How cool is this fan-made War Machine costume, based on Iron Man comics and Jon Favreau's upcoming Iron Man 2 movie?
So cool that Favreau himself re-tweeted it. (You can compare it to the real one when Iron Man 2 opens on May 7.)
Here's how the fan, who calls himself Masterle247, describes the suit he made:
The reason why my armor look the way it does. The reason being is that i used Phil Saunders War machine concept and balanced some of the New IronMan 2 Armor design in to the concept, hench forth a hybrid War Machine Armor. I seen the leaked Ironman 2 from Comic-Con San Deigeo 2009 and most of the design i did fall REALLY close to the War machine armor. so im really excited Hope you enjoy my journey of creating the armor
