We all know that an Alpha fighter/guardian/battloid can link with a Beta fighter. 

But can an Alpha battloid link with a Beta battloid to form a giant, super Battloid??  That would be awesome. D:

No it can’t. There is no evidence anywhere of two Robotech verithechs combining battloid modes.

Taking a look at how the Alpha can be in Battloid mode while connected to the Beta in fighter mode, what would happen if they were both to be connected in Battloid mode would make it look more appealing for those who like robot on robot action.

Well, it doesn’t look like a fan-made pic.  It looks like a studio pic or something that ended up on the editing room floor.

In any case, I think it would be possible for the two battloids to link up.  Just because we don’t see it in the animation doesn’t mean it isn’t possible.  It would be cool to see in upcoming RT productions. D:

Fan made? No, it’s more than likely Mospeada promo art. They have a ton of pictures like that for Mobile Suit Gundam, and Macross.

That is most likely a fan made picture. Even if that was a concept drawing, the fact that the concept was dropped discounts it. Promotional art is not canon either.

you guys are all ridiculous. If you want to see a super battloid, theres MANY many cartoons with combining robots. Transformers is a great one.

but really, let robotech BE robotech.

Why would it need to?  The only known docking ports on the Alpha are the under-side, and between the Battloid’s legs it appears.  The Beta extends a “beam” out he front that the Alpha rests on when it is docked.  The Alpha is able to assume Fighter or Battloid mode here, we never see it form a Gaurdian while docked.  The Beta can switch to its “Gaurdian” mode though, deploying its legs.

I really can’t see why the Alpha wouldn’t be able to trasnform to Battloid while docked to a Gaurdian Beta.

Check this out: http://www.artemisgames.com/robotech/images/coolab.jpg

This appears to me to be more of a G mode Beta docked to a B mode Alpha.  If the Beta was in Battloid mode like your suggesting, the wings would have retracted into the housing.  While the housing in question does form the forearms of the Battloid and they are not flush/orientated correctly I don’t see a compelling reason to make them stationary as they contain guns (allowing them to be mobile allows them to increase their coverage).

Didn’t all his troops in the first battle have their betas like that?  It makes perfect sense to do that though.  He would have his chest and VTOL to go in reverse, the Beta’s boosters to push forward, his feet to move upward, and I’m sure thrust vectoring or whatever for any other direction.

Just to make things a bit more amusing if we’re discussing canon as what we’ve seen in the series, it means no sabers for Lancer. He never once extended his blades in the series.

It’s an ability that was intended by the makers of the series, much like Beta in Guardian with Alpha in Battloid, just never made it.
