Do you dig giant robots? Of course you do. The team behind City of Heroes
apparently likes them as well, seeing as how the game's next major update, Issue 23
, allows you to dress up like one. The newest Tier 9 VIP reward is the Mecha Armor costume set, and the fine people at Paragon Studios
were kind enough to give us a chance to take a sneak peek at the costume set before it's available on the test server.
The gallery below contains an image of a male, female, and huge character in the new costume set, complete with wings, backpacks, and other armor reminiscent of any number of Gundam designs. Like other Tier 9 VIP rewards, the armor will only be unlockable for a limited time, so if you're feeling a desperate need to play with these costume parts -- and we can't blame you -- it's best save up your reward tokens now.
