Robotech Masters Red Bioroid, as flown by Zor Primeís clone against the armies of the Southern Cross. (Hope Iíve got my Robotech history right; feel free to correct any errors Iíve made ;) The original inspiration was to built both the bioroid and itís hoversled which it flies into battle with. Hmm, an anti-grav sled able to carry huge mecha Ė those Robotech Masters sure were smart cookies!
My first bipedal mech. I built the bioroid and started on the hoversled but soon ran out of parts (and money!) Must admit it lost some of itís appeal without the sled, you may notice some areas of the figure appear unfinished as I lost interest. Still, it was a great learning experience. Iím getting better at SNOT and some of the bioroid Iím quite happy with, such as the toes. The head I settled on is the third design I tried. Originally it had that no-neck look that they seem to have in the cartoon but I preferred to have the head free to swivel.

Main body segments.
Ryo will do as a stand in for Zor Prime and his purple mullet: "now to find that perky miss Dana Sterling..."
wow, this is really good. i love the arms ad legs, and even thogh the body is a little square shaped, the whole thing desrves 5/5 for the overall appearance. try building mechs with more color to them, monochrome gets boring fairly fast.
