If you received some money for Christmas, there’s obviously a lot of ways you can choose to spend it, depending on how much Santa left you. You can buy a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One, you can buy a new phone, or you can buy some music. But honestly, who wants those things when you can by a real Iron Man suit? Yes, that’s correct. There is a company out there (appropriately named Iron Man Factory) that specializes in making human Iron Man suits. And don’t confuse yourself and think these are just knock-off leftover Halloween costumes. These bad boys are Hollywood ready and would cause anyone to turn their head whenever and wherever you decided to make an entrance.
Could That Be You?
The suits will weigh 7 pounds and will fit anyone between the heights of 5′ 5″ and 6′ 1″. The suit will be battery operated and will have LED lighting, motors, thrusters, and a mask that can also slide open and shut.
Are you ready for the bad news? Each suit will cost $2,000, so you might as well be named Tony Stark if you’d like to purchase one for yourself. I guess a group of friends could go in on the suit together and share it throughout the week, but that would get inconvenient in a hurry. Oh yeah, the suits also take 8 months to complete.
I have to admit, it would be exciting to own a real life Iron Man suit. You’d be the hit of the Halloween party, you could charge people to take their picture with you, and you could pretty much stop traffic whenever you wanted to. Imagine what would happen if someone created real life costumes for all of the Avengers. I can just see Hulk and Iron Man getting a bite to eat at the local diner.
Since the time this story broke, Marvel has stepped in and is “working on licensing” with Iron Man Factory.
