The Mark 50 is Tony Stark’s fiftieth Iron Man suit. The mark 50 has been used to battle Thanos and his allies. This armor is more advanced than any other previous armors, the entire armor is stored inside the detachable Arc reactor on Tony's Chest, it possesses many capabilities and useful functions for Tony to use at his disposal.
Like the Marks 45, 46, and 47, this armor has the F.R.I.D.A.Y OS built into it and possesses some of the most advanced technology and weapons compared to other armors Tony Stark has built.
The Mark 50 can materialize nano booster wings for a boost in speed and stabilized flight when needed or when armor's palm repulsors cannot provide stabilization. It also has the capability to shoot nanotech from the launchers mounted in the left and right arm which can be used to deploy external structures, that can be used to repair or build. Tony uses this system to stop Thanos from closing his fist to use the Infinity Stones, as well as sealing the stab wound in his abdomen when Thanos stabs him
Ironically I never read Iron Man comics. If he didn’t pop up in a Spiderman Crossover I paid no attention to him. I love the Iron Man movie, and he is a scene stealer in the Avenger Films. In Avengers Infinity War Tony had to pull out the big guns in battling Thanos and busted out the MK 50 Armor. Now Diamond Select Toys has replicated that into a new PVC Diorama that’s a must buy for fans.
Let’s start at the top. You like Iron-Man? Well this is extreme Iron-Man. The helmet is the classic gold and red. The detail is outstanding as the electrical parts and notches are etched and shaded throughout. I love the vison eye lids. They are a shade like combination of blue and white. They almost look as if they are starring at you. It’s hard to really see in this picture but they are polarizing to some extent. The main piece of the helmet is the bright gold color that’s shaded quiet well. The top of the helmet even has the wing marking on it to give it that look of authenticity. You can see the neck has the light black under armor markings. It looks like the Classic Iron-Man armor of old however that goes out the window when you hit the neck. The neck is still classic red and yellow but flows inward to show off the eye popping red MK 50 design.
Moving down to the body you can see the lines etched throughout the outfit. Bright red and with silver electric lines that has a touch of white and grey to them, this is movie magic at its finest reproduced in statue form.. The design is done really well, as you can clearly tell there is a human being under the armor and it’s not just a robot.. It looks fantastic as colors flow together so well and the black undertones in each crease and bend make it look almost like a 3-D oil painting. The legs are bent and with the sculpting and shading it really does appear to be an actual suite of armor. The hands being open are a perfect touch as inside on the palms you can see the blue blasters. It’s done in a contrast of blue, light blue, and a touch of white to give it the look as if it’s charging up to fire full force. The 6 (3 on each side) extended cannons opening out of the sides and back look great and really make this one look massive in terms of size and scope.
These cannon blasters to me are the heart and soul of the piece and make it truly eye catching to say the least. Every single piece of the electric pulse cannon flow is sculpted to look like it’s coming straight out at you. Its different shades of blue whit white mixed in. It’s like if water could fry you It twists and turns and flows in a way that pictures don’t do it justice. The left hand even has a huge almost orb like looking bolt ready to come popping out. I love how it wraps around the had as if its showing some of the backfire. It’s probably the nicest laser effect I’ve seen to this date from a statue.
I like the base and the placement of Iron Man on it. With the twisted and arched legs he looks as though he is hovering above the rocks. The rocks in question, I assume are part of Titan, the planet they fought Thanos on in Infinity War. Its large outflowing rock pattern. Different boulders stacked together all made to look like real rock in terms of sculpting, shading, and etching. The colors are really well done as it’s a combination of maroon, red, brown, grey, yellow, orange, black, you name it. You can see little pebbles and bumps throughout each section. It’s really good looking, I just wish it could have been a bit wider to match the statue itself.
Overall this sis a great piece to add to your Avengers collection. Diamond Select has made move based PVC Dioramas for most of the characters and this one will look amazing next to the others. Mine is by my Thanos and Iron Spider. It’s a great piece and its nice to have another Iron Man in my collection. I recommend going out and picking one up

Batman is the secret identity of Bruce Wayne. Witnessing the murder of his parents as a child leads him to train himself to physical and intellectual perfection and don a bat-themed costume in order to fight crime. Batman operates in Gotham City, assisted by various supporting characters including his sidekick Robin and his butler Alfred Pennyworth, and fights an assortment of villains influenced by the characters' roots in film and pulp magazines. Unlike most superheroes, he does not possess any superpowers; he makes use (to the best that he can) of intellect, detective skills, science and technology, wealth, physical prowess, and intimidation in his war on crime.
