Here is my Iron Monger custom. I can't believe this is only my third custom. I've been putting a lot of time into this hobby lately and I have only three to show for it. Some of you guys on here seem to have invested in an custom action figure tree. You create such amazing customs and in such a short amount of time. You have my utmost respect. Anywayz I have always liked the Iron Monger character but the movie figure reminds me of a pokeball with arms and legs. So when I saw Cpt Zero's version I knew I had to give it a shot. Just a few changes. First I used the Iron Monger head for authenticity. I hate that all the HB Iron man customs have that space around his head. So I dremeled the Iron monger head to fit and apoxied smooth. Removed the shoulder pads because I think it interfered with his overall shape. I added vents instead because everyone knows that you have to have vents to release heat if you don't want the rider to roast alive. Added robotic piston arms to his back to open the hatch. Finally sculpted the chest added the clasp to lock hatch into place and used the tutorial to paint him. (Really love that tamiya smoke to give him that brushed metal look.)As ALWAYS appreciate the replies and comments.

Sorry it took so long for me to reply. The Ironman in the background is not a custom it is a resin statue.

Great Job! It looks like you put a lot of time into this custom.
I'm with you man! I've been doing customs as hobby for a couple years now and I'm only on my sixth one.

Woah - what's that bulky-looking Iron man figure in the background (blurred) whose about to punch your Iron Monger?
I don't see him posted in your figures -- can you give me some info about him? It looks like a custom using a Marvel Select Iron man head.
Cheers,
