quicksilver9-social

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.

Hot Toys’ ‘Age of Ultron’ Hulkbuster gets a serious upgrade

ht-hulkbuster11-social

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.

Yes, Hot Toys will release a Quicksilver figure — and here’s proof

hot-toys-quicksilver1-cropp

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-hulk-v-hulkbuster1-cro

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.

There’s a Storm Blowin’ Up in This Perfect ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and ‘Wizard of Oz’ Mashup

Screen Shot 2015-06-28 at 5.23.15 PM

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.

The pancake Avengers are Earth’s Tastiest Heroes

pancakes2

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 …

samsung-iron man5

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.

samsung-iron-man2-cropped

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.

Samsung teases Iron Man-edition Galaxy S6 Edge

samsung-iron-man-cropped

Samsung today teased an Iron Man-themed special edition of its Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone that’s so glorious the contents of the box glow, like the briefcase from Pulp Fiction. Or maybe that’s simply a marketing ploy.

As for what’s inside, we only have a Korea Times report from last month in which a Samsung executive said the phone will (of course) be red, and reflect the design of Iron Man’s armor. It’s expected to be released either this month or in June, but the teaser says only “Coming Soon.”

Chinese art teacher builds his own 11-foot Hulkbuster

hulkbuster1

Tony Stark, meet your newest — and possibly fiercest — rival: 26-year-old Xing Yile, a middle-school art teacher from China’s Henan province.

After seeing a trailer for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, Xing and some friends decided to recreate Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armor. According to Business Insider, they worked for two months in an underground parking garage in Zhengzhou, assembling the 11-foot-tall replica out of more than 100 fiberglass-reinforced plastic components.
