Hi All… This year I took on the mammoth task of creating my own walking talking ED-209 robot from the Robocop movies.

I constructed the whole thing off a scale drawing I drew up, making the framework from wood and covering in card. Although not identical to the movie version, it is a dead give away.

I added additional lights to the costume to make it seem like it was coming to life when they were turned on. I also had a motorized Gatling gun with flashing LED’s to simulate the gun firing. I used glow sticks to create glow in the dark wiring on joints and exposed areas. They aren’t very visible in the photos but believe me they we’re effective in the dark.

Have a look at my photos and the video I have posted on youtube and let me know what you think
