One of the coolest jobs I've worked on in the business was this full size Megatron. From belt buckle to the floor he measures 25' tall.
A foam "sock" representing the interior mass was fitted to a steel armature in 3 separate sections. The sculpted bead foam individual robot parts were attached to the sock and the 3 sections were then stacked (pictured).
The foam was hard-coated, sanded and given a base coat of paint.
Here is Megatron on his stage with various techniques used to make him look frozen and ready for camera.
