To commemorate the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron in Asia, Hot Toys will be traveling to eight different cities with its "Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron Exhibition." The tour will show off some life-size recreations of the stars and heroes of the film, all crafted by Hot Toys' artists, as well as offering an exclusive Iron Man figure at each stop.
Today we're voting on one of the best-known costumes in superhero comics, because in this case the clothes really do make the (iron) man. Tony Stark and his heirs and imitators may put function first, but that doesn't mean they don't look have to look good too. So let's assess some of the best-known and most influential of more than 50 different Iron Man armors!
Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil has kept reasonably reserved in promotion of its April 10 premiere, but the newest motion poster teases the whole gang, and even a few other superheroes to boot. Meet the full Daredevil cast, and see what Avengers might be lurking nearby in our latest look at Netflix’s man without fear!
Robert Downey Jr., presenting a bionic Iron Man arm to an exceedingly well-dressed 7-year-old fan named Alex, who was born with a partially developed right arm. The arm wasn’t built by Tony Stark, but rather by a college student named Albert Manero who makes low-cost 3D-printed bionic limbs for children. But Downey received the honor and pleasure of presenting him with his new arm, and comparing it to one of his own Iron Man suits.
Armor Wars was one of the first batch of titles teased by Marvel in the early days of its promotion for the upcoming Secret Wars summer event; with only a few spots left to reveal on the Battleworld map, Armor Wars is now one of the last titles to be formally announced, and ComicsAlliance can exclusively reveal that the creative team of writer James Robinson and artist Marcio Takara will be the readers' guides for this corner of Marvel's strange new universe.
The original Armor Wars story in Iron Man #225-#231, by David Michelinie, Bob Layton, Mark D. Bright and Barry Windsor-Smith saw Tony Stark tracking down villains and rivals who had built armor based on stolen Stark designs. In this new Armor Wars there are two Starks --- Tony and Arno --- going head-to-head in a world where everyone has to wear armor, and one of the armored heroes has been murdered.
It's a high-tech murder mystery, but Robinson promises "a big armor war in each issue." We spoke to Robinson and Takara to learn more about the Armor Wars world of Technopolis, and we cracked open Takara's sketchbook to see some of his awesome armor designs.
Folks, if you're like me, you've been waiting for the day you can finally go down to the store and bring home your very own Hulkbuster. That day may be arriving sooner than you think. Though there are going to be plenty of smaller, less imposing Hulkbusters made available through various manufacturers, only one will be up to snuff in busting actual Hulks.
This week sees the release of new Lego Marvel Super Hero sets tying into Avengers: Age of Ultron. While we're still waiting for the SHIELD Helicarrier to arrive, the series did drop a quinjet, a Hulkbuster, and a mini-Avengers Tower, among others, onto store shelves. Having been out of the Lego game for almost two decades, these were the sets that were going to bring me back into the fold. It was mighty hard to resist the quinjet set, but if there's one thing my house is missing, and that I could no longer live without, it's an Avengers Tower.
This morning, Hot Toys formally unveiled the Avengers: Age of Ultron Iron Man Hulkbuster sixth-scale figure. As arguably the most anticipated collectible from the series, fans had been salivating and speculating for months about what to expect. Judging from the announcement, those expectations will be met, and then some.
Another day, another ComicsAlliance contest. This time, we're teaming with Sideshow Collectibles to offer you the chance to win your very own Iron Man 3 Iron Man MK XVII (Heartbreaker) sixth-scale figure by Hot Toys. We literally cannot stop just giving things away. You're welcome.
Since the release of Marvel Studios' Iron Man in 2008, the genius, billionaire, philanthropist playboy has emerged as arguably the most popular character in the Marvel cinematic universe. As a result, there's been a high demand for merchandise showing of the iconic character in all manner of metallic garments.
Many of you may be familiar with Hot Toys' continuing efforts to release as many Iron Man armors as is humanly possible, but those figures have largely been confined to the film versions. If you're looking for comic book styles, your choices have been much more limited. However, you'll have some new options to choose from thanks to Sentinel's RE:EDIT line.
