WOW! I just took a look at the previous version of this thing and only just realized how terrifically clunky and anti-streamlined it is. The arms are bulky, it doesn't close, you name it. So I went and tweaked it. I also used some of Chewk's advice about the arms and, although I didn't shrink them, I did figure out a different way to joint them to the body so that they fit in much better. But I think that the best improvement is the fact that it actually closes around the minifig now. I took these pics with my new methods that I used for the Bolt and so they should be about three times better than the old ones.

About this creation
A little photo showing how the cockpit closes so much better now.
Now the first thing I want to make absolutely clear is this.
I AM NOT IN ANY WAY QUITTING OR DESERTING MOCPAGES!!!
I'm simply going to spend alot less time on here.
I'll still come on to post a new MOC and check up on builders every now and again but I won't be doing it that often. There are two reasons that I'm doing this. One is that I'll be out of computer access all summer long except for Tuesdays and after summer I'm going to start spending my free time on these sites:
http://therebelution.com/ : No explanation. You HAVE to come check this site out. This is the main reason that I'm going to be spending less time in MOCpages from now on.
http://thedesperate.com/home.php : a christian social network akin to facebook
http://www.fusefly.com/ : pretty much the same as thedesperate, except with a homeschooler premise.
Now don't get my wrong, this is a great community and I'm glad to say that I've gained a few friends here and I just figured that I owed you guys an explanation for my future lack of attendance.
Keep on building ~ Nowhereman
Nice work! It's tough to build something so detailed, and yet so small, but you succeed in every way! Check out my mechs, if you find the time. They're not my favorite of the things I've made, but I like them anyway.
I like it

Good gravy! This is a sweet mech you've got going here, now do one in pink ;) Thanks for the nomination for LA! Keep It Studly Sir :)
Nice update, I still think this rocks. BTW, I still need suggestions... Sorry to hear that you're spending less time here, But I can sympathize with the lack of computer use during the summer, my dad is very strict about that with me (and he's German, too...). Great build here, though!
as much as I personaly haven't formed much of a freindship with you, it's still a sad thing to see someone you know leave (even for a small amount of time) I love your builds, and hope to still see some after summer! ^_^
