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.

Skurge and Amora, the deadliest combo Thor has ever faced, are now painted and that much closer to be available to order from Bowen Designs. Randy Bowen has shared this image over at StatueMarvels.com. Executioner is a digital sculpt by Keith Kopinski, Enchantress is a traditional sculpt by Mike Cusinelli, paints by Randy Lambert and bases by Randy Bowen.
Notice the removable M-16 in Skurge’s base? A nice nod to the classic storyline by Walt Simonson!
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.
Sideshow shared the sneak here.

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.
