That's what I was aiming for
First of all, I think the mecha characters should be anything but robots that are covered in skin (terminators, androids) or lack skin only to look human. So Transformers, Go Bots, Gundams, Zords and stuff like that are ok in my book.
Armor? Sure, I don't see a reason not to include it. But, again, shouldn't look like a man dressed for halloween as the mecha version. Some parts, like Optimus' chest piece would be fine. Or full armor only when it's a knight/space marine/etc.
And I don't know about that transforming parts (I see it as a real human, not a robot), but animals would be great. Make Bumblebee as a real bumblebee, Unicorn Gundam as a unicorn (though sorry, not a robot unicorn).
