    I gotta say that I thought that this years Megacon looked a little light in the big draw category, With no Kevin Smith and No Kirk or Spock But the big man Stan Lee was there and he was really amazing! I took my "Captive Stark" suit and my Mark IV and had a blast.

    I was honored to win the big raffle this year and got to take home a really beautiful Batsuit from the fine gentlemen at Gotham City F X. It is truly a work of art and I will post pics as soon as possible.

    Fluid and Siq, I cannot tell you what a great time I had being with you at the con. 40k peeps and you guys felt like family. I will be contacting Selman soon to see about any future collaborations! You made Megacon for me and that was before the raffle.

    #1 Yes, I did get to meet Mr. Lee and He autographed my Mark IV. It was an amazing experience. He is not long in the tooth at all and was incredibly generous to me and all who came to see him. If you get the chance to meet him you will see what I mean and when he does pass from this world we will be the poorer for it. His crew was welcoming and even asked me to pose for some pictures with Him. They work so hard and yet still take the time to make us feel special.

    Nice suit Zach! Saw you strutting around in that thing...and kudos on the bat suit, checked that piece out and it is nice!
    I'm terrible on getting pics for myself so I don't have any from Megacon to share yet, but I am sure they will start popping up eventually.

    Here are some of the pics of the amazingness of meeting Stan Lee and some work someone did with a greenscreen.

    Take a good look at the greensreen pic, It is not a double post! See if you can tell where I filled a gap on the suit. I used paint program and just screwed around a bit.

    Stan Lee's co. POW Entertainment contacted me, They would like to do a story on how the suit was made. Stealth, Robo, GlennTech, DungBeetle, Can I give you guys the appropriate credit for the patterns and peps? I couldn't have made the suit without all of your work. I will not mention any of you if you want to stay under the radar but I wanted to get your permission before I plaster your names on Stan's official website.

    I would feel very honored :).

    Good job on your iron man costume Zachary :).

    It is incredibly how fast people adapted this new method and material. I know many used it for Halo and other costumes. One of my first posts of the iron man foam costume I told about a dream of me. A dream of hundreds of foam Iron Man that would replace the stormtroopers. And it became reality.
    Big shoutout to robo and dunglebeatle, and to STEALTH for continuation of hosting the patterns and updating them.

    We're not only, we're a legion.

    from what i hear, stealth is taking a break from the rpf (there was a thread about it in the OT) so you might want to contact him directly.
