SILLY THING Toys has been the talk of the industry since its establishment. Following their Bounty Hunter and The Beatles interpretations, SILLY THING Toys gets set to yet again launch a triumphant collaboration, this time with Marvel Studios and Hong Kong-based Hot Toys. Marking the very first time that they have authorized an original customized version of its characters, Marvel allows SILLY THING founder TK to work up a special colorway, utilizing the 1/6 Mark III as his base. One of the figures highlights includes the use of rare “battle-damaged” paint, which called for a figure re-creation considering the paint would not adhere to the original plastic surface of the Mark III platform.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Mickey Rourke’s bruising opponents in “The Wrestler” don’t look so tough compared to his new foe: Robert Downey Jr.‘s Iron Man.

Distributor Paramount has released the first photo of Rourke as villain Whiplash in the upcoming sequel, “Iron Man 2.”

Rourke is dressed for battle in the image, his torso and arms wrapped in metal braces sporting weapons and a chest device resembling the portable power plant that runs Downey’s Iron Man suit.

While Downey is completely encased in his metal suit, Rourke’s Whiplash outfit shows off a lot of flesh, along with plenty of tattoos coating the character’s skin.

Directed by Jon Favreau, “Iron Man 2” kicks off Hollywood’s 2010 summer season next May 7.

Terrance Howard out, Don Cheadle joins ‘Iron Man 2’…

I wonder how much Terrance wanted, that would make them go in a new direction so quickly. he probably thought that he had more leverage. It must hurt that he will not be in the sequel which will be even bigger than the first. He needs to fire he agent immediately.

But there will be no next time for Howard.
