Hmm... Let's see... Decisions, decisions...

1.) The Typhoon II (I think that's the designation) motorslave from episode 6
(Red Eyes) of the BGC OVAs. To be honest, it looks a little odd when compared
to the rest of the designs in that series, as it seems to look a little more
like a conventional mecha unit than everything around it (especially the other
motorslaves), but it looks pretty cool. The hard suits are right up there, too.

2.) The Escaflowne. As others have said, big sword, big armored suit. Its
fantasy roots are so obvious that you could probably argue that calling it a
mechanical is cheating, in a way.
I could throw the Aestevalis in as number 3, but there are so many shows with
great designs that I haven't seen for at least 5 or 6 years, that I think I
ought to leave that final entry blank.
