Mantis DS-3 Mech
Using the general idea (and lots of pieces) from Exo-force, I created a mech. It's my second one, so try to keep the criticism down, please.
About this creation

The feet and legs. The black 2x6 piece was once bare, and I didn't know if three orange studs on each fixed that. Any thoughts?

Here's what inspired me to make the MOC.

I don't know if I invented the technique, but two Bionicle saws on a jackhammer will make both spin if you spin one. If I did in fact create this technique, just use it. No credit needed, because I'm tired of people claiming techniques. By the way, I claim the idea of putting bricks together. Please give credit.

The other weapon/arm.

Fourth Wall Commentary: I had more pics, but they turned out blurry.

Oy! The brick idea is mine! Anyways, a very nice start, but there's some things to work on. The color is very nice, but it's the armor that gives me trouble. It's best if the armor isn't coordinated with the legs and arms. Otherwise it looks skimpy. Just a few things to work on, otherwise looks great!

Nevermind, I guess some guy named Ole Kirk Christainsen came up with it before me. Oh well.

Oh, okay. You mind giving me a link so I can credit you? I'd also like to see how you used it.

Your mech has potential but I believe what is missing the most is the body. You basically have a decent start for the arms and legs but if you think about it where is the engine, gyroscope for balance, computer controls, etc. go in this design. To be honest, the Exo-Force sets aren't the best example of mechs. Try taking a look at some of the builders for ideas to add to your designs. Just be sure to give them credit if you use something. People around here really like that sort of thing and it shows you respect your fellow builders. Your current does have other thing going for it right now. By being so light, the joints don't need to be reinforced with extra struts which is a common problem as more and more pieces get added to a design.

Not bad Clay, but I can help you out. There needs to be more armour, it looks too sparse.Alos, try to make the lega s big shorter, because the look almost way to long. Good job, and good luck.Cheers!~Swift
