Somedays I feel overwhelmed by the sheer amount of military mechs that flood the LEGO community, therefore I am always surprised and intrigued by mechs that break this trend, such as this one created by legomelego. The background hangar and lighting is what really caught my eye at first, but the more I look at it, the more I can't help but feel that this little robot is trying to portray emotions and break free from his human overlords. Look at their diabolical smiles... how evil.
When building giant mechanical machines, many builders are often conflicted with one important question: What's the perfect recipe for an awesome mech? Well according to Marco Marozzi all you need are some big guns and some even bigger legs. I mean, look at those things! One thing for sure, this mech has not been skipping leg day at the gym.
I find it doubtful that GM-20, a.k.a. "MARVIN," is a fan of buttered scones or women's clothing, but around the construction site there's little doubt he's immensely useful. Builder César Soares once again delivers a mech that is both cute and charming and ever so slightly terrifing.
Who doesn't love mecha? This MOC from Lu Sim is gorgeous. I dig the suit-of-armor aesthetic, and the use of the translucent castle door piece as a laser sword is a stroke of genius. He looks like he's ready to square off against a mecha-dragon and save the mecha-princess (OK, I may have taken this analogy a bit too far).
Bob DeQuatre has come up with a sexy new mech, The Running Flamingo, piloted by none other than Flora Saint-Clair. Not sure who she is, actually, but thought that sounded good... Anyway, the pink fenders surrounding the canopy as well as the ones covering the legs are quite fetching, and make a nice contrast with all the greebly mechanical bits underneath. And she's even got *ahem* high heels. Nice one Bob!
Though dinosaurs may be extinct, their presence is still used to great advantage. Moko took it upon himself to strike fear into the enemies of these soldiers by building them a raptor mech, one that is clearly ready for action. It may be mechanical, but the essence of the powerful spirits of dinosaurs is represented well here. Two pilots, two legs, one larger turret, and no doubt plenty of other combat abilities.
