Sideshow Collectibles seriously don’t want me to breathe right, do they? These images of the ‘Stealth’ version of their Iron man Movie statue surfaced a while back, and I cannot wait to get the thing in one of our display cabinets, as it is going to look incredible with the lights bouncing off that finish. Plus, the thing comes with built in lights, and while that looks incredibly cheesy on many statues, on this one it is an absolute plus. Check this baby out;


I’m so pleased the decision was made to recreate one of the teaser poster poses instead of just having old Shellhead stood looking morose. He may have a letterbox for a mouth, but he does look stunning in these preliminary photos. Granted, the final product may well differ from these initial snaps, but Sideshow rarely, if ever, let anything substandrard out of their doors. Actually, this piece has the potential to be one of the coolest things they have produced in a while.

There have been people asking whether or not we will actually see Iron Man in this guise onscreen once the movie is out, and the answer is…sort of. If you check out the recent TV spot that premiered at the Superbowl, you do catch a glimpse of the MKII armour before it gets the red and gold finish. Onscreen it looked more chrome than the blue tint in these images, but its certainly close.

Excitement continues to grow here amongst the denizens of TLPS and as this movie has been a long time coming, and at last the technology is available to do it justice. The movie is shaping up to be something of a huge event, which isn’t bad seeing as it is being directed by the guy that played Foggy in Daredevil!
