“When I was a child I spoke as a child I understood as a child I thought as a child; but when I became a man I put away childish things.” I Corinthians 13:11 – Paul

I would like to think that Paul, the author from the Bible who many think wrote the above quote, would have modified the end of that sentence to read, “…unless it’s a comic book movie toy, especially from Iron Man 2, because those are awesome!” Readers and followers of movie news find some of the most interesting things about upcoming films through their toys and other marketing aimed at children.

Remember how the blog world was set ablaze when the first images of Cobra Commander from G.I. Joe circulated because of the toy images that were released? Well the toys we have today aren’t as disappointing; in fact they are downright cool. Coming Soon has produced a couple pictures of Iron Man 2 action figures – an early Mark II design but more importantly the latest, greatest, Mark VI armor. Click on each picture for a larger view.

I like figures like this; my son will immensely enjoy terrifying my daughter’s Barbies with War Machine’s missile launcher. One thing that does strike me as odd, though, is the chest piece for Iron Man’s Mark VI armor. In a picture that Editor-in-Chief Vic Holtreman took this past summer at Comic Con, you get a good look at the Mark IV version of the armor (which we can only assume is the version Iron Man 2 opens with). Look at the pictures side-by-side below and tell me what you see different.

So I’m guessing that Ol’ Shellhead gets several new sets of armor by the end of Iron Man 2 and this latest toy reflects the final thinner, sleeker, design (the Mark VI). Of course, it could just be the toy makers and studios are releasing the Mark VI design just to sell more toys. For the first movie, there were a bunch of Iron Man armor types released in toy form that never made it to the screen. In all likelihood, though, the Mark VI will be what we get; can’t wait to see the enhancements they add to it.

What do you think of the new look of the Iron Man Mark VI armor? My wife sometimes tells me the only reason I had kids was to eat their snacks and play with their toys but what does she know? Whatever, I’m off to finish eating my fruit snacks and pudding cups while building with my Lincoln Logs and Erector Set.

  1. @Drew

    O.K. Then I’m lost again xD

  2. Not sure about the triangle, i presume some kind of super laser pulse beam comes out of it?


  4. Blue.. thats what he was saying,

    actually the change in the dark knights costume was because BALE wanted to be able to move more and HE wanted to turn his head.. he says so in an interview..

    he went to nolan and the change comes from that. they also wanted the new suit to be even more realistic then the last one. Thus the noticeable padding and reinforcements.

    I think they felt they could go more modern because the character had been re-established, it was their character, their batman.. And hardly anybody cared lol

  5. @Rich…

    I mentioned this already but…. The changes I was referring to with Batman were really more applicable to the 80’s series and after my post I realized I shouldn’t have included the BATMA BEGINS & DARK KNIGHT in with the 80’s run of films.

  6. um one thing people left out well i probally know this because i was a fan of iron man way before he movie.The thing you saw all over tony stark was called “stretna a thing that happens o tony because of his wound he got with the gun the stretna is very deadly he never knows were its gonna go some times it goes in his leg and stops him from walking sometimes it goes in his arm and makes him completely useless its terrible and uncontrollable look it up. lol oh yeah also iron man’s armor chest piece is gonna remain circle it was origanily tringle but you know and the should not change it it’s already done man warmachine looks coool in the movie but iron man is way way stronger plus rhodey the one who uses the armor war machine doesnt have a chest piece sooo hes gonna run out of energy quicker
