No it's not Robert Plant from Led-Zep, although now that I think about it, that should have been his costume. He even had a freakin' Led-Zep shirt on! It's Ed Templeton and Collin Provost, the 1st newest Toy Machine Am. The second newest am is Jordan Taylor. Anyone who wonders about why Ed would put on Collin will have their mind exploded when you see his Emerica part. Trust the Tempster.
