I was asked by my colleague who was part of a Sucker Punch group to build this bunny faced mecha. Frankly when I already saw the design and watched the movie, It didn't appeal to me at first. Not to mention I was really stumped how to even start it. Over time though I got the motivation to build it from just remembering Sucker Punch's ending credits and the catchy "Love is the Drug" song, as well as remembering the incredible progress of the group's costumes. All in all, I felt my colleague's Sucker Punch group would look more bad-ass with a Bunny Mecha. After building it, I'd say it's now a favorite character of mine. I got the idea of how to wear the costume from the old 80's cartoon "The Centurions." Visibility was limited to the small opening in front of the cockpit so I depended on "voice commands" from my pilot Amber. Overall, I liked how the thing turned out, despite taking almost a week of cramming. I still plan to repaint it so I'd say it's not yet a 100%. As for the thing's name, I don't know what is official. I just saw a phone game was made based on the movie called Mech Gunner so I thought it would make sense to call it that. However, it's more popularly known as the Bunny Mech so I'll stick to that.
