  • Crowdfunded Iron Man Suit Project Seeking 5K Pre-Orders For Production Run

    Crowdfunded Iron Man Suit Project Seeking 5K Pre-Orders For Production Run

    Speaking as someone who’s considered spending nearly $1,000 on a full Stormtrooper costume multiple times, I’m very interested in a new crowdfunding project designed to build and mass produce a complete Iron Man suit with electronic features like an automatic sliding faceplate. The Iron Man Mark III project from Iron Man Factory, which must violate at least 80 licensing… Read More

  • Video: A Scary Realistic Iron Man Mark I Suit


    Detroit doesn’t need a Robocop statue. Hell no. They need guys dressed in Tony Stark’s first Iron Man suit patrolling the street. Even this recreation looks awesome and weighs in at 110 lbs thanks to the Ethylene-vinyl acetate frame, “working” Arc Reactor and battery-powered fans. It’s just too bad the city couldn’t afford it even though the Chinese… Read More

  • Video: A Truly Functional DIY Iron Man Mark V Briefcase Suit

    There are cosplayers and then there’s this guy, or as he calls himself, the Real Tony Stark. His homemade Mark V armor is nearly good enough to pass as a┬álegitimate┬ámovie prop. The man even built-in glowing eyes, a lighted arc reactor and sound effects powered by an Arduino controller. The video after the jump doesn’t exactly do the whole project justice. Jump over to his 89… Read More

  • The.best.Iron.Man.costume.ever


    Reader Anthony Le sent in his entry for the costume contest and I just had to share it with you guys. It’s an amazing replica of the Iron Man XD suit made of plastic and rivets. Anthony even goes to his local Children’s Hospital in it to cheer up the kids. Anthony is a truly geek who inspires awe. I based the build from this picture from comic-con. The Costume is 100% home made… Read More

  • First look at Mickey Rourke as Whiplash in 'Iron Man 2'

    In Jon Favreau’s upcoming sequel to Iron Man, Mickey Rourke will be going head to head with Robert Downey Jr. as Whiplash aka Ivan Vanko. The Russian “has constructed his own version of a suit,” says Favreau. It’s unclear whether or not Whiplash will be the same character as he is in the comics (Justin Hammer’s weapons designer), but Favreau likes to mix things up… Read More

  • Rumor: Motorola "IRONMAN" to rock Android?

    While that certainly doesn’t look like any Android UI we’ve seen, BoyGeniusReport is hearin’ whispers that the handset you see up above is one of Motorola’s first outings in Android territory. Codenamed, nicknamed, or just plain name-named (they’re not sure which) “Ironman”, Motorola is supposedly aiming at a Q3 release. Specific specs are absent, but… Read More

Gaijin can get the set via stores such as Amazon Japan or CD Japan (where it’s not yet listed though). Read More

The $130 retail set (but available for much less on Amazon), which includes all three Godfather films, won Best of Show and Best Catalog Title.

  • Weekend project: Build an Iron Man helmet

    Sure, Halloween is over but that doesn’t mean you can’t spend your lonely weekend constucting an Iron Man helmet. Instructiable should give you enough info but this might not be for fiberglass or Bondo virgins. Still, you have to start somewhere and if you’re good ‘nough, you too could be rocking an Iron Man helmet just like the winner above. Read More

  • Blu-ray Iron Man too popular for its own good, caused BD-Live connectivity problems

    Having problems accessing the BD-Live content of Iron Man? Turns out you’re not alone, and Paramount thinks it knows what’s going on: the movie is just too gosh darn popular! The movie, which was released on Blu-ray last Tuesday, is so popular, Paramount says, that the record number of people trying to access the BD-Live content have overloaded the servers. And when the servers… Read More

It uses a dual-region radio to automatically sync with atomic clocks around the world.

  • For some reason, Dell and Paramount are preloading PCs with Iron Man

    So when you are configuring your next Dell Inspiron, Studio, or XPS system, there is going to be a $20 option to have Dell preload Iron Man on your machine. Yup. Great movie but a little strange business model. Word is that Dell is trying to get more and more studios signed on to expand the selection past this one movie. If Dell is to have their way, you should be able to purchase a slew of… Read More

  • Iron Man concept pieces and set shots released

    Conveniently timed for the DVD/BluRay release of Iron Man that just so happens to be going down in 3 days, 37 oh-so-awesome pieces of concept art and set stills have wound up online. Besides being some outright impressive work, the concept art is a shining example of how well even the most complex of artistic visions can be translated to the big screen. Check out shot three for example… Read More

  • Unboxing: Blu-ray "Iron Man" Ultimate Edition

    This is a gadget blog not a movie blog! Now that that’s out of the way, I’d like to share with my fellow comic book geeks the unboxing of the Blu-ray “Iron Man” Ultimate Edition. I have yet to pop it in and give it a whirl, but I figured an unboxing would suffice for now. Check out the gallery after the jump and the list of goodies you can expect from the 2-disc set.

  • Are you nerdy enough to rock this DIY Iron Man arc reactor?


    I triple-dog-dare you to wear this out to a nice bar one night. I guarantee it’ll get you ladies. Hey, it worked for Tony Stark. It helps if you grow a goatee too, like this joker. Hey, he looks like a nice guy, I’m not going to mock him, but really this is some seriously nerdy stuff here. It ain’t easy, either — you have to wire up your own LEDs and mold the plastic… Read More
