The term mecha (メカ meka) may refer to both scientific ideas and science fiction genres that center on giant robots or machines controlled by people. Mechas are typically depicted as humanoid mobile robots. These machines vary greatly in size and shape, but are distinguished from vehicles by their humanoid or biomorphic appearance and size—bigger than a human. Different subgenres exist, with varying connotations of realism. The concept of Super Robot and Real Robot are two such examples found in Japanese anime. The term may also refer to real world piloted humanoid or non-humanoid robotic platforms, either currently in existence or still on the drawing board (i.e. at the planning or design stage).
Obviously inspired by Japanese anime and manga, Devil Toys has incorporated mecha into their design of 1/6th scale figures and they are offering these two Carbine and DXIII 12-inch figures to start the ball rolling! They are called Advance Radical Mechanical Soldiers and they look pretty CoOL!
