This awesome Iron Man statue, made by German based Muckle Mannequins, stands at an impressive 83″ tall and weighs 55 pounds. Muckle is no stranger to creating statues based on Marvel characters. In the past they have produced statues of Spider-Man, Hulk and earlier versions of Iron Man based on the movies.
Stephan Lokotsch of Muckle’s U.S. distributors Section 9 Entertainment gives the details about the piece’s creation and what other Avengers statues will be produced.
The pose was dictated to a large degree by the notion that he had to be able to fit into an ensemble of the four Avengers characters we are producing based on the film, i.e. Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and Hulk,” Lokotsch says. “Besides that though, he had to also be a powerful presence by himself, without the other characters surrounding him.”
Iron Man will certainly be the shiniest and most technologically advanced looking one in the group of Avengers, but the creation of his statue followed the same methods as the others.
“The base is made out of fiberglass and painted in a drybrush system, to emulate the look of stone,” describes Lokotsch. “The armor is made from fiberglass and painted with a glitter-enhanced paint–according to Marvel Studios’ Style Guide.”

Lokotsch went on to say that the possibility for other Avengers characters joining Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and Hulk may happen in the future.
“If consumer demand dictates it, we will absolutely delve back into the Avengers and do more, so fan feedback is always welcome and encouraged. Obviously, Nick Fury is also a strong contender for statue treatment, as are [Black Widow, Hawkeye and Agent Coulson]. Not to be vague, but I suppose, only time will tell.”
The Avengers-based Iron Man statue can be purchased from Muckle right now for $4,099.
