    I'd like to echo the praise for Obadiah Stane! Nice choice on the head. Also, I would've used a gray suit for Hammer, and a colored (probably a or nougat, but heck, even a blond or reddish brown) hairpiece for Pierce; Redford's hair is conspicuously dyed a not-gray color.
  2. What about the Jurassic Park III line, from 2000? They both licensed the movie and Steven Spielberg's personal brand. They also licensed Spider-Man (2002). Granted, they're not recent. But Lego did make them.

    Goliath is a good choice for X-Men. For Winter Soldier, what about one of the AT-ST pilots? I assume you're doing the bandana cover over the mouth, and it looks decent together.

    Oh, there are several good options. I'd rank them as follows: Bucky (Infinity War) First Order officer, male (Last Jedi) US Cavalry (Lone Ranger) Edna Mode (Incredibles) Cyclops

    You could use a red bracket and cover the stud with a plain black round tile. Then you wouldn't see the stud, and it would be round.

    I was just looking, and Magneto's seemed decent. Did you consider either of these: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=973p68c01#T=S&C=5&O={"color":5,"iconly":0} https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=973pb0218c01#T=S&C=5&O={"color":5,"iconly":0} EDIT: Or what about using a black bracket on the front of a plain red torso?
  7. I'd go for the Gladiator variant of the Falcon hair. Favreau's hair is browner than it is black.

    Have you tried it with the black pants pictured? That's the closest to the movies, and the torso is designed to go with them. There just aren't any good Bright Orange pants for this.

    Hair: * 43753 or 11256 Torso: * Bernadette or General Leia (w/ purple arms to change the vest into a sport coat) Head (I didn't try very hard on this, but there are many options. Here are a couple trying to get the "looking down her spectacles" look): * Janine or Dumbledore

    Nah, it wasn't for nothing. Especially with alterations, the Loki helmet gets a lot closer to the movie design. The one I suggested is just one alternative if you want variety in your helmets.

    If you don't want to sand down the helmet, there are other helmets in various gold colors; I like to use 24088 for Heimdall and/or Odin. It's very comic Thor-esque, even if it's not particularly accurate to the movie.

    I saw a good one on Instagram that was Iron Patriot with the S7 CMF space marine armor with a red tile on the stud. They also made some non-purist additions, but I think it looks good without them.
  13. The Mark 1 wasn't repurposed; Pepper and the Agents specifically find it intact in Stane's lab. And in the Iron Man 3 prequel comic, it was shown that Tony stripped the Mk II/VTRBS 001 back down to its original specifications for the display. So one of those is the oldest. Now, there's some debate as to whether the Iron Man 3 version of the Mk I is supposed to be an original– Pepper mostly blew up Stane's lab with the arc reactor, so is the IM3 version a salvage or a replica? But there's also debate as to how original the other suits are– for instance, the Mk III helmet was crushed, but the Iron Man 2/Iron Man 3 version of the Mk III displays it with the helmet intact. And its chestpiece is damaged, but all the other suits have their respective battle damage buffed out/replaced. And just to play Devil's Advocate on the aesthetic side of things, the vast majority of the suits we've gotten in Lego are virtually identical red-and-gold numbers, so getting more gray would really still be changing things up.

    It's quite good from the front, though the double-sided head will be a turnoff for some if they want him bald. Personally, I think using the close-cropped black hair makes the most sense for his Infinity War appearance (which the proposed facial hair matches) anyway, turning the second face into a nonissue.
  15. I give it even odds that it doesn't appear in the movie at all. But if it does, my current bet is that it was intended to be a normal-sized variant of the Infinity War 004, and that it's portrayed as a giant mech because of Ant-Man size-changing stuff. The stickers and prints are all derived from the 004 design.
