Also I have seen people in here mentioning that it does not look like an Anime mech, and it can not turn it's head like a gundum.... This is Battletech, not Gundum Wing. It is not supposed to look like an Anime mech, because it is not one.

This one kinda reminded me of a Clint more. The AC 10 looks more Clint-ish as well as the armor. The original Centurion really emphasized angular armor. Also have to agree that the Centurion needs a neck.

Sorta like the redesign of the musclecars:
A good artist can redesign the mustang and not loose it's soul.
A bad artist comes up with the new Dodge Charger.
I woudn't of called it a Centurion if I didn't see the title.
And yes, I work in the industry.

I always hated all 'robots' except 'Mechs because 'Mechs aren't 'robots' they are battle armor for a MechWarrior, just like armor for Knights in Middle Ages.
I don't like your artworks.

lol don't you see devs are clearly making design for casual wide audience, for everyone, changing old school mech warrior designs to some visual images all people know 'robots' for. First they do that to make more money instead of pleasing real MechWarrior BattleTech fans and then they gonna switch orientation to consoles and release console port for pc after pc helped them to rebirth MechWarrior.
P.S. Of course I know that you never call 'Mech a robot (it's a different things) but all these newfags that they bring in will be doing it. think about it.

i doubt that a "majority agrees" with you. to compare the new designs with the look of gundam is not ok! if there are anime-influences (beside the fact, that the unseen mech-designs are 1 to 1 copys of anime-mechs), then this is not a bad thing. i realy dont like gundam but the mechadesigns for example of "front mission" or the anime-influenced designs of "heavy gear" are imho one of the best outhere in the moment. in the wide spectrum of anime or manga is a long tradition in creating mecha-designs.
i prefer the utilitarian and "realistic" military look of mechas. if it becomes too organic and candy-pop-like, like gundam, this is not my cup of tea .
my point is, if the new designs of the mechs in mwo, like the centution, wouldnt be influenced of the contemporary sci-fi look of cool, and deadly warmachines, you must do a kind of 80s retro. But when you want to do so, would it make any sense to work on a new mechwarrior-game in the year 2012?

I hope it will never come this far.
As I said: "It is okay to not like things..."

Justin Xiang added a bigger AC to Yen Low Wang, as well as claws on the left arm. He would have removed the LRM rack as well which would have changed the overall shape of the torso.
In all there would be all kinds of variations of a particular Mech and I like this redesign, even if it does have some illogical things, it looks cool and that is good enough for me.

art, etc over to the west, part of that core is heads that can turn
just can't do that with the new design paradigm :/

It's not that people like the original TRO more than the redesign, is that the redesign is too far off the original design.
I can't believe you read everything and you still didn't get it.
EDIT: First warning. Next warning is temp ban.
EDIT: You might want to check your eyes modman, I didn't post the picture I mentioned.
