Huh! I didn't realise it was based on something, I was only familiar with this build from the instructions PDF.

Really like how it looks IRL. For mechs without a movement system I'd swap out the boosters for 1 x 4 slopes.

The bar/hand on the feet are just to hold it up - if I did a hovering version, I'd lose them and replace with another plate w/tooth on the calf.

Oh, that's super cool. White and gold never ever fails to get me! I'm loving how many opportunities all these new small-scale parts have introduced to the MFZ design lexicon over the past few years.

Yeah - I enjoyed putting the Voltron set together, but was more excited about there being gold padlocks now!

I got a lightbox so took a few photos of all the mechs so far.
