As part of the latest edition of Comic Book Resources’ The Line It Is Drawn series, they asked their artists to think of some dream teams for superhero titles and they did not disappoint. In fact, this interesting art came out of it.
It may not be the most beautiful or complex costume in the world, but Redditor transcoder’s War Machine suit was made with cutting edge tech. Transcoder used a RepRap i3v 3D printer and about $1,000 (USD) worth of plastic for some of the larger parts – including the guns – while the rest are papercraft.
Have you ever wondered if superheroes were real, what would they do when they weren’t keeping us safe? Tony Stark would chase women and spend money I presume, but what about the others? These LEGO figures by Angus MacLane give us a glimpse into superheroes and other pop culture figures relaxing on their day off.
This Iron Man suit replica was made by two Tony Starks. Greg Hatter built the suit itself, then he asked his friend Jerome Kelty to make some of its parts move. In his very detailed Instructables and Hack A Day posts, Jerome shares how he pulled off the complicated hacks.
Daleks are pretty ominous creatures to begin with, but this cool ultimate Dalek design is kinda terrifying. To be honest, I’m not sure that the Doctor can take on this thing, let alone an army of them.
We’ve featured awesome papercraft Iron Man and War Machine figurines before, but Kai-Xiang Xhong’s creation easily eclipses those two. The 20-year-old papercraft enthusiast made a life-size, wearable and wonderfully made Iron Man suit using nothing but cardboard.
We’re fans of toy modder Chris Hooton aka Sabretooth and have featured a couple of his unique creations. This time he modified a Monster High doll, turning an unholy teenage girl into a female version of Iron Man.
Iron Man 2 may not have been one of the best Marvel movies made, but it had a lot of nice details and eye candy. Which is great for merchandising. Take the scene on the race track where Tony Stark’s armor comes to life from a suitcase.
Etsy jewelry shop ThreeTwelveTrinkets specializes in lockets. As you’d expect the pendants can be used to hold a couple of photographs or other small items. But unlike conventional lockets most of ThreeTwelveTrinkets items have geeky images in front.
A couple of years ago we checked out Ryan Brooks’ replica of Tony Stark’s briefcase suit from Iron Man 2. While the suit did transform and was wearable, it basically looked less like a briefcase and more of a pile of armor squished together.
You may or may not be familiar with the art form called quilling. Quilling is created using strips of paper rolled up or curved to create images. An artist named Alia Syed has taken the art of quilling to a very geeky next level.
We’ve already seen official Iron Man hoodies, but if you want something more unique – to the extent that copies can be described as unique – check out this cotton hoodie made by Catherine Kim aka Iamknight.
This Iron Man balloon armor is perfect. As long as you don’t run into any pin-wielding bad guys or bad guys with flamethrowers. Or if the air pressure around you doesn’t pop your suit. Okay, maybe it’s not that practical, but it is still awesome.
The Custom Saber Shop forum member Eastern57 made a lightsaber that would be at home in Patton Oswalt’s Star Wars universe. It’s a lightsaber decked in Shellhead’s winning crimson and gold colors. But Eastern57 didn’t stop with the paint job.
