The 25-year-old fitness consultant has been a life-long Iron Man fan, and his first attempt was more of a costume. His second? His second is a $UA4000 suit held together by high-impact urethan and, according to Popular Science, over 1500 rivets and washers. Le sculpted the helmet from clay and then created the finished product from resin.
Le decided to make this suit, the one that Stark’s buddy Jim Rhodes wears in Iron Man 2, because, as he tells PopSci, “it just looks more hardcore”. That it does.
