At first I was about to laugh at the poor picture taking and having a finger in the shot for the shirts. Then I realized you're covering up an obviously to-be-announced mech. Given the large arm-mounted missile launchers, the very distinct torso frame, and the hints of the head with a single antenna mount . . . I could dare murmur the elusive word "hope" that it is a Crusader . . . however I won't be surprised if that isn't the case.

It does say that for the pins, but I am pretty sure it applies to both.

You have to be aware PGI has no physical merchandising rights according to their licensing agreement with Microsoft, so selling this merchandise on the web site would breach their license. But doing so at a general BattleTech (not specifically a MechWarrior) event like MechCon would be fine.

I am sure PGI would love to offer this. They are just limited by their license that's all.

Why advertising things you can buy only at Mech Con?

Most people here don't have tickets and the ones who have will see it there.

Is that some kind of celebrating youself?

I'd buy an SLDF Keychain if it shined like the one in MWO.

Oh, is that a new mech?

Looks like an IS mech. My first thought was a light like the Locus. But who knows, some one will narrow it down.

So you're promoting merch that can only be purchased on Mech Con when people at Mech Con can simply see the merch in person?

Did a little digging and the crusader's original hero mech Crael, mentioned on sarna has 4 high mounted srm6's

This is straight from sarna;

Quote

"CDR-3R Crael...Used by "Crusading Crael", the reigning champion of the DeathRain Arena in Port Krin on Antallos in 3057, this heavily modified Crusader had huge spikes protruding from its chest and shoulders; the latter served to conceal missile launchers and fall off as soon as the shoulder-mounted SRMs were fired for the first time.The shoulder-mounted LRM-15 launchers of the original were replaced with two more SRM-6 racks (mounted in the side torso sections) to boost short-range firepower over the LRM's long range that was less useful in arena combat, and maximized the infighter capabilities by installing Claws on each arm"

While a good find, there are a few issues against it:

1. The camo in the picture is clearly the generic color. A hero mech is not going to ship with a completely plain color set.

2. Speaking of which, PGI never posts concept art of unique hero loadouts. They only post concepts of the "Prime" standard variant and recolor it for hero and collector variants.

3. If you look really close at the teaser you can see two thin gun barrels on the far left side (and no hand actuator that Crusaders have).

Tried to clean it up even more. There clearly are two gun barrels on that right arm...


4. That style of shoulder doesn't look like it match up with the big burly humanoid arms that a Crusader would be expected to have.

I think it's a crusader look at the concept art from sarna... That distinct cockpit.... Shoulders are subject to change because sarna concept art is how do we say??? Drawn by a 6 year old?

If it's a crusader I'm getting one

Based on the number of ports there are at least 3 srm6 on it
