Ok, I'm looking to cosplay as Ed. I'm determined to create my own metal arm. Any idea what type of metal I should use? Has anyone here tried creating an arm?
Also, if I do give up, can anyone tell me the japanese site where I can order one. I recall seeing one.

Ummmm...I've attempted the arm (KEY WORD ATTEMPTED) once. I used craft foam and acrylic paint. It worked rather well until it fell apart since I made the chest piece too small and everything else was connected to that. Fortunatly, I DO know that this material works (others have succeeded, including the Japanese) rather well. I'm attempting it again, this time with a spray-paint primer so the paint doesn't soak in. Zrana~~~ post your guide again? I'm really bad at explaining how the thing fits together.

As for actually making it out of metal, no idea. I don't make sense after 11pm. Whee.
