  1. Wasn't All-New Wolverine the best received legacy character from its litter and isn't Tom Taylor's run lauded as one of Laura's best books, though?
  2. I already have Tobey on pre-order. Depending on how Andrew turns out, I might just end up convincing myself to pre-order all three Spider-Men. What little we see here of Tom looks pretty good, especially the colors they picked.
  3. That Space Armor was a different model. Here's them side-by-side (the Neo-Classic with the slimmer boots from its earliest appearances): Although the Space Armor has oversized boots similar to the Model 9's later interpretations, the biggest differences are that the Space Armor has a square unibeam, and a rounder helmet with no mouth slit and some compartments on the sides. It also has a compartment in the back and shoulders. On the side of minor differences, the Space Armor two slits of gold in the gauntlets and gloves instead of one, and some extra detailing in the belt. The trunks and the shoulder pads are also ribbed instead of smooth.
  4. Aww man. This is very close to my ideal Avengers status quo pitch and the premise is only gonna be a spin-off miniseries of the main title? Will make sure to check it out regardless.
  5. Any time a figure like this comes out I think about how the legacy of the Marvel NOW! Armor is just that it introduced black and gold as a viable Iron Man color palette. Interestingly enough, it's not like there are as many red and silver palette swaps out there to harken back to the Silver Centurion.
  6. Just for reference, the article has corrected that information. It was already listing May 29 as the pre-order date when I read it the first time around.
  7. Pleasantly surprised that Iron Patriot is not just an Extremis repaint with only a slighty-resculpted chest like it's always been before. New head, upper torso, shoulder pads, and legs from the thigh cut down. Color me impressed.
  8. Hulkbuster looks far better than it did with the studio lights used in the reveal video.
  9. Will need to make room in my desk for that Iron Man. Maybe I'm biased, but I kinda like it more than the rest. Being a piece from the 70s, it feels more evergreen than the other statues, which are very late-80s-to-90s. That being said, I wouldn't mind either if they adapted some cover featuring the Modular Armor in all of its 90s shading glory some time down the line.
  10. I'm gonna have to hard press X to doubt on that one. Land's compositions can get pretty bad, the bodies of the characters he draws can come across as stilted mannequins, most of his faces have an uncanny valley factor to them regardless of being traced or not, and everything has this waxy texture to it. Characters' facial expressions rarely correspond to the emotions they transmit via dialogue, not to mention he almost always defaults to squinted eyes and either a smile or gritted teeth. And what's worse is that the smiles he draws always feel unnatural. When two or more characters share a panel, it can often feel like they're not actually co-existing in the same space. Really, tracing is the least of Land's problems. At this point, his tracing is just a fun Easter egg that only serves to bolster the criticism for artwork that is by default subpar. His artwork actively takes away from the reading experience with how awkward and uncanny everything feels.
  11. I'm pleasantly surprised. The Marvel Select version looks better, but this one has far better articulation and accessories (not "better" or "more accessories" on account of the Marvel Select version having none at all). That unmasked headsculpt is pristine. Please, Hasbro. Release a version of it without the techy support thingie. Please. It'd make for the definitive modern Tony Stark headsculpt. Just make sure it's actually well-scaled and not a bobblehead. Back to the Hulkbuster iself, it looks like it might be color-matched with the Puff Adder wave Extremis Iron Man, which is a good thing. Just wished they compared it to that figure instead of the ones they used for this presentation.
  12. Not an X-guy, but I'm incredibly happy for Ayodele. I loved his and Dotun Akande's work in I Am Iron Man, so I'm glad that they're both getting more work with Marvel.
  13. The true takeaway from this news for me is that Valerio Schiti is going to be the new artist of the book. He's one of my favorite artists, and one of my top Iron Man pencilers. So I'm very happy that Schiti-drawn Tony Stark is back on the menu.
  14. The comics do something with the armor classification that can be used to handwave minor tweaks in a given armor. The movies made it the standard to call suits "Iron Man Armor Mark X," but in the comics the nomenclature was originally "Iron Man Armor Model X Mark Y." For example, the original War Machine Armor is "Iron Man Armor Model 10 MK I" and the version with the unibeam and different weapons that Tony made for Rhodey is "Iron Man Armor Model 10 MK II." So the version of the Model 9 with slimmer boots could be Model 9 MK I, and the version with the bigger boots could be Model 9 MK II.
