When I first saw this, I thought "That's pretty cool"; when I saw more pictures, it changed to "Wow, that's awesome!" But when I saw the way the suit opened up, I had to pull my jaw up off the ground and shove my eyes back in their sockets. This MOC of yours is truly amazing, and you should be proud of it.
This is exceptional, on the grounds of how well it encloses and fits the pilot's limb-structure (and tightly-fit, too). It just plain looks good, but you squarely met all the Contest guidelines, too. From the bohrok shield as the visor, to the nice technic greebling - just good stuff. 9 points from me.
This looks amazing! To me, it doesn't look as much as a suit of armour but as an underwater survival and fight suit, you know, with the glass bubble on top and all the tubes on the back. Still awesome!
Dang, now I wish I knew about this contest, cause I am a lifetime fan of anything mecha. The way it unfolds is yet another example of your skills as a MOCist. My only problem is the lack of weapons on this hard suit. Given it's construction however, I get the feeling it's pushing the joints and can hardly stand up. An I don't think it's ugly, hard suits are always a thing of beauty.
Dang! This is just amazing! You've commented on my torso's before, now it's my turn. Really, on both of them it's a great design. The chest is a beaut, and the holsters all across the mech are ingenious. You're one of those people who has managed to take a concept and actually get it to work. Bravo noodles.
Dangit, Noodles, why are you so brilliant!? I love how you managed to take a moc that was so well put together, and somehow managed to use the connection points you had left to attach this mech to. Honestly, I would be happy to have HALF the talent that you've shown you have in your recent mocs. Keep it up! :D
I have to say, this is probably the best looking and most maneuverable suit in the competition so far...as long as Zhytem stays inside it :D It ain't very pretty in its little lump by itself, but the detail and raw power the suit emulates when occupied will probably be able to send you to the next round. Great job!
