Once the Iron Man figures went on sale I really had little I wanted to get from the line but this particular figure intrigued me. Once I got all of the paint apps on Inferno Armor Iron Man off (albeit getting some nasty chemical burns on my hands... dohohoho puns. (I think)) he looked pretty cool.
Even made a makeshift light stand for him, just so I could stare at his translucency all day.
A friend of mine suggested painting the head chrome for a sort of Henshin Cyborg/ Microman sort of look.
