When I first saw pics that the Samurai Mech was going to be a set. I wanted it so much. Once I got it. It took a few bricklink orders but I was able to revamp it to be more show accurate. Also being a fan of Nya I got both the Samurai X spinner and the Nya spinner.

 

There are a lot of pics below so here is the gallery when its public. In the gallery is an Lxf file for the mech and card stand built in Ldd if you wish to build this yourself. (In the model there are parts that aren't attached since they won't attach in Ldd. But they will attach in real life. The bottom of the sword also won't attach in Ldd but will attach in real life. Also I've built the thumb differently since recently I've figured out how to build a realistic thumb for the mech in real life.)

So here are some pics of my Nya minifigs (All of them wear the ring from the lord of the rings sets. It represents the bracelet Nya had in the show)

Samurai X front (I used the head from Spyclops since it best matched the goggles Samurai X had in the show)

Samurai X back (I used a star wars jetpack for her jetpack. I had to cut the top part off for it to fit)

Wish they made a dark Nya minifig. Then I would have all her variations

 

This is my Custom Samurai X Spinner. (Nya's normal spinner included)

Now with all of that out of the way. I can show you my Revamp of the Samurai Mech Set

These are the changes I made

 

1. Removal of the tan bricks, Trans red bricks blue bricks and most of the light grey bricks

2. Putting a cannon on both sides and making both hands clawed

3. Making the front be able to flip down like it does in the show

4. Replacing the Small jetpack with a more accurately sized one

5. Improving the sword and making the blade gunmetal.

6. Modifying the arms and legs so they have more articulation

 

With that here are pics

I'm looking for an Inkay or Malamar with its event move Happy Hour. Pm if you have one I can borrow to breed and pass the move down so I can have an Inkay with the move for myself.

Incredible revamp. I love the jetpack, the increased articulation in the arms and legs, the claws, the flip-open front... all of your changes, really. The removal of the extraneous brick colors isn't something I'd consider necessary (they never seemed all that obtrusive to me) but it doesn't harm the model in the long run, at least not as far as I'm concerned.

I love this. I especially liked your utilization of the LotR ring as her bracelet, and your version of her with goggles. (They didn't seem "goofy" to me at all, either).
