The Iron Man movie's Australian theatrical release
afforded a number of creative marketing opportunities for Stark Industries representatives eager to underline the Melbourne Branch's many achievements.

Here a trio of S.I field testers race to catch a Melbourne tram.

Their objective: to subject Stark built helmets to onboard battering by overhead passenger strap handles, surely the most severe impact test that Iron Man technology has endured, second only to blows from the mighty fists of the Incredible Hulk!


Artists Alison Weaver and Paul Quinn created this iconic statue group which stands on the corner of Swanston and Bourke streets, Melbourne, Australia.

Unveiled on the 20th of April, 1994 the life sized bronze figure sculpture the ‘Three Businessmen Who Brought Their Own Lunch: Batman, Swanston and Hoddle’ is a whimsical tribute to three of Melbourne's early colonial pioneers.

It was presented by President of Nauru Bernard Dowiyogo to the people of Melbourne celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the founding of the Australian city.

The Iron Man movie helmets are (left to right) the Mark 2, Mark 1 and Mark 3.

I shot the 6 inch and 12 inch movie tie-in action figures against a green screen and then 'shopped them in.

There's several more iconic Melbourne landmarks and sculptures that I've also got my eyeslits on....

Oh, and there's an Easter Egg in the picture too.... ;)
