These look really neat!

The "heads" look properly sunken in and well-protected, and the use of that grill piece on the shoulders looks great!
I also love the sensor arrangements near the back, they almost look like the hilts of sheathed swords on their backs :D

I said on the Discord group, those are really nice!

You really took the chest and made something completely new around it. That mudflap piece is surprisingly difficult to work with, the worst part is that it has a 1x2 brick shaped connection point that really limits things. Wish I could see a break down or at least a sideways view pic to see if you did it the same way I did.

Now that you mentioned it, I can see that.

It wouldn't have happened without your Peachman Roudy.

Delegator Maximillian, on Flickr.

The start of a new squad of Maximillians. I've been experimenting a little with these, working on palette swaps and some minor parts changes, to make each squad unique in its own way.

Spiky! Definitely not something I would want to get into close combat with.

Okay, so maybe I'm going a little nuts with this design. This variant was created because a coworker said a previous version looked like a Medabot.

Agreed, the back rack is awesome! :D
The colors work out nicely and I like their big guns.
What are the shoulder gun bits supposed to represent?
