Here is my first mech. I decided to take apart 2 8080 sets( just the transformer) and used most of its pieces for this. I ended up throwing some extra pieces in since there wasn't enough to make it with just those 2 sets. This is my first try making mech that actually didn't fail and could move. My biggest inspiration for wanting to make mechs was back when I was younger watching Mobile Suit Gundam. This mech is fully poseable, can hold stuff in its right hand, has a detaching machine gun that connects to his back and wrist, opening hatch, and can actually fire its top 2 rockets. Yes I did use some of the techniques the set came with and the rest if all custom. You can fit 1 pilot in it and can hold 2 weapons on each side of the driver's hatch. The shield is connect to his arms so it doesn't get knocked off. I don't really have much else to say but enjoy my first mech and if you have any tips, please do tell.
