IRON MAN 2 Mark VI Statue – Kotobukiya

I have was gifted the original Kotobukiya Iron Man Statue last year, and its probably one of my favorite models that I currently own. I honestly look at that Iron Man consistently, wondering what it would take to make a machine such as this, and it looks so realistic and such a fantastic model.

Now they have come up with the new design of the new Iron Man, and it looks good, they look fantastic together. Now the movie comes out in May of 2010 and this model from Kotobukiya comes out in September of 2010. You can see the developments in the suit, now to see what this equates to as weaponery and suit strength in the movie. I hope that Kotobukiya comes out with a War Machine model that can go with these beautiful models as well.

Iron Man: Armored Adventures

With the success of Iron Man, Marvel Studios has followed up with an Iron Man animated show called Iron Man: Armored Adventures. In this case they take the younger version of Tony Stark the genius and go through how he developed all the different version of the suit and it’s purposes, as this monstrosity called the Dynamobuster which is meant to destroy all that is in it’s path. Then the other versions for deep space travel, atmospheric flight and battle, the other version is a stealth suit meant to penetrate all kinds of surveillance and security. This is looking to be a very fun show, the animation and CGI quality is very good so they haven’t ruined it as I would have expected, its a bit of kid’s story line but still very entertaining and I have just seen a few episodes.

When his industrialist father Howard Stark disappears in a plane crash after refusing to weaponize the Earth Mover at Obadiah Stane’s behest, 16 year old genius Tony uses a high-tech suit of armor he has constructed and investigates a charge that Stane may have been involved in his father’s death. As Iron Man, Tony spends his time stopping Stane’s plans and saving the world from other villains such as Mandarin, Mr. Fix, Whiplash, A.I.M., Madame Masque, Living Laser, the Maggia, Firebrand, Controller, Crimson Dynamo, Blizzard, Killer Shrike, Unicorn, M.O.D.O.K., Ghost, Fin Fang Foom, Black Knight, and Technovore. He is assisted in his crime fighting efforts with help from James Rhodes and Pepper Potts. Tony’s activities as Iron Man usually result in his needing to make up excuses as to why he is constantly late or missing from school and other activities. Now dependent on his phenomenal technology for survival, Tony must balance the pressures of teenage life with the duties of being a super hero.
