removal. I couldn’t get the function switch-activated, but all other parts work including the cylinder lock. Read more and see a video of the Wingman’s features
The fun, fast-paced action of Titanfall 2 multiplayer is what hooks me in, but with my latest LEGO Titan I wanted to show appreciation for its well crafted single player campaign. To make a Titan build unique to campaign styling, I chose to build Kane’s Scorch Titan, the first boss Jack Cooper and BT-7274 fight in the campaign. Kane was like a stereotypical multiplayer gamer: overconfident, calling his opponents “scrub,” and easily defeated.
Shortly before the release of Titanfall 2 in October 2016, talented builder Marius Herrmann uploaded his first Titan build of Ronin. After that he went on to recreate the rest of the mechs from the game, but stopped short of Scorch. But now Scorch has been completed, and it may be the best of the bunch.
Like the other Titans, Scorch was done in his base colour, which translated into mostly light tan. But the amount of added detail from black, dark tan and a few printed pieces make this far from boring. The overall shaping is just about perfect but it’s the small details that make this build so incredible. This continues around the back of the build and you can spend a long time staring at this and pointing out all the great parts usage. The only thing that’s really missing is the thermite launcher, but that’s more than forgiven here.
Marius Herrmann has built several excellent LEGO Titans from Titanfall 2, including Ion and Northstar, along with Ronin. Now, he shows some love for the campaign’s protagonist, the lovable Marauder Corps death machine that is BT-7274. BT’s lightweight frame was captured accurately using orange, white, and custom spraypainted military green bricks. His model is detailed down to an array of individual rockets ready to fire from the shoulder-mounted missile pods.
Since completing my LEGO Ronin Titan back in August 2016, I received numerous requests for a building guide for him. After reconstructing him in LEGO Digital Designer and photographing steps requiring techniques that stress parts, I present step-by-step directions to build your own Ronin. Take a look at the parts list, then follow the video below and tear up the Frontier with a brand new broadsword-wielding mech.
Titanfall 2 added several new weapons to its line-up of futuristic firearms, and my favorites are the multi-barreled weapons like the Alternator for their uniqueness. My LEGO replica of the Alternator started with the grip and mag well, as this area was the most difficult to build for two reasons: First, I wanted the letter “A” shape the body, mag well, and grip form to be spot on. Second, the mag well is sand blue on the in-game model, which has a limited selection of LEGO elements to work with. Considering these limitations, I think my solutions work well for the look of the submachine gun in-game.
Though I favor the insanely fast pace and competitive nature of Titanfall 2 multiplayer, its single player mode was a pleasant surprise, and its middle mission “Effect and Cause” is an instant classic. When you retrieve this device and slip it on your left hand, the prompt “Press A to time travel” caught me off guard. Several other players have praised this level, and after building a wearable helmet I wanted to build more wearable objects in full size, so I thought this time travel device would be a fun build.
The Alternator SMG model has a moving trigger, sliding ambidextrous charging handle, and removable magazine. See all these functions demonstrated with some time traveling effects in the following two minute video.
Marius Herrmann continues to impress with his LEGO Titanfall Titan builds. Adding to a series started by Titanfall’s Stryder and the sequel’s Ronin are Ion and Northstar. First, let’s highlight Ion, a Titan specializing in distributing power to various laser abilities. Marius has built mostly lightweight Titan frames in the past, but his skills work well with a slightly more armored mech. What really caught my eye on Ion is the perfect color choices for the Splitter Rifle.
Equally impressive is Marius’s model of my most played Titan frame in Titanfall 2, the hovering railgun sniper Northstar. The array of massive jump-jets, the spherical sensor package, and the rungs on each leg are my favorite details on this Titan build.
Following up his excellent Stryder Titan model, Marius Herrmann presents a fantastic LEGO rendition of the Ronin Titan from Titanfall 2. His build of the sword-wielding close quarters Titan frame was built using only the limited angles one sees the Ronin in the various Titanfall 2 trailers as reference, and his research paid off with a highly detailed and intricate model with a spot on color scheme.
Titanfall still is one of the most fun and intense gaming experiences I’ve had, and every titan I drop in to battle feels like the first. It should be no surprise that I am also hyped for the sequel. Several new titan types have been designed for Titanfall 2, and of the titans revealed thus far, the sword-wielding Ronin Titan stood out to me as a good idea for a LEGO build. There were a couple challenges in this approximately 8-hour build.
Nick’s got the small arms of Titanfall covered, but when it’s time to call in the big guns, you need this Atlas by Sam Wormuth (-infomaniac-).
The staff here is sadly unsavvy to the details of Titanfall, but it doesn’t take an expert to appreciate the level of detailing on this thing. You can practically feel the ground shake just by looking at this killer mech.
