The Fallout franchise is video game series close to my heart and many others. It's blend of post-apocalyptic exploration, combat, and its retro futurism themes have created a truly unique gaming experience. Now to the point. The T-51b Power Armor was deployed by U.S forces in their war with China in the latter part of the 21st century. This war would eventually escalate into the Great War which engulfed the Earth in nuclear fire, and its the aftermath of this war that sets the stage for Fallout.

Following the war a small group of former U.S soldiers in California formed the Brotherhood of Steel (BoS), a techno-religious paramilitary organization whose goal was the acquisition of pre-war technology, for the betterment of the post-war world. The BoS play a vital part in every Fallout game and are iconic for their use of the T-51b armor by their soldiers. Here's some pictures:

Currently, it is extremely difficult to make an even adequate version of this in Lego form. There are a couple decent examples floating around on Flickr, but that's about it. Really I think this product could please a lot of people. And honestly the real necessity is the helmet. I think Battle Armor with rounded pauldrons would work perfectly for the chest plate, we just need a helmet and we're good.

Anyway, I hope you take it into consideration at the very least, and thank you for your time. :{)

Not that I'm advertising a site, but if you are into customizing (using decals/etc.)
I'd recommend using these:

They worked pretty well for me when I made a couple of Fallout figs.

Saber-Scorpion used to be one of the original Chief Smithies on the BrickForge Forums. His decal work is pretty cool.
