My IronMan has been getting a lot of play and I think it a "keep until I retire from the hobby" pin in my collection.

I've already LED'd it, any other mod suggestions?

Hooked is making some bumper mods. He also did the figures with lit chest arc reactors and whips.

shaker is needed.
add leds to the chest of the toys. cheap leds for war machine and whiplash can be found at radioshack. frosted flat top led from pinballlife fits perfect in the iron monger. do them yourself and just connect them to the GIs. These are $10 toys with a $3 led. No way would I pay $100 for them as some people sell them for.
I also make custom EL wire whips for mine.

Would love a tutorial on the el wire whips. IM is becoming a keeper for me too. Such fun in such (usually) short games makes it a machine you'll always be challenged by, and therefore want to keep.

No tutorial. Made it up as I went. Used the EL wire and bound it to a copper wire found at a craft store to make it look like the whips in the movie.
Got this kit here. Just order both colors the same. I used blue. Hook it up using a 12V adapter and just cut the ends off and hook it directly to this.

Used shrink tubing to cover EL wire out the back of the figure so it didn't look retarded.

I have a spare whip lash mod - done by hooked - with the el wire whip - think it cost over $100 from memory. Will sell for $75 - pm me for photos and will go and find it today/tomorrow!

Now SOLD.

A cheap, yet impressive, mod is the Iron Monger flasher kit from pinballrefinery.com. A strong led (different colors available) is put behing the Monger and it flashes at the same time as the regular flashers under the Monger. The only disadvantage with this mod is that it needs some soldering. I have installed a red version of this and I am very satisfied with the result.

Another mod that seems great is under cabinets leds from rockcustompinball.com (the standard version, not the basic one). This also works in accordance with the action of the machine and does not require soldering. I have ordered this mod but not received it yet.

I also plan to install side mirrors and a shaker motor in the future.

I would avoid mods that require remotes, batteries and temporary installations. I am also very reluctant to drilling in the toys and/or board.

Another simple mod is the target decal set from Pinballdecals.com which spells I-R-O-N on the left side and M-A-N on the right side. This is something "forbidden" because the license does not allow splitting up "IRON MAN".

Look out for cheaper decals, though...

Add Spot lights on war machine and whiplash. Color matching domes for bumpers.

Quoted from kmoore88:

Have any pics of the spotlights? Whiplash would be great for this as it's the darkest spot on the playfield.

Shaker Motor first, then see Hooked for a lot of good LED character mods

Just took delivery of my second Iron Man last week.
So far the musts haves have been installed:
Flipper Fidelity Speakers
Shaker
Flipper Fidelity Back box kit
Gold flippers
Gold flipper buttons
All LEDs. under the PF.

Next up will be my armor kit (non lollipop so you can see the art work).
After shopping it I will be adding my mods.
Monger with chest light. - Flex 89's to really light him up when they go off.
Whiplash with new 2.3mm EL whips.
War Machine....might go red white and blue on him - unsure.
Weapons drone with green whips (like Ivan at the end of movie 2).
Custom Metal apron with GI and flasher tie ins (much like my ACDC apron Mod.
Brass screws- bolts- levelers.
Mirror blades.

Pop bumper mod has been spec'd and protos expected in 3 weeks - expect a late April launch.

Great game glade to get it back...it left for ACDC prem but not for long.

DM = 3

Sold Avengers LE sold Avengers Pro bought =2

I agree if you buy it more than once you really like it.

Wish I had an IronMan,

But a shaker and some leds and the game is done in my opinion.

Everytime this truck arrives at work I wish it even more

If you're into toppers, this statue on eBay is a nice addition. Doesn't come with the base…I added that. The statue is quite heavy, so it needs a sturdy mount.
