I sincerely hope that I'm not the only one that feels this way, or that has noticed this. Over the past few years, there has been an abundant lack of LEGO non-licensed System (take your 2014 HF sets outside the thread, please) mechs that feature actual, working knees. Or to be more specific: three points of articulation per leg. An exception to this rule is the Exo-Suit, but aside from that there have been nearly, if not zero, mechs with knees. One could bring up examples from NINJAGO, such as the Earth Mech, but an example such as that suffers from a lack of feet (or in other words, whether or not it can be described as having knees is debatable). A significant amount of posing is lost with this development, and it's inexcusable when it happens with virtually every mech they release now. Does anyone know exactly why this is? It's not a cost problem, because EXO-FORCE defies all logic in that department. It's not a structural problem, because again, EXO-FORCE defies all logic in that department, and it's not an aesthetic reason either because some sets have still managed to make the legs look worse, and EXO-FORCE again has cases where looks were a non-issue because of parts usage. Even if it was a cost problem, when you're releasing a set with two mechs later this year, one of which has four arms, is it really unreasonable to expect that there would be some decent poseability? That in itself is another problem, because far too often sets fail to feature the best possible combinations of the ball and socket hybrid pieces, a notable example being the set Jay's ElectroMech, which uses an inferior connection style to the most commonly used method of attaching feet to a Mech/robot/CCBS human which has had significant and dominant usage since 2001. I apologize if this seems like an incoherent rant (it's 1:20 AM), but I'm really disappointed with the lack of three points of articulation on System Mechs despite its heavy usage in the past and sloppy set design. Am I being unreasonable in expecting more out of sets and designs, particularly when aside from Exo-Suit there hasn't been three points of articulation in years? I'd also like to note that I'm speaking of non-licensed Mechs. Sorry Star Wars fans
Hi, my name is HighDesertBrikr. I also have a YouTube channel by the name of Nerf & Lego Fun. I have been building with Lego Bricks as long as I can remember. I like building little mechs and spaceships, if you are subbed to the MFZ reddit than you already know that. I have been thinking about joining EB for awhile now and finally did. I hope you like my builds and comments. HDBrikr out =-). P.S. Remember Jeses loves you and said "I am the way, the truth, and life. No one comes to the Father but by Me." and "For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life". If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved!

tchuk-norst posted a topic in LEGO Sci-FiThere is a fog upon the battlefield. The broken bodies of men and machine lay limp on the bloodied ground. The battered remains of battle machines still hiss out smoke. This waste, this destruction, could be caused by only one thing: The Goblin. In response to the Attatech III, the Central Machines X was born and bred for total warfare. With four massive 6 cm cannons, four missle lauchers, and reverse-seated machine gunners, the Goblin is a veritable walking fortress. Here is an aged photo, which, as you know, I like to do. Here is the valiant crew! I hope you enjoy. More pictures on Brickshelf.
