Loving those systems, Artasid!

The original Kibosh Frame suit:
ImageKibosh Rendering
Has seen some mediocre success, mostly with it's cheap construction and easy accessible parts. However, the Kibosh has also shown a potential weakness in it's construction that it lacks in defensive armor needed for its operators. Kiboshis have use their small stature and wide range of motion to their advantages, however, there are many who deem it necessary to 'beef-up' the Kibosh's lacking armor. Two Mark 2 prototypes have been constructed to address this issue.
ImageKibosh MK2s
GREEN: d6Rd d6Rd Combat Rifle, d6B Arm Shield, d6B Supply Crate (With repair kits inside)
YELLOW: d6Rh d6Rh d8Rh Dual Flails, d6Y Antenna, d8G No Ranged Weaponry
Though these MK2's use slightly more costly parts and require a slightly more amount of time to produce, critics have seen possible potential in these more armored versions and expect to see operator survival rates increase.

I was rewatching some of my old anime recently and I stumbled upon a spacesuit design that inspired this next random frame. I don't have a name for it so for the time being it is called Random Fatone

ImageRandom Fatone
Fatone: d6Rd d6Rd Combat Rifle, d6B Anti-Projectile Tube, d6Y Floodlight, d6G Rear Thrusters

I like Robosha. Question though, you not give a lot of fluff or explaining like you normal do. Why is that?

Sorry about that, I was actually quite upset at the time I posted it and I was not in the right set of mind to post anything positive, but I've had a day or two to relax and I'm better now.
As for the Rodosha, it was pasrtially inspired by Alexial's recent skeletal frames he posted recently. Using parts like Star Wars Battledroid arms and robo arms to make the overall core. I happen to notice I had a bunch of those Space Pistol parts and since I have used them for body parts before, ie the Bynoks
ImageBynoks, I wanted to try using them again. It took a bit of tinkering, but I think I managed to get an interesting look out of it.

Anyway, I apologize for not posting this with the pictures. I hope you enjoyed and as always, I eagerly await any and all comments you wish to share.

A long while ago, I made some Jenners from the BattleTech/MechWarrior series:
ImageJenner Trio

I've shared them with some of my gaming buddies and they seemed rather impressed. One of my friends (Who also plays MWO) tried to recreate the Yellow Jenner I had here, but he lacked the T-Pieces or enough of the Padlock Bar parts to do so. He has recently asked me to make some more 'Parts Friendly' variants of the Jenner. I managed 2 so far:

ImageB.T. Jenners Alt Builds
Jenners: d6Rd d6Rd d8Rd Medium Lasers and SRM, d6G Jump Jets

I particularly like the grey one with the Mixel Joints, however, it is slightly different than the original Jenner in that the Arm weapon pods are not connected to the 'Hips' of the mech. The red one was an attempt to correct the design flaw with using a Technic 1x1 Brick and sandwiching it between 2 Headlight bricks. Both use more commonly found parts and not a single T-Piece, Travis, Tap or Padlock piece.

After posting my recent Jenners, I realized that the tried and true Jenner loadout is getting rather boreing. So to temporarily spice things up a bit, I built another Mixel Joint Jenner with a Heavy Support loadout. I know it's not canon to the BattleTech/MechWarrior universe, but customization IS part of the MFZ:RA universe (so there, :P lol)

ImageJenner Heavy Support
H.S. Jenner: d6Ra d6Ra d8Ra Dual LRM's, d6B d6B Extensive Extra Armor Plating.

Per your request SamSam, here's an LDD file for anyone interested. It includes the first 2 I posted as well as the most recent Heavy Support Variant.

The Alex Iglesias redesign for MWO is like that (since all mechs must be able to torso twist) and it's my favorite version of the mech!

I noticed that too, but even the MWO version has a lower torso, which these builds lack. I'll have to work that in somehow.

Here are 3 more Mixel Joint Jenners. Because this design is simple and cheap, the only issue I'm currently having with them is getting the right colored parts. I did recently put in a bricklink order so hopefully I will have a complete coherent Jenner Company. I'll post it once they're ready.

ImageMore M.J. Jenners
RED: d6Rh d6Rh d8Rh Armor Shred Claws, d6Y Searchlights, d6G Jump Jets, d8G No Ranged Weaponry
PURPLE: d6Y d6Y Dual Sensor Domes, d6G Jump Jets, d8G No Ranged Weaponry
WHITE: d6Ra d6Ra d8Ra Dual ER PPC's, d6B Extra Armor Plates, d6Y Radar Dish.

Hope you all enjoy, and as always, I eagerly await any and all comments you wish to share.

A very long long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...

Oops. Wrong opening. Let me try that again.

A long long time ago, I once built some unique frames. I called them Brain Frames because the placement of the small dish pieces that made up the majority of their build made the frame look like a giant brain, or something you might find from the Metroid games (Which was the actual inspiration of the build):

ImageBrain Frames

The biggest issue I had with these is that some of the dish pieces had no connections and were just floating parts wedged between others. Needless to say, trying to reconstruct these was a pain in the dairy-air, so I tried to improve upon it. And I think I may have found something that works. I now introduce you the M.P.T. Frame! (Multi Plated Tank)
ImageM.P.T.
M.P.T. d6Ra d6Ra d8Ra Dual Swarmer Missile Pods, d6B Multi Plated Armor, d6Y Targeting Scope.

This one does not suffer from the floating dish parts the previous brain bots had and I am quite proud of it, though I wish black was a lot easier to take pics with. It even has an added feature that some of the plates can open up to see the inside without taking apart the build. Nothing too fancy, but still nice.

I had posted one of these in another thread, but it was more of a prop than a proper introduction to the frame. Here, I hope to amend that.

The StahlKorper (German for Steel Body), though somewhat strange in appearance, is an actual well versatile frame. It was originally designed for light labor workings, however, it's limbs were too weak for the Labor Force's standards. The plans for the StahlKorper were about to become scrapped when an old veteran noticed that though the frame did not seem functional for labor work, it could fit in well as a light scout and skirmisher unit. The old vet approached the designers and using his connections with the local Solar Union branch, the Stahlkorper was slightly redesigned for combat use. During testing, it was also conceived that the StahlKorper's light design could make it ideal for Public Safety Fast Response units. Though the frame had limitations, it's potential seemed to outweigh its flaws.

ImageStahlKorper Frames
GREY SOLDIER: d6Rd d6Rd Combat Pistol, d6B Arm Shield, d6Y Searchlight, d6G Jump Pod
FIRE RESCUE: d6Rh d6Rh Rescue Axe, d6Rd d6Rd Hydropump Water Cannon, d6Y Lightbar Siren, d6G Wheeled Feet

Sorry SamSam, but I do not have the right parts in blue or white at the moment. But I will try to come up with something for you soon.


The STI-04 Impala is a standard humanoid frame that seems to have much potential in combat roles.
ImageSTI-04 Impala frame
So named the Impala because someone had commented how much the torso and upper body have a hood like shaping to it, (complete with headlights when looking at the circular chest access ports). Though the name was meant as a joke, it stuck, but the frame is anything but humorous as its multiple hardpoints can easily modify it for combat in a variety of roles.

STI-04 Impala: d6Rh d6Rh Combat Knife, d6Ra d6Ra Artillery Cannon, d6B Riot Shield
