Disneyland – Iron Man Tech

 

Life size replicas as well as movie props.   It was worth the wait in line to go in and see all of the great armors.  My wife and I were already headed down for the weekend to kick-off my Spring Break.  It was the end of our annual passes for Disneyland, and we wanted to go one more time.  Then the news of Iron Man Tech coming to Disneyland to promote Iron Man 3, and I knew that it was fate.

They had the new Mark 42 on display, as well as the first 7 armors.  It was so cool to see them side by side in a comparison.   Here they are:

Mark I:

Mark II:

Mark III:

Mark IV:

Mark V:

Mark VI:

Mark VII:

All seven of these armors are displayed like the Hall of Armor in Tony’s work area.   Lights all around, and in the middle is displayed the Mark 42 armor:

The gold color of the other armors is a lot more subdued, taking on much more of a tan color.  There is also the addition of more silver in certain areas of the body.

In addition to the 8 armors around, there is an area where you can stand on a platform, and an artificial Iron Man armor is built over your body on the screen.  Then it runs tests on the screen with you presumably inside the suit you are looking at.    The line grew quickly, it took a while to be built up inside the suit, and it was not all that impressive.  So I took the opportunity to take some pictures of the props that were hanging behind the glass along the first part of the line.

The Mark I prop was outstanding.  To see all of the weld lines and the dents in the armor really shows how Tony would have pieced this together out in the desert.

The Mark 42 parts are really well detailed.  Looks like the end of the battle for these parts.

There are many, many more pictures to share.  Just click on any picture above to be taken to my Flickr site and peruse the rest of the pictures.  Lots more detail shots of the armors.
