Update (March 11, 2012): Thanks for the suggestions, everyone! Due to a flaw in my model spotted by EB member Nick-Name, I am extending my suggestion deadline to March 14, 2012. (See the most current version of this model here.)
Samurai X (a.k.a., Nya) is one of my most favorite Ninjago characters. The design of her minifigure is awesome. I thought it was neat that she was getting her own mech in the summer (as seen at Toyfair), but at the same time, I thought her mech didn't look quite right to me, so I built my own power suit for her.
Click any image to enlarge it (except the 5th one).

My MOC was inspired by the following sets:
9448 Samurai Mech (shoulder pads and overall design)
4528 Green Lantern (head protection)
7711 Sentry (hand rockets)
6227 Breez (leg rockets, twin-bladed sword, and the arm rockets' mount)
Before you ask, I do intend to buy the bricks for this model (sans special effects) via LEGO's online Pick A Brick store. (I already have the minifigure, the windscreen, and a few other pieces.) However, I would like some feedback on the design before I make my purchase and build this MOC in real life, please. Thank you.
I should have real-life pics ready sometime around April (approximately).
