Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack

The mecha community's been abuzz with a kickstarter project, of all things: the Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack Rulebook. Spearheaded by Joshua A.C. Newman, lots of LEGO stuff by Soren, and game design by the folks at lumpley (one of those blogs that I always want to read but can't seem to get interested in). A $10 backing gets you in an a very cool project and a PDF of the rules, once released. I hope this will fuel a surge of micromecha, especially if they're as nice as this:

So, this is twice-a-month thing, is it?

Brian K. has been semi-active recently (almost as active as this blog!). He does a really a good job of blending system parts and obscure technic offshoots.

A concept vehicle of his from last month. It has suspension.

Cute mecha time:

The first month of the Ghost in the Shell-inspired "Think Tank" build challenge has come to a close. It is to continue through April, but I hope to have a March round-up post on here before too much longer.

His latest makes use of the the large technic treads. There are a lot of great textures, headlight bricks offer selective studding and curved slopes are used to bevel out the edges of the boxy shape.

Occasional driving force of the blog, self-proclaimed Lukas fanboy, and aspiring engineer, Jacob spends too much time building LEGO, not enough time practicing piano, and not nearly enough time doing school. He also enjoys long sentences. In the instance of blogging, he believes in quantity over quality, wherever quantity can be maintained.
One of the cofounders of YSAB, and the founder of YSA, Observing Mike actually being productive is a rare occasion. Mike enjoys making outlandish claims in relation to actually building, pretending he's actually sorting his collection, and making excuses for why he hasn't photographed his MOCs. In his free time he enjoys learning CSS from Spook, photography and poking badgers with spoons.
Occasional builder, occasional blogger, and full-time procrastinator. That's really the only way to describe Dean. He rarely gets anything done, but is a very active lurker. He's probably seen and liked your MOC, but just forgot he had a blog.
Erik is still a teenager.
Lukas is tall, blond, mildly OCD, and doesn't build nearly enough as he would like to, thanks to school. He has a webpage.
Spook (Tim)
The resident codemonkey and graphics person. If something isn't working correctly, it's probably his fault. Fitting to his name, he doesn't post often, but someone has to do this stuff too, right? Spook does build with laygoes, and has his own blog as well.
