Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Sure, he’s the King of the Seven Seas, a founding member of the Justice League and, if all goes as planned, the star of his own 2018 movie. However, for the second time in three years, Aquaman is also the “Most Toxic Superhero.”
That’s according to Intel Security, which today released its third annual list of online superhero searches that are most likely to lead you to bad links, viruses, malware and websites containing malicious software used to steal passwords and personal information. The information is compiled using McAfee Site Advisor, which rates sites by risk level.
Samuel Lee of Prince Armory is behind such mind-blowing costume and armor creations as the medieval versions of The Joker, Loki and Darth Vader. Now he’s back, this time with a gorgeously detailed Asgardian Iron Man.
The one-of-a-kind suit, made from leather, with brass hardware, isn’t for sale, but he’s always willing to discuss custom orders. However, you may need to have Tony Stark-sized bank account to afford it.
The Iron Man Mark VI armor is actually the result of an attempt by Tony Davis (not Stark) to scale up an earlier minifigure. He tells 3DPrint.com now that’s he successfully scaled the joints — “the joints get weird when you scale them up and down” — he plans to create for figures.
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?
Disney today unveiled a line of toys and wearable accessories that’s billed as “the next step in the evolution of play.”
More than two years in the making, Playmation uses motion sensors and wireless technology to encourage children to be more active during playtime, sending them off to run, jump and shoot as they set off on missions and battle their opponents.
QWERTY is fine and all, but after a 142-year reign, it may be time for GEEKY to inherit the keyboard throne.
A company called GeekKeys offers a selection of plastic and metal key caps inspired by comic books, movies, television video games and more, from The Avengers to Star Wars to Big Hero 6.
Between three solo movies and two Avengers features, there have been a lot of Iron Man action figures release over the past eight years, but few of them — all right, none of them — are as amazing as these custom creations by Sam Kwok.
The artist repaints and sculpts Hot Toys Iron Man and War Machine figures (which don’t come cheap, mind you), reimagining them as characters ranging from Batman and Ultraman to Hello Kitty and the Alien Xenomorph.
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.
As promised, Hot Toys has unveiled a new wave of adorable Avengers: Age of Ultron Cosbaby figures that not only includes the Vision but also — brace yourselves! — Black Widow.
They’re joined by 3.75-inch bobblehead versions of Ultron Prime, Ultron Mark I, Iron Man Mark XLV, War Machine II and, in the collectible set of seven, Tony Stark, holding a teeny-tiny helmet.
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.”
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.
Forget the Hulkbuster, forget Iron Legion, forget Iron Man Mark-whatever. Nothing Tony Stark has squirreled away in his arsenal can compare to China’s Iron Panda.
Created by Beijing artist Bi Heng, the statue of a battle suit-wearing giant panda stands some 20 feet tall and 23 feet wide, dwarfing even the Incredible Hulk, who’d probably be too busy smiling at it to care. Showcased last year at a mall in Hong Kong, Iron Panda is now apparently on display in Shenyang, China.
In times of financial crisis, the world turns to colorful comic-book heroes and villains in this series by Italian artist Alessandro Rabatti.
For “Facebank,” Rabatti reworked graphic elements of banknotes from U.S., British and Chinese currency to merge George Washington and Mao Zedong to create Spider-Man, Queen Elizabeth II and Zedong to make Wolverine and Catwoman, and Abraham Lincoln and Zedong come together to form Batman, and so on. Clearly the takeaway here is that Mao Zedong is incredibly versatile.
Hot Toys has revealed its second series of Avengers: Age of Ultron Artist Mix figures, designed by Touma, which includes The Vision and Iron Man Mark XLV.
The 13-centimeter-tall bobbleheads are joined by Thor, Iron Legion and the Incredible Hulk (who towers over the others at 14.5 centimeters). The deluxe set includes an exclusive gray Rampaging Hulk.
