New York Comic Con: Check out the giant Hulkbuster costume

Posted on

There was no raging Hulk to fight this weekend at New York Comic Con, but Tony Stark definitely “called in Veronica.” In one of the most impressive displays of cosplay, a 9.5-foot Hulkbuster hit the floor, with other Avengers in tow.

Created by cosplayer Thomas DePetrillo from Extreme Costumes, the 95 pound outfit — which takes DePetrillo 20 minutes to put on — involved 1,600 hours of work. DePetrillo walked on stilts that were built into the legs of the armor to give him added height, though back-up (and helpful guidance when walking the floor) was provided by his teammates. (For the record, the Hulk kept his anger at bay.)

Avengers: Age of Ultron came out on Blu-ray and DVD earlier this month.
