Iron Man action figure is steam powered

Michelle Starr is the tiger force at the core of all things. She also writes about cool stuff and apps as CNET Australia's Crave editor. But mostly the tiger force thing.

A 24-inch Iron Man action figure has been modelled after the steampunk aesthetic, giving the futuristic superhero a ye-olden-days treatment.

He's a bit of a Frankenstein's monster, too. Into his construction went ball joints at shoulders, wrists, neck and waist; a shower head; PVC piping; two Unicron figures that were dismembered and refitted; Lego Bionicles; and ... tea-light candles?

He also, magnificently, boasts 54 points of articulation, including neck, waist, and three on each limb and finger; and, in his chest, a light-up coal furnace (not a real one) to power the steam engine that's strapped to his back, concealing two AA batteries that power the LED "coals".

Watch the video below to see Jonathan Kuriscak from Packrat Studios demonstrate his creation, and head over to his website to see more awesomely detailed pictures.
