Review: 76006 Iron Man Extremis Sea Port Battle

1. Overview

This is a hard one to write an opening to. I could talk about how Iron Man 3 is now one of the highest grossing films of all time, taking in well over a billion smackeroos. I could prattle on about my view of the film and how I feel that jives with box office totals, or predict how Tony’s journey through the film could have lasting consequences for the future of the MCU. I’m not going to do any of that, because I’d prefer to not think too hard about the movie at all. It’ll be better for me that way. Instead, a novel idea…
Let’s take a look at the set!

Iron Man 3 Posters Get The LEGO Treatment

LEGO Iron Man 3 Poster 1

It only took me about 48 hours to post these new LEGO-ized Iron Man 3 posters after they popped up on ComicBookMovie.com on Saturday, but better late than never. Of course, what caught my eye was the unwarranted inclusion of the Iron Patriot armour in both posters. I hate the thought that he’d pop up as a hard to get exclusive, but the hope is alive either way.

Hall Of Armour, Complete With Two Turntables And A Microphone

Iron Man - Hall of Armour

With all the Iron Man suits floating around now, I’ve been calling for MOCs of Tony Stark’s Hall of Armour and have found the first one to tickle my fancy. Jared Chan has put together a nice rendition of the hall as seen in the upcoming film and has taken pictures of it as presented in many promotional shots. Tony may be a rich, egotistical engineering genius, but he’s still a guy and what self respecting man cave comes without tunes?

Two Turntables & A Microphone

Seriously, I don’t know. I’m more of a rumpus room kind of guy.
Though I do love the term LEGOratory

IM3 “Unlock The Armors” Suits Fully Revealed

Heartbreaker

I’m just finally getting around to updating the post on the “Unlock The Armor” game from Facebook. While there were disappointingly only two more suits, the interesting part is the images of the full armours head to toe that were also revealed. This is the best look we’ve seen of some of these suits and should help builders and customizers alike. I’d hoped to get a good look at the arms of the “Red Snapper” and was amused and delighted at the different design. It’s nice to see Tony is working towards having a suit for any occasion as he has in the comics for years. His on screen OCD is finally showing.

Review: 76008 Iron Man Vs. The Mandarin Ultimate Showdown

1. Overview

Ultimate Showdown. The name inspires visions of an epic battle between the Armoured Avenger and his megalomaniacal archenemy that would tax the limits of the two foes abilities and resources, ending in chaos, destruction and a spectacular defeat for one side or the other.

Alternately: This.

Men Of Iron

Just a quick shot I took of all the official suits while working on my Iron Man 3 reviews, which should be along in the next day or so. I’ve been itching to see them all together since the IM3 sets were announced. I’m just wondering if I should do one of my reviews as a synopsis of the film based ONLY on the trailer and these three sets. Could be interesting. Crazy, but interesting.

Now to start building my Hall of Armour.

Legohaulic’s “Brute” Strength

Iron Man 3 Hulkbuster Armor

LEGO isn’t waiting until the highly anticipated Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3rd to release it’s sets based on the property and the fans aren’t waiting to build either. Legohaulic built this version of what many are calling the “Hulkbuster” armour as a commission and the overall shape of the body is great. Seeing it in the trailer bust through the shipping containers in a full tilt dash reminded me much more of Marvel’s unstoppable Juggernaut. The only info attached to the original concept art where it appeared in the standard red and gold described it as “Brute” armour and that certainly fits. Its chunky design, hunched back and forearm hazard stripes (not included on the model, but that would have been impressive to pull off in purist form) indicate this guy was built less for busting monsters and more for Tony’s heavy lifting. I expect to see a great many suits pop up when the movie comes out and everyone has had a good look, but the early bird gets the worm.

With suits of armour in the trailer resembling the Stealth, Deep Space, Silver Centurion and other classic looks, which would you most like to see in LEGO form? Brick-built or minifig? I’m still down for Iron Patriot, but I’d take a Silver Centurion any way you build it as well…
