About this creation
This is my first attempt at mech building. Although it was a bit frustrating figuring out how to handle joints (thanks to Mark Neumann for his very helpful joints advice) and weight balancing, I'm quite happy with the resulting end product. This is my own original design, but with heavy style influences from anime mechs and inspiration from Soren Roberts' detailing work.

All comments and criticism are welcome. Click on the Brickshelf button for a few more pics, including some WIP evolution photos. Thanks for looking.

Re: pleh!'s request for leg construction pics: The bare legs can be seen here, (the middle ones are just click hinges, and the ankle is done using this part), and also look at the notes on this Flickr photo for info on the shoulder joints. The rest is just tacking on parts to make things look good. Hope this helps.

Re: dillon's request for info on building the head: I've uploaded some constructions pics which should give an idea of how it was built - [1] [2]

   Showroom photo. Green is a nice color, but I learned that it seems to be a bit rare for Lego. Do green 1x1 round plates exist?

   Leg closeup. I used light bley on this MOC, which I think looks pretty good with white and black. Now I only hate dark bley.

   Leg closeup - side view. This shows my attempt at having a continuous black and bley stripe along the leg. Why is everything #4?

   Cannon closeup. I'm happy with how these turned out, although I'm thinking they could use some more mechanical detailing?

   The legs are quite hefty and can stand on their own. Fear the Chicken Leg of Doom.

   Leg backside detailing.

   View of the cannons from both sides. They kind of look like little green versions of my Izanami's Revenge ship.

   Best friends 4-eva! I should add some photo sticker-style neon pink flowers to the borders of this pic.

5/5 I love the simplistic design, on top of how it has enough detail to stand out! My only concern: does it blend?

this is incredible. the legs look a bit clumsy, and its thruster system doesn't exactly look like it could lift this thing, but otherwise this is great. those cannons are unbelievably well detailed, far better than anything I could come up with, and that's coming from someone who's been building Mechs for nearly a year. great work, especially for a first design.

Great job!! I love the color scheme (green is my fav color), the artillery cannons (I love the green like in the middle, smart), and the cockpit. It is just all great. Keep up the excellent work.

I love it!! That is one beautiful design, particularly for your first mech. It looks like a good base platform for multiple variants. Very nice work Dennis.

Well done. I personally liked the guns without too much mechanical stuff, they blend in with the rest of the mech. The green accents came out great. If I were to critique anything, I would make the legs slightly longer. Nice mech.

Absolutely gorgeous work my friend. That's a beautiful first attempt at mecha. It took me a few tries before I came anywhere close to being happy with my mecha work. Kudos, Nathan
