That would rock as a model. Just need to modify the jaw to being a bit more orky, and maybe some new 'stylised' armour, and it could work. Give him an axe
Of course all my topics are pic heavy, you know why? because people don't want to open 12 hyperlinks a page! it stands to reason

They made 8 inch toys of the robot. Try the old ebay. Edit: Yes, your second picture is the toy, you already know...

I say chop his neck off (the orky pose) give him a choppa, make his eyes angry and give him teef! Oh and remember to add hatches, ladders , grots and orks, to tie him in scale-wise!

this seems the right size but the price is a bit steep, must be some sort of collectors item.

this is a little cheaper and a little bigger

There is also a multitude of 4.25 inch tall ones btu i think that could be a little on the small side.

I think this is definately an idea though, i would not change the stature at all, but i would give him a big hammer and make one arm a built in energy cannon type thing.(Like metroid ;) )

ok id say: arms: especially the top/bicep part make thicker as well as hamstring part of leg just seems weedy face: make eyes angry, put teeth on the jaw give him some hand held choppa/chainsaw type weapon (plasticard is your friend) other than that id agree with earlier posts : spiky bits, hatches, grot riggers, errant wires, maybe some bolt on shootas, more rivets, oh oh oh.. maybe add some sorta kannon, 50's esque zzapp, or skorcha on the abs/belly section ( may suggest keep with the whole 50's sci-fi feel of it) maybe on a base of it stompin some panzee/umie/pointy gitz but mostly (of course) have fun with it "if it aint broke, da mek dint fix it" - feral ork warboss

You'd have to majorly beef it up, but it has potential. It'd look good using those long legs to punt a beakie like a big chunky football. See if you can get a good pic of a kickoff in action, and mimick the pose to get a good sense of motion.

Yes, that's American football of which I speak.

I LOVE IRON GIANT! and watch the movie, at the end he goes into "defence" mode and unloads with tons of amazing alien weapons that kick ass. seeing as the iron giant is from a alien race from space, there may be more iron giants, so you could make this one iron giant's brother that landed on an ork held world in the 41st millenium, and that the orks trained him like hogarth did. awsome tasticness! AND SOME OF THE 8 INCHERS WOULD MAKE GOOD KANS IF YOU POSED THEM BETTER THAN THEY COME.

Oh, Yes, because thats the football where you kick the ball alot...

I would thinki it needed a big chunky backpack and probably a a gun on his arm, so big it weighs him down ;)

Spacemanspiff summed it up pretty well. His limbs are pretty weedy especially the upper arms. Could end up being an expensive conversion if you actually going to get one through Ebay as a base model.
That ain't gonna work!

I would definately make the arms beefier, and maybe going so far as to shorten the legs too.

I really like the Metroid arm idea... :! Give it a cannon arm and paint it bloo! Da Bloo Bomma lives again, proppa this time. :thumbs

There are a bunch of the 4.25 inch Iron Giant figures currently on Ebay. Granted, these aren't the right size for your stompa, but might do for making large mechanized orks...probably some mad creation of a Big Mek. Another thought would be to make a mega grot shaped like a large mechanical ork (inspired by wally's mega grot)...."The Grot Who Would Be Nob"...I can just picture a grot hiding inside the chest, turning gears and pulling levers... :!

I think somethign akin to Posted Image but metal would be an awesome melee weapon, and something akin to the metroid arm kannon would look cool on the other arm.

Also i disagree with krooza, i think this would look much more interesting with it's original lanky proportions

in the movie one of his arms does turn into a GIANT cannon, so if you could possibly (don't know if these exist) find a model of him ythat transforms from normal-ness to ultakickassness then that would be amazing
