Here is my new mech.

I was testing out some new legs and found that dark green and black look really cool together. I remembered I had that snake head from the viking ship and I was on my way.

I am a bit disappointed with the arms and torso.

You're welcome Be-nk! :tongue:

Now that I can see what is, I can comment! The Viking piece looks excellent in there, I've been wanting to do one of these for awhile now, you're my inspiration. :wub:

Marvellous! I really love this one!

If a mech like this would be available from TLC, I´d buy it instantly.

That looks great, Benk! It's so bulky and macho, it could snap any other mech in half like a toothpick! Well, maybe not wiht those tiny little hands. :tongue: I guess that explains the gun. :grin: About the gun, I love the semi-attached technique of the clip, the use of that wheel cover thingy, the rod all lined up in there and that little orange blast of colour at the end. :laugh: Great job!

A wonderful mecha in a beautiful color scheme, with an impressive limb design and a very cool jetpack, a really clever use
of parts like that Viking serpent head and the mudguard and these two plates with clip for that fine rifle, well done indeed.  :cry_happy:

Fantastic! I don't think I can add anything that hasn't been said by anyone else. Dark green is a very cool Lego colour, and to see it used like this is great. Nice work Benk
Yep, I'm back! Be afraid...

I really like this mech.  The colors are great, and overall everything is very cohesive.  For whatever reason, I can't help but want the serpent head piece to flip around (with the mouth facing towards the ground).  Did you try that?

I did try that but it left a gap at the back of the head, the arms lost alot of movement and well... I could have solved it but I got lazy and quickly finished it :blush:.  I also think it would look better the other way round.

One more thing - I had this cool rocket launcher for it but I kind of forgot about it when I took pictures so I only have a WIP pic of it and it is very grainy:

Very Awesome, I've tried so hard to make a decent mech, I always get caught up with the head or cockpit.  The sides of his body is brilliant work!
