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.

This beautiful steampunk version of Iron Man is the work of artist Anthony Jones. He posted this backstory for his art on his tumblr:

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.

IronManSword-David

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.

See the rest of the designs after the break.

Robert Downey Jr. celebrated his 49th birthday on April 4th which was opening day for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Prior to the big day he said he planned to celebrate by inviting 50 kids over to his place to watch the movie with him, and this picture is the proof that he followed through on his promise.

Adding to the awesome that is Robert Downey Jr. is a story involving Jamie Foxx’s daughter. She had an Iron Man themed party and told everyone that she was personal friends with the real Tony Stark and that he’d be making an appearance. Foxx decided to ask Downey if there was any way he could come by, and not only did he say yes, he showed up with a bunch of Iron Man toys for the kids and stayed through the whole party.

Now that’s a superhero if ever there was one.
