[Mechaton] I did the Mechaton/Metal Frame Zero Kickstarter! (I... have no LEGOs)

So, I loved the Xevoz toys that came out a few years ago.
I love putting stuff together. I love Gundam toys.
I saw the Mechaton/MFZ kickstarter and said "This looks like my cup of tea."

And then I realized I have no LEGOs.

Any recommendations for good ways with currently available sets to get into Mechaton building?

OH, and a LEGO store just opened up in the mall near me. Bonus!

Guide me, oh Mecha ABS Sages!

Good thing about a Lego store for Mechaton players? In addition to sets, they also sell bricks/parts in bulk. The selection may not always be what you need, but it's definitely helpful.

I did note that and figured that would be a tremendous boon. I just need to figure out what I might need to buy.

Oh, and the price. I didn't have a chance to figure out how the LEGO buffet is priced.

The Mechaton Frame Design thread is good to browse for ideas. The "official" frames are super awesome looking, but I also think it's important to just buy some likely-looking kits and see what you can turn them into. Once you've done that, you'll have a better idea of what can be done and what pieces you want to focus on hunting down. Gnomick and I had a little discussion about that starting here, and he got some good little bots out of it. :)
