When the 4 X-machines combine, they formed a larger mobile humanoid weapon called the XRX which is meant for WMD and taking down larger enemies like warships and large mobile weapons. With 2 fusion reactors from the X-2 and X-3, the XRX is 3 times powerful than the previous SRX and emits more energy output. In addition with better coolants, energy optimizer and refined T-link systems, the XRX is proved to be more efficient and packs with powerful blows.
Normal form: Like the X-1, the XRX can also channels and harness TK energies to her fists and chops to deliver deadly blows to enemies her sizes. With the laser cannons from the X-2, she can mounts barrage of attacks on smaller enemy groups. Finally, with the refined G-sword divider from the X-4's module-the XRX's utlimate close-range weapon which can slice a warship into 2 halfs.
Solid form: After the XRX's TK field and gravity field override, the XRX's armors change into shades of black due to increased electromagnetic field. In the Solid form, the XRX is twice more powerful and twice stronger at endurance but slower than the normal form. There's also a short time limit to maintain in that form as the pilots can only endure the gravity pressures for only 10 minutes.
Well, that's all the X-series combiner units for now and boy, that was fun back then. Hope you enjoy it
The X-4 acts as an middle-close range assault unit and as support for the X-1 by providing cover firings. Attached to an armed module which armed with 2 large beam sabers, machine guns and grenade launchers, she is capable of massacre of a small company of enemies. One important thing is that this unit also serves as an ECM unit to conduct electronic warfare and jamming communications to 'cripple' the enemies in major battles.
Most of the time, the X-4 is paired with the X-1 to penetrate enemies in the front line and due to it's sizes, the X-4 has limited spaces for actions unless she detaches from the module. Nevertheless, she can still uses a variety of hand-wield arsenals to provide fire supports for the X-1.
The second unit which acts as long range artillery support and middle range assault in battles. Being the toughest unit within the X-series, the X-2's mobility is compromised for thicker armor and stronger defense but with 2 humongous arms as hover fusion engines, the X-2's mobility has increased.
Armed with 2 beam cannons and 2 hi-laser cannons, the X-2 packs heavy firepower and capable of performing barrage of attacks from far. Due to heavy weight problems, the X-2 is slower at close melee attacks than other X-series units. Since T-Link system isn't used in the X-2, it has upgrade sensors and tracking systems to acknowledge enemies within range.
Aside from using built-in weapons, the X-2 can also use a variety of arsenals like gatling guns, bazookas, flamethrowers etc. When in desperate situation, it can purges the parts away to a lighter form for better mobility.
Remember my previous spy preview on the XRX series? Well, it's been quite sometime now and I apologize for the long delay. So here's a first unit:
The first core unit for the XRX combinable tactical squadron which performs as a middle-close range assault unit in battles. The X-1 can uses a variety of arsenals and channels her TK (telekinetic) energy to the close-combat weapons for maximum impact and blows. With a refined T-link system, the TK user's powers are amplified to the max. Flight form has been disabled after it was deemed useless in urban combats and less powerful than humanoid form. Despite that, the unit's reaction and speed are increased for better mobility and efficiency.
I know what you're thinking, an upgraded R-1 with no R-wing form. Seriously, the R-wing is less powerful unlike the Valkyries with reaction missiles and it's no different with the Zeta waverider form. My main emphasis is on the combat ability as in humanoid form and its beauty in its movements. Enjoy
The X-3 is meant for long range attacks and bombardments. With a gravity defying fusion engine, she can hovers in mid-air and act as a carrier unit to carry both the X-1 and X-2 to scenes of battles. Due to her sizes upon attached to an armed module unit, her close melee combat skills are greatly compromised and so she isn't so suit for close combats unless detached from the module.
Armed with mega beam cannon for long range, lasers for middle/close range and homing missiles for bombardments, she is capable of mass destruction on enemy territories and bases. For efficiency, the X-3 is normally paired with the X-2 to provide long range supports while the rest moving up to penetrate the enemy lines with the X-3 takes the air while X-2 takes the ground. She can also use variety of hand-wield arsenals.
This is my own set of original units for Banpresto's Super Robot Taisen Alpha-verse and Original Generations. I named them the VidraRaja Equaliser units which is based on buddhist mantras known as the kings of wisdoms. Here is one of them, Yaksa Vidraja who resides on the north. Armed with a double-edged blade, like Darth Maul and a large head behind her back, she is also the commanding unit of the pack.
Unlike the SRX which requires telepaths to use T-links, all VREs are installed with bio-computer OS that have self-learning capabilities and also able to bring out the true potentials of the user to the maximum. By bringing man and machine together, VRE units are formidable fighters in the line of earth's defenses againts Balmarians.
In February I submitted this entry for 's MEGA MAN TRIBUTE book, and it made it in! Now that the book is about to be released, I have permission to post the piece online.
I'm honored to be featured among so many fantastic artists. For my piece, I wanted to focus on a relatively unusual character: Tengu Man. The illustration depicts my own Tengu Man design in his stage from Mega Man 8, accompanied by a Tencrow and a trio of Metall SVs.
Here's how you can get your own copy:

MEGA MAN TRIBUTE SOFTCOVER
-The standard softcover edition is also available for preorder on amazon.com ([link] )
Originally I didn't have a name for the unit type but I feel the name paladin applies nicely to the design. ^_^
color wise I wanted to spice it up a bit by adding a urban camouflage pattern to it's exterior to add a bit more realism and to also try out some new painting techniques.
Nothing much was changed with the armament save for the addition of a back mounted grenade launcher that is more akin to a MK19 grenade launcher in terms of firepower.
Was thinking of adding a type of close range weapon as well but given the overall design it's more suited for long to mid-range combat. Also to increase mobility I redesigned the heels of the feet to support wheel like gliding foils to allow it to move very quickly across the battlefield. (in terms of movement it is akin to a standard knightmare frame from the code geass anime series)
After the destruction of Kashgar Hive, a full plan to clean sweep the remaining hives on earth is initiated. Unknown TSFs sighted in battlefield either affiliated by a country or some of them are mercenaries sporting new tech from companies.
Type-97U Fubuki an upgraded version from Japan, equipped with thruster on legs powerful enough to make critical turns its armaments consist of large caliber automatic rifle with bipod and long barrel(long barrel can be disengage for high rate fire and close range combat), type 65 PB knife, and type-74 PB short blade. Cockpit is improved thanks to the XM3 OS now you can pilot with just pajamas and do a barrel roll as much as you want.
The X-KLV1 Pelleas, a Knightmare Frame using a similar frame to the Constantine Mk. III, but is otherwise a completely different and stand-alone unit. Not part of any particular generation of KMFs, it's referred to as a "Round Generation" as if to denote the fact it's a machine rolled out and intended for the Knights of the Round. The first of around twelve X-KLV units.
Finally finished. Even though this only took a few months to make, the first attempt at this that eventually became the Constantine Mk. III took three years! Damn I'm a lazy bastard. Comments and questions always welcome.
This is a Franken designed by me and thus not an original, from-scratch creation, though it includes some original tweaks and parts in the design. Arts used belong to their original creators and not me.
