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!
Tonight's Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe special didn't blow too many minds as it preempted Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but the hourlong Marvel movie commercial special did succeed in revealing concept art of two characters fans have been waiting to see for awhile. Get a look at Scarlet Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver's (played by Aaron Johnson) potential costume designs from Avengers: Age of Ultron -- plus Iron Man battling the Hulk in his Hulkbuster armor -- after the cut.
Good Smile Company will release the second of its "Big Three" Figma action figures from The Avengers movie in August with two different versions of Iron Man sporting his shiny Mark VII armor. The only hitch? Both of them will run collectors Tony Stark prices.
Tony Stark must be furious, after all that work he did to keep the government from seizing his designs.
In a speech at a manufacturing innovation event at the White House Tuesday, President Barack Obama said, "Basically we're building Iron Man." He laughed it off as a joke, then said, "Not really. Maybe. It's classified." But it's a real thing, and the first prototypes are going to be ready in June, according to Sploid. They could be deployed by August 2018.
Good Smile Company's The Amazing Spider-ManFigma won't be its lone Marvel hero for much longer. This past weekend at Wonder Festival in Japan, the toymaker displayed its painted Iron Man and Thor prototypes, along with an unpainted Captain America, assembling three of the biggest stars from The Avengers movie.
Fans who've been waiting to see Ashely Wood's fully-realized take on The Invincible Iron Man need wait no longer. 3A Toys has revealed four colorways for its Invincible Iron Man figure and teased a preorder release timeframe of February.
Fans may be saying farewell to Hasbro's 3.75" Marvel Universe action figure line, but pretty much in name only. This spring the line is reborn Infinite style, with an Avengers subline debuting Marvel Universe compatible versions of The Wasp, "Marvel Now" Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, The Grim Reaper and Hyperion.
