This was blogged on Brothers Brick a little while ago, but I just found it and had to share. A quick head swap would make for a very dynamic mech. Unfortunately, it uses a few of those droid bodies I’m coming to hate (because I don’t have any).
You can see the thing exploded here.
There are a few common connections that crop up a lot in mecha building, and a few techniques that I use a lot, that I’ve stolen from other, better designers. In the interests of spreading information around, I’m going to discuss a few common joints used for articulation and difficult angles in building mecha. Feel free to add more in the comments, or correct me if I’ve got something wrong. These are behind a cut because it’s long.

An MgN-302, in bits. There have been a couple of people asking for an exploded view so that can see what bits were used, so here you go!
If anyone does build a 302, I’d love to see them.
