A new brickblend frame that is a combination of Lego and Mega Bloks. It will fit in a Pokeball.

I'm a big fan of this one. The shape is unique and pretty cool, it was a certain flair with those legs and the very Mantisking slope head. As I said on flickr I prefer the green head, and it the dark blue of the legs doesn't real stand out to me as needing to be balanced out. Cool stuff though! I love to see a drone system as well :)

Really great, the touches of dark blue pop very nicely!

Thanks! I felt like it needed more Dark Blue than just the band on the legs and the markings on the d6B that isn't visible in the picture, so that's why I changed the color of the head. If the Bar Plate and Clip Plate were available in Dark Blue -- from any brick manufacturer -- they would have been changed too. As it stands I'm pretty happy with how they turned out and I might only tinker with them a little before they hit the table again.

It just hit me it looks even more like a Brazilian flag, with the blue circle in the middle! :D

I finally tracked down more Spinarak pokeballs so I could make more Mantid frames. I'm calling this loadout the "Instigator".

Stats: d6Ra d6Ra (cannon) d6G (extra legs) d6Y d6Y (sensor pods) d6W d6W.

What an intriguing design. I really like the general vibe and versatility of it.

That might the best look for this particular frame, as that big cannon really asks for the additional stability of an hexapod setup!
