A plastic version was available at StarShip Modelers at one time. Nicely made from Japan and I believe based on the Japanese SST animated series.
That model looks nothing like the power suit in my head, which will always be this:
Ha Ha, yeah.
But that one doesn’t really match the descriptions in the novel which has large backpacks of bombs and such. The one featured in the article is a more feasible match to the fiction.
I want to kill some bugs.
Is ST the novel the first real conception of “the mech” as we think of it today? I can’t think of an earlier reference to such a contraption.
Yes, it’s from the Japanese anime series, not as described in Heinlein.
Wasn’t the verbiage something like “giant metal gorilla”? I haven’t reat the book in probably ten years but I read it probably a dozen times before that.
