Back Story

The first Iron Man film is my favorite. From the quirky, boisterous, billionaire Tony Stark to the laid back, smart, and beautiful Pepper Potts, this was the movie that launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the stratosphere. But Tony is just a man, his suit makes him Iron Man.

There have been many iterations of the Iron Man superhero suits, but the Mark III is one of my favorites. It is the version that solves the icing issue and improves the weapon loadouts. And now thanks to Fanhome/DeAgostini, we can build our own large scale replica of it. I even decided to use purple as my accent color here to give thanks to Fanhome!

I have watched others in Europe building this armor for some time now, but finally I am able to get it forwarded to me from the UK. I am hoping this is a great build and if you want one of your own, head on over to the Fanhome ordering page!
