Picture of Megaman is back!
My son finally made his choice for a halloween costume this year. It was a close battle between Megaman and Sonic! Megaman won after showing him my collection of vintage games. Cameron is a avid video gamer and a lego fanatic! Once the suit was completed, it was hard to not feel like a kid again! Enjoy the pictures of our Megacreation! The suit took an entire 50 to 60 hrs of work, not including the countless hours or research. The helmet and the blaster were the tricky parts. Against all odds the suit came together beautifully. Constructed of mostly household products and some lucky toys, megaman is green friendly!
The helmet houses 2 L.E.D. push lights, that can be turned on and off easily! The body suit is made of breathable swimwear material that stretches and contorts to his body! The blaster was made from waterjug and foam. TheMegablaster used has 2 spining cores, tons of L.E.D.s and even makes lots sounds! The boots were made from yoga mats and the connected with hardware. Take a look and enjoy!!
