After about a year of building and rebuilding, I finished ALM-011 just in time for Brickfest 2002. Then I went home and took some photos of it with an old film camera. I was going to wait to upload them until I retook them with my new camera, but I was in no hurry to spend hours recreating these poses. Two years later I found the pictures and decided that they were better than nothing.
For the past few months it's been on display at the hobby store that I work at. During that time I've gotten so many offers for it, I decided that before I put it back I needed to make some instructions for it. Although, considering it took me two years to post pictures of it, I have no idea when I'll finish the instructions.
Lovely mech and lovely comments aside the pictures, I enjoyed it!
I like it

i wish there was a rating above excellent. i wish there were two. this is the best, most complete mech design i have seen yet. the work on the hands are genius. the simple yet detailed look over all, what a brilliant design. you are the nnenn of mecha!
I love the way you think. People, take a leaf out of this guy's book- when you build a mech, build a MECH. Don't build a load of weapons for a mech and base the mech around the weapons. Truly a great philosophy.
Incredible. Without a doubt one of the best singular mechs out there. Astounding form and attention to detail make this a mech at (or possibly above) the level of mech-making legends like Izzo and Moko. Truly a terrific build. Keep on building ~ Nowhereman
Very good job, yeah i could tell AC for sure, ive tried to make so AC designs, its a pain im limited on money and bricks, i always fall short on joints and such making mechs, cause i dont like destroying some of my old designs, but hopfully ill ahve some nice mech designs soon, very good job keep it up
FINALLY!! Someone else whose primary focus is the mech and not the weapons! This is unique in a whole other way, I have never seen whole sections of model mounted at 45 degrees like that, it uses bricks in a way that would otherwise be impossible (hence the cool cockpit). I have never seen one of your mechs before this but after this exceptional example I think you have just gained another fan.
You should re-photograph digitally, I know dozens of people who would KILL for that as a wallpaper!
This is by far the greatest Lego mech Ive ever seen. Whoever disagrees can kiss it and leave. I saw this on the brickfest and have been lookin for it. The search is over and greatness is found. Now I'll go eat some food and play some video games. Later.
Love the poseability alot! Great expressive hands! It's all about the little personal touches that make it special like the treads on the heels and the grey ski over the eye. It's rad to say the least! More please!
Impeccable. I love seeing how other people build mecha bodies and this is just an extraordinary example. I've been avoiding my ball joints for being too bulky, but you've made really excellent use of them here.
This is a fantastic mech. I love the hands, the tire treads in the feet, the action poses, the gun, the color scheme, the head, the proportions, well pretty much everything. I only wish it had a cockpit with a minifig. I can't wait to see pics of the ALM-014. Awesome job.
**edited after the cockpit shots were added**
Oh yeah! I love that four-piece canopy, with sections opening in all different directions. Sweeeeet.
Kyle: It does have a cockpit, and the jointing for it's opening is incredible. Harass Adam until he puts up pics. Adam: What can I say that I didn't in person? Beautiful proportions, beautiful poses and any number of ideas I wish I'd had first.
