I think this the first Slizer revamp ever. And it's certainly a good one.

A return of Throwbots.
A return of Frogspace.
Even if this wasn't awesome, smooth, and nearly flawless, this would be commendable.
I really appreciate the ratio of old pieces to new. That's a balance that I've found difficult to strike.

Pretty cool moc. I like Jet, kind of looks like a similar setup to what millenia had. I believe that is his name. Wish I had all my slizers fully built still. Many pieces went to other mocs

Those parts work fantastically. They all keep the Throwbots aesthetic, but make it better. The legs are particularly brilliant. Well done.

Great job! This is one of the best MOCs I've seen so far. I really like the construction of the torso and legs. The launcher arm is also nice, I like the way you smoothly integrated the launcher. The frog is a nice touch, too. Keep up the good work!

This is awesome! First: Throwbot. Second: That arm!
Also the colors work well. And the armoring (especially the chest).
I'm overly impressed.

Hehheh. Wow, this is awesome =D
One question though, since the head rotates around to reveal Mr. Frogger, how is the head-articulation? In order to reveal His Frogginess, the center of rotation seems to be very much near the 'back' of the top (when looking at it from the front), and from experience I know that isn't a very good point to be rotating the head around - it just makes it look kinda...... weird, I guess.

While not the first Slizer revamp I've seen, I'm still very glad they're getting some attention. I've really been nostalgic for those older Technic sets lately, and have considered doing a revamp myself.So, onto the MOC. The biggest thing that sticks out to me with this guy is his bulkyness. He's just a huge tank of a Throwbot, utilizing a lot of parts well (I really like that chest armoring, I'll need to use those pieces more often), but this is both good and bad. The Judge I remember was fairly thin and agile looking, and I think this look would look better with Torch. It just seems really off to me.Now, as a frog mech (hilarious by the way), it looks awesome. The armoring is very consistent and smooth throughout, and a lot of pieces were used in great ways (like those arm thrusters) to make it look cohesive. The arm disk launcher would probably be my favorite part. The thrusters were well spaced throughout, and the usage of the original Throwbot bodies was a great idea (although Judge used the other body type, but this still looks cool).So, awesome MOC, just doesn't look much like Judge to me.[color=#cc6600;]I always fancied Jet as the leader of the original eight Throwbots, so I wanted him to look like a bulky boss sort of guy who can actually throw his weight around up there at the top of the Throwbot world as opposed to a gawky twig.[/color]

It can swing back and forth a little bit (about the same range as a minifig head with long hair restraining it), but it's not especially meant to go up like it does to reveal the frog.[/color]

Looks fantastic, I love Throwbots' designs and this one looks so streamlined and gorgeous. Great colour scheme. Really nice, I love it.
