So we got our Geeky claws on some more Iron Man 3 Concept art that we have Evidence to Back up and this time we think we hit the jackpot! After watching the trailer we realized that Iron Man’s New Gold Armor would not last through the whole movie and knowing this we had to think … If “The Mandarin” Destroys this new armor and we see the Hal of armor Blow up … is that it for Iron Man? Also another hint is that the “Gold” Armor is called the Mark XLVII, Kevin Feige hinted at this when he said this about Iron Man 3, “Logic would dictate that it would be the Mark VIII, but we’ve already talked about taking risks, so logic may not apply!”.
So with that being Said its safe to assume that the 40 Units in Between The newest armor and the last version from Avengers will be a Army of Armors that are remotely controlled like the drones from Ironman 2.
Check out this Toy image released from LEGO that shows a final Battle Between Iron Man and The Mandarin. Note the Armor in the upper Right corner … Its the Mark XLVII and the Armor he is using to fight the Mandarin is different in both color and design. Lego Made sure to use different stickers on this armor to show the difference in armor. Check it out Below.
Does The Lower Armor remind you of anything? Well check out the full concept art for the Iron Man 3 “Heart Breaker” Armor. Also take note of the Signature BLUE glow of the newer Armor Verses the White Glow of the Mark XLVII.
Then compare it to the one from the Box cover … and they Match up pretty well.
