The model looks great! But I think it needs to be more consistent to the actual object.
The texture an lighting seem to change, so that the robot is a lot brighter and shinier than the navigator.

I think the modelling/shading are great, but you could bump up the animation - make it more swingy and weighty (read: more anticipation, follow through)

Thanks for the comments :D

Messor: I did make the robot/phone in the second shot brighter in post, though I didn't think it would be that noticable.

Glacierise: Yup, the animation could use some improvements. The main problem is that I spent so much time rigging it for transformation, it became kinda difficult for animation. Well, we learn from our mistakes, no? :banghead:

Keep'em coming :)
