Hello, like I mentioned to Solscud007, I made a mech for Darth Vader

This is the 3rd version:
Arms are raised, I thought the previous one looked awkward with the arms lower than the cockpit...  
Darth Vader comes to test his mech, which has been guarded by Snowtroopers

Back:

Weapons hasn't been changed,
Right Arm is still a blade:

Left Arm is a shield plus blaster:

No changes in the Lower Body:

Cockpit:

Inside Cockpit:

Vader couldn't actually fit in the previous ones, only the torso up did, but I modified it so he could

C&C please!
Thanks,
Ceroknight

it reminds me of a walker how Darth Vader is exposed sitting on top like that. I like the red light saber feel but think it needs to be more practical. I like the tie advanced style wing shields.

Sorry I misread your description. I thought the trans red cylinders was the lightsaber. But after second glance I see the actul light saber blade.

If the trans red cylinders were to be the light saber, the cutting edge is blocked by the wing/shield.

Yeah sort of like that gundam strike. Also I would make the suggestion of using the boat smooth curved circles to cover up the shoulders. Then it would smooth out the design of the shoulder piece.

Awesome job, ceroknight.

The shields give it a Tie-Fighter like look. :thumbup:
You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads! Now evidently my cycloptic colleague informs me that that cannot be done.

Looks menacing.
But why the shield and blaster in one hand. Now you can't hide and shoot at the same time?
the Turtle moves...

Why would it need to hide if, like you said, it's "menacing"?  :tongue:
Nah, it is possible for a shield to be held in the same arm as a blaster, especially if it's a robot.
Think of the shield as part of the mech while the blaster is separate :classic:
