Hot Toys Mark VII Stealth Iron Man

It amazes me at just how deep down the Iron Man rabbit hole Hot Toys manages to go, and I imagine they find folks only too eager to drop down there with them. Those high end collectors bank rolling full “Halls of Armor” with $200+ 1:6 scale figures are a community of folks I’m sure I’ll never mix with, but I can’t argue how gorgeous the toys are.

The Mark VII Stealth Iron Man is from the first Avengers film and looks striking in this new dark paint scheme. Check out the newly revealed images below. Pre-Order information sure to follow.

No it’s not G.I. Joe news, but it’s still awesome – Avengers animated shorts online!

For a while now I’ve been talking up the apparent wonders of the upcoming Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes animated series.  Although I’ve never been a huge Avengers comic fan, I love Iron Man, Captain America, Hawkeye, and a lot of the Avenger individuals.  This cartoon promises a large cast of favorite characters and looks like an awesome ramped up action series in the vein of Justice League.

While the series itself debuts October 20th on DisneyXD, starting TODAY, DisneyXD.com and Marvel.com are debuting some five minute “shorts” with a focus on the individuals.  First up to bat is Iron Man!

LOVE this.  Really love the looks of this.  With G.I. Joe: Renegades and Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, it looks like this could be a great fall for action animation!
