A Year and a Half Old at this point, but still standing strong on my Display shelf!
This all started out with Heavy Arms back new the beginning of 2010 with Heavyarms and it just kinda spiralled from there. They are based on this build by TKH, but I decided that in particular the legs needed to be longer and have more bulk to really match up with the After Colony designs.
Each Gundam has a unique design and special features as seen from the Anime;
On the Bleak Battlefields of the future war is carried out by Proxy Armies, robotic tanks and mechs march to war by the thousands under the networked control of bloodthirsty Commander AIs.
The Tyrant is the most ruthless Commander AI yet seen on the Proxy Battlefields. Unlike other Commander AIs the Tyrant Leaves it bases to entire platoons of Forgers to seek out glory on the frontlines. The Tyrant is well suited for it as well, it's Right Arm mounts a seemingly underwhelming Mass Driver yet it is connected Directly to the Tyrant's Reactor allowing for a much higher rate of fire compared to what would be expected. It's simply but efficient ammunition is easily manufactured by a dedicated NanoForge unit and is Forged on demand, allowing it's magazine space to be kept for a selection of specialty ammunition types.
Even the Tyrant's Primary NanoForge mounted on it's left arm can be used for destruction as it's been specifically calibrated to make periodical use of what is described as a "Corrosive Nanite" attack, cause units to seemingly crumble into fist sized chunks of scrap metal. These nanites are unstable and short ranged and ineffective against the Regenerative Armor of other Commander AIs.
Even in death the Tyrant seem dead set on causing maximum destruction is a special overload circuit and breaching mechanism built into it's reactor.
This was so cool to see at my College! Zoids! Not just any old Zoids but the white Bootleg Zoids from I think either the 90's, 80's or when Zoids came to the states. These are also rare I believe, I thought I wasn't going to able to see these things but here they were in the Technology wing with the Robotics! This is a Bootleg Shield Liger.

I originally got this model over two years ago while I was on a supply run for Gundammarkers. Despite my intentions of building it then, I ended up shelving it shortly after I started to fill in its panel lines and paint the hands.
A part of me is glad I waited because I've made some serious improvements on my construction style and tool usage.
With rainy weather blocking me from cutting hay all of August, I finally had the time to sit down and put this together in a MARATHON BUILD. There is a lot more to this kit than you can see in this photo, but the work I did includes adding extra red paint to the exposed armor sections on the shoulder, ankle, and thighs as well as painting the pilot figure of Lowe.
The dry transfer decal on the left shoulder, I am most proud of because that is two overlapping decals to make the signature Junk Guild "PROPERTY OF LOWE!" look.
This is one of the best Master Grades I have ever built. and one of my all time favorite Gundam designs.
Gundam is property of Bandai. Construction by ME!!!!!
