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.
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.

Nice mech there: simple but "mechy." :D
It's a secret to everybody.

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.

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

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

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

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.
