The Minister of Glorious Prevailance and his aide meet with our Chief Military Engineer on the old mined-out asteroid we'll have to use for orbital operations.
CME: ...So we'll remove some of those thrusters to make room for chaff pods and a railgun. It won't maneuver as well as it did -
MoGP: - as a utility tug -
CME: - right, as a utility tug, but it'll be armed -
MoGP: Three of them?
CME: And two more in salvage, plus a heavier mining tug we're working to adapt. How, um, how soon is the operation? It's not, y'know, soon, is it?
Aide: Well, they seem fairly glorious -

I like those an awful lot. Especially the feet, and the very cool use of Battle Droid arms. I needs me more of those.
I'm also finding that I'm growing very fond of that dark bluish gray. They didn't have that colour when I was a lad...
If anybody's interested in these puppies gamewise, here's one enlabeled:
I figure the space attachment is a big gyroscope. Blow it up and the pilot has to self-correct his yaw pitch and roll all the time, by eye, using foot pedals. He's got no time leftover for rolling a white die.
im not so fond of these chuckers.
if people can be scale-fully lego-ified, can they fight?
if you take a 1x1 cylinder as the legs, a 1x1 with a stud on the side and a stud port on the other as the body, and a 1x1 round piece as the head, couldnt you put, like a pneumatic T in the stud on the side, or at least a black 1x2 flat to signify a weapon?
that'd be cool, to have marines running alongside mechas into the battlefield, or maybe tankx?
