    Sep 5, 2010, 12:23 AM - Iron Man store-bought costume helmet? #1

    I was doing some searching on ebay and google and came across this costume helmet. Unlike the exagerated ones we've all seen at Walmart designed for kids, this one actually looks like a true representation of the movie helmet.

    Here's the link on toys r us:

    Iron Man 2 Iron Man Helmet - Adult Size - Buyseasons - Toys "R" Us

    And here's a photo of the helmet in question:


    At only $25, it seems like a great alternative to the time-consuming pep...but I'm not sure what material it's made of, how well it fits or any other details.
    I checked a seasonal halloween costume shop, toys'r'us, and walmart tonight, but didnt find it anywhere; I was hoping to hold it in my hands before buying, rather than ordering online.

    Has anybody actually gotten their hands on one yet? I wonder if it's re-paintable, it would probably look really great if you could lay new coats of red and gold with a good clearcoat on, then maybe figure out a way to rig up eye lights.

    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    i have not seen on that looks that nice from there ive just seen the kiddy looking bug eyes thing.

    i would imagine its really cheap thin plastic with elastic bands that hold it around your chin but id for sure make a mold of it.

    for free shipping id take the gamble and if it wasnt good store credit for legos

    Thanks for the pics, Solo. Where'd you find yours?

    I might just have to go ahead and order one. If anything, it would be a nice base to build a stronger layer on top of for repainting.

    Anybody else?

    Dude, I would suggest to reinforce the inside, maybe do some bondo work to get rid of the lines that connect the back and the front, and you have a pretty decent template! add some LED eyes, there you go! Iron man helmet for 30 bucks!!

    I bought that suit as MK VI for a costume party, the mask is pretty decent for the $$ and less than hiring a smelly pre-worn job hehe. Though I ran some coat hanger wire around the bottom edge to hold the shape better. With that mod, it's quite decent.

    Flimsy plastic??? Cast that sucker man. No sense in havin it break because it's not strong enough. Definitely accurate though.

    Oh and has anyone ordered this Arc Reactor from the same site? I considered buying it so if anyone can vouch for how it really looks, that'd be great

    I'm going to go to another seasonal costume store today. Hopefully i'll find the mask and that arc reactor to see how it really looks in person.

    Please do. If it looks good, I'll order it online and be done with it. There, my Arc Reactor. Totally cast in plastic and lighted.

    Oh don't we all just love cheating a costume every now and again?

    No dice today. They had the adult size costume, but no helmet, no adult gloves, and no arc reactor.

    I guess I'll have to try back at toys r us in a few weeks as they get there Halloween merch in. I bought a led taplight from walmart that's bright enough, but the three LEDs are right in the center and the light isn't well diffused across the surface.

    You can go to the customer service desk at your local walgreens and ask them to order one for you through the internet. it will be delivered to the store and they will call you when it comes in. Also ther is no shipping charge.

    SERIOUSLY!? Whoo! I'll have to see if I can do that and order that Arc Reactor and save myself the shipping charge.

    Helmet is OK, I picked up a couple tonight at Party City for $20 each to mess around with. I may customize one to a Mark V. AVOID the arc reactor! Piece of junk, basically a $10 round glowstick.

    So if one is not able to make there own arc reactor should they just stick with that red one that attaches to shirts that came out awhile back. instead of buying that new one.

    Thanks for the heads up. I nearly went with the Arc reactor. Guess I'm gonna have to go back to plan B.
