I need help building mecha type constructions for stuff. If not right here, where can I find help with this?

Your first stop should be Bryce's site:

I tried there, but they don't tell you how to make mecha, they just post pictures and say "Look, shiny!"

On the left of the Mechahub front page is the "Hub Menu," under which you'll see a series of buttons. There are two you should be looking at in particular: "How To" and "Mecha Chat." How To will give you a series of links that are a good start, and Mecha Chat will hook you up with the most knowledgeable bunch of mecha builders you'll ever meet.

Right. Thank you. Let's see if I get more pictures and no directions this time... here's to hoping I find something.

honestly, the best ways to make something look technilogically advanced is to go into your massive box of legos. grab a handful. using just this handful, keep assembling, taking apart, and re-assembelling until you get something that looks like a torso, or an arm or something. once you have that down, figure out how you did it, and apply the same style to the rest of the creation. soon enough, you crap your pants at an amazing mech.

You know, I might actually try that.

hahaha thanks. i've been really suprised at what i've made. what's even better is i'll look at my boxes and say "wow, i used up all my good pieces". then i'll find a cool brick and attatch it to another. suddenly it makes something cool and i dig further into the pile for another plate of a certain size, or another antenna, and eventually i've got an intricate piece of machinery that i'm tearing through my boxes to find another fin for. i THINK i finally exhausted my supply, but the last time i thought that, i ended up making an entire fleet of 1/10th scale battle cruisers.

You're lucky you don't know some of your Lego pieces and you pick out a really good part and you didn't even know you had it....I wish I didn't know every single piece i've got!
