IRON SPAM - "TALK TO THE REPULSOR HAMS!!!"

    IRON SPAM - EVEN MORE INVINCIBLE!!! (NOW WITH 50% MORE IRON !!!)

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------- -----------------------------------------

    After scratchbuilding Iron Zombie and Iron M & M I was thinking about assorted puns that might be fun to make on Iron Man.

    Tin Cans, Iron Cans...and then, in one swell 'foop' my brain stumbled across a can of Spam.

    The faceplate, arms and legs are made from Supersculpey, and the custom label I whipped up in Photoshop.

    Actually, the label is very elaborate in itself, and I'll post that as well eventually.

    I wanted a kitchen type setting for the background, including some stainless steel, glass and benchtop elements so I could get some nice reflected highlights. It's only lit with natural daylight and the stovehood's built in light.

    I've got a couple of other ideas for this armour that I think will tickle Tony Stark's fancy!

    Okay, this photoset is obviously going to attract a lot of Monty Python comments based on their famous Spam comedy sketch so for the unenlightened here's an explanatory link....

      Lol! Great concept and superb sculpting.
      I imagine that pull tab would be the weak spot in Iron Spam's armor. I wonder what's inside? [mouth beginning to water...] :D

      Ta very much ecpica.

      Ahah! That's his cunning plan! In reality it's just a pull tab that does...nothing, but distract the foe while Iron Spam minces them with his ham-mering mighty metal mitts.
