Megabug Gladiators Mecha For Your Post Apocalyptic & Vintage Sci Fi Campaigns ...

"The mega bugs are sweeping through the undergrowth of the jungle! Mechas straight out of the 70s to reappear in the alien gladiatorial arenas of Carcosa & Cha'alt  today!"

Recently I've been going back over my old campaign notes & came across my stats for the Megabug Gladiator toys from the Kenner toy company that I used on my version Carcosa setting. Originally these came from the excellent Pallid Stallions toy/nostalgia site here.  These mecha are perfect for my Cha'alt/Carcosa campaign coming up.

These incredible mechas were recently discovered on Carcosa and have resumed their former murderous activity in gladiatorial combat. They are used by alien insectoid mercenaries, often for the salary of 1d4 relics or  1d4 artifacts as well as t the pleasure of being able to test their mettle against each other.

The extraterrestrial insectoids that drive these mechas have often been seen across the galaxy, in recent eons, in their strange organic bio armor, doing research and meddling in galactic affairs. These mechas and their pilots would have been seen on Earth during the various wars, in particular when atomic weapons were used.

Mega Bugs are toys from the toy  company Kenner.The idea all of the  photos come from the Plaid Stallions site .
