Hey Man, So I Looked This MOC Over, And It's Fairly Solid, Though There Are Issue I Had With The MOC. But First, I really like the coloring you have, it really suits the Phoenix aspect, another aspect I enjoyed was the armored look to the MOC, it gave it a Merc feel though not your typical Merc. Onto the Issues, I really feel that the Head region is too tall, personally I felt that the head itself could use some work as well, the two balls for the ball and socket joints sticking out gave me a Teddy Bear feel, not something a Merc would go for. I also suggest reworking the head mainly due the shoulder regions being slightly bare, if your were to bring down the head and give it a more elaborate shaping, it would make the shoulders fit right in. Overall, you have some solid aspects with this MOC, I just feel that the Head region is what is creating the main issues but I think it's totally within your skill set to rework the head to be lower and wider. Nice work on this. Also, don't forget to add this to the group.
Cool! However, He doesn't look very much like a mercenary to me, more like a Samurai, anyway I personally don't like his shoulders, I feel they're a bit bland, I think if you filled that up with something it look nice :) I also feel you need to make everything on him a lot... this isn't the right word but tighter. He seems to have a lot of gaps all over his body, I feel it be best if you make everything more compact and together. Also I feel his custom head is a bit all over the place, but still other than those things he looks cool! I think his torso look very cool!

AWESOME!!! Except, his shoulders look a little.....empty. They could use some more armor.
Pretty good bro. :) I really like his legs. (Nice use of the Legend leg guards ;D) His arms look kinda twisted though, and his chest looks...feminine. Some shoulder armor would be nice. And you could color coordinate him a bit better. Sorry for sounding mean. :P What are bros for? Keep it up bud! :)
Ok, just came back from school. Well good and bad. Less hf pieces and awkward parts is good. Legs look nice. I like the sword. Chest armor is ok. However the neck is too high. The head is built kinda funny and stretches out too far and looks wierd. The upper arms are too wide for the body. Or the torso is too skinny for the arms. You really need to work on deciding. Do you want to be thinner and agile or big and strong. Also, fill in more space on the lower arms. Finally, what's up with the character itself? Destrin the Super-Mega-Alpha -Hyper-Phoenix-Fire-Turbo-Mercenary-Assassin-All Powerful-Lord-Golem-Better than anyone else-Ninja. Seriously? Its like reading the title of a Street Fighter game! Is he a ninja, a guardian, a mercenary, a phoenix, a toa, make up your mind! Ok. Im done now. Overall, again, not blown away like you said. He's pretty cool and improves on somethings from the past but adds in new bad things. Keep in the good stuff that you have now and adjudt the bad. Stop changing the ENTIRE moc every update because then you'll be getting no where. And work on the character itself too.
Ok well good and bad news. First good: the body is really cool and good, it's just that the back needs more or bigger armor. Legs: Really cool on him with the HF pieces. THe lower legs are well done too. Maybe add some red barraki spikes.
Bad news : The arms are too technic and look awkward on him. I really don't like em, sorry. The head is a good attempt at custom, but it is too high up on the moc. But overall, it's a good job. 4/5
