I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive Hulkbuster (pictured above) to convert into a Starship Troopers-esque Marauder Suit...

@LemonJello - yeah, that would be an excellent candidate to use for a Starship Trooper armor suit.

Rocketeer, anyone?

Would make some good nose art on a sci-fi vessel, too.

I'm old enough to remember the old Republic serials that inspired Rocketeer, like King of the Rocketmen.  These last posted illustrations are far more attractive than those characters ;).
