March of robots

Marchi’koma is a great possibility to flex one’s building muscles with GitS inspired robots. Since this is right up my alley, I churned out a few models.

A small robot with character with minimum parts in company of a anime-styled minifigure is ‘Tiny T’.

Two robots drawing inspiration from a spider and a crab, ‘Pain + Killer’, feature a heavy utilitarian and military look. Initially they were designed for a commission, but turned out a tad too large.

The largest in this run is the ‘Old V.I.C.’, a mixture of victorian steampunk, robot tech and microscale with a dash of Howl’s moving castle. The frame is based upon the same one as the D.A.Z. FS359i. This fella will probably be part of a larger diorama I am working on for ages.

Long time I was seeking that TLG would release the large quarter circle piece in tan. And now with the new pirate cove set it finally happened. Still a few parts are not available in tan, most was fine to replace with a similar part, except one (2 same pieces) prominent part. Can you spot it?

Here’s the tan version of my interpretation of the famous

Alakuneda Think Tank as seen in the Ghost in the Shell anime.

Here you can find the building instructions for the light grey version.

Welcome the newest members of the metallic family.

Titanite sq-01

Something Cyberpunk/Anime/GitS inspired with a heavy dash of titanium metallic.

Btw it’s Marchikoma, the time to show the iconic robot class some love.

A concept from 2013, now with fresh photos and a full gallery.

Construction mech, fully articulated, the radome is for counterweight balance. Be it a gravity generator, engine and energy container packed with sensoric equipment.

Jigabachi / w Instructions

Your support from the previous project, the Alakuneda Think Tank, encouraged me to make a brick-i-fied rendition of the Jigabachi seen at the Ghost in the Shell S.A.C. II animated series alongside the building instructions.

Type: Assault helicopter

Class: aerial robotics weapons platform, semi autonomous pilot/AI controlled

Estimated real life size: TBD

Manufacturer: Kenbishi Industries

Weapons:

  • retractable minigun
  • 2 independently controlled machine guns at the front
  • 2 attachable rocket launchers with 4 rockets each
  • 2 attachable grenade launchers with 8 batteries each

The model features

  • an openable cockpit including an AI controlling array
  • retractable landing gear
  • fully retractable abdomen with minigun
  • the head and the abdomen have seperated articluation joints
  • moveable rotorblade
  • de/attachable weapons under the winglets
  • a stand

– Instructions –

The model, including the stand, contains of 789 parts. All parts should be widespread available, no rare parts as far as I can oversee.

The 59-paged high-quality instructions are for sale and available on demand, just shoot me a [mail].

And a little peak into the process and the quality you can expect.

This is a further creation in the spirit of the Titan Series with a slightly more realistic/insectish approach.

Enjoying fresh colors inna mecha style!

Pretty happy with the frame. Although it features the small ball joints I managed to make it more stable than other models at the same size with the same small ball joints. Also the abdomen has a crazy joint mechanism, making it max posable 😀
