What do you think? How do you like the advanced LEGO building techniques used in the Ninjago Samurai Mech? Is there any other LEGO mech design that you really like? Have you ever tried to build your own LEGO mech? How did it turn out? Feel free to share in the comment section below. Would love to hear about your own discoveries! 😉
I hope I helped you look at the Ninjago Samurai Mech from a bit different angle. Instead of just building LEGO sets according to the instructions and try to finish them as fast as possible, it is a good idea to pause at times and study the building-techniques used. This will make you appreciate LEGO sets even more and ultimately become a better free-builder.

Overall, the LEGO Ninjago Samurai Mech is an awesome set, with a lot of details and a realistic looking size – although it would never fit on the deck of the Destiny’s Bounty! Here is also a nice video-review by DoctorBrikDady that provides some additional details you might like:
Getting a handle on how to make successful stops for joints is no easy feat. It will take lots of practice to work your way up to the level of the Ninjago Samurai Mech. In the meantime, start experimenting with more limited joint-movement. A good place to begin is with a basic hinge. Then you can try combining that with a swiveling component. Once you’re satisfied with the results, integrate the various mech joints LEGO has to offer. Both the line and offer excellent choices for finding the appropriate joint pieces.
