As much as I hate
to say this (and as two-faced as this sounds); that's too
much like the original suit and
still reads visually as a god-damned Robo-repaint of some other franchise's robot suit.
It smacks of design by committee in the real world
, rather than a setting that hyper-emphasizes the characteristics of said world for narrative
effect, which is what people mean when they point out that the original films robots were lampooning 80s aesthetics.
If they had gone for a true adaptation of 1980's product design, ED-209 would look like this
. Both are clearly children of 1980s industrial design, and both embody the same insane over-qualification for their intended tasks (the Abrams admittedly does so in hindsight, but who really needs tanks when you have nuclear weapons, though that's another barrel drum of fish entirely,) yet only one of those visually communicates
that fact without requiring the viewer to know the operational or technical details of said design.
Take a wild guess.
