The XO-01 Bipedal Mech by J0N0TR0N1C SYSTEMS :/ Sweet Rides for an Uncertain Future
About this creation
The XO Mech is based on the "standard" Exo-Force design found in 8102 Blade Titan
and 8103 Sky Guardian.
The right arm articulates at the shoulder (flexion, extension, abduction, rotation), elbow (flexion, extension), wrist (360° supination/pronation), and fingers (flexion, extension). The left arm also articulates in three places with 3 degrees of freedom at the shoulder and 2 at the shoulder.
18.5 cm high at shoulder
14 studs wide
7 studs front to back

I feel like the mech cockpit is a bit too...open.
Thanks for the thoughtful comment. I know exactly what you mean. My other mechs--and most of my MOCs for that matter--do have fully enclosed cockpits. This problem is present in the Exo-Force models that this MOC is based on as well. I struggled with it and this was the best solution I could come up with from the parts available without a total re-design of the cockpit. I really like the idea of a fully enclosed detachable cockpit. Perhaps I'll work on a revision or try to incorporate that idea into my next Mech MOC. Thanks again.
Everyone else pretty much said what I could have said about this mech. However, I feel like the mech cockpit is a bit too...open. What I mean is that the majority of mechs (as well as its rival category of mecha) tend to have completely closed driver cockpits and/or detachable cockpits. The problem here is that the cockpit seems to have too much of an air gap, particularly along the top of the cockpit, which, in a fight, could prove to be fatal if some debris penetrated that gap. Other than that, nice job with the mech. If my words do not make sense to you, then perhaps looking at other mechs on MOCPages might give you a better visual explanation than I can give you by my mere words.
