  Ah, so that explains that yellowish and grey looking robot I've seen in
some clips. Very excellent design, I like it. It certainly looks alot
tougher than the TA, that's for sure, and it completely lacks that wierd
stuff on the back of its legs!

  Yes, that would almost make it all worth it... of course, the spine and
the tail both look pretty odd, I hope there's an actual reason given for
that sort of strange design style... I mean, a _tail_?
