Toy Name: The Jellymech Incident
Toy Type: Sqwert
Toy Story: In the late sixites, like so many times before, evolution took place.
This time it happened in the sea, which at this point was getting crowded and lifeforms were getting pushed towards the shores. This caused jellyfish to evolve. Some developed stingers to create some more space around them, some developed a knack for engineering and by around 1974 they had developed a mechanized suit that would allow them to move out of the sea and onto land without loss of mobility or wetness.
By 1981 the jellyfish stopped all production of mecha and decided to stay in the sea. The reason for scrapping the Jellymecha project was that even though the mecha were of excellent mobility, jellyfish’ sense of of balance doesn’t really work out of the sea and quite often they’d topple over.
Furthermore, Jellyfish engineers never really took gravity into their calculations as they don’t use it in their everyday life in the sea.
As a result the mecha couldn’t withstand hitting the ground, so whenever a Jellymech pilot lost his balance, his mech would break.
Broken jellymecha with desperate-looking jellyfish in them would often be seen lying around on the shores of the countries surrounding the North Sea between 1974 and 1980-81, but never for very long as dogs would find their leaking, stinking oil perfect for rolling around in and thus crush them beyond recognition.
