Well, you've really hit the mark with this one. So many of those designs from the doldrums of FASA were downright "meh"... I just could not see how they were supposed to fit together, never mind even move!
The highlight colour on the forearm cannons of this Mech pull your eyes in towards the middle... and I love the way the machine's braced on the slope of the ridge. So many pictures of BattleMechs have them standing on flat, even ground.
