    No problem. It'l looking good for a first attempt.

    Yeah, a better pic next time would probably help.

    Looks good so far.

    The Mixels have one serious flaw in their leg designs in that the part with the ball socket is the hip joint. If you put the part with the ball joint as the hip, it will give you better forward/backward articulation. You should also try to do this with the shoulder.

    Also, it looks like the body is built by bricks stacked on eachother right-side-up, correct? Unless you have sideways parts on the front or back to better support them, they'll probably fall apart. (Though at the small scale you're building in, it might be OK) I would suggest you re-work the design of the body to be flat plates facing forward with a sideways bracket joint to attach the head (I'll try to send pics of what I mean later).

    No problem! Anytime you're ready for another 'lesson', let me know!

    Sounds awesome.

    Lesson 1: The key part to mech/robot building is joints. LEGO joins come in all shapes and sizes- the 3mm bars and C-clips, large revoltech-rachet joints, BIONICLE/HF ball joints, small clicky joints, technic pins, and now the Mixels have new small ball joints. Based on the size and weight of the mech, you will need different joints.

    I really like to use these parts: BrickLink Reference Catalog - Part 4697b Because they are good universal joints. You can get something like this: Basic "T" Joint Skeleton / Frame for Miniformers and Mechs: A LEGOŽ creation by Chris Roach : MOCpages.com

    If you have any questions, let me know. And if you want help on a specific part of a robot (head, weapons, etc.) let me know.

    One does not simply become a Master Builder. With just a few lessons.

    (LEGO movie spoiler, in case you haven't seen it yet)"But that's what Emmet did in the movie!"

    ...shut up.

    But seriously, I could give you some tips if you tell me what areas you;re having problems with.

    OK, the way it was worded kinda sounded like you were asking me if using Crosshairs in your comic was a good idea or not.

    You mean a version of me as Crosshairs? I'd be down for that- in fact, I was thinking of doing the same for my comic.

    Yeah, but it still looks kinda derpy. I'll have to wait until video reviews on that one.

    The lat mode and weapons look awesome, and the robot mode looks cool for the most part, but MY GOSH what the heck is with the wired bendy-forearms?! They look OK in some pictures where it looks like there's something filling in the 'bend' by the elbow, but other pictures just look gosh aweful.

    I mean, I don't mind non-human proportions and body types on alien robots (ROTF Rampage? Fine. ROTF Demolisher? Fine.) But if you ARE going for humanoid proportions, don't make ONE THING look so horrendously off. At least the Twin's giant hands kinda worked.
