It makes absolutely perfect sense that augmented reality would find its way into an Iron Man toy. Tony Stark and AR go together like peanut butter and jelly. The Iron Man films, borrowing inspiration heavily from Minority Report, show an alternate universe where a man can slap on a tiny headset and get a cool computer…
Why? That’s the first question people always ask. Why would you want to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112, and then run a marathon? Why would you do it five days in a row? Why would you plan the whole thing yourself? In the five boroughs? In the middle of June?
A decade of movies has brought us to the end of a long road in the form of Avengers: Infinity War, an epic undertaking we finally got our first, glorious look at today. The trailer paints a grim future for our heroes as Thanos makes his long-awaited move, but it’s also jam-packed with hints at the war to come.
Today, Marvel Comics released Legacy #1, the banner book for its latest roster shakeup that lays the groundwork for what’s to come for the Marvel comics universe, on Earth, in the stars, and beyond. Here are all the teasers we saw in the book, and what they might mean for Marvel’s mightiest heroes.
I’ve got an Iron Man figure from Hot Toys on my shelf. It’s 1:6 scale, and is worth a couple hundred bucks. This one is 1:1 scale, and costs almost $8000.
Mere days before 2016 comes to a close, Marvel’s “summer” event series Civil War II has released its last issue. But Civil War II wasn’t going to go down without at least adding a few more twists to the future of the Marvel Universe... and oh boy, did it add some.
Riri Williams has been making headlines before she even readied the mantle as the replacement Iron Man. Now, she’s got the go-ahead from the man himself, in the first comic meeting of the two heroes.
Making their debut at San Diego Comic-Con next week and going wide in 2017, Lego BrickHeadz Marvel and DC buildable figures are freakishly adorable.
It looked like Riri Williams was going to be the next War Machine, taking the spot of the recently deceased James Rhodes. But it turns out that the subplot involving the teenage genius will be going somewhere else entirely. Marvel says that Riri will be wearing red-and-gold power armor soon and becoming an Iron Person.
Iron Man cosplay? Nothing new. Iron Man cosplay that has thruster jets which look like they fire? Very neat.
Marvel Comics’ second Civil War is in full swing now, with the main miniseries and multiple tie-in issues out in the wild. Civil War II started with a major character death and superstar writer Brian Michael Bendis explains why it had to happen that way.
Iron Man is basically a death machine. A slick talking, charismatic death machine but a death machine nonetheless. Once Tony Stark straps on that suit of his, absolutely no one—people, aliens, other robots, whoever is nearby—is safe.
Day one of my first trip to Toy Fair came and went far too quickly. Between bitter cold temperatures and a series of scheduled appointments I didn’t get much time to wander the floor, but when I did I found pretty things at every turn.
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?
