Superfan Makes Incredible Iron Man Armor From Old Cardboard (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

We've seen cardboard repurposed as gift baskets and chandeliers, but we never imagined it could also be crafted into a life-size suit of Iron Man's armor. And that's exactly what Reddit user royal_dump did.

With over 300 comments on his Reddit post, royal_dump revealed that it takes 1-2 weeks to complete one suit. To accompany the photos, the crafter also posted a YouTube link that gives us a better look at these creations.

DIY marvels like these never fall short of amazing us, which is why we'd even venture to say that Tony Stark himself would be impressed. So if you're feeling up to the challenge of pulling one of your own Iron Man suits together, Instructables has several tutorials that can help you out.
