awesome review!
Now all you need is a Sigourney Weaver custom clicky....I see a custom powder loader exo-suit from "Alien" in the near future!  will you be making one perhaps?

Probably not, but who knows. Actually, I like the robowalker in its pristine state. 0)

I wonder if the belt to helmet line is an optical cable for an HUD? This set is sure to be a big seller in multiples, I hope they recognise that and produce extra.

Thanks for the review, Conniefrere - you beat me to it. I bought it today and it has only just been assembled. And it is indeed awesome.
Allthough I was struck by the amount of force some parts needed to get them assembled.
What I really find a pity is that the number "2" is fixed. It would be nicer if it was possible to have multiple sets with all their own number.

...I see a custom powder loader exo-suit from "Alien" in the near future!  ...

That´s funny - it made me think of the Sentinel from Warhammer 40.000:



I really want to buy another one and convert it into a sentinel like vehicle ...
couple of missile-launcher or a twin-Heavy Bolter ... mmm ...

Perhaps next month ...

PS ... come to think of it, there was also something like this in the Matrix:

It reminded me to the matrix at once.
Concerning the assembly, sometimes you did have to se some force. The end result is it works perfectly! 8-)

hmmm, exosuits are pretty common in all sci-fi genre now, but it still reminds me most of the powder loader from Alien since it has a roll cage harness, and the arms of the clicky actually move with the arms of the suit, and the hands look just like the pincer forklift grips in the movie (plus the one from Alien is probably the earliest appearence of an exosuit in non-japanese sci-fi lore.)

but pretty much, yeah, the ones in Matrix and Avatar are quite similar as well. :)

also the mechs in EXOSQUAD, look very similar.  Exosquad was a line of toys that also included some BATTLETECH designs (RPG) stolen from Japanese mecha designs.
