Optimus Prime Cosplay Looks Ready to Roll Out

Optimus Prime got a slightly different look in Transformers 4, and Pablo Bairan built a costume to match it. The robot cosplay is completely mobile and plays sounds. Pablo said he built the armor from “foam assisted rubber,” and you can see what it looks like without the paint and finishing touches in the work in progress photo of Optimus Prime’s feet below. Everything you see there was made from scratch except for the blue slippers.

  1. What exactly is foam assisted rubber?
    It looks amazing as a finished product, and lightweight too.

    It’s rubber that’s been made with a foaming agent. It’s also known as just foam rubber.
