  • Transformers Soundwave Costume

    I will preface this, that while these costumes are pretty to look at, they are uncomfortable. The range of motion is limited. For joints that require mobility, I'd likely look into the tubing that dryers use to push out moisture that is flexible. It's not ideal, but will help to make the transitions between joints more flexible and hide what's inside. Kinda like old school robot costumes.Scavengers is the only excavator Transformer I can think of that fits that the bill. I'd use the neon green Gen 1 version. Design the tracks so the top half of the track is the thigh, the bottom half is the shin. He balls up on the ground so they meet up and look like a full set.

    Some of it was cardboard from Home Depot You can see the logo in most of the pics. Some was just boxes I had around the house. White house paint, blue spray paint from the hardware store, etc...

  • It would literally be thousands of steps. Transformer costumes are a special breed of crazy. It's like documenting every step to build a house. You'll be hard pressed to find any Transformer costume that has that much detail on how to construct it. Plus, we want who ever makes it to put their own spin on it.

  • I would say it's a challenging project especially since it's variable based on body type and measurements. I finished mine in 30 days, but those were some long days. Starting the project is probably the most difficult. Once all the things start coming together, it moves quickly. Hope that helps.

    This should be it.
