    (this should probably be put in movie discussion.. woops)

    I've been wondering what everyone thinks about the changes in the Iron Man Movie suits.
    What suit is your favorite and why?

    My favorite is the Mark 2 (before it is painted red and gold.) Second would be the mark 5.

    It seems most people like to make the mark 4 and 6 suit and I just don't like it at all. I don't like the blockyness and the huge thighs and smaller chest proportion.

    I don't think they ever actually made a real life size version of this suit. It was just 3d animated in the movie wasn't it?

    What's your opinion on the Mark 7? I actually like this better than the mark 4 and 6 but I still love the mark 2 and 3 more.

    MK 3 - love it - classic suit, great tribute for comic version, very good proportions, exclusive look.

    MK 4 - very nice but with thin legs (for example): http://blogdebrinquedo.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Iron-Man-Mark-IV-Secret-Project-01.jpg and it's very mechanical look like, but as you see in figure model (everything is possible for build :) ) so.. yea, MK 4 is very nice but in figure model shapes.

    MK 5 and 6 :/ not my story bro.

    MK 7 hmmm very.... "heroicable" shapes but wtf is wrong with shoulders.

    Conclusions: My favorites are MK 3 and 4.

    Used to like the MkIV the best, now the MkIII simply because it's a classic and all the other designs are an evolution from that.

    My order of preference:
    Mk3
    Mk4
    Mk6
    Mk7

    What's wrong with you guys?

    Mark 5 is the best. No debate.

    Wow seems more people like the original look of the mark 3/2 than I thought!

    Oh really? what is the story behind it? I don't really like his free hand style work but I do like the motorized parts (faceplate/back flaps)

    His newest suit looks more legit than any of his others.


    Lol k I threw it up there in the thread




    I like it just as much as the mark 3. But it's weird because it just seems so different from the others as if it should have it's own category.

    Oh man, I love the mark VI, but the Mark VII is just down right elegant.
    Not that it matters, the Mark III is the best IMO

    I think that mark 5 is the most interesting, you show up at a convention with that you will stand out for the other iron men. My personal opinion. But mark two is great as well.
    They all have there own unique style, choose the one you like the most after all your the one that has to wear the thing! :)

    mark 7 looks awesome

    but why not build a non movie suit? everyone seems to build the ones from the movie, but not many comic ones. personally i think the extremis suit to be the coolest

    MK5 looks pretty sweet to me as well. But the I would paint it differently. Also, why is the MK7 a circle again? Where is his TRIANGLE!!?!?!?

    i like the way how the suit evolved. i pretty much like all of them except for the mark 6( even though i made one.) i like it for the fact that they were trying to showcase a stronger look to the armor with the look of a better "ticker" (arc) but it still pretty much the mark 4 that just changed chest plate.

    and i like the mark 7 for the fact that they followed the traditional avenger armor with the jet packs. i think that alone gave justice itself and heck its new so we still dont know what it does and it excites me more. :D

    Mk III, Mk I, Mk II, Though if they put the triangle RT from the Mk VI on the Mk III, i'd be in heaven

    Has anyone done a Mk V build? I've never seen one (granted I've never looked) so I wonder if there's just not enough references to really make one.

    Also no love for War Machine? :(

    My favorite two are the Mk VI because it just looks amazing and if its good enough to be in two movies (IM2 and Avengers) then its obviously top of the line :)

    And the Mk VII! The paint scheme is great and it looks like it could do some damage...
