    This was originally part of a 6 figure commission over 2 years ago that the original commissioner did not follow through on. He and his counterparts sat on my workbench in varying degrees of completion.... until I started wiring some Transformers Prime figures. I figures I would complete them at the same time.

    This figure was completely disassembled, stripped of all factory paint except the yellow arm striping. He was then primed with a plastic adhesion promoter then repainted with a series of enamel/lacquer hybrid paints. The really cool part is that he was wired up with 5 total SMD LEDs (2 in the eyes, 2 in the hands, and one in the chest) that are operated by a single switch on his upper back. His battery supply is not permanent in his chest but are rated to last 20,000 hours. Several other Iron Man figures will be coming in the next few weeks. Thanks for the look.

    Ironman is my favorite superhero. You have done justice to Warmachine :) 
    I like that you made it RED LED like the poster add. It is a nice homage.
