The Assault Mech Model 41, was designed to attack heavily fortified encampments. The Highlander is appropriately coated in armor, adding a dense plate on top of the frame, ensuring the vital components and pilot are well protected from bombardment.
I like the way that legs go from 2 wide to 1 wide at the bottom and then you have those big, splayed toes. The angle of the 1x1 cockpit glass is cool to. BTW, do the guys standing on the right ever get to go home for a rest from posing in the photos? :)
