wow you must have done some research on this. i can see how the multiple join would provide maximum voltage and how the long tail would be used for balance. i like. i like a lot.

I would expect him to have bigger nostrils, for shifting the that volume of air needed to run at high speeds? Also, the back foot looks strange? its like he is standing with his toes bent under?

Just observations. You work is awesome. Thanks for sharing.

Who am I to utter a single thought about your fantastic work? But still I cannot keep shut :)
From an engineering perspective I think this fellow would benefit from having those chest claws working upwards instead of downwards. In that way they can cooperate with the head and jaws like a giant grip on whatever unfortunate being within reach.
I realise that my suggestion implies more than a little redesign but it would be interesting to see what it would look like.

Cheers!  /Thomas

I'd love to see this thing in 3D fully animated. It looks. . . well to be perfectly honest absolutely terrifying.

This strikes me in a similar way to Clover. I don't mean they resemble each other, I mean this feels like something that can actually exist. Something that I could meet in person (though I really really wouldn't want to).

Incredible job! Its amazing.
