Hello everyone!
I am an armor modeler and know nothing about fantasy / sci-fi models. I was wondering if anyone makes superhero figures in 1/25th, 1/24th, or 1/35th scale. I'm not sure what the metric equivalent would be but that would suffice, also. I would really like some Iron Man figures (My son wants me to build Tony Stark's work). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There might be some in the 54mm size (about 1/32, I think). You probably will want to check out gaming figures. Dragon makes an Iron Man model kit that I have wanted to get for my son, but can't seem to find, but I believe it is 1/9.

If you take a walk through a Wal-Mart or any department store toy aisle, I bet you'll find that some of the "action" figures produced will be close enough for you for the 1/24th or 1/25th scales. The nice part is that they are usually completely posable.

Testors is making a line of re painted Marvel heros kits for kids, which, I believe are around 1/35 scale. Cheap, around $3-4.00. I saw Ironman at the model section at Wally World yesterday.
Downside is all those poseable joints will have to be glued, filled, sanded and repainted.