Batman is by far and away my favorite Superhero of all time. I have been reading his comics for over 40 years now. He was and always will be the coolest hero in my eyes. Hell I even loved the old campy 1966 TV show. I loved the animated series, I loved all of animated movies. I even liked a few of the live action movies. The only ones I didn’t really like were the ones Nolan made. There were purge crap in my opinion. Wrong origin, wrong names, wrong designs, everything was wrong. Plus Batman should not sound like a guy who smokes 8 packs of cigarettes a day. Throw in the fact that he wears a black costume (which to be fair he did in the other films as well) and I even hate the look. Batman wears Great and Blue with a Yellow belt. It’s never changed, EVER! Yet every movie wants him in black. And to be fair I understand. Its more stealth and ninja looking and in terms of the tone of the films it fits. That doesn’t mean I have to like it however. Now Diamond Select has put out a line of Batman Statues based off of the Nolan Dark Knight films. So I’m going to review this based off of how it’s supposed to look in comparison with the films as opposed to the fact I hate the black costume.
First off let's start at the body this time. I love how the costume is molded. It’s done just like an armor mold should be done. You can see every plate and line in the outfit while also seeing what the muscles underneath would look like. I may not enjoy the movie look but Diamond Select has captured this perfectly. The battle worn black suit with the bat emblem comes springing full force. Notice how the outfit is battle damaged. I really like how Diamond Select Toys designs these to depict the hero in battle. From the etched and shaded little nicks in the costume, to the variations of shading used to accent dirt and scuff marks this is a perfect way to show off the caped crusader. I have to admire how they took a black costume, and by using several different shades and going between lighter and darker black they have added another dimension to the costume. Throw in the Bat signal on the chest (I still prefer the classic blue) and it's a beautiful design. Don’t get me wrong this outfit is a beautiful almost bright looking black but it’s also done to show you that Batman is out fighting crime in it as well. And I do have to really give props on the utility belt. It’s a very bright gold with black etching and shading to break up the monotony of the black.
Moving up to the face you can see Christian Bale under that cowl. From the jaw line to the lips this statue is a dead ringer. Throw in the fact he a good jaw for a Batman and that makes it stand out more. I do really like the cowl design itself. Notice how it's sculpted to show all the wrinkles and folds once it hits the cape area, but a hard as a rock piece of armor for the head itself. It even has a slight lift in the shoulder area to show how the cape is blowing in the wind as Batman investigates the crime scene. The eyes of the cowl are the most important however as they form that trademark scowl look the Batman in known for. You can feel how angry and determined he looks by the bending of the brow in this design which is pretty impressive considering its essentially etched out in almost a visor look. The ears are pointy, and that a good thing because they should be.
The arms and legs on this side view sow the 3D detail that went into this piece. Clutching a Joker Card you can almost feel how Batman is examining it for even the smallest clue. All the fingers are individually sculpted to show the firm grip he has on it and you can even see the wrinkles in the knuckle area of the gloves as he arches his wrist slightly back. As we work are way to the leg notice the cape. I love how it not only flows with the design of the statue but the extra touch of it blowing in the wind make this look even better. The side style planting of the legs is the topper for the 3D look. If you look you can even see how the boot has a few slight bend marks etched and painted on it to give it the full battle look and add to the fact that he is standing tall and firm/
Before I get to the base l wanted to point of the back of the cape. As you can see it's perfectly done to look like it's blowing as Batman stands outside looking for clues. Every line is perfectly sculpted. You can see the lift where the cape is pushed up flowing in the wind. The other part I really like is how there is a part of the cape almost looks as if it brushing against the broken wall where Batman is standing by. It's a nice touch that needs to be mentioned
The base is pretty simple. A round piece of cement with a broken piece of wall I assume with Joker cars scattered on the bottom next to pieces of the broken stone. The wall, or stone maybe I should say looks really nice. Its grey and sculpted to look as if it is crumbling. Its etched full of cracks and shaded in silver, white, and an almost charcoal color to give it a fully realistic look. The base part itself is a dirty grey and the cards laying around really look good on it as they are bent and damaged from the elements. I have this particular statue in one of my curio cabinets, and when I turn the light on it looks as if it’s under a light post.
While I don’t like the Black costume I have no problem saying this a movie designed statue that looks exactly how it’s supposed to. It’s a great piece and let’s face it you can never have to many Batman statues in the house. Go ahead and pick this one up today

Felicia Hardy is the daughter of Walter Hardy, a world-renowned cat burglar. After suffering a traumatic experience as a college freshman, she trained herself in various fighting styles and acrobatics and, after deciding to follow in her father's footsteps, adopted the costumed identity of the Black Cat. As Black Cat, she has the subconscious ability to affect probability fields, producing "bad luck" for her enemies. The character was originally a supervillain and adversary of Spider-Man, but over time the two fell in love, which motivated her into becoming both an anti-heroine, and his partner. However, their relationship grew complicated after it became apparent that Black Cat was only attracted to the alter ego of Spider-Man and had little interest in the hero's civilian life as Peter Parker. After their break-up, Black Cat maintained her role as one of Spider-Man's most trusted allies and for years the pair shared on-again, off-again romance before she eventually lapsed back into her criminal ways (much to Spider-Man's dismay and annoyance).
