Rangers Project has a Kickstarter campaign going on for their new 15mm Salamander Mech. They’ve made more than 3x their funding goal already, so it’s all stretch goals for the next 18 days.

From the campaign:

15mm or 1/100 is a classic scale compatible with both modern wargaming and plamo mecha lines. The model will stand at approximately 12cm tall or 4 and 3/4″.

We have 3D files for the model already prepared. It will come in no less than 24 parts and be capable of all the poses seen here and more!

    These look great. I’m glad they got funding but given all the KS drama lately (not these guys, just in general) I think I’ll have to pick these up when they go to retail.

    Why do designers still insist on putting all the armored firepower in the future world on tiny little ankles and feet.

      Because it sets them apart from the bell-bottomed toy designs. It’s pretty much the easiest way to check if a robot in a show was designed to be a toy- if it’s got wide feet, it’s almost certainly so the toy stands on it’s own easily. Personally, i’m loving this design.

    • Because chickens are fast, agile and intimidating? Also everyone knows that scaling does not affect structural integrity concerning mass and gravity in any way 😛

      I guess the short answer is it’s a common design aesthetic or design flaw depending on who you ask.

      If it weren’t for the legs I’d go for this.

        Mechs are inherently impossible, so if you can do anything, you might as well do it the way you want. In this case, with small feet. I prefer it to huge slabs of feet like Gundam, but to each their own.
