Marvel‘s Avengers: Infinity War has its fair share of die-hard fans. But two fans, YouTuber Colin Furze and James Bruton of Xrobots, matched their dedication with a massive amount of engineering talent. Furze and Bruton teamed up with eBay to construct a real-life hydraulic Hulkbuster mech-suit.
The homemade Hulkbuster, which is seen resting humbly in a backyard, stands 3.2 meters (10.5 feet) tall, can seat an adult comfortably and is fully functional via a remote control system. Because the mecha is hydraulic, it’s extremely powerful — as shown in the video when the Hulkbuster completely lifts Furze up with one hand and crushes through an array of items — and has a flamethrower palm that appears to be wildly useful. Furze and Bruton are still working on making the Hulkbuster walk, which has been difficult considering that each steel piece of the robot is extremely heavy.
