Troy Picou from Grand Rapids First in Grands Rapids, MI brings us this giant Transformer on their stage.
This is a 13′ transformer created for a children’s ministry series called Transformed. It was created out of recycled plastics and took 2 moths to make.
He was created out of recycled plastics. They used juice bottles, laundry detergent bottles, used toner cartridges from their color copier, water guns for the face, and tons of different planters. He had a PVC frame for all his limbs and that connected to a metal frame. They used donated wrecked bumpers from a collision repair shop for the outer car parts. He had LEDs throughout and his head was servo-controlled and looked side to side in a programable loop pattern. It took Troy two months to build with his wife and kids and three friends in their children’s ministry.
The background stuff was their normal stage setup—made from metal conduit and Coroplast. It was lit with tri 9 and 6 intelligent lights.
