I dunno, Rex. Their both amazing in their own fields, but if what I know is true, anime type mecha are harder to build than the blocky kind.

Who do you guys think is better Kescenovitz or Izzo?

I think they are both pretty good but I do so love anime style mechs.

Hello all, joined on invite. In response to the topic: It really depends on the mech itself. True, anime-styled ones are generally built in a more elaborate way for aesthetic purposes, but are usually lighter and have less greebles. However, blockier mechs are more greebly (and many here consider greebling to be a talent, if done well), and heavier, meaning that under most circumstances they need a much more sophisticated jointing system and core. Having built both (I've a ninja mech in the works), I'd say that they're about equal in terms of complexity, and, if done well (like Kescenovitz's mechs), heavier designs can be just as visually appealing and/or difficult to build as more stylized designs. So, I've now answered your question without ACTUALLY saying anything (=

IMO I think its like comparing a Toyota Prius to a Ferrari. They're both cars, but you would never substitute one for the other. Personally, I prefer the Mech Assault style (blocky). I think they're far more realistic and can demonstrate heavy armor with a lot of technical details (greebs). I don't much care for the very flowing, organic style of anime mechs simply because they are so unrealistic. As far as build skill and difficulty goes, again, its like comparing apples to oranges. Anime style seems tough because your making rounded, flowing shapes and structures using squared off blocks. Not easy. On the other hand, the other style incorporates a lot more detailing, joints, vents and other features needed to (theoretically) make the mech function. In closing, simply because I'm a realism fanatic, the blocky style is better.

I really like seeing organic looking mechs (though I know that's an oxymoron) that don't rely on bionicle pieces. I also really like seeing creative joint techniques since they always make me want to try them.

The best advice I can give is to just keep experimenting and developing your style. When you get a good idea, don't be afraid to disassemble a MOC and rebuild it.
