Recently, there have been some exciting things happening with Mobile Frame Zero. For one thing, the book is now off to print. For another thing, two excellent builders have started posting images of their frames again. Greg Strom (Mitten Ninja on Flickr) and Afny (funnily enough Af/ny on Flickr) have re-joined the community with some cracking photos.
It’s often the case that, when building for Mobile Frame Zero, we build an single mech to photograph. Something that’s nice is seeing a co-ordinated, cohesive company of frames. Not just in the sense of colour co-ordinated, but looking as if they could actually function together, with discernable roles. Preamble over, today’s post looks at some examples of really eye-catching companies.
Chris (Ironsniper) is no stranger to Mechatonic. This company integrates three different designs of frame into on cohesive whole. I particularly like the little scout/recon suit.
Back in the old days of Mechaton, when you had to carve your bricks from granite, when if you lost Vincent would send a nailbomb to your house, and when around 20 people worldwide played the game, there wasn’t quite such a range of frames. With the explosion in popularity created by Mobile Frame Zero, there is now a huge and vibrant building community. Why am I telling you this? If you’re reading, then you’re probably part of that community.
Easing myself back into the Lego/MFZ blogomasphere, I thought a good thing would be to highlight some of my favourite new frames and new builders who have joined the community. Let’s take it as read that the stuff designed by Soren is awesome and that I don’t need to tell you that again. It’s a given. So, here are a handful of frames that I think are great for MFZ.
