This Neko-Robo Companion is a Lego robot built by Jack Frost. Programmed with over 500 emotional responses you will never be lonely again. The robot is an entry into the Bio-Cup 2020 challenge. The companion has a few interesting features including a television for a head, and what looks like a microphone for a tail. In terms of a Lego creation make sure to check out some of the inventive part usage. The Lego shock-absorbers can be found being used as feet, a few springs add some detail to the mechanics, the flower used for decoration, and a pair of Lego tires used for wrists. The figure features a good amount of articulated joints, which means that it can be posed in many different ways. Although with such small feet, it might be hard to find a good balance.
There are so many Lego Robots out there. And many many more come into being every day. There are so many ways to build them. Big or small or really small? Sleek or complicated? This Lego Robot is called DoodleBot, and it is small and sleek. Created by Ivan Martynov, who specializes in weird mechanical beings. What makes DoodleBot stand out is the armor plating. The big curvy shapes have been matched and put together surprisingly well. Underneath all that armor is a complicated build or joints and connectors. The metal tube arms and legs are wonderfully retro. All of which is supporting a unique head. The 1×1 transparent orange bulbs make great eyes, and the Lego Minifigure ratchets works well as antennas.
The British television show Red Dwarf has been floating through space for over 20 years. It is about time the crew get their own Lego Ideas set based on the cult comedy show. The Lego Red Dwarf set features an amalgamated interior of the ship, and references to a lot of classic episodes. The main design is based on Season X. It includes the famous bunk beds, posters, a sliding airlock, Holly Hop Drive, and Skutters. Also included in the Lego Ideas project is the Blue Midget, which is anything but small. There are six custom Minifigures, created by Minifigs.me, which includes: Dave Lister, Kryten, Arnold Rimmer, Daune Dibbley, CAT, and Ace Rimmer.
A neat thing you don’t always see is that this Lego Ideas project is listening to the comments and updating the design. The Blue Midget has had its front redesigned, a Talkie Toaster added, and improved Holly screens.
“Whether you’re a diehard fan of Red Dwarf, Adult, Child or just love Lego! There’s something here to enjoy for everyone.”
Have you ever seen a relatively accurate model of a frog built with Lego? How about a Mech Frog? This Lego MOC is stunning. A white frog that is unexpectedly articulated. This thing can open up into a full jumping pose. Plus the head can open up so Minifigures can perform the annual maintenance. Oil changes and such.
This Lego Mech Frog MOC is the creation of Mitsuru Nikaido, who you can find on Twitter:
Lego has always been a place to create your own Mechs. Even Lego has been officially releasing Mechs from at least 1984. Although the official bots are usually simple, the MOCs people have been creating are breaking new ground, in detail and awesomeness. Check out this golden masterpiece, the MFX [F] – Aztech Deity Reborn. It is the third version of the Diety created by Lu Sim. This version features a golden body, with black frame. And, if you look close enough, a little bit of red. The other big change is going with a thinner, more “feminine” type mech. This golden god is just awesome.
Lego and Robots are a very popular genre of Lego MOCs. This robot duo are known as the Bad Binary Bitches (that is some good alliteration). Check out their use of various clips and hinges. They are also a great place to show off new and cutting edge Lego building techniques. Especially the use of the Lego Minifigure back connector used in the legs. The use of stickers (custom!) help lend these robot ladies some personality. They may be tough, but they certainly look delicate. They are standing on Lego wrenches after all.

This scene, called “The Last Chance”, looks like it came straight out of a video game. Something like Advanced Warfare or Titanfall. In the last decade or so, Lego has really made it easy to create Minifigure scale mechs, robots, and hard suits. All of the newish pieces, and bricks that clip, and fit into small spaces are perfect for this type of MOC. Check out those tan Minifig arms holding up the cage, or the nozzle pieces bing used in multiple places. These hard suits are ready for a fight, which they are going to get. Check out the 3 well armed guys around the corner of the ruined building. It is this building that tells most of the story. The overgrown plants, crumbling walls and caved in roof all hint at a completely ruined battlefield. This is the end, and the defenders are going to go down fighting.
