Velma with an Iron Man Mystery Machine

Well, if this just don’t beat all… an Iron Man Mystery Machine? Amazing! Yes, this is an Iron Man suit styled after the famous van from Scooby Doo. And Velma is on the case!

These two rocked the Wizard World St. Louis. Would be fun to see the whole Scooby gang. So creative, great job!
