Warpath Gundam by LordObliviontheGreat Warpath Gundam by LordObliviontheGreat
For the BBC #68 contest, "Get in the Robot". The theme was to build a humanoid mech. So I decided to make a Gundam (like the many others out there). I based some of this from Turn A Gundam, but otherwise it's mostly aesthetically and proportionally based on various Gundams.

I tried to give it a samurai-esque feel, with the crest, shoulder armor (and the flower, for shintoism), and the skirt to some extent.

Other than that, I did what I could to maintain the Gundam aesthetic and design, with the longer legs, boxier torso, and I even gave it 5 fingers! The shoulder armor and skirt do not restrict articulation, the skirt is connected via balljoints, and the shoulder armor is able to swivel up and down (while the tiles can also go up and down) due to a system of pins and stuff. I wanted to keep it as real to Gundams as I can. The ankle armor does restrict it a bit, but it is necessary in order to support the mass of the MOC.
