Life Size Starship Troopers Battlesuit Is Really Impressive

No, what’s seen below isn’t a badly executed tribute to Metroid and if you’re thinking Paul Verhoeven, wrong too. Apparently Bandai (of Gundam fame) adapted Robert A Heinlein’s classic Starship Troopers into a six-part anime miniseries titled Starship Troopers OVA.
