25-year-old Shanghai telecom worker Wang Kang’s Iron Man Mk1 ‘armour’ is actually a 50kg foam costume that took three months and $450 to make.

‘No colleagues knew my mission, and some of them froze there in seeing me approach,’ he said. ‘Some were even screaming for being scared.’  But Wang said the effort had been well worth it – with the costume drawing praise from his bosses and compliments from women. He claimed some had even ‘fallen in love’ with him because of it. ‘They said I am a happy and creative man, and they wanted to know me’.

Ryan Brooks (who calls himself, ahem, ‘The Real Tony Stark’) used 4000+ pieces of Lego Technik and 389 armoured plates to create this nifty Iron Man suit-briefcase.

The cut-scenes of Ryan struggling into his creation are fairly daft compared to the ‘real thing’ in action, but still, nice metal origami.

The lads from Arc Attack use two custom-engineered generators and the principal of the Singing Tesla Coil to create their own cover of Black Sabbath’s Iron Man, complete with twelve-foot electrical arcs.

Guns ‘n’ Roses should try this. Without the suits.
