Buster Suit Samus Aran

I like the idea of Samus' suit in Metroid being this large contraption that just keeps building up as she acquires more power-ups and weaponry; when I was younger I thought it was a little unrealistic that this tiny, ultra-thin suit housed a half dozen different beams, 255 missiles, 12+ energy tanks, and other goodies :)

I thought the array on her back would be interesting, a combination weapon swapper and missile feeder that would open up the tank on her back and pull out whatever she needed on the fly; I did another iteration of this idea before where the arms just hang around holding the weapon externally, which I thought would be cool but would make the weapons vulnerable to damage.
