I originally started this as a lousy hardsuit, but, well, I ended with this, and I'm pretty happy with it.

Any shots where the pilotdude is inside the suit? Looks nifty, aside from some color-consistency issues.

The pilot looks like Gordon Freeman  :D , and the thing itself is also great! It really looks Post-Apoc.
Your avatar is awesome by the way.

Not bad, but the pilot seems a bit exposed. I take it the mismatched colors are intentional?

I really like the look of this.  Reminds me of the mechs in the third Matrix movie.  And I don't think it's too big of a deal if the pilot is exposed or not because it looks right this way.

I like ths nice use of parts that makes your Mecha a perfect Minifig scale weapon. Probably you could make an entire squad of these. Those other Matrix Mecha, while to scale for what they are and awesome are a bit Power gamer big for most peoples games stats wise. Not that that should stop people.
