My six year old son wanted to be Optimus Prime for Halloween. My husband and him decided it must transform or it's not a real transformer  Undecided So here is what they came up with.

Here he is a robot

Here he is a truck

Everything is made with recycled materials, except the paint. Mainly cardboard, paper tape, brass fasteners, an old beat up fireman's hat, boxes from fuses, and some elastic from a few different pairs of pants that have holes and fit no one anymore. He wore a pair of black sweatpants and a red sweatshirt (not really shown). He also wore blue gloves (not shown.)

I hope you all like it as much as he did!

That is RAD! Your son & DH are right, it's would have only been HALF as cool as it is now if would not have transformed. I am so impressed with it.

I'm modularly challenged in thinking.  I would have never figured this one out.  You did a great job!!  Wow... I'm clicking "this rocks."   Wink
