Why not let Alex run wild and make an all new Mech chassis?

OK, even I'm sick to death of that situation that I don't want anything to do with it.
I would actually prefer to let Alex Inglasis have a free hand and come up with some new Mechs that fill similar roles, like a twin PPC heavy mech.

There are, from what I can tell, 254 different IS chassis published in Technical Readouts. I can see off hand a few holes in this list, too, so there are actually more this includes the "unseen" or "reseen", whever you want to call them; it does not consider variants to be different unless they have a mark number, I.E. The Enforcer III is distinct from the Enforcer.
There are plenty of canon designs. Get all of them into the game first, then start worrying about 'new' designs.
EDIT: identified that I meant 254 IS chassis, I did not count Clan chassis yet.
EDIT 2: about 140 canon Clan Mechs. That's almost 400 chasis to bring out (though naturally several of both sets are post-3050 chassis).

And I see no problem at all with new Mechs from PGI, I am sure they can come up with some brilliant designs contrary to what many of the Battletech fundamentalists think. I am also sure that they will introduce new Mechs if/when the game establishes itself in the near future.

*dangerous terrain Alex dangerous terrain* .....
why create something new if what we have has not yet been converted he can have fun with remaking old designs I think the "new" can be done be dedicated amateurs (and no amateur does not mean bad):

well as long as it keeps the intended functionality of the unseens design,ie archers lrm support role w/the armer to backit up/its feel of doing what its intended to who cares if it looks just the same?!
i want a locust for its speed and small size,and its verients more then anything else as those are what makes it a locust most!
if it wines up looking a little like a jenner soo what i can still play it in this game and look at the old art work in any of my source books no biggy for me.
