    Jul 22, 2014, 3:54 AM - thinking of getting an iron man suit from full body armors.com need advice #1

    Hi Guys thought i would seek advice from the experts on here

    looking into an iron man suit for a friend of mine he has a budget of about 1300

    he gave me this site and asked me to check it out
    http://buyfullbodyarmors.com/

    whats the durability of these suits has anyone got one made from same material (EVA)
    are they worth the money he is asking , anyone dealt with him before

    would you recommend spending the extra going ABS

    just looking some advice from the ironman experts on here


    thx in advance for your help guys

    I have never heard of this page. If it is just EVA then it is made the same way that a lot of people on this board make their armor.
    So give it a little time and some people with foam armor should show up.

    You may get more responses in the MARVEL costume props section.

    If it is just EVA foam then the price is quite high. The work is very clean but the durability will be less than ABS. If I was going to drop that coin on a finished suit I would get one of Masked Riders suits. They are top notch.

    I'm from the UK and I purchase a suit from these guys for over $3000 in July this year, received it in August, it was an awsome suit, but fitting was a nightmare, and it only lasted one wear, parts fell of, became unstuck and the legs completely split, buy the end of the night i looked like i had been in a real battle, stay well clear, still in the process of doing a code 75 chargeback from my credit card company, which is flying through as the website has no real contact details and the one man band business will soon loss their ability to accept web payments

    You should look into IM Nation's armor. It is EVA, but I have seen one, it was beautiful, and the owner raved about it. He does everything from unpainted to fully articulated. He did an Ultron helmet for me, it is outstanding.

    If you have them saved to your computer, click the portrait icon (insert image), and select them. Or, if you have an image sharing/storing website account like Flickr or Photobucket, you can copy and paste the image URL in these tags: [IMG]insert_url_here[/IMG] and the images will show up bigger on the screen.

    Click the Insert Image icon (the picture of a picture) at the top of the reply box to attach images. Otherwise, upload them to an external site and embed them using the [img] tags

    Wow, beaten by seconds by both another poster and the original questioner

    I have ordered the Mark 43 Suit from Full body armours.com too
    I put the Order in late June when they first started pre orders, I was told it would be here by mid Sept then 25th Sept now they are saying 10th October
    The only thing that concerns me now is that they sent me an update of the suit so far 10 days ago and it is the exact same picture that you have put up Orignl
    Have you had anymore updates from them ?

    Very interested in this site as well and the workmanship. Can't wait for more updates for you guys.

    Did any of you spring for electronic add-ons?

    Awesome. Really want to order a Mk 43 for myself as well, but as we all know, info is frustratingly limited (or outdated).

    I look forward to your impressions. I'm curious to see if they improved their electronics (as they say they have on their order form). Now that it is resin (and more durable), it seems like that was the last issue they needed to address.

    And I found this video of somebody else's suit from buyfullbodyarmors.com. Looks amazing!

    Hi Mike,

    Same for me, ordered on 22July, also had the exact same update photo, very worrying. My date keeps getting pushed back too, keep getting told I have to wait several more days because they are overwhelmed. I ordered most of the add ons except the co2 gas add on. I have found I guy on another forum that has received his but said 2 key parts were the wrong size and he's looking into sending it back for a refund. I have posted a message on his thread, so I'm just waiting for a response, I've asked him what date he ordered.
    PM me if you like, I suppose we're in this together!
