Urbie Watch!
« on: 04 August 2022, 15:25:42 »
Since there's been a great deal of hubbub about the giant inflatable UrbanMech, I submit this thread as a way to compile the various pictures and updates. For those sending Urbie Watch updates from GenCon itself, time stamps are appreciated! And remember,

he's trying his best.

The inflatable’s armor and mobility are remarkably faithful to the original.

Thanks for those - that's a pretty spectacular blow-up lawn ornament!  I want a Santa-themed one for Christmas ;D

"Well, I do, Marcus, and rule number one of the MAC has always been that the man with the plan leads. If we get shot up, I'm the first one to get my ticket punched. There are no flags in the MAC."
"And there never will be," Barton said, nodding his head in agreement.

"You guys are facing a freaking Shadow Division! These guys have strict policies against playing fair!"

"I don’t care. Kill them. I planned the defense so I know it will work. If they claim otherwise, they’re cowards. Any step back is a betrayal of me, and saying they don’t have enough men is just an excuse for incompetence and disloyalty. Tell the Krypteia to do it if you’re too soft but get it done." -Emperor Stefan Ukris Amaris I

Cappie infantry were also seen moving into the area:

The Urbie claims its first victim. (copied from the Leviathans thread)

And now for the bad news.

The BT developers decided they didn't want any competition and...an accident...

A helium-filled Leviathan balloon would be spectacular.

Life-sized would probably be impractical though.

Forced perspective...just tell everyone it's at a much higher altitude.
Thought I might get a rocket ride when I was a child.          We are the wild youth, 
But it was a lie, that I told myself                                          Chasing visions of our futures.
When I needed something good.                                            One day we'll reveal the truth,
At 17, I had a better dream; now I'm 33, and it isn't me.        That one will die before he gets there.

But I'd think of something better if I could
