^Right. I'm going back through Synthesis now trying to grab details.

Spider-like, with a haphazard framework built from recycled parts. Head that can rotate, multiple eye lenses. Antennae I believe? And multicolored lights set inside a frame that's the size of a cargo drum, and "as much art as technology" in its design.
Remember that White-Blue has multiple "outfits" throughout the story, though!
The 'multicolored lights set inside a frame that's the size of a cargo drum' is just his core intelligence module. The first spider-body is built around that from recycled starship parts (but with a 'patchwork' rather than 'scrapyard' kind of look, I felt) and the second spider-body ("My droneframe has been upgraded") is a lot more smooth, kinda iMac styling.

I imagined White-Blue - in fact, all of the Sentries - in a very anime mecha style, drawing influence from my favourite artists like Masamune Shirow, Kenichi Sonoda and Shoji Kawamori...

Would you wanna do a sketch? I think you're the only one qualified to get it right.
I can't draw, that's why I write...

I pictured him as looking like a Monitor from the Halo games: http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Monitor
He has legs, though - I describe him in Synthesis as being "spider-like"...
Ok, I don't remember how I pictured him in Synthesis, so by the time I read Seize the Fire (where I pictured him as a Monitor) I must have forgotten the description from Synthesis. I'm pretty sure I remember Seize the Fire describing him as floating around, using anti-grav technology, at some point, but I could be wrong. If I remember that correctly, maybe that was just one of his "outfits".

He can float around too, if he needs to. He'd have anti-gravs for moving around in microgravity environments, but its not his usual mode of locomotion...

Wow. Those all work really well for me. I particularly like the guy you have down for Akaar.