I’ve always been a huge fan of The Black Cat character. Most people forget she played a crucial part in Spidey realizing his Black Suite was actually an Alien Symbiot. I also always dug the fact she was in love with Spidey but did like when he was his normal self aka Peter Parker. It brought a weird twist to their ill-fated romance. She was pretty much a cross between the Black Widow and Catwoman. Which is a pretty awesome combo to say the least. She should have been Marvels answer to Catwoman but alas she always played more of a background role. Hero or Villain I dig the character and the look she has. And now Diamond Select Toys has captured it in their newest PVC Diorama.
I can't tell you enough how much I love this one. She's presented in her classic costume. The dark black body suit with black boots, belt, black gloves, and yes the amazing white cat fur perfectly etched in white and black around her hands, boots, and outfit collar. Take special notice and you can see the medallion on the choker as well to give it a nice added touch. Let’s focus a bit on her face. I'm going to start with the face. It's perfect I can't say anything else. It looks like the drawing has come to life. From the lips to the eyes to even the eye lashes under her black cat mask this is amazing on every level. Lips, nose, cheekbones you name it. It's perfectly sculpted and painted to look like a comic book drawing. As long as we're on the face look at this amazing detail in the hair. It's etched out so meticulously you would swear it was done strand by strand. It flows and curves perfectly around the face neck and as you see here the side, where the majority is set. The shading is breathtaking and the white, with just a hint of a dark white to almost silver in spots, it is identical to the drawings I remember from the books. It's by far one of, if not, the best hair I've seen on any statue.
From the back you get yet another shot of the hair style, and you can see how she is placed on an open safe base. This base, which I will get to in a little bit is so cool. Notice how her toes are culled and pointed up are up on the right leg and how the heel is up while the front of the boot is planted on the left leg. That combined with her finger tips being placed on the base you get the perfect look of not only a stealth pose, but the impression she is ready to spring into action. I can't complement Diamond Select Toys enough when it comes to placement on their statues. The nuance about them is so beautiful they really have a 3D look and feel. You can also see the detail and lines in her leather black outfit and boots as well as all the shading and sculpting of the white fur areas. That fur is so balanced and real it really pops the fact you ca see every stretch and line in the spandex style costume which is a bright black designed to look like leather.
From the side you can see the impressive details of the hair. Notice how the sculpting is still done to a t and the hair, for the most part is given a brushed back blowing look. Look at the quality done on the muscles on the outstretched arms and leg That's just awesome right there. You can see the outlines just like in a real person and I absolutely love the colors used for the fur. The costume is a perfect match of the comics as is the coloring. The style of using a bright color with just a touch of darker shading in spots really makes this shine.
Now we get to the base. Diamond Select is known for their impressive base designs and this is no different. It’s a safe, as she is a thief but it’s a Spider-Man safe. The front of the safe is all done in red with black spider webs and his eyes dead in the center. The safe even has a dial, and opener painted to match the Spidey design. You can even see the bolts on the inside of the door, which is opened. The fact that is only opened a bout half way adds a nice touch as you get the impression she’s just cracked it and now ready to take what’s inside. And what is inside? Money and its done really well. A dirty green with the bank wrappers holding wads together that look like they got just a little messed up during her break in. The color is outstanding as its dirty looking and crumples just like real cash.
From top to bottom this is a winner. I always liked the comic book designs as I’m a comic fan and this is one of, if not the best looking Marvel one I have seen. It’s fantastic and looks great next to my many Spider-Man statues. I highly recommend going out and adding this one to you collection and putting it front and center for everyone to admire.

Glenn Danzig has occasionally flirted with becoming a filmmaker, with his line of spooky sex comics, Verotik, getting a movie deal last year (not to mention his acting roles in Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Portlandia!), but a recent Facebook post suggests that Danzig is about to direct a real feature film. According to whoever runs his Facebook page—it’s probably not him, since the post refers to him as “Mr. Danzig”—Mr. Danzig is putting the “finishing touches” on a movie script that is being billed as a “vampire spaghetti Western.” It also says that casting will be starting soon, but that’s all we know.
“vampire spaghetti Western” is a good pitch, and it definitelly sounds like something Danzig would make. We’re not sure if it’s something he could make, as his talents as a director will go unproven until the Verotik movie comes out. The post also mentions that the Danzig Sings Elviscovers album will be released later this year, but that’s not a vampire spaghetti Western so it’s hard to care as much about that.
