Stealth Armor Iron Man Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:9330  
Name:Stealth Armor Iron Man
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Iron Man
Creator:Chris-Morada  
Date Added:August 18, 2008
Base Figure:Mark III Iron Man
Height:5.50 inches
As part of my Iron Man custom series project I promised my fans that I would include this figure. If you've played the recent IRON MAN movie video game, you will see Tony Stark transform into his stealth mode or you can say stealth amor mode. So for this custom figure I used the Iron Man Mark III 6" action figure as the base figure.

The first thing that I did was crack open this figure and carefully installed one 5mm 16000MCD Red LED inside, one for the chest By the way these LED's that I use are intensly bright, I love it! I also aded a nice little On and Off switch on his back. After installing an O&F switch, I installed an internal battery holder that would hold 3x 364 button cell battery to operate the LED properly. You can easily access the battery by removing the battery cover located on his back.

Another thing I want to point out is his helmet and head. With his helmet I basically took the another Iron Man action figure that came with the detachable helmet and modified it to have a detachable mask, then after doing that I carefully painted his face with different shades of flesh colors to give it that realistic look.

Once all the parts were put together I used little bit of apoxie sculpt to smooth things out and sanded all the joint out to prevent paint rubs. Then again as usual I use Testors Model Master Acrylic paint due to it's bodys' soft plastic parts. I only use high quality paint to prevent paint fades, chipping, cracking, etc...

Hey there! If you click on the link above the photo of Iron Man"Stealth Armor Iron Man Custom Figure by Chris-Morada"
will link you to the actual Figure Realm post of this fig. Anyways if you don't wish not to read the decription under that link I will just tell you that I use variouse types of paint, but the paint I swear by is Testors Model Master Acrylic paint lines because it's durable. Thanks for the complement!
Before I forget I used Clear Blue, Red for top layers and for base I applied Black then silver.
