Yet another Iron Man suit build. Still completely awesome. - This 8-Bit Life
The Internet seems awash with amazing amateur prop modelers these days. It’s almost daily that we see some fictional character’s iconic weapon or costume brought to life by a dedicated fan. I’m sure that we’ve all seen quite a few Iron Man costumes over the years now so why is this one special among the multitude? Well the technical wizard of XRobots, James Bruton, has of course fashioned himself a breathtaking set of Iron Man armor (from the film series) but one of the most interesting pieces is his Arc Reactor build. Particularly because he built it from easily and cheaply available parts salvaged from dollar store items. Though he doesn’t give an exact cost I am estimating that he couldn’t have spent more than $10 dollars total for the parts. That’s all the more impressive when you see the finished product which looks fantastic.
You can see the finished product as well as a video build log below.
