Article hasn't been posted 10 minutes and the video is all ready shown to be removed from Youtube over copyright infringement issues with Marvel. Must not have been a video of the 3D printed suit.

If I did I certainly wouldn't bomb it away on an Iron Man suit.

I figured Marvel would drop a bag of legal hammers on these guys at some point... Wonder if they're going to just try to shut them down, or if they'll try to work out licensing and skim a percentage?

If it goes to production, you can count on seeing lots more Iron Man cosplayers at comic conventions and during Halloween... Which, I'm sure, will annoy the crap out of those guys who actually did all the work to build their amazing gear, only to have it fade into a crowd of mass produced versions.

At least Marvel can't say it was their idea if the suit is sold. Which in my opinion is why I think Marvel would rather the suit never makes it to market. Some people would kill anything just because it wasn't their idea or at least credited. I do however hope Marvel is willing to share credit. I'm personally not interested in having the suit, but that doesn't mean I think it should not be allowed.

Superhero aficionados will most certainly appreciate the Mark III’s sensor-controlled motors (powered by one AAA battery) used to activate “thrusters” on the back and slide open the helmet.

One AAA hmm, doesn't sound unlikely AT ALL.
Smells like scam for sure.

There you have it, it's all a scam. Damn but some people are unscrupulous. I don't know why their parents just didn't use a rubber.
