Hello all,

I'm building a 8'9" G1 Transformers Devastator toy rig, based on this:

The proportions are more like this, though the chest wing will be 1.5x its vertical proportion and the legs/stilts 13.5" vs. 15":


This is what I have at this moment, and will be able to build the chest wing & codpiece plus foam forearms + fists in time:

Given the challenge of carving the legs alone, I think I'm hard pressed to have this ready for dawn on Friday/30th..!

Please give your thoughts on a 'simple' plan B that makes use of the skeleton, with or without the existing & expected detail parts. Thus far I have:
- Frankenstein's monster
- Freaky 5-year old's Frankenstein of mixed toy parts. Picture a big Barbie doll's head, Devastator's torso, other parts for the extremeties. Thoughts on simple extremities?
- Combiner teddy bear monster will multiple heads
- (your idea here)

AGH!

Thanks!

I was just thinking about a costume idea, but your need to have an exo skeleton would work perfect. Snowball/Snuffles from Rick and Morty. The exo skeleton seems simple enough, and doesn't have to be perfect. I was just thinking of wearing some kind of black morph suit and a stuffed dog with a helmet on the front would be enough for people to recognize

Ok, that is pretty cute! I haven't seen this cartoon before. Thanks!

Another idea that's been thrown at me is the Power Loader Ripley used in Aliens. The only essential addition is the forearm forks & some cables, the former being easy to do with hard foam I already have.
