We joked yesterday about finding the perfect gift for that eccentric billionaire (or millionaire, or really just any "rich" person) in your life, but nothing truly says money to burn like your very own Iron Man suit. The real kicker here is that this Iron Man Mark III suit, made by (wait for it) Iron Man Factory, is actually fully wearable and made to fit anyone as tall as 5' 5" to 6' 1". It also incorporates sensor-controlled motors -- powered by a AAA battery -- to activate the "thrusters" on back and even slide open the helmet so your loved ones can smack that smug Tony Stark-like perma-grin off your face. Oh and did we mention the seven-pound suit, which is made from a carbon fiber polymer and features a cushioned interior, also contains an LED lighting system? Yeah, there's that too, but also no lasers. Sorry, you can't have everything.

There's just one major catch: Iron Man Factory needs to fulfill 5,000 pre-orders of the $2,000 suit before it can even broach the eight months of production time needed to build it with injection molding. For $200 less, you can always snag just the helmet, but if you're going to go all in, what's a few hundred more? Of course, this being an extreme cosplay toy for the 1 percent, Iron Man Factory's offering an expedited option that'll have the suit 3D printed and shipped out in only four months' time -- for $35,000. Folks, that's the real baller option. It's what we imagine Elon Musk shells out when he needs an appropriate Halloween costume.

In the event you need more visual eye candy to help force your wallet (and debt load), Iron Man Factory's put together a sizzle reel for the 3D-printed suit set to none other than Black Sabbath's "Iron Man." You can check it out and sing along after the break.
