It is a dream of LEGO Super Heroes fans to collect all the different versions of LEGO Iron Man suits. Five different LEGO Iron Man suits have been released by LEGO already (plus one Toy Fair exclusive), and there is at least one more on the way. You can check out these great instructions from Flickr member CK Tsang (a.k.a. chiukeung) to build your own LEGO Iron Man Mark I suit and LEGO Iron Man Iron Patriot suit.
LEGO Iron Man Mark I Suit Building Instructions: it is actually quite unlikely that LEGO will release an Iron Man Mark I suit, so if you would like to add the Mark I to your collection, this is your chance. CK Tsang was kind enough to share not just the finished design, but step-by-step instructions on how to make your own Iron Man Mark I suit. See below.
Here is a view of the LEGO Iron Man Mark I Suit from different angles, the design taking great advantage of the new LEGO space armor available in the Collectible Minifigure Series. The rest are quite common pieces:

LEGO Iron Man Iron Patriot Instructions: if you would like to make your own LEGO Iron Patriot suit you can follow the instructions below. Please note that making the Iron Patriot will require a bit of painting and decal-ing. For painting you can use hobby-paint used for model-cars and airplanes. If you are in the USA I recommend Testors, a very nice hobby-paint that is cheap and works great for LEGO.
Below are the steps on how to make your own LEGO Iron Patriot suit using some very basic LEGO elements as well as the helmet from the LEGO War Machine suit. (You can click on the image to enlarge.)
As you can see the LEGO Iron Patriot suit will also need some decals for the chest, legs and feet. CK Chang was nice enough to provide these as well. You can download the PDF file here. Please note that download requires that you have a Facebook account and that you “Like” the page. If you don’t have a Facebook account you can download the decals here: DOWNLOAD
And there you have it! Two more suits for your collection! If you don’t yet own a LEGO Iron Man set, I would highly recommend you check out the currently available LEGO Marvel Super Heroes sets at the Online LEGO Shop. The #76006 LEGO Super Heroes Iron Man Sea Port Battle is an especially nice set with two Iron Man suits for only $20!
