This is the Lego Knights Mech, or レゴ 軽装型鉄機兵, and is the creation of Moko. The Knight is another great addition to the vast Lego Mech/Robots MOC theme. This mech is a collection of normal Lego pieces and Bionicle. One surprising detail of this build is that the shoulders are upside down Bionicle skulls. Some of those new shield pieces are used in the waist area. This mecha comes equipped with a spear, sword, and shield. Making it ready for any fight. The shield is a giant saw blade, but the sword has a really interesting detail: the guard is an upside down horse armor piece. Even with all the detail, the Knights Mech is still very posable, making it a very dynamic MOC.
This squad of Lego Warhammer 40k Ultramarines is the creation of funnystuffs. These soldiers are outfitted in some of the best power armour (armor?) around. The iconic blue and gold color scheme is perfectly recreated with Lego. A lot of work has been done here to keep these MOCs small. Each Ultramarine also has unique armor. They come equipped with all sorts of weapons, such as a giant sword, huge energy axe, various guns, and even a powered chainsaw sword. A story can be told based on these little details. Check out the marine with the replacement leg. The build also contains a few custom features, a lot of little decals, and even custom molded helmets for three of the marines.
Meet the Household Arrival People Introducer Robot, or HAPI for short. This little lego robot is the creation of Tom Gerardin. It features one of the new Lego Dots, which is a new theme focused on emoji and smiley faces. Normally used for bracelets and accessories. Just goes to show that you can borrow from any Lego theme to make your creations. Standing about as tall as two minifigures with a lot of personality squeezed into its frame. Check out the robot pauldron used for the head, and the minifigure laser guns for the jets on the back. It looks like HAPI might hang out with the Mixels in its spare time.
There are a whole bunch of “Power Armor” builds out there. Sometimes known as “Exo Suits.” They usually focus on using a lego minifigure head, and then recreating their body out of lego pieces. In the end, creating a type of mechanical looking armor. This MOC is titled “Elon – Life on Mars” and is created by Devid VII. The orange plates mixed with the tan in the background makes a great simple, out of focus Mars. The blue/teal of the spacesuit is a perfect contrast to the orange. And, the white gives the whole thing a very clean future look. Usually these type of lego builds are super fragile, but this one looks sturdy. Lots of clips here.
The FCA AHM 5, a lego heavy mech, is ready for a fight in the Italian countryside. This MOC is created by Marco Marozzi. It has an olive green (a rare color) and grey color scheme making it better at blending into stuff. The build uses custom decals and painted details which helps give it a finished appearance. Check out some of the fun stuff, like the feet/toe design, the pilot cab/face, and all the pipes scattered around everything. This lego heavy mech is a great addition to the thriving robot/mech category.
The Titan AT-ST is what you get if the classic Star Wars walker had a more modern mech design. Created by I-Have-An-Alibi, this Titan comes equipped with a huge (mini?) gun, Boba Fett style shoulder cloak, legs, and fully working arms. Overall a huge upgrade over the rather basic AT-ST. If the empire had these mechs, they may have won the Battle of Endor. But they didn’t. Oh-well.
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.
This trooper is armed with 2 Z-8 chain guns. Droids won’t know what to do as they are blasted to bits. The Lego Prototype Anti-Droid Exosuit is an MOC created by tommilorenzo. It is amazingly compact and fits a single Lego Minifigure perfectly. The reactor core on the back of the exosuit is a great detail, as are the various vents and pipes (for cooling?). It all comes together pretty well!
It is Harley Quinn’s turn to have some fun. Harley’s Harlequinn is a Lego Mech created by Peter Taylor for the Mech Madness 2012 contest. This mech stands up without supports, but a base was specially designed to help it stand in more dynamic poses. Check out all the features. The main weapon is a massive hammer. And, when that doesn’t work Harley can always use her giant pistol. It is made out out of various wheel parts, and even the Lego barrel (which is usually found in the Pirates theme). The Harlequinn features a four finger hand with knuckles, perfect for picking up Batman. If she is ever in trouble a few hidden cannons can help out. Harley Quinn herself pilots this monstrosity from inside the head, with duel joysticks.
Batman seems to have a tool for any situation. A few of the vehicles he owns include the Batmobile, the Batplane, the Batcopter, the Batpod, the Batskiboat, and the Batmissile. There is clearly a pattern. It is then easy to imagine that when Batman goes to Yosemite or Yellowstone he would bring along a Batcamper. This Lego MOC is the creation of Hoyin Lau. It is clearly based on the famous Volkswagen Camper Van. Not only is the camper black and yellow but it also features multiple bat detailing.
Just like the Batmobile in the Tim Burton films, this Batcamper can transform into something else. In this case a bulky mech style robot. With the new arms and legs this is truly an off-road vehicle.
