This is my fifth Mega Figure so far, but the first one outside the Star Wars universe!
I was asked to make an Iron Man version and here it is.
To be honest I’m not a Marvel expert and when I started this project I didn’t know that Iron Man had so any different armors. So I need to thank my friend @glenn_tanner55 who helped me to make a proper choice. I wanted to choose one of the most iconic version so I made the Mark III armor, from the first Iron Man movie.
I’ve tried my best to keep the parts cost under control, but unfortunately dark red is not the cheapest colour in the LEGO® catalogue. I wanted this figure to perfectly fit the original LEGO® helmet, so I had to keep metallic gold as one of the main colours, and this is also pretty expensive.
IMPORTANT UPDATE (06/11/2021): some of you reported a lack of friction of part 62712, that sometimes cannot properly sustain the weight of the torso. For that reason, I’ve just uploaded an updated version of this MOC, that includes also a better arm connection to torso.
Now the inventory includes all the parts of the updated model. For those who have already bought the parts with the previous inventory, I’ve also uploaded a SuperIronMan_FIX.zip file, that includes only the new parts needed to update the model.
Changes are at steps 1, 2, 88, 93,94, 169, 174, 175, 271 to 282, 391 to 398, 445 to 452.
