And Now: Iron Man Come to Life

People just can’t seem to get enough of Iron Man these days, and Anthony Le is no exception. Le, age 25, has built an amazingly accurate replica of the War Machine suit using conceptual sketches and his own knack for reverse-engineering. The suit is made of interconnected urethane panels, and features a motorized faceplate with glowing red LED lights for the eyes.

Le, a fitness consultant, also does charity work and will often visit a children’s hospital in full Tony Stark regalia. He even has his own special visitor’s badge, bearing the name “Iron Man!”

Here’s a video of Anthony Le all suited up at a recent costume contest, where he won first prize:
