    Iron Man better than TMP's

    I was looking on youtube for videos of iron man costumes, and came across something that blew my socks off. The quality isn't that great, but once you watch for a little bit, and get past the lights off in the beginning, you'll see what I'm talking about.

    Tell me this isn't awesome.

    I like the look of TMPs costume better, but that guy in the video has some neat effects. I was waiting to see if anyone would build animatronic "flight stabilizers" and that guy did, so kudos to him.


    Looks like that guy did a Ghost Rider costume too....

    He also did wrist activated repulsers, when they were at a certain angle, they would turn on. I was also hoping for motorized helmet faceplate, but he only made one video. When I saw the flight stabilizers I flipped out. It was awesome.

    I agree that I like TMP's better - nicer look, better balance. But this one does have some very, very nice effects.

    cool effects, but the video is dark. I wolud go for looks before function. Kinda like putting a Hyperdyne VortexII and motion control on a Rubies Supreme Vader suit.

    I give the guy props, but I also like the look of TMP's better. There is something about the shoulders on this guy's that I don't like though the moving flight stabilizers are pretty sweet.

    Yea, the shoulders look a little off, but I still like his more than TMP's. I don't know why but I just don't like his..... Maybe it's because I cold never make something like that....

    Re: Iron Man better than TMP's

    Those effects looks really cool.... Whould be cool to add to urs but its not our skills to do. those effects.

    However note to past photos of our Iron Man

    Photo from decaturvader from RPF with 2nd Generation armor.



    I want to point out we are making a totaly new sculpt from scratch. The older versions shown in this clip is shown from the sculpting proccess - 1 generation to 2nd generation armor.

    VIDEO: THE MAKING OF THE TMP IRONMAN ARMOR.
    http://www.motionbox.com/videos/7a9c...layer_&type=hd


    The one we are sculpting looks like this now:


    Note bellow is the 3rd Generation armor and will be the final version. Note the helmet is a Version 8 helmet.


    The bellow is the Version 7 helmet. The new version 8 helmet you se above. Better pics to come later on

    Hey TMP, do you sell your costume just as a single piece (complete) or do you offer parts seperately? If so I would liek to know prices for the parts e.g. helmet with neck-piece etc.

    Maybe you could send me a PM.

    Thanks bro!

    I am sorry we do not offer parts. We worked so hard on the previouse to se it beeing recast shortly after. And at this moment we will not part out anything like the New v8 helmet.

    Re: Iron Man better than TMP's

    Oh thatīs bad.

    I understand your decision because of all those re-casters, itīs just bad for those who canīt efford a full suit and just would like to have the head with neck as a sculpt to stand in the office.

    People who buy the suit could recast too ... you canīt really stop them doing their *** work. As I said, I can understand you to just sell whole suits but itīs not that good for people with tight budget.

    You just leave them out of the chance.

    I am sorry to hear this.

    This way many fans of your amazing work wonīt get the benefit to make business with you.

    Re: Iron Man better than TMP's

    We might make some stuff for display.
    The ideas are:

    • Bust
    • The enite upper bodody with partionally the abominal armor, shoulders and biceps.
    • Then the entire upper body like in Tonys Garrage.
    Note non of these will be wearable.. But as you said nice displays.

    That guys had cool stuff too it. But the look of TMP's is 1000000% better. TMP's IS Iron Man. The other is just a cool costume.

    Because you've worked with cardboard I have a quick question. Can you use resin and fiberglass with it easily? Or will the cardboard warp if you resin it?

    TMP, as I metioned over on the RPF (my username there is CommanderCody) The latest version of your sculpt is incredible work, it really captures the streamlined look of the movie suit, will you not be offering just the helmets now as I seem to remember you offering them before? Keep up the great work!
