    Merch store? Profits to charity? If you're too busy to admin it, I'm pretty sure you could find a few volunteers fairly easily...
    I would straight-up drop $100 right now on Baz Industries t-shirts for myself and as gifts. Pretty sure others might just feel the same way....
    Pleeeeeeeezzzzzz???!! :)

    EDIT: Obviously they couldn't be "Iron Man" shirts in any way shape or form, but I would love to be out repping the Baz Industries crew in some small way. :thumbup:

    Thanks mate. More of the kindness I have come to know and love from OCAU members.

    Because of copyright and IP matters, I have moved away from Baz Industries Stark knock-off and the arc reactor as a symbol of my escapades. You might have noticed the new Builds By Baz logo that PunXor designed for me. If I was ever in the position to throw money on print runs of apparell, I would be going with the T-Shirts/Hoodies of that.

    Right now, I am spending all my money on the Viper.

    Cheers,

    Baz.

    I missed PunXor's BBB logo concept, love it.
    That reminds me, should go and check your channel re. the Viper build, last I checked you were still getting the cockpit instrument displays/LCDs finished :O

    What a great cause, awesome work Baz!

    You know what would be an amazing photo? Iron Man sitting in the cockpit of the Viper... wielding a couple of Baz knives :lol:

    Brilliant, hope it's a huge success. Wish we were closer, we'd definitely be there if we were.

    Best of luck for the appearance Baz. I'm sure the kids will be thrilled and amazed as always. :thumbup:
    So much respect for you keeping this going mate. I'm sure it's neither easy or cheap, but it's a great thing you're doing.

    Awesome idea for a promo shot, but I think the whole "bending at the waist" thing may present a few problems. :lol:

    Gearing up for Sunday at EPIC! 12 Noon until 3pm.

    Checking the suit, making adjustments. Charging batteries and systems checks. Washing the stinky sweaty undersuit!

    I've been on a crash diet for the last week and lost 3 kg. Every 100 grams I lose makes the suit more comfortable. Haircut done, to fit my rude lookin' melon into the helmet and shaving the man-beard off tonight. A new Baz for a few days.

    New stickers thanks to Ken Byrnes! @Zenmodz They look fab mate!

    Baz.

    Today's Cancer Convoy was just freakin' AMAZING! Hundreds of trucks and motorcycles honking their horns right across the district to raise money for a great cause.

    My crew and I had difficulty getting into the showgrounds in Canberra, even as we were part of the organised displays, but the police turned us around a couple of times, so in the end we joined the convoy to make it to the gate we needed.

    Once inside, we set up our dressing studio and my two team roadies, James and Peter, got out the rattle guns and bolted me into the suit.

    We got absolutely MOBBED all afternoon. Kids and adults alike, lining up, high fives and fist bumps, getting photos with Iron Man. Bands were playing Johnny Diesel bashed out a few tunes and lots of other entertainment, food and markets.

    Big day. I'm stuffed.

    Baz.

    My two roadies, James and Peter. James is responsible for all the electronics wiring and coding in the suit, while Peter has been my IT rock for years, hosting my builds website and solving a myriad of challenges for me when I break the internet.

    What a brilliant effort by all. Hopefully it goes a good way to help and hopefully they all had a great day knowing so many great people were supporting them.
