Guest of honor candidate for 2006?

This guy's not waiting for the Japanese or DARPA, he's building his own damn mecha. Otherwise good article is ruined by the obvious gaffe regarding Verhoeven's hideous movie version of Starship Troopers: there was no powered armor in the flick, which is about 30% of the reason it sucked, the other 90% being Paul Verhoeven's screenplay. Clancy Brown gets a 10% credit, imao, for keeping it merely sucky as opposed to inordinately sucky, as does Gruppenfuehrer Doogie Howser.

I say we invite the guy to AD 2006, especially if he's got the mecha going by then. Let's hear it for American ingenuity!

Tip o' the wombat's helmet to Vodkapundit.

The only way this could possibly be cooler is if it was steam-powered using coal to fire the boiler. ^___^

I was actually thinking of Sakura Wars, since I haven't seen Steam Detectives, but yeah, same idea.

Steam Detectives was a pretty good read, although I don't think it was nearly as dark as Silent Mobius was, although I only know about Silent... by reputation.
