hello people.
i do not know if this is the right section for this... but i'll post anyway.



Saw this ironman repulsor black 12 inch scale on target for clearance at $15 au bucks each, grabbed one and saw i think the best robert downey jr. face sculpt, but the paint ruined the beautiful headsculpt. i was also impressed with the overall sculpt of the armor, the proportion, it has only 9 points of articulation but one of the best good looking movie ironman figures out there. i think it's close enough to be a statue.

so i had to do what i love to do, modify and put all the details i have to do.



here is what he looks like before the modification.

Well done!

Nice facial textures to, Amazing what painting the head will do for a toy. I really need to try this on Gi Joe Duke one day.

umm i've seen them in person, those hot toys are very detailed, but the price is too "hot" for me.

i'll stick with my target ironman... im happy cause i worked on him and an addition to my artworks.
thanks though. :)

Nice paint job. Painting faces well is a skill I wish I had.

No doubt it's a brilliant job you've done there mate, certainly for about 10% of the cost of hot toys

err, this may sound like a stupid question, but i have the exact same repulsor power iron man as the one you have pictured in the box, and im pretty sure that my one's helmet does not come off to reveal robert downey jr's face.

Are you sure you dont mean Invincible Iron man (http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HMV78435)???

I'm really hoping that i am wrong so that i'll be pleasantly surprised when i get home to forcefully remove his helemt rather than popping off his entire head.... :p

Anyways, great work with the face paint... do you have any future plans to add some articulated joints to the figure? i found it was really crappy for action poses hey.

Wow. That's an incredible likeness (and far better than the 'Hot Toys' one anyway.) Well done!

oops... my bad.
i think i searched for the wrong pic.
yes you are right, it's the invincible ironman with removable mask.
they are practically the same, the difference only is the mask comes off with the other one. sorry to confuse you by uploading the wrong pic. :)

about the articulation, i don't think i can do something about that... like what i said, this toy is close to a statue with 9 points of articulation i think...
ye, the articulation sucks... i agree. this figure is very well sculpted.
but im after the details and the likeness, that's enough for me.
thanks bro! :)

wow facial accuracy has always been a gripe of mine with action figures. They should get you to do faces for all action figures! (though some simply CANNOT be rescued :p)
