Hur hur. This one might be too large to display effectively.
I still remember creating a whole lineup of original (they weren't ORIGINAL at all back then, trust me) mecha back when I thought the Gundam SEED series were the best thing since the invention of the wheel (and when I had just learned about the original Gundam). It isn't, of course, but it was by no means the worst. It could have been better, but that's another story.
Anyways, after a whooping seven years of concepting, I finally started on this piece almost a year ago, and then threw in the weapons (they're scaled 1:1 to the Stormtrooper). Everthing DID turn out the way I wanted after a few tweaks for personal flavour, so here it goes. The data I put here for fun is subject to change, though the Stormtrooper as an antagonist redshirt is more or less done. Take a guess; which unit from the Gundam series did you think had the largest part to play in inspiring this design?
Also, say hello to an epic fail at producing laser effects in Fireworks.
Next drawing project, the Stormtrooper's big bro: The commander-type Stormtrooper Savage!
UAF-01[MP]-A Stormtrooper Height: Max. 14.02 meters Weight: Max. 81.22 metric tons Engine Type: G-33D1 Conduit Fusion Core First Deployment: Ghost Records Conflict 19th November M.C. 347, Battle of Regalia HQ Pilot(s): Ability-Assisted-Combat-Clones [Mind System] Battle Rating (Original/As of present): ---/**** Production Type: Mass-Production Third Generation Aggressor Unit *Special Equipment: VBW-01G Antigravity Surface Repulsion Engine Type-Mass
Summary: Mainstay unit of the Ultimatum Order, these high-performance machines are mostly piloted by A.A.C2. Clones; artificially-created humans made for combat and imbued with D.N.A. and knowledge from the best T.I.T.A.N. pilots in the human habitat sphere, and occasionally a native from the Ultimatum Sphere. Well-armored and armed with a single Big Wall ablative-coated shield, one ST-01 [L-4] plasma assault rifle, two ST-02 laser blades, 8-shot reload-capable (ST-07) missile packs and an arm-mounted rocket anchor. The Stormtroopers can also carry either a ST-03 [L-6] heavy plasma cannon, ST-04 55mm autocannon, ST-05 anti-structure laser sword with an attached rocket anchor at the hilt, or ST-06 105mm coilgun rifle. At the onset of their deployment, the Stormtroopers gained ground quickly because of its high performance and a lack of defensive equipment that could stand up against energy weapons. Its Antigravity Engine allows it full combat capabilities in any environment, the tradeoff being that it is slower than specialized units. Unfortunately for the defenders, the Stormtrooper comes equipped with extra thrusters that give it a speed boost, turning it into the most powerful mass-production unit known to man at that time.
