An Iron Man Figure Worth Its Weight In Gold

For ages, Kotaku's Luke Plunkett has taunted me with pictures of Hot Toys figures, the most spectacular sixth-scale, highly-articulated, true-to-life (where applicable) toys available. Now I've gotten my hands on one — the Iron Man Mark XXI Midas Armor sold by Sideshow Collectibles, and I may have been better off… » 11/29/13 10:00pm 11/29/13 10:00pm

The Hot Toys Event in Japan Was a Geekgasm of Iron Man

I've made no secret for my love of the Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece line of collectible figurines in the past. So, when I discovered that they were having an exhibition event in Tokyo, I immediately set about finding some way to go. » 9/14/13 12:00pm 9/14/13 12:00pm

But this summer also beat last summer for total ticket sales. Here are the summer's biggest winners and losers. » 8/29/13 1:04pm 8/29/13 1:04pm

The Problem of Premature Nerdgasms

Geeky pop culture sometimes feels like a collection of cool stuff: "Hero" moments and "holy shit did you see that" images. And sometimes it feels like the people who update our most beloved stories want to include those moments — without doing anything to set them up properly. The premature nerdgasm is a serious… » 7/31/13 12:46pm 7/31/13 12:46pm

Iron Man 3: The Fall (and Rise) of Tony Stark

The first Iron Man movie uses Tony Stark as a metaphor for American power, with Tony's near-lethal chest wound signifying his remorse at spreading weapons around Afghanistan. The brilliant Iron Man 3 makes this connection even more explicit, giving us an elaborate fable of post-9/11 America and a paranoid-but-cocky… » 5/03/13 9:27am 5/03/13 9:27am

Why Many in China Hate Iron Man 3's Chinese Version

There are two versions of Iron Man 3: One is the international version, and the other is the Chinese version, with added scenes. This version was made especially for the People's Republic. But that certainly doesn't mean everybody there likes it. » 5/02/13 6:00am 5/02/13 6:00am

Thailand's Fake Iron Man 3 Trailer Sure Is Something Else

Iron Man 3 is a big budget Hollywood production. What do you do when you want to recreate the movie's trailer and don't want to spend hundreds of millions of dollars? Something like this, I guess. » 4/30/13 4:30am 4/30/13 4:30am

Pre-Armor Tony Stark Would Enjoy the Iron Man 3 Game's Glitz and Greed

Before a weapon produced by his own company left him no choice but to become a better man, Tony Stark was a textbook billionaire industrialist playboy, motivated by money and power, with a penchant for glamorous things. He was the sort of guy that would create Iron Man 3: The Official Video Game, in which players… » 4/25/13 11:45am 4/25/13 11:45am

Iron Man Figure Takes Steroids, Thinks It Can Fight Megatron

I've been staying away from Iron Man 3 trailers, as I stay away from most trailers these days, because I like to enjoy the best parts of a movie when I actually see the movie for the first time, thank you. » 4/24/13 3:30am 4/24/13 3:30am
