The poptab iron man!!!!


New Member
I have embarked on a new project suit, made entirely of POPTABS and other aluminum.. but mostly poptabs!!

Since gathering certain colored ENERGY DRINKS just for the RED and YELLOW poptabs would be crazy and partially deadly, not to mention costly(Priorities). I resorted to buying a powder coat machine and buying poptabs in bulk on Ebay.

I started this in JUNE 2013. I want this suit to be completed in MAY 2014, with a production video up on YouTube by June, and SDCC by July. ((I could not take part in the SDCC Pre-Sale)(I will be relying on them being sold in "The Spring" IF I FAIL, does anyone have strings they can pull to get me in on Friday and Saturday?!))

Does anyone have any idea how I should do the back spine????????? thats kind of where I am stuck. I would like to be able to bend forward and backward.
Have you tried getting on the volunteer list for SDCC ? i read on another forum that volunteers work a 2-3 hour shift then get the rest of the day inside free. worth a try if you cant get a ticket.

90% completed the right leg, now I will skip to the middle so I can connect the middle to the leg, get all that situated, then continue with the Left leg.
