I love this design. Weapons are enough and not just stack and stack of weapons just because the there's empty hardpoints. The fully enclosed will protect the pilot better. Also what the manipulator arms used for?

This is a really cool mech. It feels like something that could exist 20 to 30 years from now.

Also, I have a favor to ask. I'm writing a fanfiction and I need a land combat drone. May I have your permission to use a smaller, 2.2 meter tall version of the Fiddler as my drone?

The design, overall, is beautiful. The manipulator arms are a nicely creepy touch.

This thing is damn cool.
I'm really into the manipulator arms--too many mechs armaments but no way to grab/move/interact with anything else. This way, if some lifting was necessary, this baddie could assist in that.
Nice.

Alex, I love your decision to give the mechs arms for grabbing and handling objects. It's a unique idea and really brings something new to Mecha design that I can see actually being implemented should such a machine exist in this capacity.

Is this what inspired the 3d Fiddler pic that I saw, or an offspring of that?
I had that badboy on my desktop for a couple months... the design is just beautiful.
