Hello, welcome to another one of my M.O.C.s, It was originally meant to be my 300th post but I was off, anyway let us begin.

This time we have something different, instead of something entirely original I was inspired by an already existent part of set. That being the small Skeleton Mech from the Ninjago Day of the Departed set, 70592 Salvege M.E.C. Here's the original for comparison;

Skeleton Mech

  The torso had some slight changes with a revamped rib-cage utilizing the Exo-force arms with barbs inserted instead of the awkward skeleton arm. The back lost it's formerly uncovered, bland grey block with a printed skulkin symbol and slop pieces

Starting with his arms, his upper arms has black armor slope pieces. The forearm also has slight armor,

His hands are arguably the biggest change loosing the rather inflexible exo-arms with three fingers, The middle one still uses the Exo-arms with the same silver, dark blades

Another major change is his legs, Now they utilize more bony pieces.

And the legs have been given the fabulously hard to pull off, KNEES! Yes I know quite the hard thing to grasp. The feet are wider to help support the Mech even the original had small feet for it's size and thus was very front heavy, sorry for the colors, didn't have a one-by-two plate in black.

Now for a quick look at the custom Skulkin I made for this M.O.C. combines in my opinion, the best of the original Skulkin, The DotD, and Legacy Skulkin,

Here's a size comparison of The Skulkin Mech with a similar size

Y'know, this is actually fits the criteria to be an entry to enter the Ninjago Legacy Contest, if you want to enter, that is.

Anyway, it does looks to be a more menacing version of the original! And I never knew that the Legacy Samurai Mech is that small haha!

Wait is that still going on? Can I enter it? do I need to change the title?

Yeah hopefully that is enough for your entry to cut it. And good move on renaming the title.

If you're asking on feedback for your MOC, I would probably add something to the toes and also to the red piece that's holding to the fingers. The black pieces on the shoulders would be good use if you have more of those. And I would also suggest turning the hand into a full fledged claws as that would make the mech more menacing but the single fingered swords look not too bad in your image of it battling the Samurai Mech.
