Non-japanese mecha thread.
RUR, the thing that's credited with the term "robot" mentions some large ones in passing, but they're more man-made men than clinking clanking buckets of bolts
Funny that on how much advanced Sentinels are, Tony Stark made the Sentinel Mark VIII into a full blown mecha that needs a human pilot. Here's one battling the forces of hell.
Always loved this comic. the artwork was really neat. not /m/ related but the Manhattan Projects comic has a similar artstyle.
I was just delighted when the expansion made these fuckers even tougher.
On the upside, killing them in melee is satisfying enough to be worth the small damage you'll take.
You know, he's actually got a point. Not that American mecha doesn't belong on here, because it does. But it's interesting to think that mecha is the Japanese making a loanword out of the English word mechanical and now it's come full circle and mecha is a now an English loanword of a Japanese term. Fucking language.
Ok maybe I was being a tad harsh, the mutons are nice. Chryssalids are so fucking stupid. I want my two legged, fuck you in the ass machine back.
Also, have you noticed that Chyrssalids in the battlescape in the original xcom are black, but when you research a Chyrssalid corpse or catch one alive they are whitish silver.?

I assume the Ufopaedia images just had very strong lightning. After all they are made in clinical conditions, lamps everywhere.
Or alternatively, the artist decided the chryssalid looks like shit if drawn pitch black so decided to make it shiny instead.
Never thought about that, even still those must be bright as fuck lights.
Yup, from one of the many amazing mods that you can install with openxcom.
One of the issues of Marvel fact files. You can't buy in the us. Some the issues have been ripped though.
Fun fact : despite being a korean ripoff of Mazinger it was the first mecha show ever to use mocap controls for the robot, two years before Daimos.
Ian Mcques twitter is a gold mine for his drawings which mostly consist of transportation type mech.
Really /m/? I shouldn't be the first one to post an image of it.
Alternate end is the only thing I can think of anymore. On a more related note.. the original toy that came with the VHS tape had a bump on it. Attention to detail was god tier.
His shapes are pretty magical. Some of his drawings remind me of old Nihei art on a much smaller scale.
>I'm not a robot
Don't remind me, Captcha, don't remind me.
I got a few. everything I have posted comes from one overhaul mod. The only thing that is from a different mod is the new firestorm picture.
In this overhaul mod you must research alien weapons first, then research the human equvilent which you can use after manufacturing it.
The two ships in the top left corner are ships from mods. Want me to post links for mods?
Ok give me 10 minutes or so. Here is a new alien which can tank multiple grenades and about fifty plasma shots on rookie before dying. ( I am not noob at the game, initially i just wanted to try out the overall, but instead found myself wanting to playthrough the game.)
>can tank multiple grenades and about fifty plasma shots on rookie before dying
How the fuck do you kill it then?!
Do these guys count?
This is where you want to download most of your mods.
Unofficial openxcom mod website, has a lot less mods than the forums.
>SO MANY NEW UFOS HOLY SHIT
>new alien base type
There is tons of other great mods too, but I don't have the time to list every mod I have. Also, a note of warning, weapon pack mods and some overhaul mods have too many useless weapons. Sure it is fun to try something new for a change, but a good portion of weapon mods suck.
Also, the mod I am using is called Xeno Operations mod. Bretty good except for some shit weapons.
Keep shooting and throwing explosives at it. Also, keep it distracted by a tank. Aliens love to focus on tanks.
There's even a bunch of variations like those different versions of Servo he was brainstorming, and Crow can transform into a high-speed form from that time they chucked him down the umbilicus
Yup it is, ironically nobody has made a mod yet with the dropship from the opening.
Look on the last few pages, robin is the guy making the mods and he is a sexy master of modding.
Every time Tony's suit blew apart in IM3 I thought of Gizmoduck.
Guess what showed up on LoK's latest episode.
It's over 25 stories tall according to Korra.
