So you know Stan Winston, the Academy Award-winning special effects designer who worked on Terminator, Predator, Jurassic Park and Iron Man? Well, it turns out that he founded a school, and if that list of movies wasn’t enough to make you think you could probably learn a thing from it, then they now have the best possible advertisement they could ask for in Kai-Xiang Xhong, who builta life-sized, wearable suit of cardboard Iron Man armor and earned himself the nickname “The Taiwanese Tony Stark.”

The suit — which, fortunately, did not involve Xhong being kidnapped and held for ransom by terrorists allied with the Ten Cardboard Rings faction — is just the tip of the iceberg for his creations. Check below for more, including Optimus Prime, lifelike animals and an amazing dragon that was his first-ever cardboard sculpture!

While cardboard is certainly his favored medium, Xhong also works with a few other items as well. Like, for instance, drinking straws:

Yeah. That thing is made of straws.

For more of Xhong’s creations, check out the Stan Winston School’s website. Or, you know, just wait five years and watch a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster. Pretty sure that guy’s on his way.
