I remember seeing this a while back. Nice find

I was just in Hong Kong a week ago too, and after seeing this I'm kicking myself in the ass for not checking out the Hot Toys store over there. Probably wouldn't have bought anything still, but it's always nice to check out the wares. Ah well, c'est la vie.

Good call. I've been meaning to(and keep telling myself that I will) grab some of their stuff for years, but I think I've decided to just splurge on swag after I pay off the mortgage...which is unfortunately many, many tax returns away.

Yep, I can't even afford to say the word afford right now. I have around $100 to my name until I start my new job and get paid...in about two weeks.

as if it is not allowed to speak of these marvel films of having any flaws or any problems people may have with it. why do they ALWAYS have the need to defend and cannot sometimes accept the fact that wat the studio might have done was too much or wrong?

yes a box office success rules all but the reactions will always be there and remembered

Damn All Hail the King did a damn good job redeeming IM3. Can't wait to see The Real Mandarin. Sir Ben Kingsley totally owned Trevor Slattery .

It's always worth a try. I am just glad that I don't have to view Syndrome as the real MCU Mandarin anymore.

I must've missed the part where it was Tony who went after Killian, when Killian re-went to Stark Industries for help. Damn.

Scrolling through the past few posts, I think some people should look up the definition of "retcon".

So much of this. Once again Marvel delivers what I didn't expect them to.

I'll bet money most of these people who throw that word around don't even know what it's an abbreviation of

Marvel, the masters at trolling. First they got one half of the fan base to cry, and now it's the other half's turn.

Some of us (a precious few, apparently) have been plenty happy all along.

I have been happier with this film series than I thought possible. I haven't been let down yet. Sure in hindsight some of the movies don't hold up phenomenally but that's really only when you compare it to what came after and was improved upon. They're right on track. I have no complaints or suggestions, just give me more.

LOL same here.

I loved All Hail the King. It was funny, exciting, and set up a great possible story direction for IM4.

At least now we won't have to deal with the "Killian was the Mandarin" nonsense anymore.

My favorite part was the Hammer cameo.I really hope they make use of him again.

Makes you wonder where they intend to go from here.
