Are you hero or villain?
WeiYang said @ 1:33pm GMT on 2nd Jul
I am Apathy Man. Power level similar to the Watcher, but lacking the strong moral sense to spur actual action.

I couldn't get you that exoskeleton, so I got you this one:

Enlarged? That's a human-sized ant suit, I'll have you know!

That suit certainly looks cool, but at this point, it's purely cosplay. This is not a prototype, it is a mockup. “We’re working on a concept for the combat suit of the future. On display is our vision of the suit we would like to develop within the next couple of years,”

It might as well be this.

The Russian suit looks more comfortable.

I always wondered why Verhooven's sad attempt at the Starship Troopers never even mentioned the powered armor that was a cornerstone in the book. They gave their wearers the constitution of a Sherman tank, the agility of a world-class gymnast, the speed of a supercharged dragster, and the firepower of a Doomsday-Prepper's™ basement.

Pretty much the base for half of the Anime and Manga that came out of Japan.

Check out the anime, Starship Troopers; Invasion!

It's the best rendition of both bug combat and power armor I've seen and it has a fairly decent plot as well. Tittties for the sake of tittties too.

"Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars" comes out this August as well.

I hear there's a remake in the works that will include the power armor and be closer to the book (unlike Verhooven's parody of book).

Starship troopers three was horrible but it did have mecha

I figured it was a budget thing; he thought it more important to spend the money on insane swarms of CG bugs than on the endless complications and expenses of filming dozens of real humans in practical power armor.

I assumed he was going for a vietnam/aliens look. The armour in the books was too overpowered to lend much tension to the battle-scenes.

You'll shoot your eye out.

Whenever I see these sci-fi wannabe full faced helmets, I always wonder how the hell do they breathe through that thing while running and doing other labor intensive activities. Clearly whoever designed it never wore helmets before. Even just a session of paintball match would've taught them how difficult it is to breathe through the paintball masks as soon as the activities ramp up, and those masks are more vented than what we see here.
