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.
Remember that bit in Iron Man 3 where Tony Stark relaxes in his Iron Man armor on his couch? Well, good news for fans who’ve been waiting to create that moment on your toy shelf for three years: you finally can. If you’re heading to San Diego Comic-Con with a fair chunk of change, that is.
It’s hard to nail down an exact number, but based on the comics and movies, Tony Stark has created somewhere between 46 to 52 different Iron Man suits. Lego customizer Minh Pham has flawlessly recreated 24 of them by painstakingly modifying and customizing Lego Minifigs.
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.
Don’t have billions of dollars at your disposal like Tony Stark or S.H.I.E.L.D. do? You can still build some impressive superhero accessories like Iron Man’s laser-blasting gauntlet or Captain America’s boomeranging shield, using easily found electronics, a little ingenuity, and some clever hacking.
In the popular imagination Iron Man is a lot of things: smart, smarmy, a little bit of a lecher, and a raging alcoholic. A lot of that is owed to Robert Downey Jr. But everyone’s favorite armored scientist has come a long way since 1966.
It’s long been rumored, but now it’s actually happening: Robert Downey Jr. will reprise his role as the Iron Avenger Tony Stark in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Peter Parker’s feature-length entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The director talks about the Batman v Superman mythos, and 300's future, too. Daisy Ridley confirms talks for Tomb Raider. David Benioff hypes the next season of Game of Thrones. Plus wild new Jungle Book cast pictures, and what to expect on tonight’s Flash, iZombie, and Agents of SHIELD. So many Spoilers!
If you’re a stickler for details and accuracy, don’t assume that making your own cosplay props and costumes is cheaper than buying a replica. Often it can cost thousands of dollars to get it right, so Hasbro and Marvel are teaming up on a line of detailed role play accessories that will make accurate cosplay slightly…
A prosthetic hand is about more than just improving the wearer’s physical capabilities. It’s also about improving their self-confidence. So Open Bionics, makers of low-cost but highly capable prosthetic robotic hands, have teamed up with Disney to realize some very cool designs.
Prop builders have created some awesome costumes in the recent past, but this might be one of the coolest: a life-sized Hulkbuster.
Actually, there are a LOT of ways that Star Wars could troll its fans, and audiences in general. Almost a whole galaxy’s worth of ways, in fact. But commenter Sean Kelley hit on a great one.
Hot Toys’ Age of Ultron Hulkbuster was already a freakishly detailed and ridiculously impressive toy—and not to mention insanely expensive. Now it’s getting even more ridiculous, and that can only mean good things.http://toybox.io9.com/the-hot-toys-h...
Update: Guys, I got this totally wrong. Not about the figure being giant and awesome, but it was made by Comicave, not Hot Toys, and it is totally not for sale at this point. My apologies to Comicave for misattributing this stunning achievement (I still think black magic was somehow involved).
We’ve already gotten a pretty decent look at Sentinel’s Re:Edit Hulkbuster toy in its prototype form, and it looked outstanding then—but this is our first look at the final figure, and it somehow manages to look even more fabulous now.
Hasbro’s Titan Hero series take action figures back to their humbler roots when size was more important than articulation. But that also means the 12-inch figures are perfect for younger kids who play rough with their toys, and don’t mind that the new Titan Hero Hulkbuster is almost as big as they are.
There are countless reasons why it would be awesome to wear one of Tony Stark’s Iron Man suits, not the least of which being the slick heads-up display providing info on targets and other nearby threats. But for just $55 (instead of billions) these laser-etched glowing plastic shades provide a similar experience on…
