  1. Pulsar Cannon this, Plasma Cannon that. It's Proton Cannon. Wait, actually it's not even that.


    Joking aside, I'm loving this release. I'm happy that Hasbro is trying out different kinds of effects for Iron Man, and the headsculpts this figure comes with are exactly what I wanted it to come with. I might have to get two of these, for the Into the Iron-Verse section of my shelves, one as MvC Iron Man and the other as animated Iron Man.

  2. Interesting development. Although I was looking forward to the story being delivered in a serialized format (and with 5+ hours of total running time), a movie might be for the best, considering the plot would tentatively be pretty straightforward. A lot of the D+ shows have suffered from pacing issues, so maybe this is just Marvel learning from their mistakes.

    That being said, a movie is more high-profile than a show, so there's that. I'm happy that Rhodey will get that kind of exposure and budget.

  3. I'm kinda glad that the Iron Man figure is light on accessories, that should lower the price-point and make this figure a lot more accessible. I do wish he had a diorama piece like the Figuarts version, though.

    Also, I don't see the point of having two battle damaged unmasked heads that use the same sculpt and only differ in the amount of damage. They should have either made one of the unmasked heads a clean version, or they should've given it a different sculpt with a more fierce expression.

  4. I'm cautiously optimistic about this game. The armor design looks interesting, kinda like the MCU Mark 3 the comic Model 51 had a baby. I'm honestly more worried about the writing, and by that I mean the characterization. Most if not all Iron Man adaptations in other media since 2008 have leaned heavily on RDJ's portrayal as a blueprint, but in a "carbon copy" kind of way. I really hope Motive takes a look at the way Square Enix adapted Tony's character for the Avengers game, and then does the opposite.

    1000% in agreement. I was so disappointed when they streamlined him to the extreme for IM3 and Ultron. It took away everything that makes War Machine amazing. 

    Aside from the original IM2 suit, my favorite is Infinity War. It’s huge, beefy, and has an absurd number of weapons sticking out. That’s War Machine. 

    To give the MK 2 some credit, I like that they gave it a distinct visual language from Iron Man's armors, being more blocky and angular. That being said, I agree that making it streamlined wasn't the best idea, and I also agree with the MK 4 from Infinity War being the best armor. The modular weapons backpack is a thing of beauty, and I love the figher jet-inspired aesthetic with the camo pattern.

    A Marvel Unlimited membership is totally useless at this point. There are several free sites where you can find anything on it at any time you want and you don't even have to wait for the new issues. And some of them will even let you download them for free and a small fee for HD. And no, I don't care that I'm screwing the system. The way Marvel has been allowing their staff to treat the fandom over the last decade or so shows they are clearly not concerned with profits, so I don't lose a second of sleep by not giving them my money.

    "This app is useless because you have to pay for it." Now that's a peachy review lol

  7. Wonder if this figure was sculpted by the same person who did the MK 50 Iron Man, it has the similar "stocky torso, lanky arms" propotions. That aside, I gotta give credit to Diamond Select for their continuous inventiveness when it comes to accessories. Although the execution could be better, this is the first Spider-Man figure I can think of to have a plug-in spider-sense effect. Diamond Select were also similarly the first to make a spinning hammer effect for Thor.

    Tony is broke again! He's supposed to be a futurist so his stories should be moving forward not backwards.

    Honestly, one of the things I'm hoping to out of this run is that Marvel finally gets this idea of making Tony low-tech and low-profile out of their system. Then we can get the return of the Tony Stark who used to build satellite research stations and utopic cities and fully-immersive VR landscapes.

  9. I'm not sold on this armor. I understand the desire to make Ironheart look less like Iron Man in the comics, since they co-exist, but here in the MCU, Riri is going to be carrying the mantle. I'm not saying that Riri should have the exact same design language as Iron Man, but that doesn't meant it should go to the other end of the spectrum. This design looks more related to Radiant Red than it does to Iron Man.

    I loved her first appearance look. If this cover is any indication, she's getting rid of that coat and that's good; I never understood why they thought a character whose power is based on energy absorption/ generation/ controlling the electromagnetic spectrum etc. would ever possibly need to wear a trenchcoat.

    Because everybody in Nextwave was wearing a trenchcoat. It was a riff on the trope.

  11. I realized there was something smart the Legends team could have done for Zombie Iron Man.

    Since the original MK 50 helmet was very badly designed, they could not have left Zombie Iron Man's neck exposed in the new upper torso, and they could also have designed new helmeted MK 50 head. That way, collectors could have used this figure's helmeted head to upgrade their previous MK 50.
