    you're right, here at radicons is only one thing the most important: TRANSFORMERS

    cannot wait to see all finished.

    I wonder everytime how much primes and soundwaves as costumes are out there, but no love for rodimus, jazz, or stunticons etc.... :D

    Thanks, everyone.

    Man! If I could somehow hollow out my chest... theoretically, you only need one lung, right?

    Ha ha! You should claim that your right to free expression is being infringed upon... :) 

    To answer your first question, yes! The chest armor is going to have a bit more work done to it. The iconic chest pattern will be applied after I have the armor primed and base coated.

    This particular Rumble will be blue AND purple. My son watches the G1 cartoon almost religiously, and so that serves as the basis for his Transformers comprehension (lol, did I really just say that?). Although now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure he uses the names Rumble and Frenzy interchangeably... which is probably what we all should do, ha!

    Absolutely! For S&G's, here's last year. :)

    I do love Jazz, but Soundwave and his cassettes worked great for us, thematically. Themes are great for family fun. I think next year we may do Thundercats. :)

    That Ravage costume, oh man...I LOVE IT

    I'm a firm believer that as a owner of multiple cats that for lying around all day and essentially eating into my income for 10-15 years they can put up with a few moments of humiliation. LOL

    As his wife I can back him up. Our cats are just grumpy all the time. I think he picked them because they matched his personality. :)  The customs look great. Where is mine?

    I love the whole idea. I think "ravage" looks very cute...but...I would have made cloth "missiles" since your cat is already in "beast mode" great job either way.

    Congrats on building Frenzy, but I could've sworn you were working on a Rumble costume...

    And I'm guessing you'll be Soundwave. Question is, are your cat and son going to fit inside your chest? :lol  j/k Nice work so far. :)

    My son watches the cartoon. Rumble is blue and purple in the cartoon. Good luck trying to tell /him/ differently. I want to see you argue with a 2 year old. :) 

    For the Soundwave costume, it's going to be made out of sweat pants and a matching jacket, just like my son's costume. I was thinking of carrying my cat around inside the jacket and pulling the zipper down some so she could jump out when she wanted to. :D

    Alty,

    Awesome ideas. Very cute all the way my friend. As far as the whole cat wearing cloths thing.... My cat must be the odd one. He loves wearing clothes. Kinda of a cross dresser too. He will climb into laundry clean or dirty and come out wearing one of my wife's nightgowns. Plus he has shirts he will drag out to us letting us know he wants to wear it. He is also a masochist, the more you are rough with him (petting and playing) the louder he purrs . Like i said very odd cat. Big too. Most people thinks he is a small dog when they first see him. LOL. He has to have dog sized shirts, but again he loves them.

    Again the customs rock and I cannot wait to see them finished.

    Helmet?

    You're a brave man - first arguing with a 2-year-old & now trying to slap a helmet on a cat, AFTER she's already good & angry about the rest of the costume...
