Two childhood favorites are coming together thanks to this awesome blend of LEGO and Pokemon to create a one-of-a kind Pokemon mecha hybrid. A Flickr user by the name of Stormbringer used LEGO to create famous Pokemon like Charzard and Blastoise and turn them into mechs akin to the Jaegers from Pacific Rim, with operators on the the inside.

The idea is a fascinating one, allowing for a great deal of imagination and creativity to go into the storyline and playmode for this ‘Poke Mechas’ as they’re called. These Pokemon LEGO hybrids are a boy’s playtime dream, as well the fantasy of many adult males who are part of the Sci-Fi and/or Anime fandom.

The blending of genres and two mediums together creates an eclectic mashup of Anime, Robots, Sci-Fi and, of course, LEGO. Stats for Anime-Inspired Block Strcutures Trending: Older & Mild
