Fuller Designs‘ newest work appears to be a trio of 8-inch Iron Man Munnys, as evidenced by this photo he recently posted to Instagram. More specifically, it’s two War Machines and a Mark VII Iron Man suit, photographed alongside a custom Jon-Paul Kaiser Dunny that he’s also working on.
I always find it interesting to see how the creative process goes for each artist; I’m wondering how the final product will end up turning out and just how much more Fuller is still planning to put into these Munnys. I can see a peek of his War Machine illustration out on the edge, and it looks like we’ve got a lot of shading to go, plus at least one shoulder-mounted Gatling gun!
