Comic book fans are some of the most die hard fans around, and we have proof of that thanks to the SuperHeroHype forums. Member Masterle247 created a complete War Machine costume from the upcoming Iron Man 2, and it looks pretty awesome. Here are a few pics, but definitely check out the thread for many more.
And here’s some info on the suit (again, more info can be found in the thread):

What do you think of the costume? Also, what’s the best superhero outfit or device you’ve seen someone make? This is definitely on my list of most impressive, especially since it apparently gets him the ladies. I wonder if he’ll wear it to see Iron Man 2 when it comes out May 7th.
