Tony Stark has never stop innovating. The fictional super hero in exoskeleton suit has developed more armored suits than your digits can count, but if we were to single out one suit from recent time worthy of a special mention, it would be the shape-changing armor which appeared in 2015’s Invincible Iron Man comics. Why? Because, it can turn into a samurai-like armor or even a Hulkbuster in a snap without having to suit out and suit up, and also because the brilliant minds over at Chemical Attack and Japanese toy maker, Sentinel Toys, has given this bleeding edge armor a Japanese makeover and the result is absolutely fabulous.

You know what’s the craziest thing we see this week? Nope. Not the 2016 Presidential Election. This. A video of a life-size Iron Man Mark 43 suit that opens up in a way like it did in the movie. Seriously, it does that and apparently, this is a real-deal and not some CGI bullshit used in the movies. And also, it appeared to be officially licensed by Marvel. Called Iron Man Mark XLIII Movable Armor Version, this movie-accurate replica of the Iron Man suit was made by Shenzhen-based toy maker, The Toys Asia, and it boasts incredible details as you can see in the video below. Continue reading Wow. This Life-size Motorized Iron Man Suit Opens Up Like The Real Thing!
Iron Man exoskeleton suit is not an impossibility, but to defy gravity and zip across the sky like the fictional superhero, we all know is pure sci-fi fantasy. Based on the technology known to mankind today, there’s no way that a suit like such can harness enough thrust to propel a full-grown man with hundreds of pounds armor a few feet above ground, much less into the sky. Lets not get us started with the stress crushing on the arms and legs by the hand and foot thrusters. Despite the obvious, it doesn’t stop backyard engineer and YouTuber The Hacksmith from exploring the possibility – at least for the liftoff part, that is. As part of his quest for an Iron Man-like suit, he is cracking his brain over how to make himself liftoff like Tony Stark did in the movie. Continue reading Seriously, Folks, This Is How NOT To Fly Like An Iron Man
Post-2008 most cosplayed comic character is probably Iron Man and so far, most of them are impressive in their own right. But this one here, the Iron Man Mk.39 Starbooster Cosplay Suit by YouTuber Ehv Props & Dutch Props, stood out not only in the detail department but also functionality, well, sort of. Sort of because we all know that outfitting this rather underrated suit, or any other Iron Man suit for that matter, with the functions depicted in movies and comics is not possible and it most certainly can’t take to the sky, but at least it has ‘functional’ hand and jetpack thrusters to mimic the effect which makes it more ‘accurate’. Continue reading DIY Iron Man Mk.39 Starbooster Cosplay Suit Has “Functional” Hand Thrusters
DC Comics and Marvel never cross paths, but imagine if they did and super villains like the Joker got his hands on Tony Stark’s super suit (like many Marvel’s villains did in history), well, then in that case, this is what it will look like: an Iron Joker. Created by master of over imaginative (but crazy awesome) action figure customization, Sam Kwok Workshop, this Iron Man Mark V x Joker mashup started life as two different action figures: a 1/6th scale Hot Toys Iron Man Mark V and a Dark Knight Joker figure. After putting the two through Sam Kwok’s magical touches, an armored suited Joker is born and believe me, it is one bad Joker that the Dark Knight won’t want to mess with. There’s no Kryptonite to counter it and it flies, supposedly, unlike poor little Batty who can’t. Boo hoo. Continue reading Iron Man Mark V x Joker Action Figure Mashup Is One Bat-ass Kicking Creation
Countless people must have cosplayed Iron Man with their own homemade suits, but if you want to turn heads, then you probably have to do what Killerbody did: spend two years in creating a movie-accurate, wearable armor, and boy, does it look seriously authentic and comes outfitted with the requisite LED lights and pop up parts, just like the real thing. In fact, the suit so ‘real’ that Killerbody decided to go ahead and had it officially licensed. The suit, Iron Man 3 Mark VII Life-sized High-end Replica Costume Set, as it is referred to as, is as close as one can get to the real deal and by real deal, we do mean the movie prop. Continue reading Seriously, Why Buy An Iron Man Statue When You Can Wear The Actual Suit?
You have seen the awesome ‘cute version’ Floating Iron Man Mk II Suit by Beast Kingdom, now meet the Mark III suit, also from the movie Iron Man 3. Like the Mark II, it features an intricately detailed suit, but being Mark III it is now dressed in the iconic hotrod red and gold, in chrome finish. As before, it comes with a powered magnetic levitation base to enable the figure to assume the “flying” pose without the need for a physical stand. While the levitation may be mere millimeters off the lighted, arc reactor-inspired base, the effect is pretty amazing, but effort to get it to actually float is another story. We will do a review of the silver version soon. Continue reading Iron Man Mk III Amor from Iron Man 3 Joins the Magnetic Floating Series
If you ask me if I believe that Iron Man suit will ever become a reality someday, I’d say ‘no’. Knowing how flight works, that dream exoskeleton suit kind of defies logic. But anyways, I guess I will never know. God knows if someday a real life Tony Stark will actually make an arc reactor that can generate the immense power required to propel such a suit. Until then, suiting up in an Iron Man suit is a dream and will remain as a cosplayer thing, or in this instance, your iPhone 6’s thing. Meet the latest Iron Man suit for your precious iDevice, faithfully replicating Iron Man Mk XLIII’s chest armor as seen in this summer’s blockbuster, Marvel’s Avenger 2: Age of Ultron. Continue reading You Can Now Suit Up Your iPhone 6 with Iron Man MK XLIII Armor… Case

Yup. It is happening. There’s going to be an Iron Man Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge coming your way, though details are still foggy at this point. Apparently, the South Korean electronic giant have posted a teaser image to its official Twitter account a couple of days ago, showing the special edition handset’s packaging. However, that post was removed for reasons unknown to us. The lone image was an obvious indication of the imminent arrival of the Iron Man-themed Galaxy S6 Edge. No images of the handset were offered, but it isn’t hard to imagine what it will look like. If anything, it would be the iconic hot rod red and gold treatment.
