NRG (suit) by Zigwolf NRG (suit) by Zigwolf
My redesign of NRG's containment suit.

I've always had a problem with NRG's design because he looked way too plain and clunky for something that was formed by an advanced alien device. Omniverse's version is a bit better but still not what I'm looking for.

For this redesign, he's still a bit clunky but a bit slimmer for better mobility, he has power regulators on his arms to keep his powers in check, he has openings on his hands and feet for energy blasts and kicks, and finally he has two power generators on his back to house all the excess energy he creates, and I added in more black to his armor to give him an original series feel.

For this version, I'd like to think this the standard suit his species wears when going to other planets or being around other alien races.

Here's his Alien Form: zigwolf.deviantart.com/art/NRG…

Personally, I actually prefer NRG's suit's more simplistic design, like in UAF/OV(though, I still don't get the handle on the helmet).

If I'm being 100% honest I'm not liking the way this looks, but I still think his UAF/OV design is too simple for my tastes, I'd like it if he had a design like this vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/b… (the second or fourth one)

Personally, of the two, I think the forth one looks the best.

It's just too bad we don't see more Prypiatosians or else we could see that all of those designs might be used for styles of their armor

True... then again, that suit is what Prypiatosians use as a prison(if word of god is to be believed) and since NRG comes from P'andor, a supposed criminal, the clunky and inconvenient aspects of his suit make sense......... or maybe they were just being lazy bastards and used the same design for both.:shrug:

You're right. It was confirmed by Dwayne McDuffie that the suits are considered prisons to Prypiatosians. And no offense to the guy when I say this but he came up with alot of weird and sometimes dumb explanations for Ben 10 related stuff so I always took his answers with a grain of salt. So the way I see it, the containment suit started as a prison for criminal Prypiatosians then was altered. One version was made to be slightly less bulky than the normal suit for anyone who wanted to go off planet and not melt or radiate everything around them and the other version is a more advanced version of the prison suit. It's bulkier for harder movement, no radiation vents, and has no hands. Basically it was made for more restriction for prisoners.

Agreed, McDuffie's explanations/retcons were "awkward," to say the least(speaking of, what are your thoughts on anodites?).

That would've actually been a really neat idea to explain/justify different suit designs... a pity that we(and by "we" I mean "the writers") never went anywhere near it(or anything in the andromeda galaxy, really) in canon.

To be honest I don't like them. They seem weird as an entire species made of mana and they can manipulate that energy which happens to be inside every living thing and around the universe and to me that seemed way too overpowered for a species plus somehow they can transform from Anodyte to Human like Verdona did. It seems like that power came out of nowhere and only was put there to explain how she was able to biologically be Ben and Gwen's grandma and could pass on her Anodyte abilities to Gwen. Though I hate the idea of these aliens I believe there's a good idea in there somewhere. Like my idea for Anodytes was that they're interdimensional beings that look like this comicbuzz.com/wp-content/uploa… and they're "energy vampires". My retcon history was that one escapes from between dimensions and sees Gwen as a source of immense energy for it to feed on. So it possesses an old lady and changes her to match the appearance of Gwen's grandma which it saw of her earlier. Then it introduces itself same way Verdona did but instead of taking Gwen to train her it want to drain her of her magical energy.

Yeah, I mean we could of at least gotten an episode where we see the andromeda aliens again and Pandor has a different look to his suit

I really hated the fact that NRG had a containment suit at all until Omniverse, because the Omnitrix wasn't connected to his body. This version is really cool though!

granted his suit didn't look like something from another planet but i liked the suit because he looked like a mobile oven\trash compacter since he's this fiery hot alien, i'm not saying your design is bad or anything i just like the simplicity and even the inconvenience of the suit, especially the omniverse design.  i'm still interested what your design of NRG himself would look like :)
