Kickstarter for a wargame using Lego

Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack Kickstarter:

Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack is the tenth anniversary edition of Vincent Baker's Mechaton. Build yourself a company of robots called mobile frames out of LEGO, give yourself some objectives to defend, lay out a table with a few friends, and fight! We're making sure you've got all the parts we've got so you can have the most fun you can with the game. You'll get play instructions, building instructions, even instructions for how to make your own setting. ...Kickbacks

Soren and Joshua are working hard to bring some unique, limited edition stuff that we can't possibly mass-produce to you guys.

Decals are the first. Designed by Joshua A.C. Newman specifically for the Kickstarter, you'll receive sheets of diecut stickers to apply to your companies. They'll include stickers for all three factions including industrial markings, rank insignia, religious slogans, and kill markers.

The Mobile Frame Garage is a kit thoughtfully designed by Soren to give you a pile of parts appropriate for building mobile frames. Designed for players who don't have a big bin of LEGO at home, tiny hinges and other parts give you all you need for a company of five mobile frames. Presented in neutral colors, you can liven up your particular company by adding in parts from any LEGO set.

Soren's Special Edition kits are designed and hand-assembled by Soren to give you real punch right out of the box. There are only two of each faction, so choose wisely.

A custom-designed company by Joshua will set you up right. You'll chat with Joshua, who will help you figure out what faction you like the most, how you want to play tactically, and custom design and assemble your company.

A custom-designed company by Soren will make your company the most coveted in all of LEGO mecha. You'll consult with Soren and Joshua, working out what faction you want and how you want it to work tactically, and then Soren will build it up for you.
Via Penny Arcade, and in light of today's NSFW Penny Arcade, let me mention that I'm jstruan (jstruan @ gmail) on Draw Something.
