The Iron Man Mark VII Armor is instantly recognizable. With a good contrast between red and gold this armor is one of the popular. Flickr user Mmccoey has designed a fully posable figure of Iron Man with Lego. There are over 50 points of articulation, if you count all the movable pieces of armor and the individual fingers. The size of this figure and all of its features match up with most of the non-Lego action figures. This thing has missile launchers, wrist mounted lasers, anti-personnel missiles, air-to-ground missiles, flares, and propulsion jets. This figure also features 6 yellow Lego light bricks (in the photos here they have been manipulated in Photoshop to be blue). Whew!
Mmccooey and GlenBricker have also teamed up to propose a Lego CUUSOO project for the Mark VII Armor. Make sure to check it out for more details. — http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/32157

An Iron Man Thanksgiving.
The Iron Man Arc Reactor is one amazing prop. The design is instantly recognizable and just plain cool. In the recent films, Iron Man uses the Arc Reactor to keep shrapnel from entering his heart. It is essentially a fusion power supply that has the ability to power the Iron Man suit. It looks hi-tech yet can easily be replicated using everyday objects. This Lego Arc Reactor is simply amazing.
Mr.Attacki has proposed a Lego CUUSOO project based on the Arc Reactor. The whole thing can be built with about 350 Lego pieces, and can be wired with LED lights. The details of this build are beautiful. The design is extremely accurate, and although appearing like a simple build, a lot of advanced techniques are used.
The good news is that Mr.Attacki has included a set of photo based instructions. If only every Lego CUUSOO project would go this far. At least if it never gets considered, fans can attempt to put it together themselves.
The whole project is made even more awesome with the inclusion of some LED lighting. This Arc Reactor look great in a darkened room. You can almost forget that the whole thing is made out of Lego.

Surprisingly it is tough finding custom builds based on Iron Man 2. The recent Iron Man 3 and the original Iron Man get all the attention. Although some amazing work has come out of Iron Man 2. For instance, this custom Whiplash minifig. What really sets this minifigure apart is the custom lighting. Here “EL Wire” (Electroluminescent Wire) has been integrated into the figure, creating an amazing effect for the whips, Arc Reactor and backpack. Anton Vanko certainly looks ready to take on Lego Iron Man.
This custom Whiplash is the work of Dawn of the Brick, and can be viewed on Flickr:
With new Lego sets and a new film less than a month away renewed interest in Iron Man is hitting a fevered peak.
Iron Man’s Hall of Armor is one of those quintessential comic book settings. Right up with the Bat Cave, the Baxter Building, and the X–Mansion, the Hall of Armor is a perfect base for our favorite Iron Man.
Jared Chan of Flickr has created a definitive version of the Hall of Armor. Some of the details, such as, the glowing blue lighting, and the Mark 1 suit help what could be a boring build stand out. The success of this MOC has sparked the imagination of many a Lego fan and has even landed it a Cuusoo page.
