Single Set Challenge: 41545, 41546, 41547

My Single Set Challenge builds from the Weldos, the first tribe from Series6 Mixels.

Left to right:
41545 d6W d6W d6Rd d6Rd d6Y d6G + station (left)
41546 d6W d6W d6Rh d6Rh d6B d6Y d8G d8Rr d8Rr d8Rr + station (right)
41547 d6W d6W d6Rd d6Rd d8Rd d6B d6Y d6G (yes it has 5 systems...)

Thoughts:
- While not high on Mixel ball joint count, these sets have some really good parts lists in a very usable color palette.
- 41545: I like the shape of this frame with the round chest, fighterplane cockpit, and jetthrusters, but struggled to get arms/weapons from the set. Easily remediable with a few non-SSC parts though. I like these legs/feet, but there's not enough in the one set to fully develop them.
- 41546: This is the third or fourth attempt at a frame from this set. I like the big head (it's got a Cherno Alpha vibe), but I wasn't really feeling this set.
- 41547: This frame got a little big, but I really liked the shape.

C&C solicited as always!

Lefty (41545): Has a nice Terran Reaper feel to it. I think the arms look fine, not too small.

Middle (41546): Great use of the parts on hand, very Chubish. The shield stands out strikingly, and I like that even the exposed studs seem purpose built; very spartan.

Righty (41547): I think my favorite, reminds me of the Macross. Its hard pull off a fat frame at this scale, but you did admirably with a SSC no less.

Um, wow. These are all really really good. I can't say enough about 41546, it's my favorite frame build out of the bunch.
But, what I really love are those stations. They're simple and could probably use revision using non-SSC parts, but they're exactly the right size, completely recognizable and I just adore the half-boulder as a base.

These are all brilliant. It's amazing how you're always able to wring a humanoid frame out of the sets. Especially 41546 - I love what a complete-looking, thematic frame you've made with such a difficult set of parts. Those arms are a trick I'll have to remember.

41545's gun is a highlight. Nice arrangement of the textured bricks. And 41547 has a great symmetrical stocky look. The underslung arm cannons are a nice detail and it's cool how you've got all those lovely angles on the rear. Although correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the rightmost station built from Forx (41546)? And a great looking radar station it is.

Thanks, all!

You sir, are correct. Looks like I forgot where that station came from when it came time for photos. Does that make 41546 even better? Edited above.

Nothing to add to this. I'm learning a lot from your builds, especially for humanoid designs.
