And Now I Can Form the Head!
I originally strayed away from combiner mecha because of two reasons: one, Voltron scale constructs pretty much break the D20 Modern rule system in half. Something like a true combiner Megazord or Devastator or Voltron is a fucking beast.
Second, and more importantly, I couldn't really see a way to involve all the players in the action (usually the episode's climactic fight) when combined. Using Voltron as an example- only the Black Lion's player would get to act, since his lion is controlling the mecha. The other four PCs would just have to sit in their cockpits and maybe roll an Aid Another action each round, basically turning them into spectators.
Good reasons not to include combiner mechs, right? Anyway, I think I may have found a way around both problems. So expect to see combiner Mecha-Kaiju in Sentai Sequel.
