Break it down!

November 14, 2011

As you know from my last post Joshua A.C. Newman is working on a new version of Mechaton.  He says he is working with “Vincent Baker, his son Sebastian, and Lego superstar Soren Roberts.”  Joshua has asked Soren to create several new frames for this version.  As to how many, Soren says “I want to do as many as Joshua can be talked into, but there will be at *least* five.”  To build anticipation of the coming release, Soren has sent me breakdown shots of four of the five frames.  Today we will look at the frame that graces the cover of the prototype rule-set,  the Chub.

This is the breakdown Soren sent me.

It looks great in teams.

It can handle a wide selection of armaments.

It looks great reskined.

The Chub has already made a public convention appearance at  Metatopia.

The Chub has truly made a place for itself in the war-torn world of Mechaton.

    Looks like I’m going to be busy copying Soren’s mechs over the next couple of days. 🙂

    I need help on the torso. I can’t figure it out.

      The upper half of the back is one of these-

      The shoulders are connected to two of these-

      The head is built off of one of these that is hinged to the upper back part.

      Two of these finish off the shoulder-backpack transition.

      Finally this part on the backpack holds the upper and lower back together.

      Hope that helps.

    Going a little crazy trying to ID that gorgeous chest piece.

    That sounded odd.


    Can someone help me out with a design ID?

      I’m not sure which one you are talking about, but here are the Bricklink numbers for the four parts in the different pics.

      Clic on the number to be taken to the Bricklink page.
