“Tony’s helmet had been malfunctioning lately so he brought it out to make some repairs.”
Small Lego vignettes are super popular right now. There is a certain charm about creating a tiny set for your favorite Minifigures. Vlad Hernandez took his recent Lego Iron Man themed StarkLab: Helmet Repair display to another level by adding multiple light sources. There are a total of 4 LEDs embedded in an 8×8 stud space. The most impressive is the customized Tony Stark Minifigure, where the LEDs help show off that embedded Arc Reactor. Iron Man’s helmet and 2 gizmos are also lit up. Now if only someone could take this level of care creating some sort of super Hall of Armor.

The Iron Man Arc Reactor is one amazing prop. The design is instantly recognizable and just plain cool. In the recent films, Iron Man uses the Arc Reactor to keep shrapnel from entering his heart. It is essentially a fusion power supply that has the ability to power the Iron Man suit. It looks hi-tech yet can easily be replicated using everyday objects. This Lego Arc Reactor is simply amazing.
Mr.Attacki has proposed a Lego CUUSOO project based on the Arc Reactor. The whole thing can be built with about 350 Lego pieces, and can be wired with LED lights. The details of this build are beautiful. The design is extremely accurate, and although appearing like a simple build, a lot of advanced techniques are used.
The good news is that Mr.Attacki has included a set of photo based instructions. If only every Lego CUUSOO project would go this far. At least if it never gets considered, fans can attempt to put it together themselves.
The whole project is made even more awesome with the inclusion of some LED lighting. This Arc Reactor look great in a darkened room. You can almost forget that the whole thing is made out of Lego.
