I like to keep an eye on the Lego “hard suit” community for two reasons. One, hard suits are perfect for playing Mechaton in mini-fig scale, and two, I am always learning new tricks and frames. Most hard suits make great mechs if you just take off the mini-fig head and replace it with a canopy or something more mech looking. I was looking at xezav’s photostream and found a whole bunch of good stuff.
I am so building this as a mech!
