“RX-78-2 suit ver 2.0 is pretty much complete. Still needs to have speaker mounted and a few very minor paint touch-ups, then its final test fit.
Changes from ver 1.0 are added shield and beam rifle. The lighted beam saber can be stored in the shield when not in use. An additional beam saber hilt for backpack added for when lighted saber is not in use. New knee and elbow joints. Completely new torso and backpack. New torso has a hinged rear door that locks with clasps and magnets to allow me to put the suit on more easily than the last version. Redesigned hands to allow for greater range of motion. Black craft foam added to back of the foot section to hide my shoes on the stilts. New paint all around with weathering on the backpack and fingers.
See you at Megacon everyone!”
This dude is fucking boss.
