Smug Mug

I don’t know what it is about this mech by Markus Rollbühler, but it has had me grinning ear to ear ever since I first laid my eyes on it. Maybe it’s the smug yet whimsical look on the classic yellow mini-figure, or maybe it’s just the thought of being even lazier when getting a hot beverage in the morning. But in the end, we all know that the reason why this mech has me grinning is because it resembles the cute and not at all creepy character from Toy Story: Babyface.

Ducky

You know what you need? A duck mech. I’ll be truthful, I didn’t know I needed one too until I saw this MOC by Moko. Ok, maybe I don’t need one, but I WANT one! I have no idea what I’ll do with it, where on earth I’d take it, just around my sleepy little town of Lompoc, CA probably. Maybe I’ll fabricate a costume, and fight crime in it, please submit your ideas for my new super hero persona.

MF-10 Diamond Empress

I’ll be the first to admit that there isn’t much LEGO mech coverage on this blog. This isn’t because I have anything against them, it’s simply because I’ve run out of words for them. I see them all the time and think “hey, that’s pretty awesome” but beyond saying “hey, this is pretty awesome” I have no idea what to write. So when I scrolled past this mostly transparent mech by builder Moko that was the usual response, but it’s just so unusual and nifty I had to share. By the way, if you’re a LEGO mech fan with more to say and would like to blog about it, come join the Nerd Herd.

Samurai Mech

I was stunned to learn that builder Eero Okkonen constructed this gorgeous behemoth in two days, TWO DAYS! I know I’m a slow builder, glacially slow any more (seriously, my current MOC has been on the table in the studio for well over a year) but this just blows my mind. Sometimes it’s the pressure of a contest deadline that can kick a build into overdrive, in this case the Eurobricks Ninjago Contest. But to beat the deadline with such an awesome figure, color me impressed.
