Plastic Iron Man figures are all well and good, but its hard to maintain the illusion of metal armor when your toy is light as a feather. Weighing in at four pounds, Comicave’s Iron Man Mark XXXVIII Igor figure is pretty heavy metal.
It’s January, which means it’s already time for the merchandising market to start salivating over the next Marvel movie, Captain America: Civil War. Kicking of the proceedings in the battle for whether or not Team Cap or Team Iron Man gets to rummage through your wallet and make your earnings disappear is Bandai!
While the world is raving about the new Captain America: Civil War trailer, on my shelf, it’s still The Age of Ultron.
There is a good chance I am having more fun pretending to be Iron Man with Disney’s PlayMation toys than any child ever could.
At the end of the last version of the Marvel Universe, Dr. Doom became something like a hero. He snatched enough power from near-omnipotent beings to stop the end of the multiverse and saved portions of various multiple realities. Now that things are back to normal, he’s evil again. Or is he?
Not a whole lot is changing with Tony Stark in the new Iron Man comic debuting tomorrow. He’s still an egotistical genius billionaire who flies around saving the world in high-tech power armor. Whew. But one of the people he tussles with on a semi-regular basis looks a whole lot different.
Prop builders have created some awesome costumes in the recent past, but this might be one of the coolest: a life-sized Hulkbuster.
Next month, Marvel is introducing a whole new line up of comics—and a whole new universe to go with them. Don’t know your Earth-616 from your Earth-65? What the hell is with this Secret Wars thing? Will your favorite hero still have a comic? Will they even be the same person? Here’s everything you need to know going…
Actually, there are a LOT of ways that Star Wars could troll its fans, and audiences in general. Almost a whole galaxy’s worth of ways, in fact. But commenter Sean Kelley hit on a great one.
You can’t say the name “Mary Jane Watson” without immediately thinking about Spider-Man. Peter Parker’s favorite redhead originally appeared in the webslinger’s comics more than fifty years ago and has primarily been used in Spidey storylines since then. But she’s leaving webshooters behind... for Stark-brand power…
While there’s been many rumors circulating about just who is fighting who in the next Captain America movie—but newly emerged promotional art has given our first look at just who is standing with Captain America or Iron Man in Marvel’s impending superheroic dustup. There’s even a surprising face or two... spoilers…
Things will be a lot different after the reality-bending events of Marvel Comics’ Secret Wars crossover wrap up. Tony Stark’s still going to be Iron Man, though, and he’ll be wearing an all-new suit of super-armor. It sounds like it can do... anything?
We’ve already gotten a pretty decent look at Sentinel’s Re:Edit Hulkbuster toy in its prototype form, and it looked outstanding then—but this is our first look at the final figure, and it somehow manages to look even more fabulous now.
Artist Jack Lee uploaded a time lapse video, showing him working on an Iron Man sketched that’s inspired by Japanese samurai armor.
Tony Stark’s Iron Man is easily one the most popular character in the Marvel movie-verse. Once the Secret Wars smoke clears, Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez are tasked with making him just as popular on the comic page. It’s not going to be easy.
The whole point of the Hulkbuster is that it’s a suit that goes over Iron Man (well, that’s secondary to the point of it punching the Hulk, but you know what I mean) but so few of the myriad Hulkbuster toys have let you put a full Iron Man figure inside them. At last, King Art’s glorious Hulkbuster toy is changing…
Artist Sam Kwok takes various Iron Man figures, repaints them, sculpts on elements, and makes some truly spectacular custom pieces.
Tony Stark goes through Iron Man suits like they’re going out of fashion. It seems like Hot Toys have a very similar approach, because they’ve announced another two Iron Man related figures that they would really like you to add to your Iron Legion.
