    After seeing the TFA April fools pic I got thinking about the big guy and thinking about what I'd like to do to his design. I liked the fat look he was given so I ran with it and added a few new things and changed things that I just didn't like, such as his radar ears now their blended into the helmet to give off a Samurai look.

    colours will be up late tonight or tomorrow (edit posted below)

    Part of his carrier deck becomes a GIANT sword. That is impossible to not like.

    I love the giant loin cloth with the hooks hanging from it. It's also nice to see a setting in your picture and the Seekers in it for a sense of scale.

    yeah but the half moon thing is something that dates back to the days of samurai and I don't even think Gurran Lagaan was the first to have it

    Grandus. As a samurai. With a sword. That becomes part of his carrier mode. That. Is. Genius.

    I wanted him to look a bit on the fat side but just drawing a huge gut looked odd and I figured hey why not a huge cannon? personally I kinda dig the silly factor of it all

    Although I'm unsure that was his actual intention, weaponry emanating from the crotch is actually amusingly common in Japanese super robot shows and designs. Just look at the Kiss Players and think to yourself, is Transformers really all that immune?

    As for the design I love the way it manages to look Samurai-ish despite its bulk and mechanical nature. I person would have loved a more traditional style shoulder guards but the Kabuto helmet is fantastic and I can only echo the cool factor of having the Nodachi/Oodachi (hard to tell on a guy so large) being a component of the carrier itself!

    I was thinking of Jeeg's Spin Storm when I said that. Especially Koutetsushin Jeeg. Go Nagai always did love suggestive attacks...Breast Fire, Oppai Missiles... :)
