As is the case with many of my mech builds, this one was inspired by the color palette. I had been setting aside the dark red pieces (officially, "Dark Red" in the LEGO color naming scheme) for some time. I like the combination of that color with LEGO's vibrant deep yellow color (officially, "Flame Yellowish Orange" in the LEGO color naming scheme). And I also wanted to do a mech in the sort of mech warrior style with the minifig cab over walker legs. This is the result.
