And if you look at it from the perspective of an average FSS fan who will look at kits and admire but not really buy or build, it's fair enough to admire the effort and focus on what's good.
But I, and some other perhaps, look at it from the perspective of perhaps wanting to shop for and build some of these kits... so we need to be critical.
It's true that there's no official art of the lower legs, so we don't really know what they SHOULD look like. I just feel like the sculptor may have taken too much liberty and gone off in a direction I don't like with the lower legs. They seem far too different from the Green Left legs... the feet are really big and the legs jut out at an odd angle. And the legs just seem short in general... As a result, I'm just not all that keen on it, and I doubt I would want to buy a copy if it was available...
Thanks for turning me on to a new website! Also, thanks for pointing out a shot of the Orange Right I've never seen before. I now will clarify my point:
Considering there are no full-body pictures of the Orange Right, how can one say what is and is not out of proportion with the model presented in the photograph? It looks to me like the artist did a phenomenal job of extrapolation based on the relatively small and definitely obscure shots of the mech we've seen so far.
You're obviously right in the multiple appearances of the Orange Right. However, all the appearances are partial views. We didn't really know what the Green Left looked like until Twin Tower. We still don't know what the Orange Right fully looks like. I think the artist who worked his butt off on the Orange Right model deserves a medal for modeling a mech of which we have only seen maybe one-third at best.
