Somewhat inspired "The Secret Invasion".
The first step was to sculpture the head using Ave's Apoxie Sculpt. It was a tough process, but after a week's worth of sculpturing, I was able to incorporate the Skrull look with Iron Man. Mission accomplished. As for his helmet, I purchased another twelve inch Iron Man that came with the detachable helmet, modified it in-order for the mask to be detachable. By the way his helmet is removable.
This figure originally came with different set of LED's which needed to be replace in order to stay with the Stealth mode theme. Before painting this figure I opened up the figure, dug trough the electrical system, then replaced the two yellow LED's located on his chest, left palm with these neat red LED's. I also soldered on a small capacitor to prevent the LED's from going out... This also helps the flow of the current flow smooth. He is sound activated, press the button on his chest and he will say cool phrases like; " I am Iron Man", "Repulsor Blast", Target Engaged", Auxiliary Power"!. He also has a firing button located on his right arm which shoots out his power blast from his right and left palms. Launching/Flying sounds is triggered by lifting the figure. This figure is powered by 3X AAA batteries and has a small ON and OFF button located just above the battery door behind his back.
The blue metallic lacquer paint was air brushed on with several coats giving it a nice realistic finish. All of the highlighting details was also accomplished by using an airbrush.
