iron man-radixArtists Ben Lai and Ray Lai have sued Marvel and Disney, claiming the Iron Man films ripped off the body-armor designs from their comic Radix.

The two brothers, who own Horizon Comics Productions, first rang this bell in April 2013, issuing a press release to announce a cease-and-desist letter just ahead of the premiere of Iron Man 3. However, as THR, Esq., first reported, on Thursday they finally filed a lawsuit in Massachusetts federal court against Marvel Entertainment, Marvel Studios, The Walt Disney Co. and a string of other defendants.

And within three weeks, he had it, complete with working lasers, light-up palm and sound effects.

Mobile Suit Gundam meets Marvel heroes in this fan art series

tumblr_nm0acpEKww1sbbfwho1_500

By and large, people outside Japan can’t fully understand how big Mobile Suit Gundam is. In some ways, it’s a cultural equivalent to American superheroes — and now one artist has melded the two.

Aburaya Tonbi created renditions of Marvel’s Avengers (including Spider-Man) in the style of Mobile Suit Gundam, albeit in a chibi style. Robot versions of Avengers have been made before — even ones loosely inspired by Gundam — but Campbell’s renditions hit at authenticity, while also being cute.

Tony Stark is livin’ large with Hot Toys’ 20-inch Iron Man figure

aou-iron man2

If your complaint with Hot Toys’ Avengers: Age of Ultron collectible figures is that they’re just not big enough, allow us to point you to the 1/4th-scale Iron Man Mark XLIII. That’s 1/4th scale, rather than the usual 1/6th, which means the Armored Avenger stands 20 inches tall.

The prototype was showcased in December at Toy Soul 2014, but now the company’s first 1/4th-scale figure has been officially revealed, featuring a new Tony Stark head sculpt, interchangeable helmeted head, and LED light-up functions on the eyes, arc reactor and repulsors. There are also three pairs of interchangeable palms, and a damaged Ultron Sentry diorama base with detachable head and arm.

Figma’s Iron Man figure puts the gold in Golden Avenger

figma-iron-man4-cropped

Leave it to billionaire playboy Tony Stark to engineer gold Mark XXI armor, and leave it to Max Factory’s Figma line to issue the appropriately titled Iron Man “Midas” variant.

As Toybox helpfully breaks down for us, the 7-inch articulated figure boast wrist-mounted rocket launchers in each gauntlet, FX attachments to make it look as if Iron Man is firing repulsor blasts or flying through the air, and, of course, a stand.

Kick it like Tony Stark in Reebok’s ‘Iron Man’ shoes

reebok iron man The Cincinnati Cyclones aren’t the only ones aping Tony Stark’s style. On Friday, select retailers in Japan and elsewhere will begin selling the Reebok Insta Pump Fury OG, aka “Iron Man.”

Both the burgundy-and-yellow color scheme and the silhouette take their cues from the Golden Avenger, although I’m guessing the similarities end there (no jets in the soles, unfortunately).

Iron Man’s tastes are very … singular in ‘Fifty Shades of Stark’

fifty-shades-of-stark

Let’s face it, as soon as one billionaire-playboy superhero got in on the Fifty Shades of Grey craze, it was only a matter of time before that other one tried his armor-covered hand at it. After all, Tony Stark had cornered the market on “handsome, charming businessman with a dark side” before Christian Grey was even a thought in E.L. James’ head.

This Fifty Shades/Iron Man mashup isn’t as polished as “Fifty Shades of Wayne,” but it certainly has its moments, particularly at the end.
