    FREAKING SWEET!!! That looks so awesome! Great job. :thumb 

    The only thing that bugs me about it is the head. Megs' face seems a little too small.

    Well, going by the design comparison, that seems to be the face scale the original comic designer was going for. This scratch-build nails the original design perfectly! (within the constraints of the physical world :)  )

    I realized that, but it still looks odd. Looking at the comparison, it looks like the custom's chest is broader than the drawing, but that could just be my eyes (I'm not a good judge of size/distance) since the drawing is from a human's perspective.

    I also just noticed that the cannon barrel telescopes like the note on the drawing says. That's cool.

    This is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the most stunning custom I've seen so far, TFmaster. I am really amazed by the level of original work that went into this.

    You're a genius in ply styrene. Really, that is exceptional work. Do you do this kind of thing for a living?
