Is this a hardsuit? Let's weigh in.

Thanks to Caleb Cutlass-Crocodile Blanchet for today's find.

To me it seems more of a mech. I wouldn't wear it to a party and it has guns mounted on it.

Well, one of the TWO DOES have hands, so you can't go by that, and it is smaller, the only thing is the fact that the pilot does sit in it, he doesn't wear it...Fail?

To me, that's definitely not a hardsuit. In a hardsuit [in my opinion], the persons legs extend out with the "hardsuit's" legs, and control the movement. In the one given example, the minifig is sitting down in the chest/head area. To me, that is definitely not a hardsuit.

No, no hardsuit.... in essence a hard suit is a mechanized 'suit' thus you wera it, not sit in it, not lay in it, not do headstands in it. It is worn, just like you would a nice suit.

Yeah, that's not a hardsuit in my book; Joe and Will said it all. Plus, that's some heavy weaponry to wear on your arms if it WERE a hardsuit. =)

nope, big fail on this one, my Prime Directive for hard suits boils down to "piloted vs. worn" as in, Samus Aran dose NOT pilot her suit...-M.K.

When deciding whether a creation is a hardsuit/powered armor you need to think about not just method of control or size but armament, protection to the pilot/wearer. As far as whether armament is hard mounted or not what happens if a "hand" could be interchanged with a weapon rather than just holding it? Take my Claymore HWV it's big and well armed (I know I call it combat armor)but the pilot's head is exposed and control is taken directly from the brain (not even sent to the body except for critical organs like the heart, liver and lungs) to the armor much like control is taken from the brain and transmitted to our own limbs. Does that mean he wears it, because almost no physical control is used to operate the machine. Sorry for making it so long, just complicating things a bit more :P

alright It's been awhile since anyone has said anything here so Pete, are you ready to give the final ruling on this one? I figure whoever starts the "Pass or Fail" for a given thing should pass final judgment... if your not ready to say either way just yet thats cool just figured I'd put that out there...
