    Hi.

    Can anyone think of a good figure to use as the basis for a Skywatch crash suit, as seen in IDW's ongoing comic series?

    (There are clearer pics in the issue proper, though not ones I've seen online just yet.)

    That looks a lot like the old Diaclone Powered-Suits. I'll try to find a pic...

    I found more pics, which might help.


    Hmm... those Powered Suits look a bit on the blocky side.

    I dunno if the Zaku would be a great fit, but I could be wrong.


    You know, there is some other type of suit in some anime or other which these remind me of, but I can't quite place it off of the top of my head...

    The VOTOMS mechs perhaps? I could see these working - or perhaps DOUGRAM? The VOTOMS suit even has the gut-grip/ladder-step thing.
