* The Iron Monger suit in the film stands 10 feet tall and weight approximately 800 pounds.

"I love how the Iron Monger suit echoed the Mark I suit," director Jon Favreau. said. "It felt like a machine and a living character at the same time. To see it built in real life was very helpful. I felt the scale of the thing as I stood before it. It was a very successful design and served as a terrific jumping-off point for the animators at ILM."
