Maker Anthony Le is no stranger to making Iron Man armor. He’s made a few versions of Tony Stark’s armor including MKIII, MKVI, and Hulk Buster styles. He’s made a War Machine costume, Pepper Potts’ rescue armor, and more. It’s impressive. One of his coolest armor builds is a mash-up of Tron and Iron Man. Le designed this costume back in 2011. Here’s the concept art:
He wanted to make something different and forge a new path. He based the armor design on a look Stark wore in the comics; it was called the “bleeding edge” model. To craft this striking and creative costume, Le used: “High impact urethane plastic sheets, EL tape, custom 12v Lithium Battery, rivets and washers.”
The light-up components push the armor to the next level. In addition to the materials listed above, Le also used white LEDs to modify the Tron disc to match the Iron Man look.
