    ChristianE,

    So they are willing to cancel your order and provide you a full refund? Doesn't that make you think like they haven't built your suit yet? I mean to offer to cancel and get a full refund, what would they do with a partially made suit? Parts and labor are expensive and it'll go to waste if your took the full refund? Just a thought.

    I assume they get a few orders and just wait until someone who has the same measurements for those particular suit parts orders another suit.

    Yes, me too, I ordered on July 22nd. I have been worried that it's a scam, but I have found a handful of people that have had a suit from them, so I guess we've just had bad luck. By the looks of things, it's the suits with more electrical add ons that's had the delays. We're all keeping each other posted on any updates.

    Determinazn,

    Yes I did think it would be a bit of a waste, but I agree with haljordan, they can probably mix and match parts for other orders.

    Morning, I got pushed back yesterday till November 12th. Seems they are waiting for electronics to come in.
    I asked them what electronics were missing because if the Arc Reactor, Helmet & Hands work, then I want them to ship the suit ASAP.
    We have like four or five of us here that have placed orders for this product, yet all we can find is some dude with a short YouTube video...
    This isn't looking good...

    *UPDATE*
    Waited all day yesterday to hear from "James". I wanted to know the state of the suit, since we are all getting stock photos.
    He pushed back the delivery date again and expressed that they would try their best to get the suit out earlier.
    I've had enough, We are pursuing a full refund from Paypal. Unfortunately, after 47 days of waiting and empty promises, I can no longer afford to wait.
    I have special engagments and Cons where people are expecting "Iron-Man". I was able to find a decent replacement suit.
    I will post photos of that when I recieve it.
    Good luck to everyone... I hope you guys finally get what you paid for.

    Got an update from James


    I am afraid I will have to let you down. We have tried our best but still cannot catch up with your time frame. I am really sorry for the delay. There are some challenges during the production process. And we are working hard and our producing team was working day an night.


    According to our current progress, the earliest shipping date is Novembe 15th. If it is too late and you want to cancel your order, we can send you a full refund. Alternatively, we would like to offer you 200 USD and we will try our best to deliver your suit to you earlier

    It's a sucky situation but at least they seem to be doing their best to compensate you - full refund and no suit or wait and get a discount.
    Which do you think you'll choose?

    Im going to accept the discount and wait fir the suit. I bought this suit back in June with the preorder discounted price of 2,400. If i decide to buy this suit again, it'll be more than what i paid for like around $3,000

    Man, I've been keeping up with this thread since it started and I feel like I'm watching a soap opera or reading a thriller book. All these up's and down's, twists and curves. I hope everybody who's waiting for their suits gets them in even better quality then expected. They really should update their site with the delays they're having so no-one else orders thinking they'll get a suit within the posted time frame or at least put a disclaimer like "DELIVERY DATE SUBJECT TO CHANGE........OFTEN" Good luck to you all.

    Hi guys,

    Yes it looks as we have all missed out on Halloween. I believe that they have bitten a lot more than they can chew. As I have posted previously, I have spoken with a gent that has purchased and received a Mark 4 with Mark 6 chest and is currently using his suit for his business in Australia. There is another thread on here with another buyer who has also purchased and published pics of the Mark 4. As I get updates, I will post to keep you informed. As Chaz said, there are a few of us in touch via email keeping each other informed with our order progress.

    Here is the link to the other thread http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=237151

    Hi Angelhabid,

    You claim this is your 'foam' suit on the posted video, but it clearly says in the description: my ironman suit from buyfullbodyarmors. You also say you sold it a year ago, and the video was posted September this year? There is definitely some confusion and/or misleading going on.

    This is the ebay item number of the armor when i purchased a year ago, its inactive but regardless here it is for your reference 131324713146

    And for the confusion...the answer is Easy, the video you have from this year is a Repost of this video the seller show me when I bought the armor last year. www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaV2Qr3psCE

    Hi guys,
    Just to let all the people waiting for their suits know, I contacted James to tell them I want to put some advertising out for end of November/start of December and wanted to be sure the suit will be here for then, he replied that my suit would arrive by 25th November. So the date has changed again.

    I have bought several suits from this vendor and I am very aware of the trials and tribulations of dealing with these guys. I have purchased the Mark 42 (now listed as obsolete on their website) which I received in July of 2014, the Mark 6 (which I received in December of 2014) and War Machine (which was received in July of 2015).

    Let me say this about these guys: they are awful (underline awful) at customer service and project management. While they appear to have some sort of a production process in place, it is largely ad hoc and based on a mainland China customer service model (over promise, under deliver). Emails are generally ignored and when you do receive a message it usually starts with a "sorry, we are so busy".

    So if you want to see the armours I have, I can be found at Brampton Iron Man on Instagram or Facebook. They are all there. I have also bought armors from other artists and can certainly comment on those as well (e.g. Heartbreaker).

    I will write more on the suits later as I have lots to say on their durability, finish, but mostly electronics. To be blunt, their electronics stink - I have replaced every inch of wire and switch and LEDs in my suits as the company uses very substandard components, switches and connectors. They also use batteries that are relatively unknown in North America (and for good reason).

    If you have specific questions, please ask.

    Yes. He is excellent both in terms of quality of build as well as the electronics. I will warn you though, he is slow and the deadlines will slip from what was promised. It is, however, worth the wait. A much better product.

    Guys..
    Just this morning I received a response from james, again my date was pushed back to the 15th of November. This made the 5th time it was changed. I emailed him back with a very stern message that if he couldn't deliver by November 13th I'm starting the refund process. I've already paid the $3,876.00 and still waiting for delivery. I put my order in July 28th, no more waiting. I was sent the same pictures that some other members posted so now I'm very concerned that I've been scammed. I have a friend who has a mark 6 from them and he said it took him around 4 months for the whole build/delivery process. I email James at least twice a week and I pretty much get no direct answers just "we are working very hard" or "we will try to deliver to you earlier ". I'm pretty much done with the excuses. If anyone has any links to a good builder for these suits please pass it my way.

    Ive been following this post and again like others have said it seems like a soap opera.

    I see they've "offered" refunds and no one has taken them up on it.

    I just hope that they will actually GIVE you the refund because if im not mistaken Paypal will not open a claim over 90days after a payment was made.

    But then again you do have email proof the product was never delivered


    EDIT:

    The time to contest a transaction with Paypal is 180 days firm
