Amazing Drive Suits Robot Costumes That Transform and Roll Out
Tripredacus - 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.
As Headmaster Don pointed out during a recent RFC Mini-Cast, MMC's Carnifex is a very IDW take on Overlord. If that was putting you off as well, you may be interested in these upgrade kit photos that MMC has just posted! Carnifex Continuum adds a fair number of G1 features back into your third-party unofficial Overlord toy - keep reading for the photos and details.

Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, 3P Loves Springer, and they think you do too! This week on the RFC Mini-cast: John, Don, Mellvarr and Rob Clay discuss: Why does 3P love Springer and not Arcee? Plus we analyze IDW’s impact on Transformers and Revolution’s effectiveness.
Dean Lee on Facebook has a high detail gallery up for the upcoming first product from the Fanshobby group. Arch Enemy is the debut of the Master Builder series, offering a Masterpiece scale take on original Robots in Disguise's Scourge, or Black Convoy for the Car Robots enthusiasts. A solo Car Robots/RID Masterpiece may seem a little odd, but it's hard to deny that the actual product looks super nice and captures the design well. We've mirrored some of the gallery, keep reading to find it below and get a good look at this figure!
Wrapping up our look at ToyCraft's coverage of Ani-Expo HobbyFree we have a catch-all for the remaining third party groups that were covered. It looks like no one had a lot new to show, and most of what did turn up under the other brands was far enough to be in color sample stages. A GCreations Optimus-alike could be seen, X-Transbots' not-Cosmos, plus testshots of their Trailbreaker and Hoist figures, a couple modes of DX9's try at Sixshot, and more things that we've seen to some capacity already. The final round of shots is mirrored below, keep reading to catch up with the rest!
