Did any of you see the gigantic Hulkbuster cosplay at New York Comic Con? It has been a couple days since, but I am still amazed by the amount of effort put into this costume! In fact, I am pretty sure that Tony Stark and Stark Industries are going to go after him for making a better Hulkbuster suit than Tony's. Gotta love patent law.

When he's not causing a commotion, he owns a costume company.

Not surprisingly, the costume has taken first prize at conventions around the country. We're guessing he'll be busy this Halloween.
