Heavy Gear Blitz 2017 Kickstarter Preview: Argos Model

This weeks preview is the Argos model for Peace River, which is their answer to the North's Kodiak and South's King Cobra models. The stock Argos model has a Heavy Rotary Cannon, Medium Artillery Rockets on it's back, and a Medium Vibro Blade (Axe). With this larger model we are trying a new 3 part poseable arm configuration, where the shoulder is hollow with slots for the upper arm to be positioned (angled) wider out and lower arm rotated in towards or away from the body and glued as wanted, checkout the image below with these and other detail improvements and information.
