Sideshow Toy Comic-Con Exclusive GUNMETAL GREY IRON MAN MARK 3 in 1/6 by Hot Toys

Sideshow Toys offers up a Comic-Con Exclusive GUNMETAL GREY color variant Iron Man Mark 3 1/6 action figure by Hot Toys for the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con in July! Looking abso-cool in gunmetal grey (duh) and a little battle-damaged distressed treatment for that extra awesome-touch, IMHO. I've been following the Gunmetal Grey Mark 3 for a while on my TRE-Blog, and this is the first time the images are fully revealed by Sideshow. (Full product specs to come during order period).

Two ways to pre-order this sweetness: via Comic-Con ATTENDEE and NON-ATTENDEE (Attendee = pickup at Comic Con itself / Non = delivered to you). And if you've not ordered from SSC, there is a slight price difference.

Order Dates / Price:
- ATTENDEE Priority Pre-Orders begin this Thursday, May 21st 2009, from 10:00AM to 12:00PM (Pacific Time) - Priced at US$179.99
- NON-ATTENDEE Priority Pre-Orders begin this Friday, May 22nd 2009, from 10:00AM to 12:00PM (Pacific Time) - Priced at US$189.99






Loads of folks have alluded this to being "War Machine", but I reckon if there would be one, it would be a screen-accurate version - IF and/or when it appears in Iron Man 2, IMHO :)

IRON MAN 2 OFFICIAL FIRST IMAGE

USA Today unveils the first "official" image from IRON MAN 2 [via MovieWeb] showing the illustrious inventor billionaire in the foreground (probably twittering and stressed that folks have been un-following him) and a row of Iron Man armor variants in the background = *COOL*

IRONMANFAN

Robert Downey Jr. returns as billionaire "Tony Stark" aka Iron Man (no secret identity issues here, as he outed himself in the first movie). Reoccurring characters include Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper-"I-nearly-slept-with-my-boss"-Potts, and Samuel L. Jackson as guest-star-at-credits'-end "Nick Fury" of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Terrance Howard has been replaced by Don Cheadle as "Col. James 'Rhodey' Rhodes" (aka "War Machine" in the comics). Amidst all the internet-rumours swirling thus far (I read but not post) - the sequel seemed to have taken on a more Soviet-flavour with the inclusion of Scarlett Johansson as super-spy "Natasha Romanoff" aka Black Widow, and Mickey Rourke as "Ivan" aka Whiplash (not Crimson Dynamo as everyone had hoped, it seems. And "Whiplash" is a woman in the comics). Sam Rockwell rounds out the "villains" as fellow-billionaire and Stark-Industries-competitor "Justin Hammer". [All info via IM2-IMDB credits].

Will be updating both TOYSREVIL and this dedicated-movie fanblog with anything and everything IRON MAN 2 movie and toy news to come - leading up to the film's premiere in 2010. PM me info and news at toysrevil@yahoo.com :)
