I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Seems like a lot of effort has gone into detailing the legs, what with the pistons and lionshead kneepad, but then the arms look terribly flat – I can understand the upper surface is intended to look like an eagle wing, but pistons and a hinged elbow arrangement on the underside would have looked a lot better.

    Seems very top-heavy on the torso, which I feel would have worked a lot better as a cohesive look if it had continued with bulkier shoulder guards.

      To me it looks like more of a problem with too many different aesthetic genres. The upper arm and fist look like art noveau toasters while the carapace looks like an industrial era locomotive cowl with the legs looking like a more traditional Scibor style grimdark interpretation.

      There could be a neat silhouette there with some modification and spread out some of those surface details.

      Now, all of that said, the thing I find to be heresy, is if you step back the whole thing has a “tacked on” look. The guns look tacked on for sure, and would have really benefited from a more integrated look. Instead they look like a bit of spare kit that was just glued on because the model was supposed to have those particular weapons. Moreover, the torso down to the legs looks like the things that are typical of Scibor’s wheelhouse.. and definitely comparable to the other similar figures available in the webstore. One could certainly get the impression that the model started as one of those and a last minute decision was made to make it bigger, so stuff was slapped on.
