Vanguard is, to take a page from the Piraka book, 100% leader, 0% creature. A robotic warrior created by a resistance faction, Vanguard is designed and programmed to lead its fellow soldiers into battle, mowing down anyone and anything in its way. Vanguard--armed with a protosteel war-axe and a visual-guided energy cannon; capable of lifting the weight of an entire herd of Kikanalo; and fully sentient, self-aware, and loyal to its team--is truly a force to be reckoned with.

 

I hope you all enjoy this build as much as i enjoyed building it. Feedback is welcome!

A lot of people go for laser vision, but I see that you've gone with the more refined gatling-gun vision. A very nice move there.
 
You've managed to keep things armored and relatively self-consistent save for the Inika chest armor on the legs. It's not easy to use on legs head-on unless your MOC is significantly bigger.
 
(One thing non-MOC-wise that I would suggest is to reduce the file size of your images. Sacrificing image size for a better file size is something you should definitely do here so people can more easily see your work.)

Yeah, the Inika armor is weird. And it's not just the shape--the plastic used in that piece just sort of sticks out against the shiny CCBS-era pieces.
 I don't really know how to fix it. :/

 

My MOC posting system is to get the images from camera to Brickshelf as fast as possible, and that leaves little room for adjustment, which obviously means I'm left with huge images. I guess next time I'll just have to get off my behind and do it. I think part of it is that I'm a compressophobe, but the size itself is something I think I can deal with. Thanks for the feedback! ^_^

Wow. This is huge. It looks to me like Keetongu became a war machine and got a new paint job, which I really like. He's a strong behemoth, and he lets the world know it.

 

While his body is flawlessly made, I feel his weapon is just... too much. The shaft is super thick, and it honestly dwarfs Vanguard. It might be an appropriate staff for Akuhtan, the winner of BTGFM, not him. Downsize it a bit.
