I was feeling a bit nostalgic(If 2006 is nostalgic 0.o)  yesterday and decided to throw together a little Exo Force MOC. The first EF set I ever recieved was in fact Stealth Hunter, so I decided to re-innovate that.

Please note I have some Bricklink Shopping to do quite soon. There's a few spots on here which have some preliminary parts on. The yellow portions on the feet, random trans colored tiles, a lot of color layering on the back, and the lower arms will be completely redone to look more solidified.
 
Obviously the entire build is different from the Stealth Hunter we received 7 (!) years ago;

One thing that always bothered me about the original Stealth Hunter was the "wings" They really are more of extra fins to help move in the air, not really a proper method of flight. So On the back of the Mk II I have some (designs to change) rocket boosters to assist in flight. I have also made the iconic shoulder wings on the stealth hunter into a sort of transforming shape. I always thought it would be cool if they were constantly changing while it was flying to increase or decrease speeds
 
The final configuration creates a sort of pod shape, meant to be the result when the Stealth Hunter is at max speed;
 
 
Weapons are going to be scraped pretty quick, really need to rethink those
 
Being that it is still in the works, comments are appreciated. A couple points I know people will mention;
Too much gray (Need BL Orders)
Blue pins on forearms are distracting(Have white versions that I'll place in soon)
Random bits of color (Need to get those parts in the proper colors)
 
And I'll do some restructuring and some more work all around, but so far I'm happy with how it is turning out.
 
 
 
And for the more observant of you, you may notice the torso in the pic with Hikaru standing on the ground in front of it looks almost like a small ship; Something that will become more prominent in the Mk III.
 
I really did like Exo Force, shame it came to such a quick end.

I love this! The Stealth Hunter was my favorite mech from Exo-Force. The bulky factor that you worked in is great, and the assault rifle looks amazing. And frankly,  like the yellow bits, they look cool IMO, but I honestly think it needs more blue...

Not bad. First attempt to revamp the Stealth Hunter, as far as I remember.

I do agree with Chris that it needs an accent color, though I wouldn't be opposed to something other than the blue that came with the original set...

Thanks guys,

 

For incorporating color I do agree, I'm not sure what color I'll do just yet, but it'll be incorporated as an outline color, for example the slopes around the canopy and the exposed studs would get covered in a color of some sort to outline that section. would most likely run the line down his legs and possibly do one of his arms with a stripe (I'm a sucker for asymmetry) 

 

Once I start shopping around on bricklink I'll get some ideas of where I want to go here

Personally I like white and red, but, I feel like that matches Ha-Ya-To more than Hikaru and eventually I'll want that scheme for the Gate Defender MKII

Yeah, although red would look cool, it wouldn't fit with the Stealth Hunter. Maybe light blue?
