Back in 2014, Make Magazine paired up with Shawn Thorsson to build one of the coolest large scale props I’ve ever seen. If you’re unfamiliar with Shawn Thorsson, check him out. He does incredible costumes, often involving large armor such as space hulk.
Shawn was planning to build ED-209 from Robocop and Make was there to film the entire build from beginning to end. Along the way, Shawn shares tons of tips and tricks. There is so much to learn here.
TESTED visited that year and did an interview with Shawn.
