Colorado Man Built $4,000 Iron Man Costume [PHOTO][VIDEO]
Coloradoan Anthony Le liked the Iron Man comics from an early age. Then, once Tony Stark donned the famous Iron Man suit on the silver screen, Le decided to build a suit of his own. He decided to focus on the character of War Machine for this endeavor; and $4,000 later, the result could give the movie version a run for it's money. Talk about dedication!
The costume of War Machine took 1 month to build and was constructed from high-impact urethane that was cut and then riveted together with around 1,500 rivets. The helmet was sculptured from clay and a liquid resin was used to create the final item, with servo motors added to operate the helmets face plate just like the film.
