i first started with the helmet. painted it silver and started adding lights.some from dollar store but then more 12 v lights for which i had to power it with motorcycle battery's. i then needed to build the feet to put the battery's in there and made them 10 inches higher.

now i started on the body. got some cardboard boxes and fabricated a body structure and covered it with chrome Bristol board. then i installed a portable dvd player and lights from cars and dollar store.

the arms believe it or not are made from aluminum drive shafts. a poor choice now that i have worn it for a while. i probably would make it out of something lighter next time. along with all the lights and wiring each arm weighs 10 pounds. but i sure works well
