Mecha Workshop: Armarauders Bellerophon

Pilots aren't just an afterthought in Armarauders

2:00 PM on 12.16.2012 // Scarecroodle

Something of a breath of fresh air

Whoever thought December would be a slow month for toy news may be sadly mistaken, if Mecha Workshop and their new Armarauders toy line have anything to say on the matter. The line features 2-inch tall, fully articulate pilots (!) for the mechs and seems to be accompanied by a motion comic.

Armarauders (presumably a portmanteau of the words "armor" (or "armed"?) and "marauders") is certainly a welcome concept, mostly for having in-scale articulate pilots. The pilots are somewhat reminiscent of the Human Alliance figures from the Transformers line. Besides being very well-articulated (always something of a feat for the smallest scales), they seem to feature weapon accessories. My one immediate criticism, however, is that the pilots seem to lack ankle articulation. If the case, they've stopped one step short of being spectacular.

If I'm interpreting things correctly, the cockpit is in the center of the mech's chest. The mech itself, Bellerophon (likely named after the Greek mythological hero who slew the Chimera), measures around 11-inches tall. Given how unbelievably cool everything has seemed thus far, I'm expecting that the line will be pricy although the makers have thus far declined to comment on the subject.

Toyark has the full press release (with photos) for this new line, which might be a bit easier to look through than just checking out the Armarauders Facebook page.
