I'm not sure if many of you know this about me, but I am kind of a sucker for giant robots... in fact, in my old life as a journalist, I began a column on the subject (http://www.gamespy.com/articles/954/954832p1.html) shortly before departing for Ubisoft.

So, if you follow that link, you will know my mind on the subject of Macross (aka Robotech in the US), one of the original giant robot series. Over the years, I have been a fan of everything from MechWarrior to Voltron, so working on Avatar has been great fun thanks to the awesome AMP suit.

My question to all of you is, what are some of your favorite giant robots?

Macross Frontier VF-25F (I've got three words for this one, and they are all "hummina"!)

Awesome! Me, I want everything from Macross Zero and Macross Plus. I already have a YF-19 and an old-school Valkyrie. I just wish these things weren't so darned expensive.

Well, believe it or not, but my two favourite robots actually are K-9:

And,of course, the best of them all, the one, the only... Marvin:

Now, they might not look like much, but K-9 has saved the universe a good few times and Marvin can kill just by telling someone his world-view http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
