yep... and robot or not, as a security guard, you're gonna think twice about letting in the bloke with the fuck off sword...

I like the reveal... but as Maskie said, that only works if other stuff is hidden or also revealed... so human body and weapons in arms kind of thing...

It's normal. Too normal. It is out of place with the complete abnormal that is the robot. Give it some diode markings like the chestplate/groinplate to it fits in with the tech. Right now it looks like someone took a flat piece of metal then gave it an edge and a handle; a wonky cricket bat.

The heads are fine. I like the non-open head.

It reminds me of the Infinity range with the bio-mechanical tendons/muscles. I would prefer it to not be so 'edged' and a bit more organic, rounded in shape. But that's me.

The cape and the sword work together. Without the cape I was thinking "a terminator doesn't need a sword." With the cape I'm thinking "ah, it's space opera, cool, I actually kind of like this!"

The sword does look a tad plain compared to the rest.

Yep, the sword works when he's got a cape, looks bloody great although I'd prefer something more space opera like a rapier. The only trouble is that with the cape you can't see all the :froth:y details on the back!
Without the cape he'd look good nice with a baton type weapon.

Anyway point is he looks great, I'm very jealous!

I like it a lot - from wait up it is phenomenal.
There is something about the size of the calves and feet that makes me like the lower part less - doesn't look that menacing with them.

Take the head and put it on one of the Kiss Kiss Bang Bang agents and you've got a sale.

well you know, design and conceptwise you won't ever hit the nail. Always someone will dislike this or that and I am fine with it as I dislike LOTS of stuff too. Anyway, thanks for the comments !
