They were made for the video clips for the computer game EPIC: Final Liberation (pretty good game BTW.)
You'll also find pretty cool Ork suits by the same company (made also for the game) as well as a few Terminator suits (made for Games Day).

I could be wrong but those look like statue suits, good statue suits but still immobile, with people's faces photo-shopped on top.

well i dont have my glasses on but they look fairly real. and if ankara said they were in a vid clip, surely they would have moved. although i do agree there doesnt seem to be a lot of give in the elbows

Yeah, the guys in the suits moved somewhat but not too much. As far as I recall the clips with the marines were mostly edited to torsos and such.
It's certainly been a while though, the game was released back in 1997.

they look far too small for those suits

Remember these babies were made before our current range of plastic Marines was released. Can you imagine how cool they'd look with modern style Mk7 armor?

i'm trying to imagine the terminator armour! :D

i mean as far as suits go, they are superb. as well as being true scale they actually look like the miniatures. i mean to a certain degree, those guys obviously have hips.

They look too immobile me thinks, but if they were used in a video...

Also did the ork suits have helmets that looked like ork heads or what. It must have gotten pretty hot inside all the stuff

true scale but with an 25% or so reduction in size. These guys are what? 6 foot tall? Marines are closer to 8.

If you read through all the pages it show pic of them as he builds them and they are fully articulated.. Enjoy.

i remember them.
myself, i prefere the final liberation ones as they look more plausible. and the feet are better.

but they look nice. and hats off to anybody with the ambition to build their own suits.

erm yes.. quite easily really since they would be almost identical in every way.. (except the 'inner' side of the shoulderpads)
