Default Crisis from XV-88's

I bought a Brodside today, and it looks like I can build a crisis suit out of it(like skyray/HH/Devilfish). Anyone else know of anything like that happening?

Yup, you can do it. The XV88 box comes with everything you'll need for a regular XV-8.

Check the prices tho. The Skyray box is good b/c it costs either the same or very close to the Hammerhead one. Also, it's good cuz the only difference b/w them is the turret. Since XV8s and 88s aren't really interchangable, it might not be worth the extra cost for the extra bits.

EDIT: What I meant was that they weren't interchangeable in the sense that a person may not want to pin/magnetize their bits or have their Crisis suits running around with those massive elephant feet.

Actually, XV8's and XV88's are VERY much interchangeable, if you know how to balance pinning for the Railguns and magnets for hard-point items/SMS arms. The problem is the feet provided with the broadside restrict motion and posing, though they are far more stable than the default Crisis legs.

I have five seige tanks, eight APC's, an artillery platform and a light mech that need resupply and repair by dusk. I need remote mines set, trenches dug, and my men fed and rested, or those Marines are going to be using us for toothpicks. Get it done, Fio'vre."

It's always been like that. That's why the Broadsides bits are metal, so they wouldn't have to make another plastic sprue.
