    They're an amazing bunch of people, and so are you. It really does make a difference to the sick kids in hospital and their families, gives them a bit of relief. :thumbup:

    The 2018 Starlight Children's Foundation fundraiser at Zing Pop Culture in Tuggeranong, Canberra this weekend - was a huge success with the Iron Man suit! The kids loved it! I think a few adults went a bit nuts too.... :p

    I couldn't have done it without the endless patience and generosity of these two blokes, James and Shane, who do all the electronics, lugging the boxes of equipment in and out of venues, bolting me in and out of the suit and crowd control for me.

    My boy came and visited his dad too!

    This was James' idea in the local cinema foyer.

    To top it all off, the tough little guy, Zeke, whom we visited in hospital some time ago, is doing well now and couldn't wait to come down and pay Iron Man a visit! I was so stoked to see him there and get a photo with him! Awesome kid!

    "The boy and his hero... Iron Man, you really have made a huge impression on Zeke.... As sick as he was (and he was so very sick) in hospital, he still remembers you coming to see him. And I’ll never forget it [​IMG]❤️.

    Thank you Baz and team."

    Zeke's Mum.

    Yours was always worth more, because it was a labour of love

    And it was all so very worth it.

    Every hour that Baz put into that suit means the world to these kids.
    I hope to one day do something with my spare time that's even a fraction as meaningful as this effort.

    Keep it up mate. Bloody legend. :thumbup:

    This thing is so fucking cool. It's also the most iconic of the many suits IMO. Also the voice changer sounds a lot better than the commercially available Iron Man suits.

    OCAU, take another big pat on the back. You guys had so much to do with making this happen.

    Another Iron Man gig for sick kids complete!

    Tonight, we visited Ronald McDonald house at the Canberra Hospital. There weren't many kids, but the few who were there got a surprise! We weren't allowed to take any photos, but hopefully some of the mums and dads might be willing to share some later. Special thanks to Shane and Patrick for being my Iron Man roadies tonight, and Zee from Teetalk for the new Iron Man/Baz Industries T-Shirts.

    Brilliant, I'm sure the images will be printed in all of the kids minds, and their parents, what more could you ask for, just a little bit of sunshine. :thumbup: to you and all your crew, it's a team effort.

    Nothing for Christmas itself, but I have a date with CANTEEN for kids in the new year. More to follow on that.

    Popped up on my subs list again, just in time for the festive season. :thumbup:
    Baz, your dedication to this project (and everything you turn your hand to, actually) continues to be an inspiration.
    I know that many people here feel the same way, even if they don't express it in the kind of dribbling, babbling walls of text which I am prone to...

    Wishing you, your partner, and the little ones all the best of the season.
    I may have mentioned before that I'm not a 'traditionally religious' sort... but God bless you mate, and I mean that most sincerely.
    All the best from Sydney, hope to get down and pay you a visit one of these days (I keep saying it... we'll see :lol:)
