Research #1 - Possible Metal/Alloy for construction of Mazinger Z

A project log for Mazinger Z (Tranzor Z)

What is Mazinger Z you ask? Mazinger Z is a powerful, 20 meter tall, flying single pilot mech/robot.

gmSo, I've narrowed down the already existing metal alloys which could be used to build Mazinger Z. The possible alloys I have chosen are, Depleted Uranium Alloy, Magnesium, New Magnesium based alloy, Scandium and/or Nitinol (Nickel Titanium). However, one day I shall intent to create a material as strong as Super Alloy Z. Here are some images of what the alloys look like and what they are used for:

Nitinol (Nickel Titanium):

Scandium (Lightweight and has a very high melting point):

New Magnesium based alloy, (light as lithium, strong as titanium)(it has an exceptional strength and is extremely lightweight is made of 86% of magnesium, and 14% of silicon carbide particles):
