This Iron Man Case Is Not Made By Tony Stark, But It's Still Cooler Than You

You know who's cool? Tony Stark is cool. He's so cool he doesn't have to give a damn about things like "civility" or "gravity" or "playing nicely with the big green monster scientist".

Iron Man is also cool. Mostly because he's Tony Stark in a suit of badassery. This PC may not be able to fly around the world saving the day, but it does have replica missile launchers.

Unfortunately, despite the stunningly detailed replica arc reactor, it still needs a traditional power supply in order to run. And other bits, too, likely manufactured by the likes of AMD or Intel, and not by Stark Industries. No matter what the labels on and in the case tell you.

PC part manufacturer Thermaltake sponsored the build, to tie in with last month's The Avengers. Designer Ron Christanson did the rest, painstakingly making every part as faithful not only to the look of Iron Man as he could, but to the spirit. The interior even features a battered nod to Captain America's iconic shield, because "In both Iron Man movies, Marvel masks a reference to Captain America, the moments are subtle and you can see in the above pic the nod to Captain America. I decided to make my own subtle hint into this mod."

    Cooler than YOU maybe.

    they shouldn't be able to develop that kind of tech yet not untill about 10 yers

    Was it made in a cave? With a box of scraps?

      I came here JUST to look for this comment.
      Well done :D

    Am I the only one that things it looks kinda... terrible?

      Yeah I kind of agree. Could have been a touch more subtle and I'd be raving about how awesome it looks.

      It's cool but it probably would have been better to design it to match the Iron Man suit rather than looking like Tony Stark needed a case and had an old Iron Man suit he wasn't using anymore laying around.

    it doesnt look very practical

    would have been better to make a bust with a head, and then have all the parts in the bust area, with HDDs in the head?

    They should have just made one that had the style of the brief case suit from Iron Man 2.
