Tyler has a whole series of cool blasters, but this one in particular is my favorite!
I love brick built figures, and this series by LegoJalex really tickles the nostalgia.
Now here is an excellent usage of monochrome! Built by Legolize It Man.
I’ve reviewed a number of Japanese books of mecha and this one by Goniataito would be a fine addition.
A. Yates turns out another handsome squad of tiny mecha.
This last week I made two trips to my local Lego store. I hadn’t planned it that way, but curiosity about the contents of the pick-a-brick wall took me there once on my own and then we took a family trip to the mall on the weekend. Two trips and two large cups of elements.

This monochromatic mech is an interesting experiment from Devid VII. I’m not sure that it couldn’t be improved with some color, but the intricacy is impressive.
Lu Sim has been churning out some great mecha lately and this heavy looks to be bringing some serious ordinance.
This year’s seasonal sets are a nice departure from the cute animals sets that Lego produced last year. Each set is an 8×8 vignette with a pair of minifigures in an appropriate setting. Kicking off the line is this interestingly mature Valentine’s Day Dinner.

Dasnewton is back with a great heavy starfighter.
Pascal has already taken advantage of the breakdown that dasnewton provided to build his own copy.
These little guys were built as part of the trophies for Cory Janssen‘s MechApocalypse ’47 event at BricksCascade 2015.
There have already been a lot interpretations of Interstellar, but this one by jp_velociraptor is amazing.
Galaktek seems to have gotten carried away with his table scraps and wound up with this evocative train vignette.
It took me a moment for the scale of this scene to settle in. Mike Doyle‘s mountaintop removal MOC is as gorgeous and a bit terrifying.
I’ve been working a tank myself lately, and this handsome little devil by Rancorbait is kick-ass!
Spac13‘s Vulture is a lovely, boxy monster that I’m definitely feeling.
Dasnewton has given a detailed breakdown for building your own version of this intricate ship.
Another of pascal‘s understated builds. I really like the use of anti-studs here.
Who doesn’t love themselves a little space wild west action? Built by Shannon Sproule.
Last month I participated in a fun little contest on Flickr. The competition involved building Mixel-ized versions of classic Dungeons & Dragons monsters. I’m a fan of both, so it really didn’t take much to get me started.

I’m loving the use of gears on this little mecha by Marco Marozzi!
ska2d2 has built another great diespunk flyer.
The brick-built striping and all those engine details! A great fighter by Sylon-tw.
zi zy is the master of these little mecha, constantly innovative and surprising. I love the tracked heels!
What a great crab-like mecha here by Benjamin Cheh Creations.
Lu Sim really knocked it out of the park with this menacing black mecha. The translucent flourescent orange highlights really work!
I mean, just look at those awesome swords!
I’ve been a fan of the Friends line for a while now. Every season, Lego releases new and amazing sets in these pink boxes. The elements alone are worth the purchase (and oh so perfect for drafting). Needless to say, when I saw pictures of this set surface on the internet, I began to salivate.

Moko‘s latest mech is full of crunchy detail!
Another ska2d2‘s dieselpunk flying machines, this time in a racing red.
Just the essence of a walking tank, nicely distilled by P. B.
A sweet microscale space freighter from Shannon.
It’s the latest Iron Builder entry from Nannan and I love the muted tones and mini-golf!
