Mini Digger.

May 27, 2012

This is a small set for $5.99 that looks great on a “seven plate scale” table straight out of the box.  The set is called Mini Digger.  Makes a great station, or just cover, both ways it adds some flavor.

    Front loaders are essential for moving all those valuable peaches around, after all.

      Yeah, peaches in crates, because peaches are too valuable to damage by scooping them up unprotected. Some economies just wouldn’t recover from that.

    Normally I buy sets just for the parts. I may have to buy and build this one.

    Hey so I’m pretty new to MF0 and I’ve been out of LEGO for many years (outside a few sets here and there for my son). What are the tiny people built out of, specifically the tiny arm piece? Is that a single special 1×1 or is there some piece snapped in to form the arms?

      The torso is a 1×1 with one stud on the front side. A mini-fig gun pistol-grip has then been inserted into the hollow side stud, and then two mini-fig hands have been clipped to the gun. It makes for a neat little optical illusion.

    Hello. How did you do that mech? It really looks like a south-side heavy gear. I would like to know what pieces did you use for the torso. Could you take a photo or explain it? Thanks a lot.

      AH! A Heavy Gear fan at last! I thought we were a dying breed. To answer your question, that mech (or “frame”) is a version of the “Chub”, a basic frame showcased and illustrated in the Mobile Frame Zero rulebook. You can download the .pdf for free on the homepage for MF0 @ Just look right under the banner and you should find it. To download it, click the link to download it underneath the MF0 .pdf image. I hope this helps.

      You’ll also find another five frames in there with complete instructions as well as some background info, and rules on how to play the game.

      Good hunting. Build some frames, play some games.

    This is something I’ve got to pick at least 6-of up. With the new Creator 3-in-1 “Power Digger” set retailing in Australia from $8-10 AU, it’s cheap enough to use as mainstay terrain in an industrial or urban setting. Adding a few Power Diggers to the mix just increases the authenticity of an industrial building site idea. I’m thinking there could be some good, illustrated fiction possible using these bad boys together. I’m definitely investing in quite a few. Just one question though, where’s a good place to get them? They seem to have been taken out of stock quite a while ago from everywhere I got to for Lego.
