Been working on this awhile. It actually works so i figured i’d share with the group.
Not a great one,but there is a video of it at steel city con on YouTube wiicubefilms channel
Will make a better one before long
Is it all eva foam or plastic bits with foam attached for comfort?
With tax season coming I'm hoping to use some of my rebate to start building armor powered by a gas engine (I have a bit of a record with giant robots). The powercell hatch on the back reminds me quite a bit of an engine flywheel.
Won't be looking nice as this or as easy to get into though :/
MARDUK there is probably going to appear in local parades: I don't yet have a trailer to haul him around since he's over 10ft tall.Hi
It’s probably 75% sintra and 25% eva. Steel frame. Weight is a big issue- i did the bare minimum everywhere for weight and it barely holds together and im still at 70 lbs. still some tinkering to do- may make skins for frame of other armor types like in the game.
Are you looking at low pressure hydraulic with the gas engine? I started looking that way in the beginning but I figured this project had a low chance of success and didn’t want to gamble that nuch cash
I got a bunch of build pics if u interested.
HiNow that, is amazing! Any chance you'll be adding the armor pieces in the future or just keeping it an exo-suit? Also, I see the one video is from Steel City Con, are you local to the Pitt area or just passing by?
Yes, Danse would be a good choice if you don't want to be confined by a helmet all day. I live up in Erie, but I come down to Pitt and Altoona for a couple conventions throughout the year (Tekko and Scifi Valleycon) Hopefully I'll catch up with you at a con and get to see this amazing work of art in person.Hi
Im close to Pittsburgh so i go there regularly. Will be doing youngstown comic con & colossalcon this year as well with it. It will be just a frame this year.
Im giving serious thought about an excavator skin on it next year, or mabey a palladin danse since I don’t really want to wear a helmet.
Are tekko & sci fi valley as big as steel city con? I’ve heard of both but haven’t got to see them yetYes, Danse would be a good choice if you don't want to be confined by a helmet all day.

In comparison to Steel City, Tekko is more cosplay and anime focused with a decent vendors room and a big game room, plus some really good photo spots.Are tekko & sci fi valley as big as steel city con? I’ve heard of both but haven’t got to see them yet
