  1. So they can get the license for M. Rourkes likeness but they can't use orange pants? Not a huge deal but that is just reeetarded

  2. Whiplash eh? They'll probably have 2 versions then if the rumors of a less "homemade" version of the suit turn out to be true.

    I'm excited by the prospect of Hot Toys Nick Fury and Black Widow...
