‘Cardboard Tony Stark’ creates full-size Iron Man suit


When 20-year-old Taiwanese artist Xhongkai Xiang boasts, “I am the cardboard Tony Stark,” it’s difficult to argue with him. Sure, Stark is a billionaire playboy who fights evil alongside a gamma-irradiated monster and a god, but Xiang has a full-size Iron Man suit … created entirely out of cardboard.

“Tony Stark’s suit cost almost $1 billion,” he says in the video below. “But mine cost almost zero.”

Xiang spent nearly a year constructing the armor in his free time, “because I have many, many things to do.” Some of those things are likely other amazing cardboard constructions, a dragon, Optimus Prime, and a bird and lizard that look real. He also made an Alien out of drinking straws.
