Techniques for building Mechs?
Join to comment
 Group admin 
I really don't know too much about building them. That's why I'm asking. I could look around the 'ages and see what other people use, but I really am short on time and if any of you guys could help me out that would be great. I'm mainly looking for techniques on the legs of the mechas. Those really have me stumped. I can never really make good ones. And another is arms. It's really difficult to find a good way to connect the arms to the body. My most recent mech was going to have arms, but I couldn't find a way to keep the arm stable enough. If any of you guys can help, that would be really great.

A tip for the legs is too use hinges, not technic. Using technic for the legs will make the mech hard to stand.

I have now built an awesome mech for Leda Kat, so here is some advice. Use bionicle and Knights Kingdom hinges for legs and arms, and cover with system. Also, build the head out of Lego, and Use a buble piece, if you have one, to make the place for the fig to sit.
