This is another all-time favorites of mine. The Cyclone Armor from Robotech: The New Generation (or Genesis Climber Mospeada if you prefer)
I couldn't believe it, when I was a kid, the first time that I saw the amor in action... I wanted one so much! :D
Hope you like it.

They DID make this model in an actual transforming toy. It was a total bitch-maker.

The Cyclone/MOSPEADA was one of the most popular mechs to come out of Robotech, with the Veritech/Valkyrie from Macross of-course being #1. I remember that at the time, even Go-Bots pirated the version of the MOSPEADA with the switchblade sword in the forearm, and made it their super-deluxe Cy-Kill model.

OH MY GOD, THEY DIDN'T.
That is a total rip-off....sorry I was just interrupted by a most disturbing ad for Rogaine. anyway, what were they thinking, I would have sued them just for the thought. You don't rip-off ROBOTECH like that, ever.

Copyright enforcement was much more lax in the 1980s. Robotech and giant robot toys in general got pirated and re-branded all over the place. I can recall seeing the Legioss/Alpha fighter jet pirated in at-least four different packagings that never referenced Robotech or GCM.
And to this day, you can find Gundam ripoffs at flea markets. Hell, around the holidays, they even run out some ripoffs from DaiRugger XV of all things. That's Vehicles Voltron btw.

Wow, you learn something new everyday!

But the copyright crap you have to go through these days is insane. I know you want to protect your things, but come on.

Nice! One of my favorite mecha. Still mad that Transformers was made into movies instead of Robotech.
