Honestly Guys It's a pretty damn surprising that despite how long the RIG chance item themes been going around Gaia, a mecha oriented themed RIG is still far from our our reach despite the countless DECADES worth of material we can work with.
inB4 you say, what about the Gunguy, Krieger, a large amount of already mecha inspired items. They are poorly layered reskins at best considering that most of them are the same poses vaguely referencing a source material and horridly doing it for the sake of avoiding copyright infringement. While that is completely understandable, it wouldn't hurt to give use more to work with; like shoulder armor, head gear, chest plates, face plates, visors, even wings and V-fins is really enough to work with since you can at least layer them. For the most part these items do more as body mods at best. Let alone you have a great deal of weapon design and material you can create, just asking for a little well placed inspiration that can actually sell well.
With Mecha the Options are limitless.
Super Robots (Ex. Tengen Toppa Gurren Laggan).
Linebarrels of Iron.
Brave Series Mecha. (GaoGaiGar, Might Gaine, J-Decker...)
Tokusatsu Super Sentai//Power Rangers (Decades worth of Megazords my god...).
Neon Genesis Evangaelion
Code Geass (Nightmare Frames).
Ghost in the Shell SAC
Western inspired mechas.
Video game inspired mechas
Metal Gear Series
Zone of the Enders.
All we're simply asking is that you guys can provide more inspired mecha items that does better fanservice without having layering that's complete crap. If anyone else has any edits, suggestions for items , or comments, feel free to post them. I honestly believe this idea has a lot of potential and seeing with a great deal of what Gaia promoting lately, it's not without a doubt I find a great deal of them to be easy passes....
Examples: (Will Edit)
Gundam: Obviously while Gunguy is the immediate response to what people believe they're are countless variations of Gundam inspired designs. You have have a large variance of shaped V-fins and great deal of them are often in another color and sometimes even that is not enough.
Macross: Having the signature plane design can be a plus for potential plane//jet body mods.
Gurren Lagann: More or less having Shades on your chest being the obvious... Drills are not just enough anymore we would like to have more chest armaments. Hell a fremere recolor would be popular.
King of Braves GaoGaiGar: Now we're incorporating vehicles and animal themes into building a design is rather a strikingly fun project item devs can fall behind, this also follows Power Ranger's Megazord and Voltron logic as well.
Zone of the Enders: Even non traditional mecha designs can create some pretty well inspired designs and in some cases Gaia can even do well on it's own with it's own materials.
Voltron: Asymmetrical design. Honestly you guys need to go back to the days of Automaton wears which had individual limb poses and can still layer to a degree. Think of the potential layering this with multi colored limbs it can spark something bigger than just Voltron.
