Maybe - We'll see.

Nice work! On the subject of availability - I'm no expert on compatible lists, but am I right in saying it would be best to come in packs of 3 ?


Still not sure about the pack make-up. I'm thinking about 3 - but I have to consider how to maximize weapon options and poses...

Surely with batches of 3 (assuming you cast 3 torsos and 3 leg options) you'd get 9 possibilities as against 4 for 2? You seem to be planning to offer all weapons for each anyway..? Seems a shame to sell in ones and end up with half the legs unused. If the is to be redundancy I would personally think better to have weapons integrated with arms, giving even more pose options plus the chance to magnetise if required...

I have to keep the part count under control to avoid super high unit costs. Also - the arms can't be separate due to joint vs casting issues.

I was thinking 3 sets of legs, 3 torsos (with arms), 3 "connection rings" to allow for torso twists, and 3 weapon sprues per pack.

Your pack contents sounds good to me.

"I suppose I should make some suggestions on what i'd like to see..... ;)

Light skimmers, already mentioned somewhere.....
Some kind of dropship, able to deploy the combat rigs and infantry...
Aerospace units!"

I cannot stress highly enough how much I agree. 8)

Personally, a large transport based on the style and locomotion of the OTC tanks so far would be nice, but not as a drop-ship: That I'd like to see more as a winged flyer. the Transport should be like a large combat-capable LCAV carrying a full platoon of infantry, or a couple of groups of Rigs, or two OTC tanks, and with built-in firepower to act as a temporary fire-base once grounded and empty.

Skimmers - Would like to see some squad carriers and light fire-support vehicles here, though for many purposes the Rigs do the latter; More like a 'Light cavalry' tank equivalent.

The Kaiju Mega Rig is done!!

I plan on releasing them in squads of 3 - 3 torsos, 3 sets of legs, 3 connector rings allowing for torso twists, and 3 sprues of weapons and accessories:

This allows for quite a number of options:

I agree totally badass piece of kit!

Post subject:  Re: OTC Thread

I would suggest having at least one of the arms pointing forward in an actual firing pose? Otherwise they look good.
