    This is by far the hardest wiring job I have ever done. This is the new Iron Man 2 Movie 3 3/4" War Machine figure. I wired LEDs in the chest and head. Paint is next!

    Let me know your thoughts!

    Would almost skip the painting since he already looks great with your upgrade.
    But rather see what you got up your sleeve.

    Thanks! I actually think he looks like crap right out of the package, he has SOOOOOOO much detail on the sculpt, but NO paint! He is going to be "battled" up something fierce.

    I replaced the LED in the light up Mark VI armor and it suuuuuuuuucked. There's no room to work in there.

    Still though, great figures.

    Nice! I seriously don't know how you guys can put LED's in these. They are so small.

    That's a pretty sweet War Machine, looks different than the one I got though. Did they release 2 lines? Maybe I need to take another trip to Walmart.....

    Forget that. I don't even think Big Hank can put hand repulsors in these things. They're 3.75" figures.

    He could probably do something with one of the 6" Marvel Select figures, but no way does he make this happen. I'm actually amazed you got something in the head.

    I'd figure you'd have to go with some crazy internal light-piping to make the repulsors light...

    Great job already though! :thumb
