I'd probably describe this as being a real world version of the Dynalar/Zetatech Grasshopper rather than the Stark Industries Iron Man armor, but that's sort of an obscure reference.

Props to those who know it.
I had to go look it up, but that seems an accurate assessment.

So the TALOS prototypes should be delivered sometime this month.  Anyone hoping they actually release photos?

Y'know, I'll admit that I am a bit afraid that the real TALOS will not look as cool as stuff I've seen in pop culture.  Turns out one of the top pop culture designers is actually helping out.  I'm still a little leery, considering this is a real life military project, and those have such an awesome track record.  Gotta keep the hope alive, though.

*Sigh* I really am spoiled by sci-fi, you know.  Even on the clunky end of the power armor spectrum, you get little gems like this beauty:

And what do we get in actual real life?  Robotic arm and leg braces.  Though I get that there is a process that needs to be gone through.  We wouldn't have F-22 fighter jets today if the Wright brothers hadn't flown around a motorized kite, after all.  And there is some progress.  Though by the time the stuff I've been waiting for actually comes, I'm gonna need one just to move around.  Tongue

  Not to be mean, but nothing human could wear that armor. His arms have either been ripped out of their socket or are tucked into the torso... except the torso isn't big enough for that. And that knee to ankle length is terrifying. Though maybe his foot is supposed to be in the flared portion at the bottom of the shin.

  Honestly I can't wait for some real power armor so drawing them like their external proportions are human-like will finally stop.

Yeah, the closest we might get would, at best, look like Shirow's Landmates in Appleseed.

It is important to remember that after its available even expert operators like Dunan and Briarios hover skim with the antigrav system because running in the is really fixing dangerous because it's so easy to dislocate the landmate's hips which will quite possibiliy result in severing both of your legs.

Ya think so, eh?

Carlos from CB (1:07:00) was particularly proud of the way they pulled it off.

  I do. Move the arm in ANY direction from that pose - there's an armor joint lined up with the middle of his humerus Smiley. Especially towards the post in the initial picture. Nice to see the leg placement though. Points for that.
