Our buddies Joystiq have a blurb up about a father-son team that is building a replica of Samus Aran’s Varia Suit from Metroid. Complete with lights and sounds, this is definitely a kick-ass father-son project. The eleven year old boy, Joseph DeRose, plans on wearing the suit for Halloween this year.

They’re also in the midst of building other suit elements, which you can check up on their website, but the coolest part has got to be the arm cannon. Maybe once the suit is done, this kid and Halo Kid can have an intergalactic showdown.

As one commenter says on Joystiq, “I’m not sure whether to be more jealous of the son for having such an excellent dad, or the dad for having such a rad child.”
