6" Iron Man 2 Mark VI & War Machine Figures With Light-Up Features By Jin Saotome

Marvel: Jay Cochran - 2010.05.09
This week's TNI Cool Custom, are of a 6" Iron Man 2 Mark VI and War Machine figures with real light-up features by Jin Saotome.

Here is how Jin describes the making of these figures:

"This Mark VI Iron Man custom was made by taking the Walmart exclusive 6" Iron Man 2 movie figure, cracking it open, and installing LED's. That may sound simple but in reality it was a huge undertaking. The eyes had to be hollowed out and acrylic martini stirrers were sanded down/shaped to become light-piping eyes. Then the center of the chest was drilled and the inside body hollowed out while allowing the original articulation to exist. A few quick articulation mods and a new paint job later and this sucker lights up like the 1/6th scale Hot Toys version!

This light-up War Machine was made using the Walmart exclusive 6" Iron Man 2 Movie figure. He was cracked open, his body cavity hollowed out, head hollowed out and acrylic eye slits (carved from martini stirrers) glued in, and an entire LED system integrated. Check out my Iron Man mark VI page for the work in progress shots of what it looks like inside one of these guys. It wasn't easy! Additional lettering was added to the torso and the figure was repainted with scuffs and scrapes to match the movie version. Now he lights up with bright red eyes/chest just like the larger 1/6th scale Hot Toys version! "
