My World : Macro Warriors
The Macro Warriors are giant robots created by Third World, and are the crowning technological achievement of that subversive organization. Of course, that doesn't mean they aren't a little buggy from time to time.
The most notable appearance of the Macro Warriors was when Third World launched a full-scale attack on Major City with a squadron of the mechanical monoliths. This epic battle led to the formation of the super team the Invincible Alliance, which is another example of Third World's exceedingly bad planning.
At least one Macro Warrior has been captured intact and is in the custody of the authorities. This refurbished robot was called into action to subdue the rampage of the giant ape Gargantua Maximus.
Giant robots are something that I enjoy a lot, so it's only natural that I would find a place for them in the Captain Satellite world. The name "Macro Warrior" is influenced by both the Shogun Warriors and Micronauts toy lines. Ah, toys in the 1970s. We had so much fun with them.
This particular profile picture is a composite of two different drawings. The pilot was drawn and colored as a separate element and then incorporated into the robot at a much smaller size. He's actually so small in the final copy that at least some of the work I put into him doesn't show up, but I know it's there and that is what counts.
