    This be the costume I wore to this year's SDCC, I was there on the friday with my friend and fellow TFW board member Seishinkibou who's costumes have been showcased here already.

    First up yes he does change face, sadly I didn't take any pictures of the other faces when I had it all on, tho I've attached a pic of the 3 faces on their own.

    As for construction I made a good deal of this outfit myself, I did all the foam work which makes up the core of it (And big thank's to SK who figured out this method), my mum helped out with covering the foam in material, and my sister made the bases for the masks which I then put all the face details on.

    Also if any of you have seen the pics of me wearing this at comic con, you'll notice a few things weren't sitting right, namely the shoulders and cannons kept flopping about, which couldn't be helped since I had to lug this all over from Australia so I had to make sure everything could fit in the box. These glitched will be fixed for when I wear the outfit again later to the Australian convention Gencon so then I should have better pics of it with all 3 faces!

    Anyways hope you all like it, enjoy!

    thanks, and funny you should say that since when I was standing at the hasbro booth for photos at comic con with Seishinkibou (Bumblebee) we had people coming up and thinking we were statues, then we'd move and scare the hell out of them! XD
