I built this to prove to myself the Griffin was not just a one off and I could build two legged mecha. I wanted to build a civilian Mecha as they rarely seem to get built, though I have to admit it was difficult to abandon guns!
This reminds me of the lifters from Aliens. Really cool. I wouldn't say nice job for this, because you are a pro (That would sound demeaning of me seeing as you are of greater skill), but nice job you got! I am hoping to become a LEGO designer some day. The style I build in is that of the sets. I strive for playabilty. The reason I am saying a lot is because I don't do social networking. MOCpages is my social network. I would love to ask you some questions about what it is you do as a set designer.
