Not bad at all, and pretty faithful to the original suit.
Oh, now that's damned sexy! Any pics of the regular armor surface yet or is it still just those CG Concepts from earlier of the later suit?
Oh now thats nice. Still gives me hope that this might be a good flick.
Can someone fill in the backstory on why he has to create this suit? I read something about Stark being a POW?
Nice find! And that looks absoloutely fantastic!
Now thats just beautiful!...
Yeah, basically i the comics Stark is in the far East somewhere overseeing the testing of some of his factorys WMD's.
His party get attacked, and he is injured by shrapnel near the heart. He is kidnapped by the bad guys who put him to work on weapons for them, along with another kidnapped oriental scientist.
Instead of creating weapons for this dictator dude, this other Scientist helps Stark create a chest plate that will keep Stark alive once his heart stops (which it will cuz the shrapnel is about to pierce his heart) and a suit of armour for protection.
Just as Stark dons the grey armour for the first time, and is charging it, they are interupted by the bad guys who up til now haven't been supervising these genius blokes (shades of the A-team here) and gives his life so Stark can fully charge up his suit, defeat the bad guys and call himself Iron-man, Starks bodyguard no one knew about.
A few issues in and the armour turned gold, then red and gold after that.
IIRC, he was in a POW camp. They found out he was a bit of a scientist or something and were making him build a bomb for them. He made a dummy bomb while making the armor suit for himself to escape..
EDIT: or just read the above post..
Looks good, I'll be watching it when it comes out.
NICE! Gives me hope for a decent looking movie, at least.
Too bad the figures, that and the later suit, will be 5".
I had no idea this was this far along.
Iron Man's not my favorite character, but he stands a good chance of being done well in a movie. Better than Ghost Rider, anyways.
Looks very nice.
Cool, I shall look forward to the release day.
Definitely looking good.
I love the patchwork look around the top left corner.
