I too am wondering how much you might sell this for
Does anybody know where i can get stencils for the Iron Man Costume? I've made attempts to PM so people but they've yet to PM back. It's my first armor and i want to make it awesome!!
oh yeah, go see Hulk!
Nice! Whats it made of? Also what kind of poster board did you use? I still cant believe its just board.
nice work Anthony! Just wanted to let you know I'm work on a CG/2d animated Iron Man+war machine short movie. Here is my latest work on my suit. I'm working on the arms. I have a question. What paint did you use to waterproof your suit???/
Hey everyone... I was checking out the site and ran across this thread... I must say.. great work guys!!!
I have a little info that might help you all out on the repulsers and the chest piece.
I made this up just for shoots and giggles from some spare lights...
Its ultra thin and mega bright
The lights are LED fixture Lights from Ikea..
they are 12 volt.. so i just shortened the wire.. and made a simple power pack with a 12 volt mini battery from a car alarm clicker, a radio shack switch and some electrical tape. Then I sewed it to a glove ( the bezel separates off of the light )and I run the wire over my hand and between my fingers and strap it all on with the switch/power pack at the base of my hand on the back. It allows me to turn the light on and off with only a flick of the wrist.
sweet!!!! My original replusors were like yours, but I felt they were to big and I couldn't close my hand. so I took a tap-lite apart with 3 lights and put it into a plastic bottle and ran the wires in much the csame way as yours. I love your ideal about the flick of the wrist to activate the light...vewry cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
yes they are a bit large in the palm as far as the diameter is concerned.. but they are nowhere near as thick as a tap light. I like them because they are the right size or so... I want to incorporate them into the glove more.. like sewn in so that it is more flush with the surface.
the best one I have ever seen will debut at Dragon*Con this year... its vacformed, and looks dead on to the movie suit. the freaking arm even opens and the rocket launcher comes up. absolutely nuts.
he's only posting progress in one place, so I dont wanna cross post it with out his permission, but if you are a member of the colonial fleet, its on their boards. but I cant wait to see that bad boy in person!

The voice box, hidden speakers + mp3. Damn I have to say you did a great job on your suit!!!!!
oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo... that is so tight!!!!!!!!!
The_batman you have any update pics? im curious on how its comming out.
none latley... I'm having trouble with the shape of the chest piece...
Drool, drool, drool.
Any chance we will get a pattern to download?
I've been following this thread now for a little while and I must say I'm really impressed by the creativity and skill you all have. MASTERLE247 I was curious if you have any shots of your helmet in the works...and also of the lifting face conversion. I'm also using the child mask from walmart to make a full scale helmet and would love to see your process. thanks much
Sorry ALL! I feel like an *** for not posting in here so long, when starting this project I saw things people started working on for Iron Man armors (well before the movie) and then just disappeared mid-work without any updates.
Main reason I haven't posted here is because I don't really have anything new to post about. A number of things have kept me from doing work on the suit, mainly Real Life issues, other projects and hobbies, a little bit of being bummed trying to work out flexing/bending/rotating joints for things like elbows, knees, thighs, etc. Some things were definately easier then I had expected, the chest piece came out much quicker and easier then I had expected. Other things, like the aforementioned joints, and mask, and a glove easily "useable" that still looks good and professional have been much harder than expected. The one glove I did make works pretty well, and is pretty "useable", but it's hard to hold a beer mug snugly with the glove (figured this out on halloween ).
Anyways, I'd love to get back into working on this and maybe even see it to completion (still got tons of Sintra sittin around my room, all the bits n pieces are startin to get in the way!), and if i do start work again, you all will be the first to know about it! Thanks for all the support and the views, I was worried when first starting here, that I would get a buncha "you aren't making something Star Wars, you suck! Go away!" hehe.
Here's to hoping I get the will and the interest to start this project up again and finish it, in one form or another.
Wow I haven't been on this site in ages and now I see a few people working on this suit. Crazy progress you all have made on this. Inspiring to say the least. I just started working on my War Machine progress, what little there is, use pepakura method.
the_batman - I like the idea you have with the arms and adding a joint piece there. Nice touch!
Masterle247 - Got any more progress? I'm on your myspace friends list so I can keep up if you blog there. Great work as always.
Elepski - I'm liking the idea with the IKEA lights. Not to begrudge anyone one who wants to DIY their own, but sometimes grabbing a premade object like this works just as well.
Keep up the good work everyone.
