The LEGO leaks just keep coming. New photos shared on the Eurobricks forum reveal what could be a close-up look at some minifigs that will be part of Avengers: Age of Ultron sets. There’s Ultron (labeled as an Ultron Drone) that looks like it’s part of the Iron Man vs. Ultron set we saw in an earlier leak, Iron Man, and Iron Legion Drones which appear to be the part of the Avengers Tower set. I have to say that they did a great job making the usually cute minifig concept creepy with the Ultron design.

Avengers: Age of Ultron doesn’t hit theaters until May 2015, but Hot Toys is already ahead of the game when it comes to collectibles. They recently posted several photos of their new Age of Ultron Iron Man Mark XLIII figure. It’s sixth scale and movie accurate. As usual, the face sculpt looks so much like Robert Downey, Jr. that it’s almost unbelievable.
This figure is made from diecast metal, and here are some of the sexy details:
The movie-accurate Mark XLIII Collectible Figure is highly detailed and specially crafted based on the image of Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark/Mark XLIII in Avengers: Age of Ultron, featuring a newly painted Tony Stark helmeted head sculpt, metallic red, gold and silver armor with weathered effects, LED light-up functions, and a specially designed diorama base with a damaged Ultron Mark I. A special edition will be available for selected markets which includes a LED lighted battle damaged helmet as bonus accessory.
No ship date is mentioned, but you can go ahead and add it to your 2015 Christmas wish list.

After donating his heart to save his only son Jarvis, Jarvis devoted his life to engineering to bring his father back to life. Picking up his father’s work, he found an alternative power source that could bring him back. Preserving his body in a deep freeze incubator, Jarvis spent 10 years of his young adult life to engineer a mechanized suit using the power of steam to breathe life to his father.
Introducing Gentlemen Stark.
The story makes the image even more striking, and makes us wish Jones would illustrate the entire saga.

No, Iron Man didn’t have a sword that you somehow missed amid all the action, but what if he did have one? Man at Arms: Reforged expands on the amazing replicas that blacksmith Tony Swatton has created by imaging some nonexistent weapons and making them in the forge. This time, they create a sword for Iron Man and it definitely looks like something Tony Stark would love to have in his arsenal.

Artist Eman Jeman, a.k.a. Clog Two, has illustrated a very cool series depicting Iron Man and War Machine in different armor than we’re used to. The “Iron Giants” drawings feature Tony Stark dressed in various styles of suits, including the samurai one pictured above. It’s detailed and beautiful, and I’d love to see a cosplayer bring it to life.

In the latest edition of Comic Book Resources’ The Line It Is Drawn series, they asked their artists to think of some dream teams for superhero titles. Artist Axel Medellin came up with the perfect pairing: Leonardo da Vinci on an Iron Man book. He could have designed Tony Stark’s suit of armor and probably even have made it better. Yeah, I said it.
Medellin created a series of illustrations imagining what the designs would look like, and I’m completely sold on this concept.
