    What a cool costume. Thanks for sharing.

    The demise of Captain Amazing is almost sad. Almost. If he wasn't such a tool.

    It's all about product placement.

    He's a great parody of superhero cliches. Puts on glasses and no one recognizes him, even though he's a well known lawyer.

    Hahahahaha, excellent! I love that movie as well; I remember watching it when I was a kid. I wonder what the Japanese says on the Pepsi logo...

    By the way, the suit looks great. Is it made from leather? And what about the jets on the back. Vacumetalized plastic? Any ideas?

    Great pictures and thanks for sharing.

    Hey,
    the suit is made from neoprene and the jetpacks are fiberglass which contains connections for a 9 volt battery which light up a couple of globes that make the jetpack look like it works.

    Ha! I think that's a Jiffy Lube patch up on his neck. Did you know Phil Hartman was originally cast as Captain Amazing -

    I love that costume -

    It's chinese and says Pepsi cola (written traditionally, meaning it's read from right to left)

    Fantastic suit, sir!

    One of my favorite under-appreciated movies. My wife still refers to any lumbering POS truck as a Herkimer Battle Jitney

    Awesome suit man, this movie doesn't often get the praise it deserves. Great suit once again.

    Has anyone ever seen a screen-used ball? I don't think I've ever seen existence of the actual prop(s) out there anywhere...

    A co-worker has a bowling ball with a skull in it, but I'm not sure if it's meant to be a replica of this prop, or just a generic 'bowling ball with skull'... But he does know the character... :cool I'll see if I can get a pic, if it's still in his office...

    Edit- Looks like it's the 'Ebonite Skull Ball' commercially available. Not as detailed or exactly the same shape as some screen shots of Garofalo & ball from the film, but not too bad... If you know the film, you'd get it right away. :)

    Love the Captain Amazing costume! Greg Kinnear was awesome. Him and Geoffrey Rush as Casanova Frankenstein were my favorite characters.

    Oh, and Mr. Furious' boss.

    Hi, LOVE the suit and I can see you sold it :(

    However I doubt it would have fitted my 6' 2" frame.

    Can you tell me what the actual main part of the suit is made from? I'm thinking of trying to replicate it, looked at some standard motorbike suits and there's nothing even similar....

    Any help appreciated...

    [EDIT] re-read the thread and saw the relevant info. :) Still bloody jealous.
