I like the alternate legs. But style is important, and I guess I can see a sniper being kinda tall and skinny. I got a kick out of that abomination mode, too. If I ever finish my transformer, I will have to post an additional joke-mode :P Did you engineer the transformation? Cause splitting the whole front like that is pretty ingenious. Oh and thanks for posting the mid-transformation pics, so many people don't do that, when in my opinion those are the best pics.
Very well done. The transformation looks simple enough to do easily, but complex enough to still look cool. It looks great in both modes and has very good articualtion. Well done. Oh, and I think I like the alternate leg mode better :P
