    This is the second figure that 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. He was then primed with a plastic adhesion promoter then repainted with a series of enamel/lacquer hybrid and automotive urethane paints. He was then coated with an extremely high gloss automotive grade sealer to give him that amazing and deep shine. The really cool part is that he was wired up with 3 total SMD LEDs (2 in the eyes and one in the chest) that are operated by a single switch on his upper back. His battery supply is permanent in his chest but is rated to last 20,000 hours. Several other Iron Man figures will be coming in the next few weeks. Thanks for the look.

    This is a cool custom, but something about the eyes doesn't seem right. The brow is too relaxed, not "angry" enough.
