    They are extremely heavy. The positive is that they lower my center of gravity. It is a very stable arrangement. I will have thighs of iron by the time the celebration rolls around. The costume has 4 cooling fans and I am making an ice pack vest like the mascot costumes have. I'll be packing 70 pounds minimum. I am really enjoying the strange looks that I am getting from people going down the road.

    I'm actually to the painting stage on parts of it. I'll have some pix in a few days. The hip joint and thighs are giving me fits. I have to be able to raise my leg 18-20 inches to get on the foot platforms.

    BTW that Gonk droid rocks.

    Hey guys! check out this thread for Hapajedi's fan film.

    I still have a ways to go yet. I've only got around $150.00 tied up in it so far.

    I have sandals taped to two concrete blocks that I'm stomping around the yard in to get in shape to wear this.

    The ChuckSpawn cinematography is kinda like Blair Witch or Cloverfield. :)

    I can see down the street well enough. Because of the control panel, I cannot see anything closer than 3 feet. I can't see my feet at all or look down.

    Great job, man!

    Did folks know that it was a tribute to the Superman vs. Mechanical monster or did they just think it was a super cool robot?
