Chibi X-Wing Gundam 1

October 21, 2013

Kevin Ryhal has created this adorable Chibi version of his X-Wing Gundam.

I’m not all that into mechas, but this one is too cute not to share. πŸ˜€

Sometimes all you need is a handful of bricks…

This TravisBot by Matt De Lanoy is so adorable I just want to cuddle him! Okay not really, he’s only about an inch tall. But he really is cute! πŸ˜€

I thought Matt had designed him, but he corrected me, the first one was made by Simon Liu

There’s even an evolution game on Flickr which I just might want to contribute to. πŸ˜‰

Update:I did make my own — Dizzy Travis bot

He’s dizzy because I didn’t have the googly eyes, but I did have the ninjago decorated tiles πŸ˜€

Curiosity

This isn’t exactly Halloween related, but heck, its cool so who cares? πŸ˜€

Grandpappy’s robot only wants to pet the kitty, what’s wrong with that. And honest, he didn’t mean to scare the little girl so much she would lose her ice cream.

There’s so much that’s cool about this model. The little details of the fence, sidewalk, and the little girl’s face make it just plain awesome!

PERT2

This model really struck my fancy. I love how Tim Goddard made the landscape. And no, I’m not ignoring the cool Mecha robots. Its just that the rounded landscape caught my eye first on this one. πŸ™‚

That’s not to say that the Mechas aren’t cool. Tim has a flare for building with unusual connections and thinking outside the proverbial box. His Guardian ship also popped out at me with its clean lines and interesting shape.

I highly recommend looking at his Flickr photostream.

Mini Patio and Swiss Guard Mecha

July 10, 2010

Kevin Heckel certainly has a different take when it comes to LEGO building and this model immediately caught my eye on how un-LEGO-like it looks. The colors, the smoothness, and the seemingly simplistic model design are all deceptive in hiding how cool this model is. πŸ™‚

On the other hand, his Swiss Guard Mecha is and entirely different type of model but still all kinds of cool.

The only thing that is modified a bit “taboo” is that he painted the blue barrels partially yellow are the yellow stickers on the blue barrels for the sleeves and pant legs. I personally don’t see anything wrong with this, especially when it is done so well. πŸ˜‰

LEGO Voltron

August 14, 2009

What child of the 80’s doesn’t remember these transforming cat robots of Voltron? Mark Sandlin of Fleebnork fame has created this iconic cartoon mecha in amazing detail. Not only did he faithfully recreate it. He also made it transformable. To get an idea on size, check out the minifig pilots on their individual cats. 😯

Mark has many more detailed photos at his Flickr photostream including WIP (work in progress) shots showing how he toyed with the idea of using chrome for part of the legs.

He said that it took him 71 hours. That’s impressive considering its size and complexity. Great job Mark! πŸ™‚
