Mecha RPG Plot

I'm working on a mecha game for some friends of mine, and I've reached abit of a stump. I really want to do something like Gunpla Builders. It'd allow for all sorts of types and styles of mechs. But I'm worried it'd end up too episodic, with the "rival" group and eventually ending up fighting them at the world championship. I also have no idea if it'd be better to start them with a generic grunt, or let them go straight to the Gundams in that scenario. But then, if they start with the Gundams where would they go from there?
The other idea was a standard "war happens, mobile suits, pilots" type thing. I'm kind of stumped and hoping that /m/ would be willing to help storm up some neat plot ideas and suggestions on one or the other. Thanks.

The great men of Happy Scans just released the Giant Robo manga.
Some of you may remember the epic, stellar Giant Robo OVA series, directed by the great Yasuhiro Imagawa. Truly a masterpiece. Here, however, we present you the original manga it was based on, another Sci Fi classic by our man, Mitsuteru Yokoyama. A more...uplifting story than Mars, to be certain. Featuring the heroes controlling Giant Robo against the world-domination plotting group Big Fire.
Thanks to our friends at Dynamic Pro for scanning this beast and Chaos for his epic translation work. And a big thanks to our man Ani_ for his great typesetting, and Kazu for his QC job. Hope to have volume 2 out before long!
Also, check their Henshin Ninja Arashi manga release. That one is awesome and should be read by everyone:
