Nice alien feel to this one, would make for a good Ijad base.

Neat and nicely identifiable systems here!

Glad to see these on the hangar, they're one of my personal favorite of your designs :)
The head shape is just so iconic, and the proportions look great. Love the pose and colors on this one especially

Okay. I don't see it but if that's what speaks to you.

That's been one of my goals lately.

Really happy with how these guys came out. The size of the faceplate relative to the rest of the body gives them kind of a chibi vibe.


And a breakdown:

I considered skipping this part, since most of the build is pretty straightforward, but I figured the pelvis construction might confuse a few people, so here we are.

The pose on that green one is killer.
Really loving this frame as most of my parts are mixel/nexo sourced.

HOLY HUTCH YES!
I want one! Dang Mark, those turned out great, very nice work! I love the way you even adapted details like the two staggered "toes" on the feet. These are just overall incredible and I bet Mantis is proud to have inspired them!

Thanks. I thought the use of cutout slopes as toes on Mantisking's original frame was a neat idea--though it doesn't fit with the rest of my building style, I wanted to keep the spirit of the idea.

Always interesting seeing someone else's take on my work. The ball joint for the neck adds more mobility but sacrifices the frankenstinian neck bolts of the original. Maybe if the Triple Tooth Plates ever get made in Light or Dark Bley I'll add them to the torso to greeble it up a bit.
