    hi Scyliz, cheapest place i know and easiest to find EVA foam is Halfords. they do the locking together floor mats and foam rolls. as for your build i googled a mk17 tsugumori as i didnt know what i was lol is it similar to this ?

    if so its a big * costume to you wanna go as light as possible EVA foam is light but that much of it would be a lump to walk around with try looking at transformers builds on here and online to get an idea of materials. good thing i found was there are blueprints for these types of models (if its the right sort) so a lot of hard work is done for ya.....hope it helped in some way.
