Hi all, Nic and I have been going through the process of producing new mecha in white metal. Leaning toward the Robotech style, I've got a bunch of mechs, tanks and engineering equipment to get happening. So, for early birds, the very first one is here. Also, everything is modular, like Lego, so don't let an individual model box your thinking in. You can hybridize these robots till the cows come home. Everything is set to the 1:285 scale which is also Battletech.

The first one is the Iron Lion, design and picture by yours truly. And this is his metal mini from Nic, I'm absolutely amazed at how well they turned out. :)

This is the fused leg model for quick builds.

This is the segmented legs for full posing and modularity with other mecha.

And this is the image that originally I made.

Which I convert to CAD… This take a fair bit of effort….

If we manage to sell enough units, we'll be on our way to making the next one and so on. These are some of the items we'd like to produce. These are low resolution test prints from my home 3d printer.

Also, Nic has graciously accepted taking orders with his usual customers. So if you already talk with Eureka Miniatures, by all means, add some Iron Lions. :) For note, he's 85 grams and pretty long @ 65mm, being one of the heavy, turret-class mecha. The Default kit Version 1 (Fused Legs) and Version 2 (Segmented legs) are the same price @ AUD25 each.

If you'd like to know more, you can always poke at the website. Or buzz me on here (while I'm still getting used to this site), or Thanks for looking! Any questions? Please ask.

That is a Monster. Literally.

Racking my brain to think how to justify buying one or two . . .

Hi Covert Walrus, if it helps with a bit of info, he's a rare unit. Yes, monster sized and monster ordinance. He's the 2nd largest mechs in the range, only just a fraction off the Angel of Wrath mech (and I do mean a fraction). So, consider him a power-player, terror-extraordinaire on the battlefield. :)

Mind you, what games do you think he'd suit? (I don't get to play them unfortunately, so I don't really know.) Just, in the game we play, he's literally the mountain and insanely deadly.

Bulk Pack of 4 mechs.
I'm adding the Kit Maul, Gunhead, Thunderhead and Iron Lion together as one box set.
The others are the ones sold at the expo (some time back), (we sold a lot of these!) However, they are slightly different scale to the massive Iron Lion. So please be aware of that. Though, it's still very close in size.
I'm pretty much categorizing these extras as discontinued stock. So here are the mechs in the kit,

Price will be AUD56 for all four in one set.
