Lorraine the flailing mecha-bot-oid. This is probably my first real attempt at building something mecha. They're pretty fun to build, although you have to use a lot of fragile connections which I'm not that fond of.

Most of this was inspired by Kidgunsmoke on Flickr. He makes a lot of robots.

Jets, because what robot DOESN'T have jets?

Arm raised, so you can see the torso assembly. This is really the only "complex" part, the rest I'm pretty sure you can figure out on your own.

The 4-way brick at her neck is only attached to the rest by a single stud, so if you knock it over that's guaranteed to come off. The feet are kind of wimpy too, but not at such an extreme degree. She kept collapsing when I was taking the pics, but now she stands up just fine. May have been an unstable surface.
