Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack sounds like a Japanese game involving giant robots and, well, that's not terribly far off from the truth. Only it's not a video game, it's a tabletop game. And instead of using plastic pieces, it uses LEGO.

The thinking behind the game is that, while coming with an established ruleset and canon, by using LEGO parts players will be able to design their own combat units instead of relying on the talents of the in-house staff.


When completed, it's hoped Mobile Frame Zero will ship with "play instructions, building instructions, even instructions for how to make your own setting."

You can read more about the project, including its story, below.
