This thing could use some serious polishing. The thing that most needs to be fixed are the legs though. They seem far too skinny to support the frame you've put on top of them. Second, they're too close together. I would suggest using somehting other than exo-force parts to make joints, as well.

Other than that, it looks good. Is this your first Mecha?

C'est tres unusual... My main complaint is that it's armed, and does not appear to have surrendered yet. I kid, I kid.

No, I have to agree with Veers. While the concept seems good, the design itself is somewhat lacking. The unorthodox leg design makes me think you were going for reverse-knee'd/chicken, but it's standing tall. Unfortunately, the arms make me think gorilla. Much too long, much too bulky. I like the cockpit however, although the things on top don't fit.

So, take a look at the old EF mechs to see how LEGO does it, or mecha hub to see how AFOLs do it, and go from there. Sorry I can't be more positive about it, but it's a bit of a mess right now...

Is cool.

I agree that the legs are wierd and awkward, but i meant them to be. And they couldn't really work any other way ;)

And, though I agree the legs are fairly sucky, I like the arms. That's just my thoughts though, and I'm the creator.

Hell, I'm just happy on FBTB took time to comment on one of my MOCs.
