My First Mecha

After catching Mobile Frame fever, I called my mom and asked if maybe there was any chance they saved some of my old LEGO blocks. It turned out they kept all their kid's LEGO... that's three boys' worth of play sets. This weekend I sorted through the bins for all the tiny pieces, and made my first mecha based on the way-cool MgN-302 frame designed by Jed September.

It has a shield sometimes. And a gun.

I wasn't sure we would have had enough of the fiddly bits required for the articulation, but there were more claws and joints and nubbins than I remembered. Also I lucked out and found exactly one of the pieces that is absolutely required at the core of this design. I'm excited to make some more, but I have to take this one apart first!
