click picture to go to the mocpage, though you'll get little extra info there


it is awfully red, because I have too many of those bricks(my brother likes formula 1 so a lot of ferrari sets got bought)

the lightsaber was... erm... I actually can't remember wich I built first the mech or the saber.
anyways the saber was not originaly made for this mech, but they just kinda fit together.

Nice mech there: simple but "mechy." :D

Nice design, good articulation.  I think the shoulders could use something to make it look more imposing, pads or armor or spikes.  Maybe huge missile pods.  Those always look good.

a different eye colour would make it way better

Awesome, So do the wings on the back make it fly?

I can't really envision this thing flying so I'd say those are just there to make him jump farther.

They are clearly heat sinks.  Duh.

I like the minifig arms used as fingers. I also think that black eyes would stand out a lot more.

Good articulation, okay armor, but the head is......well boxy. I supose I might be too harsh but if I don't tell the truth you can't improve it as well!

yeah, the head was pretty much an aftertought.
but I have improved, if you look at my second mech(which I posted earlier)
but for playability this one is the best I made.
