I'm really proud of how this one turned out, and I think it rivals the Budgie for my favorite system builds too. Those Niffler pieces are just too cute, and I knew I had to use them eventually. I thought they fit quite good here.

At the end of the build I realized that I accidentally made a gundam - I think there was a lot of subconscious inspiration from Hydromancer here, especially with those big stompy feet.

Big stompy feet aren't just cool looking, they are science!

Really neat build! I love all the angling going on, gives it a more ready to strike look. The jumpjet array is also pretty nifty.

I second this!

Excellent looking in every way possible, down to the color scheme! That black with tan and dark green accents pops like crazy!

Glad you like it! I've found that adding in a few pieces in other colors can really sell the color scheme -- If the skeleton of the frame was all black and the armor plating was all tan, it would look boring, but adding in some details in colors you wouldn't expect (like the white shoulders on a tan frame) can really add a lot of visual variety. The dark green came into the build when I needed a 1x2. A dark green one was laying around and I rolled with it!

Thanks Hydromancer! A big part of the angling just comes from the waist. I've been getting crazy mileage out of that padlock and 45 degree Travis waist.
