This is the Sandstorm IV, a Lego Mech created by Joe. This deadly robot has been optimized for dry climates and deserts. A wide stance, and large feet help it move in the shifting sands. With a yellow and white paint job that helps it to blend into its surroundings. The contrast between the white and dark parts means that it can be hard to see the pilot. They are present and ready for battle. This is a really interesting Lego Mech. The overall design looks very sleek. It features a mechanical look with some excellent greebling. The few extra hoses and vent / grill pieces help make this look more believable. Although its feet help it stand, the spindly joints in the hips and knees means that it needs a little bit of support.
Lego Robots, Mechs, Mechas, Power Armors, and Exosuits are very popular. And, there are many many ways to build them. This Lego Baby Mecha is one of the smallest, and cutest of these. Built by Milan Sekiz. It features red, white and grey coloring with a candy swirl for decoration. The little baby is carefully and securely piloting this little robot. The little Lego sausages for the cab is one of the best details. The whole thing is about 26 pieces. Milan Sekiz has put together a set of detailed and helpful instructions. So now you can build your own Lego Baby Mecha. You could probably change up the colors and details a bit and make your own baby battalion. They will need a lot of diapers though.
Lego and giant robots are a perfect match. There are countless official and unofficial creations. Even so, there is an incredible variety and new builds are always a treat. This Lego Mech is called the Yellow Jackrabbit and is the creation of Alvaro Gunawan. It features a striking yellow and orange design; powerful looking legs; and a huge (mini?) gun. The whole robot can even fold up (transform). Although, the best feature is the cockpit in which a lego minifigure pilot can fit inside.
BrickUltra has just released information about their Wave 2 release of their Custom Lego Minifigures. These new Minifigs are digitally printed, meaning that the quality and detail is amazing. These feature printing that completely covers the Minifig head, arms, and legs. The first four Minifigures all appear to be based on popular video games. I recognize Titanfall, and Borderlands 2, but for some odd reason I can’t place the other two. They are being sold for $30, and ship will be shipping in March.
“Prepare to drop! Each Mech Pilot’s body armor is equipped with a jet pack which allows them to hop across the battlefield! Despite these abilities, the Mech Pilot can still be squashed like ants if they are not careful around an enemy Mech.”
“Psychos are bandits who have gone insane with a freakish obsession for loot. Shirtless, wearing a white mask and dressed in orange pants, these outlaws can be immediately identified by their homicidal cries, psychotic laughter and constant desire to get into close combat.”
“Ultra was constructed by a famed scientist/adventurer, who experimenting in high-intelligence robotics. Ultra became sentient and rebelled, hypnotizing the scientist and brainwashing him into forgetting that Ultra had ever existed. He immediately began improving upon his rudimentary design, quickly upgrading himself.”
“In the Carmine family, military service was simply an expectation; they didn’t do it for a sense of duty or honor or patriotism. Instead, they “simply loved to shoot guns, blow stuff up, and never turn down a knock-down, drag-out fight.”
