This is based on the scene in Avengers when Tony returns to Stark Tower and has his armour removed while walking through the ever changing Annular Gantry system and talking to JARVIS with his earpiece about meeting Pepper Potts for dinner. Since I had built a custom Pepper Potts as Rescue (comic book version but using Gwyneth Paltrow's HS to keep it movie related), I decided it would be apt for her to turn up to meet Tony in her armour that she had been training with. Video below shows the movie scene with the Annular Gantry:



The builds themselves were all heavy mods of existing products, I created my armour removal MKVI from a HC Toys KO that needed to be rebuilt from the inside out with a dremel, hacksaw, files etc.. also needed a new paint job and head. The exposed inner armour layers and removed armour parts were also created by me with various mods to the original parts, he has some scratch built accessories too like the earpiece and tumbler of whisky (not movie accurate but I felt he needed a drink Wink ). The Gantry is solid resin and made by TYS Toys but came with only four non articulated arms and lousy LED lighting, I articulated the four arms then made eight more articulated ones, they are all attached by magnets and interchangeable with each other. I also added all the blue EL-Wire, made trapdoors and a figure stand for the floor then repainted it all black instead of the non movie accurate light grey it was. I built Rescue by doing a bunch of mods to a brilliantly articulated and well made Ultra Man figure (contains die-cast too) by Dimension Studio & Eastern Models, such as changing the feet, hands, pelvic armour and head. I made a custom faceplate for her inspired by the comics and contorted the armoured body's articulation to give her a feminine figure. You can see the build thread in the link below. This photo shoot wasn't easy but I got it done in the end, I had to turn off Tony's Arc Reactor light for many of the pictures as it is just too bright for the camersa to deal with, in real life it looks really sharp depicting all the details of it's design pirat .

This looks amazing! cheers And thanks so much for including the reference video -- very helpful for a someone like me who is not very well-versed in MCU, lol.

Also, I absolutely love how Pepper turned out, and my fangirl self greatly appreciates that you illustrated a 'romantic' moment. :')

SO COOL! thank you for putting it into a sequence for us. Why not do a Iron Heart version? Haha..

This turned out so awesome, Alex. I knew it would. Absolutely incredible build. And the photo-story is epic, as well. Fantastic work all around. This is one for the books the amount of work that went into this -- as all of your builds tend to.

That's awesome!!! Very impressive build, a great rendition of that sequence... insanely cool, thanks for sharing!

I had seen them come into being individually in the build thread, but seeing them presented in this fully finished form was still very impressive. And it was cool to realize how the different pieces came together in the end -- from Pepper to the glass of whiskey. I think it worked out beautifully, which is yet another testament to your vision and skills.

LOL, well I wasn't trying to make it mushy or anything but it is an unusual break from the norm which generally involves my creations killing each other! Wink

Cheers! I'm not into superhero kiddies to be honest mate and an Iron Man suit in pink is not going in my collection! LOL. I do have plenty more Iron Man and War Machine builds lined up though, even another Rescue is possible.

Thanks Mark! I hope you're feeling better. You better like it, you're the one who wanted a picture story(?)  Laughing Loads of swearing went into this photo shoot!  Twisted Evil

Cheers GF! To be honest this is the first time I'd seen it all together (well outside of my mind that is) too! Laughing

Haha. You’re reply to my comment made me laugh. Sorry it caused so much trouble, though. Glad it worked out all the same.

Glad to hear you got a laugh out of it! I need someone pushing me on anyway to get the best out of my work, the good stuff always needs work put into it with added blood, sweat, tears and swearing! Wink

That looks incredible! Easily some of the best work you've done. Of course, you now have the unenviable task of trying to top that. Best of luck! I'm sure whatever you choose next will be another winner.

CHEERS!

Go for it, it'll give me something to drop by for. If I watch the topic I'll still know when you've worked on it.
