Hey man,

It looks nice and detailed, but also stiff. Are the panels meant to be flexible, or solid? There isn't much tolerance for the joints.

Do you plan on cutting things apart when you retopoligize and bring it into Maya?

Hai Thanks

AJ1 Thats the plan. And the panels are solid. While retopolizing I m going to redesign the ab area and also do some rnd at the joint areas to make it more animation friendly. Thanks

It looks quite nice but a lot of the details don't make sense....why are they there, what is there function? All those bolts around the knee for instance or on the butt......

Certainly with a more mechanical design things need to have a function, *especially* if it is military related design.
Also, putting so much weight into the feet and hands will make it unstable and unbalanced when moving. Just think of the weight moving around if you tie a couple of bricks to your hand/feet, it will be exactly the same for this thing.
