Some of the most iconic mechs ever designed belong to BattleTech (MechWarrior). Some of the most popular BattleMechs are the Warhammer, Locust, Catapult, Marauder, Summoner (Thor), and arguably the Urbanmech. The most famous is the Mad Cat (Timber Wolf) mech. This mech is usually on the over of BattleTech books, and used in all sorts of promotional stuff. It also happens to be one of the best BattleMechs, a “jack of all trades” model. It packs a deadly arsenal, while preserving the agility of the smaller mechs. Flickr user “ccy” has created an extremely accurate Lego BattleTech Mad Cat. All of the weapons are present, the Gauss Rifles, LRM-10s, and the ER Medium Lasers. Even the iconic chicken legs are recreated perfectly in Lego.
The only thing that is compromised in this Lego Mad Cat is the cockpit. In the source material the cockpit is rather large, taking up most of the center body space. Lego has a vast selection of cockpit pieces but there are not very many oversized options. The awesome thing is that in the Lego model the cockpit (although smaller) looks great. There is even room for a pilot.
