Hey, its easy to go looking for reference but what I find appealing and what all you beautiful people find appealing might not match up. It's important that my designs reach for a broader sense of appeal. That's where you friendly folk can help. I'll start this thread really open ended. I'll refine this a bit more later. As we gather gems together.

 

I'm looking for images and ideally videos of bipedal robots designed to save the world with the amazing agility and speed they have been designed with. Or parts and pieces mechanical or natural that are clearly designed for advanced ability to run, jump, and dive. I'm gathering movement as well, so videos of "perfect speed" of any kind. Thanks for your help!

 

Pat Benatar style! Hit me with your best shot(s).

 

Fire away.

Hmm, speed.  Most mechas and transformers aren't skinny enough to look really fast; they either have giant shoulders or they are overall blocky and barrel-chested.  Modern robots seem like they would be more flexible, like the real robots of fish and snakes we have currently that move by undulating.  Transformers Animated is my favorite robot art style (over several mecha anime series, from Evangelion to Gundam).  Though something like Grimmjow's cat-like release form in Bleach might make an even better robot design than the TFA ones.
