Long Overdue Update

Okay, I know I haven't updated in awhile... Here, at least. I've been keeping a steady stream of photos going on my facebook album though....

-Torso: Done
-Mask: Done, except for the insignia. I went with a half-mask, since I was having overheating problems and breathing difficulties with the full mask. Thankfully, my features are long enough that I can make this work with paint and the half-mask.
-Forearms: Done
-Lower legs: 95% done, just need the tires
-Shoulder pads from hell: NEED TO BE BUILT

0% completion. Going to finish construction on everything before I begin covering everything with the outer coverings.

0%. I need to buy a toy revolver (orange tip, yo!) and I need to figure out what I'll be building the badge out of. I already know how I'm going to rig it so I can pull it out of the gap in the chest armor (fishing line), so it's just a matter of actually building it.

For Anime Central next year, I will be re-making the lightbars on the head and back so I can rig them to light up. I will also be adding cooling fans and figuring out how I'm going to rig a water system in as well, since I know I'll have difficulties with drinking from water fountains (the torso is one piece, so I won't be able to bend at the waist, or at the hips).
