In ‘Iron Cat,’ a frustrated feline takes flight

iron cat

Tired of being taunted by a pair of apparently free-roaming (and clearly evil) parakeets, a cat named Prince Michael turns to science in this video from filmmaker Aaron Benitez. When that fails him, he finds inspiration in Marvel’s Iron Man 2, and with the help of Benitez becomes … Iron Cat.

“No cats or birds were harmed” in the making of the video, the filmmaker assures, but that’s probably only because Prince Michael isn’t equipped with repulsor rays.

How much does it cost to be Iron Man? You can’t afford it

stark

If you had dreams of being a superhero, you better aim to be bitten by a radioactive spider, exposed to gamma radiation or recruited by a secret government program, because there’s no way you can afford to become Iron Man.

A new video from Super Comic Fun Time uses some pretty solid real-world prices, ranging from Bill Gates’ house to Japan’s K computer to the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit, to arrive at a price for living like Tony Stark — clothes, Stark Tower, multiple Iron Man suits, the works.

Iron Man and Captain America face off in ‘Kung Fu Avengers’

kung-fu-avengers

In what we can only hope is a preview of Marvel Studios’ Captain America: Civil War, Beat Down Boogie delivers a tribute to those horribly dubbed martial-arts films of the 1970s and ’80s that pits Tony Stark against Steve Rogers in an epic face-off.

If Marvel doesn’t incorporate techniques like “Iron Fist,” “Bald Eagle Claw” and “Drunken Playboy Style” into its comics and films, then they’re missing out.

Chris Schweizer pays tribute to superheroes’ roots with ‘Marvel Pulp’

marvel-pulp-web-1

Superheroes sprang from the era of pulp icons like The Phantom and Doc Savage, and now cartoonist Chris Schweizer has some of today’s most popular costumed characters back to their roots.

In a project undertaken just for fun, the creator of The Crogan Adventures imagined some of the Avengers and X-Men as they might’ve appeared in the 1920s and 1930s in a series called “Marvel Pulp.”

In this Hulkbuster highchair, a little Avenger can face any threat

highchair-hulkbuster

Tony Star can don Hulkbuster armor to go toe to toe with the Incredible Hulk, but what defense do baby nerds have against other green threats, like pureed peas and Brussels sprouts? If you’re this lucky little girl, you have a Hulkbuster highchair.

It’s of course the work of Tim Baker Creations, which we’ve previously spotlighted for the Groot swing and Batmobile stroller. Presented by Super-Fan Builds to Iron Man devotee Natasha Vineyard and her daughter Amelia, the Hulkbuster is made from a high chair reinforced with a steel frame, and sculpted foam.

Many comic book and movie collectibles do little more than collect dust on a shelf, but this life-size Iron Man XLIII helmet replica looks good and serves an actual purpose: It’s a wireless Bluetooth speaker.

Available for preorder for $449, it comes equipped with a 15W, 82mm subwoofer and two 3W, 40mm speakers, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, and a 3.5mm jack, in case you just want to plug into your smartphone or MP3 player. It also features light-up eyes.

Artists sue Marvel, Disney over ‘Iron Man’ armor design

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.

iron-man-laser

Intrigued by the scene in Iron Man 2 in which Tony Stark cuts down drones closing in on him and War Machine using a laser fired from his glove, custom prop and gadget creator Patrick Priebe set out to make one of his own. And within three weeks, he had it, complete with working lasers, light-up palm and sound effects.

As a bonus, he can also eject spent “cartridges” from the top of the gauntlet.

If you thought Ashley Wood’s 3A Toys was finished with its Invincible Iron Man series of figures, think again. The company is back with another take on this Golden Avenger, this time the all-white Ghost Edition.

Standing 13.5 inches tall, the figure is fully articulated, with soft PVC covering the arms and legs. Six AG1 button cell batteries power the LED light-up eyes, palms and arc reactor.

This 4-foot animatronic Hulkbuster will destroy us (or our wallets)

animatronic-hulkbuster-crop

Clearly learning nothing from Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s cautionary tale about technology gone wrong, Comicave Studios has unveiled its 4-foot-tall animatronic Hulkbuster figure. Yes, animatronic.

As you can see in the video of the prototype below, the quarter-scale collectible features armor that automatically opens to reveal Iron Man inside.

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.

Enter Post-It notes.

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.
