Hot Toys Releasing An Iron Man Figure With No Armor, Who’s Really Beat Up, And Has Lots Of Toys

Now that I own a Hot Toys figure, I can personally attest to their quality but while they’ve already produced a few Iron Man collectibles, they’ve decided to put out another, mostly armor-less one. “Hot Toys is thrilled to introduce the Tony Stark (The Mechanic) Collectible Figurine after the exciting scene where Tony Stark creates homemade weapons to infiltrate The Mandarin’s mansion,” they write on Facebook. “Tony Stark in his battle damaged civilian attire in the movie, highlighting the newly developed head sculpt, an advanced body with light-up chest light and greatly detailed weapons and accessories.” Take a look.

Robert Downey Jr. Says Being Recast As Iron Man Would “Probably Be The Best Thing In The World”

We’re moving ever closer to the next installment of Marvel’s Iron Man, getting new posters every few days, and anxiously awaiting another trailer. And while Robert Downey Jr. may have bombed at the Oscars along with his Avengers co-stars, we know he’ll always be awesome as Tony Stark. Or will he? In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, the actor talked about his long love affair with the character and how it may be time for someone to replace him.

What Better Way To Propose Than With Iron Man’s Heart? [VIDEO]

Ok, that title may sound slightly gory but trust me, this is great. YouTube user Eddie Zarick has a tendency toward tinkering. So much so that his girlfriend took to calling him Iron Man. So when it was time to propose, he paired both things together and created a replica of Tony Stark’s arc reactor that doubled as an engagement ring holder! I guess the only thing cooler would be if Zarick actually had the arc reactor where Stark does but we’re glad his ticker is working just fine on its own.

How Much Would It Cost To Be Iron Man? A Bunch, And Since We Had To Ask We Can’t Afford It Anyway

It turns out that the cost of being Batman is small potatoes compared to how much Tony Stark has to shell out as an adorable billionaire superhero.  Unfortunately I don’t think this informative infographic by Money Supermarket takes into account all the bottles of hard liquor that Tony goes through, but I suppose when you’re shelling out $10,000,000 for a Gold-titanium exoskeleton suit, the small expenses don’t matter as much. Hit the jump for the full infographic!

Live With Tony Stark Thanks To Hot Toys’ New Avengers Iron Man Figure

Hot Toys keeps trying to make geeks go bankrupt. It’s not nice and I demand they stop immediately. Who am I kidding? KEEP MAKING THE AWESOME. We previously showcased their astoundingly realistic Loki statue as well as the moveable-haired Black Widow from their Avengers line. Just yesterday we were happily surprised to find out Agent Coulson is getting his time in the spotlight as well. But while we wait for full images of his figure to be released, Hot Toys has dropped Tony Stark on our doorstep. Take a look at his various accessories and let us know if you think the unmasked hero looks enough like Robert Downey Jr. for your tastes.
