Although it was meant more for transformers, do you think my "Switch hand with weapon" tutorial from "legoformers help & ideas group" would fit here too?

this should be more mech related - that tut would be good for my legoformers help and ideas group - as i think you already posted it there right?

playing with some techniques - you'll get ol V eventually

Maybe some of these techniques can offer some inspiration on that giant operational Voltron that we've all been waiting for Mr. Roach ;)

Well I found that nematic T's cans be used for exelent elbow/ knee joints, and seen on my M1-K3, and the recently finished M1-K3-2

I also found that when building a piloted bot, it works well to make the stomach section the cockpit, and use the chest up as a lid over the cabin. I use the spine of the mech as the point of rotation for the upper body.

Does anyone here know how to extend a piston/shock absorber in LDD?

Unfortunately, I do not, even though I have tried several things. Not a happy chocobo...

In other news, I am working on my Mobile Core units, which I invite everyone to check out and let me know what you think!

I tend to use the exo-force click joints for my mechs. I have also found that you can do some interesting things with the 90 degree direction change pieces that are 1x2 studs on each face. I too find that putting the pilot in the torso seems to work best.

For both transformers and mecha, try using minifigure legs as fingers. They don't work well as thumbs, but with zero modifying they are able to be placed under a 1x2 regular brick.

I use simple joint pieces and cover them up with other pieces so it looks cool. That's how I made the Crimson Typhoon.
