Here's my low-budget Colonial Marines armor and costume. It's mostly foamies.  Mostly.  :)

The pulse rifle in this vid is a slightly modified Nerf Stampede.

I just ordered an airsoft Thompson and a Spas shotgun---planning on making a more accurate pulse rifle.  I'll put up the build vid when I'm done.  :)

Glad you like it.  :)

I try to use readily-available and inexpensive materials so others can duplicate them and maybe add to them and make them better.  I'm trying to encourage others, particularly young people, to make fan films of their own.

You are definitely the Willy Wonka of foamies. Love the way this turned out. The helmet particularly looks fantastic. Will be using your thread for future project reference.

cheers

My mate made his pulse rifle from scrap bits of wood...actually looks really good. He is on the Lair (starbeast62)..I know he posted a pic of it on someones thread.

You should have a look..

Cheers

Ohhh, that looks like a future project . . .   ;)
