Amazing Drive Suits Robot Costumes That Transform and Roll Out
By Tripredacus on Thursday, November 15, 2012
The Transformers costume scene will never be the same after Drew Beaumier gets his debut. He has been creating life-size Transformers-inspired costumes known as Drive Suits for many years now with some designs that are more than meets the eye. Incorporating transformable outfits, Drew's costumes can transform and roll out with special motorized “drive boots” that allow the person to ride in the vehicle mode position. Drive Suits have been made for different model cars and motorcycles and are available for order now. See more on the amazing Drive Suits below.

Currently Drive Suits are made by hand from gently used and recycled children's toys and sporting gear. The materials are purchased at retail cost and take about a 50 hour work week to fabricate and assemble. Drive Suits are mostly made to order and can be created and shipped within a week. A complete Drive Suit, including vehicle body, helmet, motor-equipped drive boots, battery belt and charger will run you about US$1,800 plus shipping.
