VRA-112 'Stallion' Roadstriker by Grebo-Guru VRA-112 'Stallion' Roadstriker by Grebo-Guru
This machine is a transformable motorcycle from the "Operation Rimfire" Mekton adventure. I'll be the first to admit the design is more than a little derivative of the Garland from Megazone 23. Anyway, it is copyright and everything R. Talsorian Games, no infingement, etc.

It previously appeared in the Roadstriker II book, before being adapted for Operation Rimfire. Yes, it's a Garland homage, but that's the basis for its appeal. :)

There was another mechabike of similar type in the book, wasn't really up to Stallion levels of awesomeness, now that I think about it. Don't know what I'm gonna do when Mekton Zero comes out. ^^; Thanks for posting the game mecha online, they still look good!

In my opinion, any transforming motorcycle mecha is going to end up looking like either a Garland derivative (if a large Roadstriker-scale unit) or a Cyclone derivative (if a small Roadstriker or Human-scale unit). Best to just roll with it.

Damn, you DO know your stuff. I used to agree, but the Motoslave and various Transformers toys have proved me wrong. Of course, this was drawn long before those TF toys were made. (Though not before the Motoslave.)

I gotta say I'm very impressed with your comments. It's the most observant, cogent mecha commentary I've gotten here on DA. Wow!
