The HulkBuster costume comes in at 6ft 6ins wide, is 44 inches thick, and takes the creator Thomas DePetrillo 20 minutes to get into. Overall it took 1,600 hours over a period of two years to create, The Mirror reports.

DePetrillo explains the project in a YouTube video:

The project of the hour is a Hulkbuster suit, which is a particular suit of armor that Iron Man wears in the “Avengers 2: Age of Ultron… This is the single largest, most domineering thing I’ve ever done in my life.

He continues:

I do this because I love it. For brief windows of time you get to be the star of the show, and when I go to a place like New York Comic Con, fro a brief window, for just a few days, I get to be a star, too.

Just a taste of the insanity of NYCC. The HulkBuster and Beat Down Boogie made a splash ! With Quin Mae Dolly Fallon Raul Gonzalez Pat Covey and Thomas DePetrillo
