My guess is the side mirrors/handlebar guards rotate up and become part of her shoulder armor.

 The bar end mirrors (if that's what they're supposed to be) probably fold into the hand guards.

 

The hand guards themselves may pull forward a bit and tuck in flush with the front fairing and not be used as should armor at all.

Occam’s razor.

The original anime never had the hand guards/side mirrors.

For the male ride armors, those parts make up the shoulder armor.

If they don’t become part of the shoulder armor in the Bartley, then why even add them in the first place?

Instead of having Houquet sporting massive wide shoulder pads, I suspect this is Sentinel’s way of balancing out the look of the shoulders in the combined mode.

You mean Robotech toys.  Southern Cross toys don't exist, and never did.  :(

You know it's strange. As a kid, I just saw that old hovertank toy and just labeled it a Southern Cross toy. I don't think I noticed the branding on the box back then. But I know I got that at a Circus World. It was always about the toy unless something was off like that Transformers Jetfire that looked like a veritech but wasn't.


But with the Cyclone and mini veritech with the rotating heat shields. I know I got them at a smaller mall toy store that perhaps sold some imports as well. Because I know I had Scott's big Cyclone, the Gakken I believe. But also the small ones for Rook and Lancer. And I don't believe those were United States domestic releases. At least I don't remember the boxes saying Robotech. I checked Anymoon and he says there was a Robotech release. This is the small version I'm talking about, I think I posted about it before.

I can't remember where I purchased the Gakken Alpha Fighter. I would bet it was that same mall store where I purchased the Cyclones. I guess I have more of a memory of the Cyclones and veritechs because I was surprised to see them. They were at the front of the store on the right as soon as you walked in and I think it was near Christmas time and snowing. The store had aisles but the Cyclones were on tables across from the register.

Another Head swap in the helmet for Four characters instead of doubles. 

Not sure if redying the cloth uniform as I did with the last custom one. 

Also getting the Armoury Ready too.

Still need to build Moscato Rocket Launcher to add to Plastic Cretins along with old model kits weapons too.

Blowsperior gets a Warm Welcome once he is released (anytime soon I hope).

Here are some initial suggestions;

Stick - Zac Efron 

Yellow- Aston Kutcher 

Amiee Garcia*- Houquet

Diego Luna*- Ray

*= I cant immediately think of any Brazilian or Bolivian actors if were following the map.

Given the displacement of the invasion, I don't think you have to be very careful with nationalities. Houquet is French and she's in South or Central America. I don't even know that Ray has an official last name so he could be any nationality.

Aston Kutcher, no way man.  No way.

There rest I could live with, although if Alexis Bledel was younger she'd make a great Houqet.  Fun fact, she's Argentinean.

Isabela Moner. You can't go wrong with Dora, right? ;) 

Though I forgot Mint's nationality. So I'm just guessing here.

Rubble could be Robles- so that would work. And no, you cant go wrong with Dora.

Instead of Bolivian we could make her Argentine, since it use to be a French colony. Plus I'd wanna keep it latin personally.

I think Mint has to be Columbian since Panama was part of Columbia:

Absolutely on Mint.

My bad. When I said;

"Instead of Bolivian we could make her Argentine, since it use to be a French colony. Plus I'd wanna keep it latin personally." 

I was referring to Hoquet.

 

Additional observation; am I the only one who thinks Ray generally represents you the viewer in the MOSPEADA story? Hes the only one with no origin story or background whatsoever. He' s minimally experienced with a ride armor, but most skilled for a terran- and develops through the show. Thoughts?

Nope, french immigration was very little in Argentina. The Guianas are a best escenario for her birthplace.

K, based on the map eps. 8 is where Hoquet's origin story took place. I originally said Bolivian, but its actually Peru.

This discussion is making me think that since Reflex Point is in Canada, the human looking Inbit should be based on the local population.  It's got me thinking Strange Brew.  :blink:

Yeah, that map provided by by Blackconvey above—if official—indicates that Reflex Point is between Lake Winnipeg and Lake Superior (not coloured on the map).  More specifically, between Lake of the Woods (you know, the Northwest Angle) and Lake Nipigon (1st time I've come across that name, too :lol:), deep in the Canadian Shield, approximately 50 km from the border.

Given that those smaller lakes are fairly accurately drawn on that map, I'm tempted to say that it was a fairly deliberate choice to locate it there.  Perhaps one reason is that that area is full of waterways, making travel by motorcycle and other ground vehicles almost impossible?

Bella Thorne??? I guess...She can't really act anyway...Aisha just stays quiet 90% of the time and will do shrieks here and there so...

upvote on Joe, Evan and Ruby...

Mint can just be any girl off the street because they'd be so hyped on a first acting gig and do everything over the top just like Mint would. She provided comedic relief in the show. Even her drama was laughably over the top. Ask any aspiring little actress to do a dramatic scene and they'll get her character right on the first try. Probably cast straight out of a school play.

Unfortunately they might just cast Tom Cruise in the lead role of Scott Bernard because he has Top Gun, and Edge of Tomorrow under his belt; and he does his own stunts. Oh, and he's halfway there with aliens, spaceships, etc. with Scientology.

That's Robotech, not Mospeada:

Appreciated and noted. But the pic was from gears as my original point of reference;

Either way, I'd like it for a Riobot Ray.
