This project has ALWAYS been on my mind since I saw the two Avengers line Stark Tech Assault Armors on the shelves...Unfortunately, they weren't that impressive enough to me to make me want to shell out what they were asking for at retail. Fast forward a year or so later, I catch it on clearance from an outlet store, and here we have the result. The toy always seemed to me, like it was some sort of Avengers Movie version of the classic Mandroid armor system. Out of the two (Iron Man or Cap) I used the Captain America version of the armor as the Iron Man is used in my collection display as the Hulkbuster Armor. In addition to the crazy amount of paint apps on this, I modded the chest using an armor chest piece from an unknown toy. I also added the bandolier for the figure's shoulder cannon, and added many decals from various GI Joe decal sheets. The armor fits my Agent Sharon Carter custom on the inside.

I alkways wondered if someone was gonna use those toys to make customs out of. Now I see how cool that thing can be. It's really great work. Your paint apps are awesome.

Actually went out and found ONE of these Stark Armor figures between Ross' and TJ Maxx's yesterday after being inspired by your AWESOME work!Thought I'd ask if you could tell me what type of figure the modded chest piece is from as well as what you used for the forearm guards?I'm sure mine won't compare to yours,but I have to give it a shot!

I pulled it out of my "odds and ends" fodder bin, so I'm unclear on the exact line. But it looked like one of those dollar store ninja figures with the cheesy armor gimmick that snaps onto the front of the figure...hope that helps!

You won! I don't know if this was a contest or not but you won!!

Haha! Thanks! Since there was no contest, let's call it a No-Prize! Does Marvel even give those out, anymore?
