On Thursday, Robert Downey Jr. may have been promoting his new legal drama "The Judge" at the Toronto International Film Festival but one of his young fans couldn't get Iron Man out of his mind -- or his wardrobe.

A little blond boy caught the 49-year-old star's attention at Roy Thomson Hall by appearing as an Iron Man mini me. The boy wore a padded version of the costume Downey Jr. wore as the super hero in five features, including the "Iron Man" trilogy and "Avengers." The actor shook hands with the little boy, who even sported some false facial hair, and posed for a photograph with him on the first day of the film fest.

Downey Jr. also sat down with "ET Canada" to reminisce about his 2004 appearance at TIFF to promote "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang":

Thursday wasn't the first time Downey has encountered some tiny copy-cats.

In April 2013, Downey Jr. traveled to Asia, where he first showed how adept he is at playing with his Iron Man mini me. In South Korea, he celebrated his 48th birthday by cutting a cake with a tiny fan in the Iron Man costume.

And in Beijing, China, Downey got a hug and a kiss from a little boy who was wearing a similar get-up.

RDJ is currently in Toronto promoting his upcoming film "The Judge." Watch the trailer below:
