Axel-In-Charge: Waid & Samnee on "Black Widow" and the Dawn of the All-New, All-Different Era
Still haven’t gotten around to watching Avengers: Age of Ultron? Hey, it’s only been five months; we understand. Lucky for you, and your busy schedule, How It Should Have Ended and Brotherhood Workshop have save you the time by condensing the Marvel Studios sequel into a two-minute animated LEGO video.
Further widening the Avengers: Age of Ultron collectibles gap — seriously, there must be eight Iron Man figures for every one of the other characters — Kotobukiya has revealed images and details for its Iron Man Mark 45 ARTFX statue.
If you’re a fan of all things Tony Stark, and ARTFX statues, this will likely find a place in your collection. Standing 12 inches tall, the 1/6th-scale figure features the expected movie details, along with LED lights in the arc reactor, eyes and palms, and an Avengers display stand.
More than five months after the debut of the core SH Figuarts action figures for Avengers: Age of Ultron — Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the Hulk, but no other heroes — Bandai has finally revealed their opponent. Y’know, the homicidal robot from the film’s title.
Standing about 6.9 inches tall, Ultron looks incredibly detailed, and incredibly menacing (for comparison, the Hulk figure is 9 inches tall). Available for preorder for about $58 from Tamashi Nations, the SH Figuarts Ultron is expected to ship in May 2016.
After teasing collectors a couple of weeks ago with a tantalizing glimpse from Ani-Com and Games Hong Kong, Hot Toys has officially revealed its Avengers: Age of Ultron Quicksilver figure in a series of photos that features some familiar faces. (Ahem: Scarlet Witch, Captain America and Hawkeye figures sold separately.)
With the release of the 1/6th-scale Pietro Maximoff figure, presumably sometime early next year, Hot Toys’ Age of Ultron team will be complete.
When Hot Toys teased it had more in store for its previously announced 1/6th-scale Avengers: Age of Ultron Hulkbuster figure, that wasn’t mere marketing hype. And this morning there are photos to prove it.
The company has revealed “upgrades” to the nearly 21-inch figure that include two more interchangeable neck-armor parts that allow the Hulkbuster to be displayed in different stages of suiting up, an interchangeable battle battle-damaged chest armor plate, and improved arm, legs and feet articulations.
Just when it seemed we might never see an Avengers: Age of Ultron Quicksilver collectible figure from Hot Toys, a prototype has been spotted in the wild — or, rather, at Ani-Com and Games Hong Kong — alongside Nick Fury and Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Drax the Destroyer.
There’s no word yet when the 1/6th-scale Quicksilver figure, based on the likeness of actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson, will be available, but considering the recently revealed Scarlet Witch isn’t expected to ship until the end of this year or the beginning of the next, we may be waiting a while.
LEGO always makes an impression at Comic-Con International with its enormous brick sculptures created by Master Builders. For this year’s display, the toymaker is calling in the heavy hitters — namely, the Incredible Hulk and Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor.
MTV News has the first look at the sculptures, which recreate that memorable moment from Avengers: Age of Ultron when the battling Hulk and Iron Man punch each other, creating a sonic boom.
I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore, Falcon. Darren Wallace is an Australian special effects artist who gets his kicks mashing up disparate films into uncanny parody trailers. His latest such clip may be his greatest masterwork yet.
When you think about it, Ultron in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is really just the Tin Man from “Wizard of Oz,” except without a moral compass. He’s a heartless mechanical creation who joins up with other unfortunate downtrodden souls to reach his own end. Okay, so that’s stretching the Tin Man’s motives some, but stick with it for a minute and you’ll enjoy the heck out of Wallace’s “Avengers of Oz: Age of Tin Man” trailer.
Although most Marvel fans are looking ahead to Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange, Hot Toys isn’t finished with Avengers: Age of Ultron just yet. This morning the high-end collectibles company unveiled its new 1/6th-scale Thor figure, based on the likeness of actor Chris Hemsworth in the blockbuster sequel.
Standing about 32 centimeters tall, the action figure boasts 30 points of articulation, a new head sculpt (which, judging from early reaction on Facebook, isn’t exactly a crowd-pleaser), four pairs of interchangeable palms, an LED light-up Mjolnir and a metal Mjolnir with lightning effect accessory, and a display stand.
As the clock ticks down to Comic-Con International — it’s less than a month away, start packing! — LEGO has announced a convention-exclusive Marvel Super Heroes playset: the “Throne of Ultron” from Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Revealed by The Hollywood Reporter, the 203-piece set features an Ultron minifigures and three Ultron Sentries. It’s priced at a reasonable $39.99, but you may have a devil of a time getting one, as they’ll parceled out in a limited number each day.
Countless thousands of Marvel fans likely would love to get their hands on a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Iron Man Limited Edition, but how many are willing to pay in the high five figures for it?
One of those sweet, sweet red-and-gold smartphones sold Thursday for about $91,600 in an auction held by a China’s second-largest online retailer, JD.com. That’s just a little more than its suggested $1,079. So what’s so special about this phone that it would attract 92,429 bids, driving the price so high?
At long last, Hot Toys has unveiled its Avengers: Age of Ultron collectible figure of the Scarlet Witch, Hydra operative turned Ultron ally turned one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
As with all the previous releases from Hot Toys, the 1/6th-scale action figure is “movie-accurate,” and based on the likeness of actress Elizabeth Olsen. Standing about 11 inches tall, the Scarlet Witch features 28 points of articulation, eight interchangeable hands (including some with red translucent fingertips), two power-using effects accessories, two necklaces, a display stand and, as a bonus … Ultron’s heart.
While some artists are a masters of charcoal, watercolors or metal, Daniel Drake‘s chosen medium is pancake batter. Perhaps better known as Doctor Dan the Pancake Man, he’s gone from goof-off fry cook to “the World’s First Professional Pancake Artist,” which you have to admit probably looks pretty cool on a business card.
In a video now making the rounds thanks to Reddit, Dr. Dan takes on Avengers: Age of Ultron, creating pancake portraits of the Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Thor, Iron Man, Nick Fury and even an impressively complex Ultron. Sorry, no Falcon, Scarlet Witch, Vision or Quicksilver …
Following a week-long buildup, Samsung this morning officially debuted its Galaxy S6 Edge Iron Man Limited Edition, a collaboration with Marvel to celebrate the “technological innovation and creative visual storytelling in Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
As expected, the smartphone goes beyond a mere red-and-gold color scheme; there’s an Iron Man helmet etched on the back, a wireless charger designed to look like an arc reactor, 64GB of storage, and customized software with new icons and fonts.
A mere week after tantalizing fans with an image of the glowing box, Samsung has unveiled a new teaser for the Iron Man-themed special edition of its Galaxy S6 Edge, accompanied by the words “Coming Next Week.”
The shadowy image provides a slightly better idea of what to expect when the smartphone arrives: It’s, of course, red and gold, and — like the glowing box — boasts an image of Iron Man’s helmet. We’ll have to wait a while longer to find out whether it features its own J.A.R.V.I.S.
