Someone else mentioned Gurren Lagann, but truth is I'd never heard of it. These were all just the ones I knew were key, and there were honestly too many Japanese mechs to choose from. My biggest regret: The Big O. Wish I'd included him...
Thanks dude! Smaller suit mechs were originally in my plan, but then I realized I had about 30 movies and that would be ridiculous. Wish I could have included mech suits from Aliens, District 9, Avatar, Innerspace, etc.
Those are some badass mechs! Very similar to the ones in the movie. I didn't know the game (I actually don't play video games, shh, don't tell anyone) but I appreciate the info. Always good to get the 411 on some awesome-ass mechs!
Gotta be honest, I had never heard of Gurren Lagann before you mentioned it, but after looking at it briefly it looks crazy and I can't wait to watch an episode or two. There were quite a few Japanese mechs I left out for redundancy purposes, most heartbreakingly for me being The Big O. Thanks for the recommend!
You're right, I did make that mistake! A few friends pointed it out afterwards. It turns out that robot is CALLED a Warhammer, but it's not 40K. Three letters off! Don't particularly feel like correcting it, although if enough people complain I might. As for the chronology, for some reason a lot of the robots I picked were retro (Big Guy, Iron Giant, etc) and looked off so I decided to just order them aesthetically. The monsters are chronological, though. Thanks!
