Avengers: Infinity War‘s First Trailer Nearly Took My Breath Away

Suddenly, I wanted May 2018 to arrive sooner, all because of Avengers: Infinity War. We knew Marvel Studios’ biggest project to date, Avengers: Infinity War, will be grand in every ways. Grand in cast, you know, the coming together of all our favorite superheroes old and new. Grand in the settings and not to mention, the crazy FX and CGI that makes all the movie magic possible. We expected and anticipated those, but to see the first trailer, I am totally stoked and breathless at the same time. Completely overwhelmed is what I would use to describe how I felt after watching the 2 minute plus preview. Yes. It is just 2.24 minutes, but it feels like forever (in a good way).

Hot Toys 1/6 Scale Iron Man Hulkbuster Not Only Busts Hulk, But Will Bust Your Wallet Too

Where else the animatronic Hulkbuster by Comicave Studios is still in the prototyping stage, Hot Toys iteration of the green beast’s ass-kicking exoskeleton suit is already open for pre-order, but not without a catch; the pre-order will only be fulfil sometime in Q2 2016, That’s a good one year from now and who’s knows? Super Alloy Hulkbuster might be ready by then. Then again, since Hot Toys’ version won’t be made out of “Super Alloy” and is at half the size of the animatronic example, it is definitely more ‘affordable’ than the 4-foot steel beast, though is still cost a mighty $824.99. By no means cheap even by the standard of serious collectors. At 1/6 scale, Hot Toys Iron Man Hulkbuster stands a towering 21 inches (55 centimeters or nearly 2 feet) tall.

This 1/4 Scale Super Alloy Animatronic Hulkbuster Will Blow Your Mind

If you have been following Samuel L. Jackson on Facebook, you may have caught a glimpse of a scaled Hulkbuster in action. That’s right. We said ‘in action’ because this little big guy is actually articulated, well, at least on the upper body where it proudly demonstrates an extensive articulation and animatronic armor that opens up to reveal Stark’s in his Iron Man Mark 43 inside, just like in the movie and it also lights up like it should. The only thing missing is the green beast to slug out with. Man, this thing is insanely amazing. We can’t help but drool over it, like profusely. At this point, little is known about this impressive work of art, except that it is of “super alloy” and is built to 1/4 scale, and basing on the Avengerscharacters size chart (which stated the Hulkbuster as 11-foot; see chart below), this scaled model would be nearly 3 feet tall.

Gillette Razors by ‘Stark Industries’ Looks Dangerously Cool, Makes Us Scream ‘Shut Up and Take Our Money!’

In an ultimate marketing effort for the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron movie, Gillette has “collaborated” with fictional ‘Stark Industries’ to introduce four models of superheroes themed razors (aka shavers) that are based on, well, Avengers’ technology. Gillette reportedly said that they “allowed Stark Industries to take over its R&D department at World Shaving Headquarters to deliver an epic shave using Avengers-inspired technology.” The goal was to build a razor that could challenge Gillette Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall Technology, which is said to be the Boston-based company’s best shaver to date. Obviously, these so called Gillette x Stark Industries Shavers aren’t real, simply because Stark Industries is fictional (you know that, don’t you?) and many of its ‘technologies’ are as real as the fiction high-tech company, at least for now.

Official LEGO Marvel Superheroes: The SHIELD Helicarrier Has 2,995 Pieces, Available from March for $250

Ever since we stumble upon the custom LEGO Helicarrier that was posted on LEGO Ideas last year, we have been hoping that it would meet the required number of votes to be considered as an official set. As it turns out, it did in fact garnered the required 10,000 votes to be considered by LEGO review panel, but it looks like LEGO themselves are ahead of the game and has introduced the official LEGO Marvel Superheroes: The SHIELD Helicarrier UCS 76042. The ship, when put together, measures over 31 inches long, 17 inches wide and 11 inches tall, and packs a cool 2,995 pieces. Granted that the sub-3,000 pieces of brick is grossly shy of ysomt’s creation, it is still a behemoth nonetheless. Although, personally I was anticipating a Star Destroyer UCS kind of size, considering the Helicarrier is actually a massive flying contraption.

With Your Help, This Awesome LEGO Iron Man Hulkbuster May Get Considered By LEGO

We all know Tony Stark’s Iron Man Hulkbuster is going to appear in the second Avengers flick, The Age of Ultron. I am sure Iron Man’s fans, us included, are looking forward to it and being LEGO fans ourselves, we are also looking forward to a LEGO, preferably a UCS variant, of the Hulkbuster. There will be, definitely, but just that it probably won’t be UCS anyways. So your best bet is to vote up custom LEGO builder Jon San Pedro’s LEGO Iron Man Hulkbuster Project on LEGO Ideas. This project was submitted back in May 2013 (when it was still known as Cuusoo) and have since received over 7,000 supporters. However, it needs 10,000 votes to be considered by the Danish toy maker as an official set. That said, it has 92 days left on the calendar, which means if all of us fans want to see this beauty getting a shot as an official LEGO set, we all have to put in our votes.
