What is Mechabrick?

Mechabrick is a range of precision moulded plastic kits to convert your minifigs into 1/144 scale fighting robots or 'mecha'. You can upgrade your mechs with weapons and accessories and then battle for supremacy in a fast-paced board game using buildings and scenery built from your favourite plastic toy building bricks.

The Robots:

The robot kits themselves use the torso and legs of any minifig at their core and assemble from over 20 precision-moulded plastic components to make a multi-jointed, fully poseable 3" (75mm) high model. Every part of the robot kits and every external attachment point on the assembled mech is compatible with standard plastic building bricks and minifig accessories allowing infinite customisation.

The robots come with a special two-part 'shield level indicator' gaming base which features a rotatable wheel to show the robot's remaining shield energy as it is depleted during the game.

The Game:

The first game in the Mechabrick product line is 'Gangs of Neon City'. Set in the back-streets of a futuristic far-eastern metropolis the game uses durable plastic gaming boards (supplied in the game box) printed with a brick-standard grid pattern (4-bricks square) upon which movement and shooting range of the robots is measured.

It's up to you and your imagination to build, change and rebuild the buildings and scenery on your game board from plastic toy building bricks and create your perfect battle environment.

The game sets two or more players in a head-to-head battle of turn-based play using 'action points' to choose whether each robot should move, shoot or both in each turn. Customisation and upgrades to your robots are key to a decisive win, but be careful not to weigh down your mech with too many upgrades and make them too slow to fight!

The printed rulebook supplied with the boxed game is only 4 pages long and is designed to be fun and fast-paced for all the family. We will be publishing free add-ons and expanded rules for the game to keep even the most hardened gamers interested for many years to come.

The boxed game includes four of the 'Wakazashi-Class' mech kits (two black and two white), four plastic game boards, a decal sheet to customize your mechs and your scenery, two D6 dice and a full rule/instruction booklet.

Why Kickstarter?

We are a small UK based toy design company and games/minifig accessories are a new direction for us... in fact, they are more of a pursuit of personal dreams made possible only by Kickstarter. Although we believe this to be an incredibly cool idea and are confident of its success, we need to raise the funds to cover the high up-front costs of making precision injection moulding tools to manufacture the robot kits. If successful, we aim to support the Mechabrick range with further new products, rule updates, instructions for building new buildings and scenery for your game board and an expanding backstory for many years to come.

Kickstarter Exclusives:

Shipping:

We have included a nominal amount for world-wide shipping from the UK for all overseas pledgers. This is just £5 for pledge levels involving models and £10 for pledge levels including the boxed game. Please be sure to add this to your pledge level amount if you are outside the UK.

EXTRAS!...

By popular demand we have now added the option to add extra items to your basic pledge level allowing you to customise your rewards bundle.

Please choose the extra items you want from the list below, add the stated amount to your pledge level for each extra you want, then we'll ask you in the survey at the end of the project what items you want for the amount you have pledged.

Risks and challenges

Dubreq are an established company with a number of mass-market products under our belts. That said, we have set ourselves the challenge of meeting or exceeding the quality and tolerances of minifigs themselves on all our Mechabrick products so attention to detail and a good relationship with our moulding company will be key. With that in mind we are working with a UK based moulder who is experienced in making small, high precision plastic parts who we believe can meet our needs.

Physical packing and fulfillment of the Kickstarter rewards will be our next challenge. To help with this we have secured the help of a local fulfillment company who can work from our packing lists to dispatch all the rewards in a timely manner.

To ensure we have enough time to get the products right and get the rewards shipped we have allowed ourselves at least 1 month more than we anticipate we will need to go through the manufacturing and shipping process.
