That's a very good winter scene and there's more in the MOC that you notice on the first look. I don't agree with Dave completely. A mech doesn't have to look humanoid, but at least it should be symmetrical.
Mr. Plastic, This was an excellent idea and presentation. I had a hard time understanding the mecha. It was a little unconventional, and in the end I think the unrecognizability of it hurt you. Mecha are usually humanoid for a good reason: a connection to the viewer. Thank you for sharing your take on the categories. ~Dave
Your total score for Round one was 31. Unfortunately, that doesn't give you enough points to move on. BUT, you do qualify for the MIT competition. To compete there, follow this link: http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/18342 and good luck!
The machine is nice, but I think it's really the landscaping that makes this stand out. You did a really wonderful job creating the snow, the fence and the tree both look great, and the skeleton is a nice finishing touch. All in all, great work, I wish you good luck with the judges!
