Cosplayer Anthony Le Creates a “Real” Iron Man Mark 7 Suit


Never underestimate a fanboy, especially one with a little ingenuity and a whole lot of time on his hands.  At the 2010 Nan Desu Kan (An anime convention in Colorado), cosplayer Anthony Le stole the show by wearing a fully functional (well, not quite) Iron Man Mark 7 suit to the event.  What’s more, he actually made the damn thing from scratch!  It has an arc reactor, repulsors on the palms, and eyelets on the helmet, all of which light up brightly.  The mask even comes down over his face like the top on a convertible.  On the back, flaps raise to reveal jet thrusters.  If this thing could actually take off and fly I wouldn’t be surprised.  Even though it obviously can’t, it’s still pretty amazing.

 

Documentary Review: VH1 Rock Docs: Uprising: Hip Hop and the L.A. Riots (Full Episode Included)


It was the straw that broke the camel’s back.  On the afternoon of April 29th, 1992, the long simmering tensions between the LAPD and the Black residents of Los Angeles finally exploded.  The Acquittal of four Los Angeles police officers in the brutal beating of motorist Rodney King proved to be one slight too many.  That the beating was caught on videotape ultimately didn’t make much difference to the jury.  Even in the face of irrefutable evidence, some people refused to acknowledge the obvious.  The destruction that followed proved shocking to many, despite the many warnings issued by the rap artists of the day.  In the years immediately preceding the riots, they had tried to alert Americans to the coming storm.
