Buru Buru Loading

GearHead Caramel can now load a complete SAN-X9 BuruBuru mecha from a text file. I can’t necessarily say everything is functioning yet, but it’s all there. The GHC version is 52.5 tons and is worth $117,280, which fits between the GH1 values (45.0 tons, $106,287) and GH2 values (53.0 tons, $194,368).

Here is the complete text of the mecha description file:

It’s a bit more verbose than the GH1/GH2 mecha description language, but it gets the job done.
