Arc Reactor for Iron Man

Are you ready for the Avengers movie?

Halloween 2008
Michael has been bulking up since then so he can be Captain America instead...
Meet my brother-in-law, Michael Mulligan. He is a professional actor and a pro at making movie props. He made this Arc Reactor and gave it to my husband (who is a big comic book fan) for Christmas back in 2008. HOW COOL IS THIS?

This is a completely handmade custom replica of Iron Man's "arc reactor".

It lights up with LEDs!

Michael also made this custom shadowbox and mounted it inside so it can be displayed in our living room. A cable runs out the back so I can plug it into the wall to turn it on instead of relying on batteries.

It looks amazing, whether it's turned on or off!

Seriously, how's this for a night-light? Every geek needs one!

Random Fact: if you have the Collector's Edition of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, pull out the behind-the-scenes DVD. Michael's in it doing movement acting for undead warriors!
