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.

Fantastic Fan Made War Machine Suit

I have been saying I want an Iron Man suit for the longest time, but looks like one fan went ahead and made his own War Machine suit from the initial spy releases of the images. At first I thought these were promo images from the movie, but turns out this is a real suit made by a fan, its fantastic and looks as good as the movie.

Even Jon Farveau the director of Iron Man and Iron Man 2 loved the suit so much he tweeted about it, the proportions of the suit is fantastic. Anthony Le did an amazing and realistic job of the War Machine suit.

Iron Man 2 – Trailer


And its out, the trailer is a total show of awesomeness, if ever I’m at a loss of words then this would be the time. When I saw this trailer all I could think was Holy @#$&@)#&$()!*&!

We see Robert Downey Jr. returning as Tony Stark, the now-outed billionaire who has built himself some sweet gear and a badass alter-persona in Iron Man. We also get an introduction to the man who will be after him, the vengeful Russian prisoner Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke), otherwise known as Whiplash. Scarlett Johansson shows up as Black Widow, if only briefly. Gwyneth Paltrow is back as the lovely and loyal Pepper Potts. And for the pièce de résistance for fans, we get a quick action shot of Iron Man fighting off what appears to be an army of robotic foes alongside his badass buddy War Machine (Don Cheadle).

Iron Man – Kotobukiya Statue

Every once in a while you find the right piece that you really don’t expect, and this came out of no where. I received the Kotobukiay Iron Man Statue for my birthday a few months back and I have had the hardest time trying to figure out where to put this amazing statue, I can’t get enough of it but I didn’t want to ruin it. I kept on trying to figure out the perfect location for it, and simply I found the perfect spot in my home theater area.

I placed Iron Man on the left front speaker, and I didn’t know until I unboxed him that there are is a switch to see the lights of the eyes and the chest plate. Its such a cool statue, I keep thinking if only I had the real life suit that this would be cooler. Its a perfect 13 inches, with a few bumps and bruises to resemble the real suit and the quality of the Kotobukiya statue is honestly amazing, every time a friend walks in I ask them what they think, the usual reaction is that its cool but when I switch on the light of the suit, there eyes pop out. I am one happy movie goer, now to only work on the getting a fully functional suit.
