Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Iron Man Mark 1 Armor!

Adam digs up an incomplete Iron Man Mark I armor costume out of his shop’s deep storage and gets to work building out this suit and getting wear at a future convention. This replica was nicely sculpted and cast, and is a great base for Adam’s upgrades, including adding a light-up arc reactor and mechanized magneto generator prop in the back of the suit! It’s a lot of fun scratch building and kitbashing of parts to make it look like something Tony Stark would’ve made in the film! (Stick to the end for a bonus mini-build too!)
