Base Figure:House of M Iron Man
Height:6.00 inches
With the Iron Man movie coming out this year people have been asking for one. I haven't made an Iron Man since my MvC2 version and figured it was about time. Iron Man here is made from a House Of M Iron Man body, build-a-figure MODOK hands/forearms, and a Thorbuster Iron Man head. Ah, but that can't be the Thorbuster head, it looks nothing like it! But it's true, I chopped off the lower section of the head at the old mouth where the jaw starts now. Then came sanding off the forehead prongs, cutting sections of styrene to make the panels, and sanding the whole thing round. A whole new use for the TB head. I then painted Iron Man completely silver and used Tamiya clear red/yellow along with some blacklinging for certain sections. Some repulsor ports added to his palms and we have a totally new look for an old favorite. His backpack was made from a spare Transformers Jetfire pack. Enjoy!

Great custom as always! Very creative with the TB head, never would have thought his head could turn out to look that good. I used TB's head to create a Crimson Dynamo and I thought that was good, but nothing close to your level of skill. Anyways, thanks for sharing your work. Bladehopper82

Hello,
Outstanding work on Iron Man Jin. I like how you use Silver then top it off with Clear Red I believe.
Do you have any plan on making a war machine? Maybe you can add chrome paint and black metallic paint, that would look good.
Take Care
Bye:-)
