Xing Yile, a 26-year-old art teacher in China, is clearly a bigger Avengers fan than you are because he went through the trouble to make a life-size Hulkbuster suit.

It took he and assistant two months to build this 3.4-meter, half ton behemoth and he even build a downsized Iron Man as a companion piece.

He’s my new hero.

It’s about time this product came into my life. The outside of this Captain America Shield Backpack is made of hard plastic so it’s sturdy and durable for your crazy adventures. On the inside, there’s tons of room to store your costume supplies with a large main pocket, two accessory pockets, and a padded laptop/tablet pocket.

“And to make sure your Avengers: Age of Ultron Captain America Shield Backpack is comfy on your back for long missions, we’ve made it all nice and padded. But even the padding has been geeked out a bit, as it looks just like Captain America’s uniform front! The Avengers: Age of Ultron Captain America Shield Backpack – Stark Industries tested; Captain America approved!”

The fantastic Hero Complex Props sole purpose is to help cosplayers improve their costume with accessories using the technology of 3D printing. This impressive Ultron helmet was pulled off by group effort, starting with a 17-year old designer.

Jacob Morin created the helmet using the program Blender then passed off the design to the founder of Hero Complex Props, Michael Ruddy. Using his gMax 1.5 XT 3D printer from gCreate, Ruddy printed the helmet in four pieces. The jaw printed in 13 hours, the ears in 10, while the face and top portion of the helmet required 30 hours each. Although this was a terribly long printing process, breaking it down this way ensured the structure would have the stability and support it needed.

The pieces were then delivered to Sean Shaw of Shawshank Cosplay Props for the finishing touches and to create a mold. Shawn glued the pieces together, sanded and polished it with XTC-3D’s Smooth On epoxy. Then the helmet was taken apart in order to create a silicone mold. After the mold was created, the newly made pieces were assembled, spray painted, and outfitted with glowing red LEDs.

For the premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron in Thailand, this cosplay group went all out. Partnering with Walt Disney Studios (Thailand), Village’s Hope created these magnificent Ultrons out of EVA foam, PVC leather, and LED lights. Yes that’s right, almost every piece of armor that looks like shiny metal is made of foam.

Mind. Blown.

It’s Iron Man and Captain America rolled into one amazing design – like Iron Captain, or America Man..okay I’ll stop.

Concept artist Abraão Segundo created this awesome digital illustration mash-up and calls it “Captain Iron.” Although I don’t think Steve Rodgers needs any extra protection, the suit is still super badass.
