Marc Derepentigny has created what is possibly the coolest fan-made Transformers costume ever! The 7-foot suit comes complete with servo-actuated claws, moving LED eyes and smoke thrusters.
Our pal Yan of Geeks Are Sexy found out that he lives nearby and went over to interview him:
Marc has been building costumes as far as he can remember, even dating back to his early childhood. It first started with cardboard and hot glue, eventually evolving into styrene plastic and Crazy Glue, which is what the robot is made of. He estimates the time it took him to build it at two years, with around two hours of work per day, and a total cost of about $2000.
