    Looks great! I remember having a Shogun Warrior Mazinga...I think I chopped it up and made a Gene Simmons Shogun Warrior.
    Be careful about how much weight is on you head and neck. Looks wonderful, keep going.

    I started with this part of the project, in order to change activity and see if it was possible.

    This is my sound built, all connected to an Adafruit Audio FX Mini-Sounboard 16 MB. Hope you can read the specs of the amplifier and speakers:

    Well, wires from buttons to ground are not there but I already connected them.

    And I have a question cause I am a total newby in electronics.

    I tested it already:

    As you could hear, I have a few sound effects in the soundboard (steps, laser beams, etc.) and the intro music of the cartoon to liven up the party

    Works nicely loud, but only when I connect the amplifier to the electricity grid with the ac/dc adapter of 12V 5ahm included with it. I tried to activate it with 12V alcaline batteries and it does not sound loud and batteries get consumed in seconds.

    I was wondering, would the amplifier work with something like this?: Will it have enough autonomy to last an hour or so?

    It weights around 1 kg, but I think I can carry it on my backpack frame.

    So please, I need assistance from you guys, the ones knowing electronics and sound systems.

    The lead battery will be supported by the backpack frame.

    As a big sofubi/kaiju/rider fan, this is a beyond cool build. Can't wait to see more!
