Not sure if Nirvash and The End in larval form count as mecha... assuming they're something akin to the coralian "archetype" that forms the core of the Nirvash mech. Since we don't even know if these are going to grow up into LFOs in the movie, or if the original Nirvash and The End just had babies, I think they should be left out for the moment.
However, here's the new LFO line art from the site-

Nirvash in formal wear
(Are these its "SOF colors"? I don't recall if it appeared in different colors in the first PS2 game, or in the flashbacks in the TV series.)

the movie is out and subbed, and I watched it.
Notable changes in the mechs from the movie:
*The Nirvash spec 1's boomerang knife now has a three prong mode, which the blade halves split apart with a third inside.

*The Devilfish now has a "compac feedback system" which sends out some sort of wavelength, that I assume involves Trapars, and allows it to "see" the "souls" of the everybody, including the image, it also had an effect on Renton, he said he could hear his heartbeat. It also has an option whether or not to release the limiter.

* the Nirvash's Digivolution to spec 2 is different. It's basis is the same, evolving through Renton and Eureka being together, though instead of just the Archetype trying to evolve resulting in the Science co upgrading it, the entire LFO transforms to spec 2 by itself. The Triangles on it's shoulder armor now can pop out and shoot homing lasers, similar to theEND's.

*Spec 3 has a type of sword/staff like thing now. it appearance is far different(i'll take a screenshot), as well as the cockpit. It also has bits.

The Devilfish actually always had a Compac Feedback System - so do the Mon-Soonos. In the series, though, it was only used for control. If I remember correctly, its purpose is to allow people to pilot LFOS/KLFs without needing the kind of exceptional reflexes/balance/whatever skill that the SOF pilots and Gekkostate's pilots have. Notably, it has some kind of electrodes or connectors that attach to the head and face. This was brought up late in the series, around the time that the Mon-Soono pilots from the Izumo were beating up on Holland. Not sure if the Compac Feedback System contributed to the negative effects on Holland's health/physical stability while he was piloting the Devilfish, or if that was just the g-forces and neurostimulants.

All that stuff you describe it doing in the movie is new, though.

So, I saw the movie, and I have a few things to add.

I thought the triangles on Spec 2's shoulders fired missiles, not lasers. Hard to tell, though, with all the missiles and lasers flying everywhere in most scenes.

The Terminus type R909 and type R606 are seen in the Gekko's hanger early in the film. I believe Hilda piloted the 909 shortly after.
Later, the type R808 is seen in battle - it wasn't too clear to me, though, which machines were fighting on which sides. I believe in this battle the main U.F. Force group fielded at least one 909 and possibly another Terminus-type, and the Gekko group used a 606 and an 808. The U.F. Force also DEFINITELY had Spearhead SH-101s, and I think they were in both Ray's and Charles' colors.
Furthermore, in the flashback to the events surrounding the Tragedy of Doha, I'm pretty sure Dominic and Anemone are seen standing in front of a black Spearhead in the type of hanger we usually saw The End in during the TV series. If that's not what it was, then it was a redesign of The End with a buttload of "goggle"-style eyes.

For all the above points - Spec 2's shoulder weapons and all the Terminus and Spearhead appearances - screencaps from anyone who could provide them would really help - or just a fine-tooth-comb freeze-frame scouring of the film for the details of these appearances.
I'm not sure if there were any shots of the new design for Spec 3 that would depict it sufficiently well for use on MAHQ, but it had essentially nothing in common with the TV series design.

Moving on-
The equipment for the Devilfish's Compac Feedback System is drawn the same when Holland wears it in the movie as it was in the series, but the functioning of the system is completely different from the series. It's really a totally different concept with the same name, and using the same vest and headgear. I don't know HOW one would write this up for the profile, but in the absence of a profile writeup, it should just be listed as a compac feedback system in the equipment section.

Late in the movie, someone referred to this:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/eureka/t ... oster1.jpg
as "a Super Pack". Macross reference though it may be, this is as official as it gets right now :3
Speaking of Macross, there was also a colonization ship named the Megaroad in the movie. Not sure if it's the same ship we saw in ruins as part of the Sage Council's headquarters in the TV series.
I think there were a few new air/space vehicle designs in the movie, but nothing I can definitely pin down (and nothing given a name in dialogue, besides generic references to their use).
Many Izumo-class appeared in the movie, as well as several AFX-class, the Ginga, and the Hakucho. I'm not sure if the Super Izumo design was used.

Based on their use in the movie, this image of the Devilfish's Super Pack:
http://www.recognizer.net/mahq/eureka/t ... oster2.jpg
Should be labelled "air brakes open". That's what they appear to be, and as far as I can tell from the scene it appeared in, that's what they do. The Super Pack is definitely also equipped with "missile x many", but

A recent Bandai solicitation for an action figure cites this color scheme as the "gunyu" ( 軍用 ) - "military use" - version.
