I believe the technical term is “screwed”.
Sideshow has revealed the full figure of Ultron on Throne Comiquette, including the exclusive version. There must be some deep-seeded desire amongst fanboys to rule because character son thrones is a very popular motif amongst statues. Then again, perhaps it isn’t so deep.
The rogue sentient robot is bent on conquering humanity, and your collection. This time we’ve given him his classic look – and his own throne. At 1:5 scale, our Classic Ultron is over a foot tall seated on his elaborate throne and features a striking adamantium paint application with bold red accents.
The regular and Exclusive versions of Classic Ultron on Throne Comiquette will feature the maniacal baddie holding Ant-Man’s head in his right hand. The Exclusive version will also include an additional switch out right hand, holding Vision’s head.

Sideshow has shared another sneak of Ultron. And they have given the project a title – Ultron on Throne. This comiquette poses an odd question. Is Ultron on the throne or is Ultron actually the throne? This appears to be an homage or interpretation of Ultron-6.
You know what? I’m pretty sure these are simply the ramblings of a fanboy attempting to apply comic book logic to art. When really I should just be going “Cool!”
Not sure what to expect, but so far it is definitely intriguing. Ultron is one of the great Marvel villains. He is kind of a mess emotionally, especially for a robot. His motives are always changing, but his methods are pretty consistent. He doesn’t really know what he wants, but he is pretty sure that humanity needs to be destroyed in order for him to get whatever it is.

You have to ask yourself sometimes, just how much does Marvel owe the success of their new film universe to Robert Downey Jr.? Obviously so many important elements have had to come together, but he has to have made things so much easier for Marvel. He always appears to enjoy playing Iron Man. I have to think that his enthusiasm has convinced other actors to buy in and enjoy the ride.
The newest trailer is even more evidence that he has a grasp on his superhero character like few actors before him have. Every indication is that he and Shane Black will be delivering a wickedly good movie.
On Sunday we will be getting a new Iron man 3 trailer during the Super Bowl. It costs approximately $3-4 million dollars for every thirty seconds of ad time, so I cannot begrudge Marvel for putting out a teaser for this event.
To make things even more interesting they have released a new poster featuring Tony Stark plummeting to Earth. I love this poster. It is very rare these days to see a poster that both depicts a potential scene from the movie but also delivers on the theme the film generates.

Hot Toys has shared the Iron Man 3: Tony Stark Limited Edition Collectible Figurine on their Facebook page. As always the level of detail and extras is staggering. That said, I hope the head sculpt is just a prototype. After all the Tony Stark figures they have done it is odd that the newest version is the least accurate likeness. I suspect they will correct it before it is released.
