Steampunk Iron Man Costume is Better Than the Second Movie

by


I really liked the first Iron Man flick. My son was too young to go and see the original in the theater, but he wanted to go see the second flick back at the beginning of the summer. We both walked out feeling that the movie sucked. The thing was nothing more than a setup for spin offs.

Someone has cobbled together a steampunk version of the Iron Man suit for a Marvel costume Contest at Comic Con in New York. The person who built the cool costume actually ended up wining the contest with their cool handy work.

Is it just me or does that arc reactor in the chest look like one of those lights you stick inside your closet? The costume is cool and I wish we had more details on the thing and how it was built. All we really get is this one picture of the thing. That one picture is worth more than the two hours Iron Man 2 stole from my life though.

    The man behind the mask is Matt Silva. The suit actually originates from a short film I did, Heartless The Story of the Tin Man, with a Company called Whitestone Motion Pictures. The Original format was again that of the Tin Man, The Tin Man Suit was Designed by Bill Johnson, then sculpted by he and Matt Silva. After all that the two of them and myself and Johnathon Thorton came in to help mold, cast, and paint the Tin Man. The total time for the build of the Tin Man suit was about 2 weeks with mainly Bill, Johnathon, and Matt working around the clock. The Iron Man you see here is Matt’s modified remake of that same suit. The paint scheme and paint job where all of Matt’s design, and the lower torso and helmet are both heavily remastered versions built off the original. Check out the following people to see their amazing work

    Thanks so much for your support and compliments, The suit still has much room for improvement so keep your eyes peeled for future attempts!

    And now from one of the original creators as posted on Bleeding Cool:

    Just found out that the Tin Man suit was taken and modified into an “Iron Man” suit that won the costume contest at the NY Comic Con by my ex assistant. The suit was changed without my knowledge or permission and I’m royally angered by this action. It’s also sad to see that the only screen used version of the suit that exists, is now a cheapened knock off of a popular character. I don’t get people anymore and it makes me want even more to become more reclusive.

    He doesn’t seem to happy there
