a polite and unassuming lego blog

Just one more play time, please?

We have a theme for tonight's post. It is "mecha". We also have a subtheme, which is "mecha that involve things that I like".

Mecha+Steampunk Brickshelf user and suspected frenchard Legohaulic has combined technic goodness and an odd assortment of barrels, cannons, and this part oddity to create a wonderful 4-legged steam mech. Note the hose placement, nice detail there. The cannon doesn't seem to be connected to anything very well. I'd expect it to rip right off the mech whenever it's fired, and considering it's current angle, that would be bad news indeed for the driver. Let's hear it for gratuitous hook-hands!

Mecha+Panda People who know me know I like pandas. I have two shirts to prove it. Mike Crowley has taken the incredibly cute concept or a panda piloting a panda mech from "Panda-Z" and made it BrickFA style. While Crowley's is nice, I'd really like to see this made in a larger scale. Perhaps I'll have to do it.

Mecha+Bunny Real nice use of Bionicle in this mech by " Toa-Ju". He (or she) really has a knack from combining the Bionicle parts with the regular system parts. Surprising to see a bunch of technical bits form an organic whole.

Mecha+Community Yes that is right! There is a new site out there, following on the heels of such sites as FBTB, Classic-Castle, and Classic-Space, there is Mecha Hub. Formed by Bryce McGlone and his crew of big name mecha folk. I look forward to reading new articles there, and for them to eventually include the author of said articles in a logical place.

People , webmaster of golden sheepems and pepole of neotron bot glorious Kevin, professor Unwelcome and Kevouh or something...Please help me indetify this part on the rabbit mecha.
My question is this ...
On the rabbit mecha model, does anyone know what silver lego bionicle part is being used on her face and uper portion of her skull. I know it must be a small bionicle mask right?? Secondly, what are the red bionicle masks that are on her arms/ elbow???? I would like to buy some of these from Bricklink but I do not know what they are.... they are cool because they are small.. I guess.

Don't lie, Kevoh. We know you yank the angry inch to the bunnymecha every night.

Finding a specific Bionicle part is pretty tough as they all look pretty much the same to me. Asking in the Bricklink forum or chat gives you better chances.

Ya... I have no idea kid. I own one little bionicle thing from a few years back, from the very first round. I am totally inexperienced with bionicle parts.

Also, it's "bunny", not "rabbit"

Dear anonymous,

You suck for liking Bionicle.

Love, the Internet.

P.S. Grow a pair and link us to your MOCs.

The silver on the head is probably a limited edition/special Gala or whatever the first water lady's name was. The silver on the arms are chrome Rakhi or whatever heads.

Kevin and (Jonesy -- the leaping lemur), why are you not updating your Blog> lego < Its is August, not June. Blogs need to be constantly fed, they need continual tidbits. Your blog is drying up. Do you know what a blog is? Are you smoking marijuana again ??

No, but Kevoh's probably getting drunk somewhere. Or being sodomised.
