[Colin Furze] is back at it – once again shrugging off the confines of feasibility and laughing in the face of sanity, all whilst sporting the signature tie with unrivalled style.
Teaming up with [James Bruton], the result of their collective talent this time is a hydraulic hulkbuster suit, at a frankly ridiculous scale. This is the third and final episode of the build process, with the first two covering the legs and body.
To demonstrate the strength of his latest toy, [Colin] tapes himself to the arm of his creation and promptly gets swung into a wall. We still don’t entirely understand how [Colin] survives his antics, but we’re very glad he does.
The steel frame is a masterclass in welding and fabrication, providing support for three hydraulic pumps, the accompanying rams, some seriously hefty bearings (think 1 m diameter), and one Colin. As if a giant moving steel behemoth wasn’t enough, each arm houses a weapon: a flamethrower and a power-fist. All parts are sourced from eBay.
The control electronics and 3D-printed skin are pretty nifty too – you can see [James]’s first video here.
We’re hard pressed to pick our favourite Furze projects, but we have to mention the flamethrower guitar and hoverbike.

I’m jealous of anyone who gets to pay the bills by having this much fun! Saying that I still love this man…
“We still don’t entirely understand how [Colin] survives his antics, but we’re very glad he does.”
It’s the Safety Tie!
Don’t leave home without it!
“3D-printed skin are pretty nifty too”
It looks like Iron Man and Red Power Ranger had a child…
Was about to say the same. Of course it’s the safety tie!
Love to visit his shop while he’s making this stuff, but wouldn’t want to live next door. :P
Very true. My dog would go nuts. It is an impressive build for sure.
It would definitely make a conversation starter standing out in the backyard
3D printed skin? The skin is sheet metal: https://youtu.be/5C30pwpGkRo?t=807
Only some brackets and electronics boxes where 3D printed.
And the helmet.
Slightly surprised colin furze bscly claims the entire build in this 3rd video, in video 1 and 2 it was “im creating a hulkbuster with ebay and james bruton”, in his last video its “i created a hulkbuster with parts from ebay” and somewhere halfway into the video 1 small mention “james made the controller”, even though as far as i could tell he made pmuch all electronics on the thing?
It’s bound to be difficult not to leave out credit for others when you know you could get away with it
Colin has his fan base.
If he isn’t listed first and foremost, the videos won’t be watched.
It’s as simple as that.
I’m still waiting on a working power loader as seen in “Aliens”.
Now he needs to make it walk!
