Any ideas on what this thing's name is?

Hopefully the owner of this won't mind, I took a screen grab from a youtube vid. I've never seen this thing before but I'm dying to know what it is. My guess is it's either a custom jobby job or....it's not a Gundam.... I really don't know but I sure would like to!
Anyone care to take a guess?

Thanks in advance folks!

Seems the base model is from the "dust" range, an alternate 1946 history.

Appreciate it's a limited shot,however, it does seem 'tricked up' with extra firepower, more mobile arms.......

While impressive, it seems to me it is a little over armed for the role (personal opinion)

An anti mount on top of front line fighting gear, while sporting a long gun (presumably for sniping)

Kind of like mounting an artillery piece to the back end of a main battle tank, then wleding a radar directed anti-air cannon fixture to the top of the turret.......bit of overkill....

however, this is Sci-fi, so who am I to judge!


Hope this helps, I am just guessing, and am just as mystified as you!

Cheers

Hmm...not familiar with the dust range. Is it Gundam? or maybe Ma.K ?

Here is a bit more on the Dust universe....

think MaK, but with a 1950's tech base, rather then WW2 figures driving year 300 technology.....

Which still doesn't answer your original question; What is this?

That actually is a Gundam. It's the Ground Tieren from Gundam OO. It's got a ton of mods, but the base is the Tieren.



Look here

The legs, waste, arms and shoulder armor match. I can't really see the rest in that pic.

Thanks for the link Jamie, I have to say that the Dust stuff is pretty awesome looking. A bit pricey(the resin stuff) but really cool.

Jason, I would have to say you are correct. I can see the leg "shield" as well as the basic shoulder thingies in the screen grab.
Looks like I might have to get one now..... darn my silly brain for talking me into it

Thanks guys,

Clint

The 1/100 scale Tieren is pretty cool. It's kind of big and bulky, like a walking tank. Which is basically what it is in the anime.
