This guy by Mǝmory of the Young Spacers Association is a pretty simple build, but great posing and photography make it look very nice here. The arm joint is a pretty cunning combination of two lever bases around a lever. It makes a remarkably flexible joint, though it looks a little unusual. There’s a whole series of them behind the fold.
The astute amongst you will have noticed that we have yet another new page on the site. A small, but destined to grow, selection of the very best in Mechaton frame design.

Sometimes there are builds that make you take a look because of their unusual parts usage. Just such a thing is this war droid diorama by Alex E.2. Droid bodies, droid heads, minifig arms, they’re all in there.
Traditionalists may not approve, but the effect is quite stunning.
I missed originally that the Surveyor Bot I posted earlier was based on this much more mechaton-appropriate little guy. Check out the photostream for a whole series of them.
Vincent’s posted another installment of their Mechaton campaign here (On the off chance you’re following this blog but not Vincent’s). Follow the links there for some pretty interesting mech designs, and some interesting uses of the campaign rules.
I love the use of minifig helmets on the shoulders on this thing.
Creations by builder mondayn00dle (A.K.A Brian Kescenovitz) are a frequent sight on well-known lego blogs like The Brothers Brick. We’ve seen a lot of his larger mecha creations, and vast dioramas. In this post though, I’d like to highlight some of the smaller things in Mondayn00dle’s photostream, which have got a lot of interesting ideas suitable for mechaton-sized creations.
