    First I've seen it.

    I find it a bit surprising that they're going back to the round arc reactor (though I like it better than the triangular design.) Wonder if there's a particular reason for it.

    Also don't care for the silver on the upper thighs. It's nitpicky, I know.

    I actually like the new design, with some War machine parts.
    I still prefer the Mark IV, i don't know if it's me but i really don't dig the grey parts..

    Why do they need to put grey again -,-
    The round RT return is a good news though, looks nicer imo :)

    I wonder if the pose indicates a unibeam blast in the film?

    It's definitely starting to grow on me. When I first saw the raw statue I thought the MkIV and VI were the best designs, and I still do, but the MkVII is definitely catching up quickly. My biggest complaints are like everyone else's - the metallic silver on the thighs. Someone said the rumor is that this suit was designed for space flight, so perhaps the design team added those thigh components and the very obvious booster-looking components on the back reach over the shoulders. As for compliments - I LOVE the new back and I like the new chest piece, the designers were able to add more complexity w/o ruining the overall design.

    From a pure design standpoint, it's not my fave, but I'm quite sure that when the movie hits and this suit shows its capabilities and how those silver components work into that, this will be THE badass armor to own out of Tony's collection.

    good stuff, i totally agree with dualedge about the circle reactor and the silver, but i like the more sleek curves to the calves and thighs. although the mk vi is still my favorite this suit is a beauty.

    Pretty much thought the exact same thing. The silver just looks out of place, and I do like the round reactor more.

    Still not my fav a little better than the 6 and I am so glad they went back to the round unibeam. Still like the Mark3 best though. :)

    Glad to see the circular chest symbol.

    Put this together for comparison-

    I prefer the rounder shoulder pads. The flat tops make him look like a football player.

    The tall "Traps" armor looks awkward and "stuck-on" in my opinion. Not integrated into the over design.

    On the topic of the shoulders, I actually think the look is a bit Gundam-ish, especially when you factor in the silver and red pods that go on the lats extending to the upper back. Again, still a bit iffy on this design but a cool evolution of the Mk3, just not the best one out there.

    Thanks for putting that together, Nick. It's good to see that the designers decided to give Tony some quads, again. I couldn't stand that skinny look. I'm not completely sold on the silver, but it's not killing me. I really dig how they raised the ab plates and made them go higher up the torso; gives it a bit of a reptilian look. I've very glad the triangle is gone...

    Glad they went back to the round unibeam but don't care too much for the silver thighs. Koto usually makes their figurines and statues a tiny bit on the skinny side though. Can't wait to see it on screen

    well i will be the lone wolf to say i liked the Triangle armor. It had been a circle for decades and a was a nice change. Plus it was actually that way in the comics so I thought it was cool that the movie gave a nod to people who actually read the iron man comics.

    I like bulkiness of the new armor. As if it is his heavy armor. I'm glad they are taking risks / changing his armor so it doesn't get stale. Again another throw back to the hall of armor days when Tony had a different suit for each situation.

    I noticed on the drawn pics floating around the web that Nick was gracious enough to consolidate and post on here that the silver parts on the statue have a more grayish tone in those images, and looks an even darker gray in the live shot of RDJ on the Empire cover (though that shot is probably part CG).

    If they make this similar to the War Machine gray in the Avengers movie, I actually think that will improve the armor's look significantly.

    Not crazy about this one. The silver on the thighs, shoulders and the abs look way too long. It will grow on me as did the original suit.
