  I agree.
  I suggest that you consider a 'feminine-styled' design ethic as well.
For example, almost all of the Five-Star-Stories mecha have a feminine
'Erte' look to them, as do many of the WGEW robots, particularly the wing
and the Sandrock.

  And breasts... don't forget that!

  Hey, the Nobel Gundam definately had a _large_ armored blonde
'hairpiece' that served just that very function!
