If you have dreamed of one day having a real Iron Man style suit to endow you with superhuman strength, the wait may not be too much longer.
You gotta hand it to all those crazy Iron Man fans. It seems like not a week goes by without some crafty fanatic showing some Tony Stark love with a wicked DIY project. Patrick Priebe's hand-worn 1,000 milliwatt laser is no different.
Iron Man 3 won't hit theaters until at least 2013, but that didn't stop Mark Bongo from giving his Xbox 360 slim a red and gold makeover. This mod isn't only a fresh splash of color, it has a glowing Arc Reactor and matching controller.
Before Tony Stark created the Iron Man Mark V Briefcase Armor, the bigger, chunkier and decidedly less sleek Mark I was his pummeling suit. One Chinese guy, Wang Xiao Kang had to have his very own Mark I, so he did what any sensible obsessed fan would do: he made one from scratch.
I'm trying to think of words to describe Ryan Brooks' Iron Man Mark V Briefcase Armor costume, but I can't. Words like "awesome" and "incredible" won't do it justice. As far as I can tell, this is the most realistic Iron Man costume ever created that actually fits into a briefcase as seen in Iron Man 2. Just watch the video to be blown away.
It happens so often in movies and TV you probably don't notice it anymore: The hero needs information, so he stands over the shoulder of the resident geek, who pulls it up on a computer screen. Or someone goes through a security checkpoint. Or a very urgent file transfer takes way longer than it should. Or a young hacker humiliates a government mainframe. And in each of those examples, we'll get a gander at a computer screen.
Remember that badass steampunk Iron Man costume that won an award at the New York ComicCon a few days ago? Well, it turns out that the guy who "made it" really just repainted a costume from a movie. Well, that's disappointing!
This stunning specimen of homemade costuming just won Marvel's costume contest at the New York ComicCon over the weekend. It's a steampunk re-imagining of Iron Man, and boy is it impressive.
Hey kids! if you want to make every other kid's Halloween costume look kind of lame this year, I would suggest this awesome exoskeleton suit from Sakakibara Kikai of Japan.
One of the coolest scenes in Iron Man 2 is when Tony Stark's briefcase pops open and automatically wraps the Iron Man suit around him. Now you can at least pretend that you're about to don your own Iron Man...
