Hasbro seems to hit us with some very current costumes now and then. What do you guys think of these three? 

 

Stealth Mark 70

 

Mark Nil

 

Ultimate Iron Lad (wouldn't mind getting that Doom either)

I wouldn’t mind. Regardless of where they fall in comic continuity, those figures would look great standing in an Armory. So I’d be all for them.

I’d love all of these in figure form, especially the new stealth armor, Nil.

That Mark Nil armor looks very cool.

I'd like an alt-armor for each of the major main armor eras - be it stealth or space or something else. Partly because unlike every other comic character that they make crazy repaints and variants of (looking at you Batman toy makers), for IM it is actually believable to me he'd have an arctic or desert or undersea armor...

I'd take those first two armors. But I'm not asking for anymore Ultimates universe figures until I get Thor. Then again, I don't think I could settle for the old Ultimate Iron Man figure from the Annihilus wave anymore. That was crap then, it's even crappier now.

Nil is the current armor, right?

@normdapito Yes, the Nil armor is the current suit. It’s very cool, with some great extra powers.

Iron Man figures make Gargoyle getting a figure more likely. The most recent time Gargoyle showed up in comics (and Frogman, too) was in Iron Man comics:

Yes, way too early. We wouldn't want another X-23 situation on our hands.

But what if a figure of the new armor has A CLAW IN ITS FOOT?!?!?!

 

(Nothing beats nearly 20 year old Fwoosh in-jokes)

I got into the online fandom relatively late, so the two big X-23 style controversies over "too soon" I witnessed were Spider-Gwen and Ms. Marvel. Fun times. Especially the people insisting Spider-Gwen would soon be forgotten and would be looked back on as a wasted slot in due time.

 

Anyway, I'd absolutely take that Ultimate Iron Lad. I've always been sad Hasbro didn't do much with the Ultimate line besides Miles and the occasional straggler like Jessica Drew, so I'd love to see them give some focus to the relaunch.

I'm a diehard Ultimate Universe fan. The impending relaunch is a dream-come-true. Give me all the Ultimate figures, including and especially Maker.

I’m not a fan of Tony Stark, but I do like his various armors! So, with that in mind, I do want more armors despite not being a ‘homer’. However, I want older iterations, most notably, his Space Armor, Armor Wars armor, and a classic Hulk Buster armor. Additionally, I want Arsenal, Sunturion, and classic versions of Titanium Man and Crimson Dynamo (mark VII and Valentin’s armor [the early Hasbro version]).

Very cool.  On a side note, "Iron Man 300" is on the leak list.  Anyone have a picture of that armor??  I'm not certain what exactly it's referring to.
