The New Iron-Man… (Toys).


Hot Toys has revealed its upcoming figure based on Iron Man’s appearance in ‘Avengers: Infinity War and it provides a detailed new look at Tony Stark’s upgraded armor and the amazing weapons he’ll wield.  Spoilers below…

Avengers: Infinity War is going to feature updated looks for a lot of our favourite heroes, including Iron Man. We’ve known for a while that Tony Stark will be rocking a brand new suit of armour in the highly anticipated movie and now Hot Toys has unveiled an action figure giving us a detailed look both at its many capabilities and the various changes which have been made to the hero’s appearance here.

The figure features an interchangeable helmeted head with metallic red, gold and silver colored armor painting and a newly painted head sculpt with striking likeness, LED light-up functions scattered throughout the armor, a variety of Iron Man’s latest weapons including interchangeable LED light-up Nano Repulsor Cannon, Hand Cannon on left arm, a pair of attachable Nano Boosters on the back, and a specially designed figure stand with the movie’s logo. So, that confirms nanotechnology then.

Tony Stark Gives His Armor Away To A One Armed Boy.

The real Tony Stark AKA Robert Downey Jr. in conjunction with EnablingTheFuture delivered a real bionic prosthesis to a young fan, Alex, who was born without most of his right arm. The project, led by Albert Manero, aims to make low-cost 3D-printed arms for the disabled and Alex’s looks so much like a real Iron Man arm that even Stark was jealous.  It’s wonderful to see these sorts of things happen. 3D printing has long been derided as a gimmick but with these and other similar projects popping up and gaining traction we’re looking at an era where everyone, not just prosthetic experts, can help people who are disabled or disadvantaged. That Manero and Microsoft got Robert Downey Jr. to show up to this unveiling was icing on the feel-good cake. Previous EnablingTheFuture projects included a Storm Trooper arm presented by Vader himself and a kid who can now play guitar thanks to these designs. We’ve come a long way from being able to print highly-detailed 3D rabbits.
