While Tony Stark may have perished after the events of Avengers: Endgame, fans can rest assured that LEGO has immortalized the armor-clad superhero with more than 35,000 bricks.

The massive life-sized Iron Man model was displayed at San Diego Comic-Con this year and took LEGO’s Lead Model Designer Greg Omartian and Senior Model Builder Jeff Rushby a whopping 255 hours to design and build. It stands 6.5 feet tall and weighs 188 pounds, taking precisely 35,119 LEGO bricks to construct.

Explaining the build process, Omartian says that it all started with a 3D model from Marvel, which was then used as a reference for the model’s pose, and the pieces needed. For him and Rushby, the most attractive part of the statue are the transparent bricks illuminated by LED lights to replicate the Nano Gauntlet’s power surging through Iron Man, but it was no easy task to build: “The most challenging part of designing Iron man was probably incorporating the lights into the eyes, the Arc Reactor, and hand because there’s not much room in the model to add electronics so you have to be very careful about the way you build the outer wall of the model.”

Though it took them an immense amount of time and effort to create the statue, Rushby says it was completely worth it: “It’s definitely cool to build a character as important as Iron Man and to get to send the model to Comic-Con so all the fans can see and interact with it.”

For a better look at the model and to learn more about the whole design and build process, check out the video above.

Elsewhere in the LEGO world, the company has created a highly-realistic Technic Land Rover Defender launching alongside the real car.
