Hardsuit check- pass or fail: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/88855
They're supposed to be small powered battlearmour suits, but they don't actually fit a human; if they were real, they would, but I don't know if they fall within the scope of this group.

I was at first inclined to say no, but then I was smacked down my by own "If it resembles Samus Aran..." argument.

I think I'll pass these myself, but it might be better in the future if you leave some part of the wearer exposed, these look a bit robot-y as they are.

MK, a question: I need a porcupine, about the size of a minifig. Do you know any part combinations and techniques that could be helpful for that?

Well, I want to build a zoomer in scale with that Samus I built.

So, I'd say it'll be about as tall as a minifig, with an oval profile when seen from above.

Trouble is, zoomers are covered in spikes.

Here, Samus: http://www.spriters-resource.com/nes/metroid/sheet/1774

Zoomer (on the first row, the spiky thing on the top): http://www.spriters-resource.com/nes/metroid/sheet/1776

Basically, the Zoomer is going to need a shell that looks convincingly spiky, yet also allows a trans 1x1 for an eye. (I'm going more for the Metroid Prime look).
