Iron Man War Machine Costume: Holy Smokes!

 |  |  |  |  |  July 7, 2010

Have you got $4,000 and a month to spare? Well if you do, you can do like this guy did, and build your own Iron Man War Machine costume. Yep, this is real-life costume, not a CGI rendering! Amazing, no? We featured Anthony Le’s Iron Man War Machine costume before, but not these amazing pictures or video.

Anthony used thin, high-impact urethane for the armor, and cut the material into plates and joined them using 1,500 rivets and washers. Then, he sculpted a clay helmet mold and poured it from a liquid resin mix.

The costume has got LEDs in the eyes and chest plate. He even included a small servo motor that can open the faceplate automatically, just like in the movies. The gatling gun is built out of pipes and is motorized (although it doesn’t fire projectiles).

Now that’s a great costume, probably one of the best I’ve ever seen!
