There had been some doubts expressed as to whether my mecha actually fit minifigs, so hopefully this will lay that rumor to rest.



The V-Type mk I is equipped with two mono-molecular edged, anti-armor swords



The twin blades are stored on the rear of the unit when not in use



As melee weapons, the twin blades inflict top tier damage on most opponents, cleaving through enemies in a single slash.



Pilots are selected to pilot the V-Type mk I on the basis of their melee proficiency. The pilots need to be able to wield the twin blades as if they are an extension of themselves.



The Anti Armor coating on the blades renders most energy shields ineffectual



Holding twin blades



For situations where a single blade is ineffectual against an opponent, the V-Type mk I can use its devastating "Cross Crusher" maneuver



There are few enemies that can survive an onslaught by a single blade, and none than can survive a double assault



The "Cross Crusher" maneuver also makes an excellent defensive move in melee combat



Crossing blades



The V-Type's construction gives it the ability to make surprisingly autonomic movements, making it a deadly and unpredictable opponent in melee combat



Wielding twin blades



Wielding twin blades



The V-Type's drive unit is more than powerful enough to enable flight and it can reach orbital altitudes unassisted. During battles in a gravity well, however, its can frequently be seen using its drive to make prodigious leaps across the battlefield



These leaps can easily carry the unit across enemy lines, disrupting the enemy formations and allowing the V-Type to deal out death from above.



Leaping and Slashing



Another tactic commonly employed by pilots of the V-Type mk I is the use of high speed sword slashes, taking advantage of the unit's drive capability.



Performing a high speed pass with the twin blades



For ranged combat, the V-Type mk I is outfitted with a pair of energy pistols.



The pistols are short-mid range weapons and are stored on the hips when not in use



The pistols use re-loadable energy cells for their power source, and can easily be swapped out on the fly



The twin pistols have full auto, semi-auto, and single shot modes



The autonomic capabilities of the V-Type make it every bit as versatile in ranged combat as it is in melee combat



The twin guns can be used singly or as a pair

Maybe, but still; look at the size of those things. I know that impossibly large swords are a staple of gundam type shows, but still. Oh, and how about http://www.sarna.net/wiki/File:3025_shadowhawk.jpg?

Quoting Areetsa C Well, the body's quite good, but the swords just look wonky and unwieldy with their extended hilts, and it seems a bit underarmed for a supposed assault vehicle. But anyway, on to the true purpose here: came across a few things, figured it might be interesting to see your take on one of them at some point: http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Archangel http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Malak
Dude, I think you take this stuff way too seriously--if you want to follow that line of reasoning, why does it have hands at all? Why not just build the weapons into the arms? Why build a mech at all? They are totally not feasible. The answer to all this? Well, its because it looks cool. Thats really the only answer. Thanks for the links, but I'm not into Battletech/Mechwarrior. Anime-style mechs would totally kick any Battlemechs any day.

Quoting evangelionfanx xd Nice one! I've decided to get back into the brick building business starting today. I'll focus on gundams from here on out I suppose but I'll make a little treat every now and then. Good to see you still building
Likewise! You were missed!

Quoting Savior Ensign Vega Gomez Hey this is really, really nice. I like all the poses. Its color is great aswell. Posablility range is good. Be honest Sir, did your ZGMF-X10A Freedom sway alot? My Impulse Sways back to front. Its never sturdy.
The Freedom Gundam was a real pain to pose, because it lacked in stability. In my case though, this was mostly due to click joints that had been way overused by that point, as opposed to the design itself. If your model is having stability issues, you may either need sturdier joints, or you may need to redistribute the weight or try and lower the weight of the model as best you can. If you are making the force impulse in particular, you may find that it tends to topple over backwards. A couple of other countermeasures include: making a stand for the Gundam to sit on, so that the weight is off of the legs (you can also make cool aerial poses this way). All you need are some technic girders and a baseplate. Another thing you can do is use clear nail polish on your ball joints and sockets, or your click joints to make them more stiff. Its only a temporary measure though, and can cause damage to your lego, so I don't recommend that except as a last resort. I hope that some of this helps

Quoting Toilet Duck This Mech is Epic, it looks like a real mech and it reminds me alot of Jango from the anime Burst angel. Keep up the good work. P.S. ever thought of trying to make Dynames??
I know of a couple of people who have done the dynames and have done a far better job than I could ever hope to.

Quoting JS Can Fantastic job! To have that amount of rotation & bending in LDD is quite amazing and tedious work. My only complaint is the swords are bordering on ridiculous length, but I realize that's how the video games and anime do them, so I understand.
I completely agree with you on all counts.

Quoting Thomas Z. Why don't you try it with plates? They are thinner then bricks and can be placed closer. Something like this http://www.mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=253073&id=/user_images/69211/1297803761m (my throne's shoulder) it might worth a try. No need for the strip down on my account, I already downloaded the LDD file ^^, altough there's a minor difference between the two swords on the back side, everything else is fine in my opinion. I never tought about using an actual "leg" join design for a shoulder joint, pretty good.(I used the same method on my Obsidian but on the legs and not on the shoulder.)
I'll definitely take another look at your shoulder design. I would definitely like something more compact.

Quoting Thomas Z. Pure awesomeness! my favourite is the 2nd last pic where the mecha kneels.I see you're using some new shoulder joint design. I might use that idea sometime in the future xd great work!
Thanks man. It took me a while to get this one done, because of other demands on my time. The shoulder design is indeed different. If you like I can strip the design down to the frame so you can see it easier. In all honesty, this design was made entirely to test out the shoulders in preparation for use on the 00 Gundam that I am working on. The one weakness of the shoulder design is that they are a bit on the wide side, but there was no avoiding this (at least, not in LDD. In real life maybe they could be 4 studs wide, instead of 5).
