Disneyland's Iron Man 3 Hall of Armors

Emilie Noetzel is an excellent photographer that has been covering events like Wondercon and San Diego Comic Con for years now, for Idle Hands, delivering killer pics of all the collectibles you love so dearly. And some jealousy of her has no bounds. NO BOUNDS!!! Just the other day she dropped in on Disneyland and said hello to all the Iron Man 3 it was nothing. "OHai armors. Just passing through. Maybe I'll take a couple of pictures. Lovely. Now show me something exciting, please and thank you." ARG! Some days I think I'm on the wrong coast, but then I'd miss things like seasons and driving in no traffic..and we all know my powers diminish the further I get from New York. I didn't want to go to stupid ole Disneyland anyways. Bleh.

Emi shot up the place for us, so we could live vicariously. ENJOY!


Holy Dam I Want One. Or even half of one. We saw what you could do with rocket pants on Frisky Dingo. Way more pics HERE in our Flickr.

We also thought we'd take the opportunity to give you a closer look at some of the armors from the film you may have spotted for a split second...

Artillery-Level RT Suit (Mark XII) – Known as Heartbreaker, it has an oversized chest RT, which can fire powerful blasts. The Heartbreaker can fire narrow or wide beams and can also generate a repulsor shield for protection.
Silver Centurion Suit (Mark XXXIII) – The Silver Centurion has a slight protective force field, which allows the suit to attract or repulse objects using magnetic polarity. The suit is capable of firing pulse cannons that build in intensity the further they travel.
Disaster-Rescue Suit (Mark XXXV) – Known as Red Snapper, this armor was designed to survive in dangerous places. The suit has extendable arms and claws making it ideal for disaster rescue.
Heavy Lifting Suit (Mark XXXVIII) – Known as Igor, this armor actually wasn’t designed for battle. It was created for heavy lifting and carrying heavy objects.
Hyper Velocity (Mark XL) – Known as Shotgun, it’s designed for hypersonic speed. It can travel in excess of Mach 5.
Heavy Construction Suit (Mark XXV) – Known as Striker, it was designed to help with construction. Its powerful jackhammer-like arms can pulverize concrete.  It can withstand high temperatures and electrical surges. Pic courtesy of Omelete

That last suit is the mysterious Deep Space / Starboost Armor that would propel Tony Stark into the cosmos in a rumored, removed or never executed mid-credits scene on the tail end of Iron Man 3.

Not pictured above but given face time in the movie is:
Skeleton Suit (Mark XLI) – Known as Bones, it’s a black and gold lighter version of a full Iron man suit. Its purpose is speed and maneuverability. Here's a pic of the minimate from Diamond Select...

Now, a quick note to Hasbro. We've all seen the movie (well most of us!) We know Iron Man doesn't swap parts of his armor with other armors, making the Assemblers line tie directly into the movie. Damage done...hope you sold some of them to the kiddies because no collectors I know are buying them. NOW..what collectors DO want to buy are armors right from the films and more concept and comic armors in your Iron Man 2 established 3 and 3 quarter inch scale. SO! I propose you capitalize on Iron Man 3 being on it's way to grossing a billion dollars and make us some more action figures that will fit into our collections and we'll gladly buy them. Deal? Deal. See pics above for inspiration. Some battle damaged armors would be extra awesome. Please and thanks.
