Thor mech Lego model-10

Thor/Summoner Mech

Thor/Summoner Heavy Mech Background I consider the Thor (original designation Summoner), a heavy (70 tons) mech, to be a departure from Clan Jade Falcon’s elegant mech designs based upon raptors. For comparison, check out the models of the Gyrfalcon and the Black Lanner (there will be other posts in the future which illustrate this point). […]

Vulture/Mad Dog Mech

Vulture/Mad Dog Heavy Mech Background Although designated the Mad Dog by its Clan designers, the name never really caught on.

Mad Cat Mk. 4 Mech (Age of Destruction)

Mad Cat Mk. 4 Heavy Mech Background The Mad Cat Mk. 4 mech needs no introduction. The official name of the Mad Cat Mk. 4 is the Savage Wolf, but nobody ever uses that designation (note that most Mad Cat variants except for the Mk. 4 are officially known as “Timber Wolf”).  “Mad Cat” is derived […]
