Now you can have Tony Stark do SCIENCE with this Hot Toys figure

You might have gleaned from my trip to SDCC that Hot Toys hasn't been stingy when it comes to making Iron Man figures. As long as there are variants to make, companies are going to make them. Their latest will be Tony Stark, ...

Diamond Select Toys' Marvel.com and Disney-exclusive Marvel Select Iron Man is currently available for order through and will be available through Marvel.com the Disney Store later this month.

The 7-inch tall figure is billed as having 16 points of articulation and apparently sports an incredibly shiny paint job. He comes with a large display base depicting what appears to be a severed plane wing. By placing Bleeding Edge Iron Man at the top of the plume of smoke, it looks like the figure has punched his way through the wing.

Apparently debuting in Invincible Iron Man #25, the Mark 38 armor consists of millions of nano-machines stored inside Tony Stark's body, which exit through the pores of his skin using repulsor technology to form a protective layer over his entire body. As such, when Tony's not wearing the suit the suit apparently wears him.

DST's Marvel Select Bleeding Edge Iron Man can be ordered for US$25. Be sure to check out the photo gallery for additional images.

Spider-Man, Catwoman, and Iron Man will be the newest inductions to Square-Enix's Variant Play Arts Kai line and are some of the most exciting designs to grace the line. If that wasn't enough, fans can look forward to a Final Fantasy Creatures Kai set (featuring Siren, one of the Bahumuts, etc), the recently announced PAK Hatsune Miku, many historical Batmans, and so much more.

The major highlight here might be the VPAK Spider-Man, which sports what may be a very neat armored design. That certainly doesn't take anything away from Catwoman, however, whose crazy design I didn't even recognize at first. Oh, and what's that? An awesome set of optional attachments for VPAK Iron Man? Could there really be this much want all in one place?

Be sure to check out the gallery for a closer look.

[UPDATE: New image]

Hidemi Matsuzuka has tweeted two images of Square-Enix's Variant Play Arts Kai Iron Man. This marks the first Marvel character released in the Variant Play Arts Kai line.

Square-Enix has always excelled at producing armored characters/robots and the VPAK Iron Man is a neat example. Although the design isn't drastically different from versions of Iron Man that we've seen in the past, the figure sports a black deco (in addition to his usual gold/yellow and red combo) and his arc reactor is now a crystal. It's both very Iron Man and yet fairly distinct. Although I'm not as much of an Iron Man fan in recent years (the explosion of popularity combined with the inundation of merchandise has curbed much of my enthusiasm), I think I like this design.

The tweets don't list where these photos were taken, but I'm guessing (from the timing) that it was probably at NYCC so we may have our own coverage soon.

Yes, there's a third Revol Mini. Yes, it's an Iron Man.

Revol Mini is a line that isn't even out yet, but it's already starting to feel old to me. Yes, there was a new version of Snake. Then it was coupled with Kinnikuman, which while he is a great figure, it's one that has been d...
