    Jul 23, 2009, 4:02 AM - Iron Man 2 Armor - mk3 VERSUS mk4 #1

    Good suit pics are starting to spread from SDCC09 and thought it'd be nice to do a comparison to the first movie suit.

    New suit on left and old suit on Right-



    Pretty cool stuff overall. Some of the changes are strange but honestly I'm suprised they didn't change it more to differentiate the new movie suit from the last.

    I was hesitant when I saw it on the Entertainment Weekly cover, but I actually do like the new suit a lot more than the old. The level of detail really makes it pop.

    If they make Iron Man 3 (which I'm sure they will) they will probably have the red and white (silver?).

    I don't think there were many variations in color when it came to Tony's "normal" suit.

    It would be cool to see the all black stealth suit.

    They needed to make it look just different enough from the original that you'd need to buy the new figure....and just similar enough that when he goes for the super-duper, all silvery- blue, "ice" version at the end of the movie you'd have to buy that, too.

    Of course, odds are pretty good Favreau would never go all Joel Schumaker on us like that.

    I think the changes are all geared towards making it more comfortable for RDJ. No more metal collar bone looking piece, they widened the hips and abdomen a little, changed the crotch section. Looks more solid, I like it.

    Looks like pretty much everything is changed to me just at a quick glance.

    Yargh. I'm getting jazzed about seeing this new suit in action.

    Can't wait.

    I prefer the look of the mark 3 over the new mark 4, myself.

    I'm with Mr Fett on this one. Not sure I like the changes to the upper legs.

    It's not "Ironman"! It's "Iron Man"! He's an IRON MAN!
    It's not his name, he's not Jewish... it's not like he's "Phil Ironman"!

    i like the new suit
    except for the calf area
    it looks like an after thought like it was just bolted on in a hurry
    otherwise i love it
    i might change my mind when i see the suit from other angles or actually moving
    cant wait for this film

    without seeing them side by side I doubt I could have even picked out anything that was different...

    I like everything about the mk4 except the abdominal section. Too many dark spots and the little gold accents on it draw your eye to it, and it doesn't flow as well as that section did on the old suit.

    One detail I like on th MK 4 are the gauntlets. The "pad" on the back of the hand extend over the knuckles. This may suggest the use of some super powered boxing at some point in the film.

    Totally
    But it's always a good one to shoehorn into any comic chat round these parts.
    Likewise, Black Sabbath gigs have been ruined for my best mate due to "Does whatever an iron can!" gags

    As for the new suit - I like both equally, I guess... The new one looks like what it is, a slightly refined version of the old. Can't really see where any of the changes are going to improve performance or poseabi-... Sorry, maneuverability.
