    Wow. Just…Wow. The detail is incredible.It really looks like something a genuis would put together in a POW camp. There are so many parts of that suit that just make sense. Every bit of info that comes out makes me more and more excited. Wow.

    I wonder if the caption for this photo should be “I crap nerds like you for breakfast- see!”.

    It looks awesome, but it doesn’t look bulletproof.

    The Mark I is bulletproof. In the Comic Con footage that was leaked showed bullets pinging off of it. It’s dead sexy, I absolutely love the work that Stan Winston & Co. did in building an actual suit.

    I saw the footage too, but it still has open areas, exposed wiring, and unprotected mechanical parts. It’s clearly not bulletproof.

    Also, he’s got tanks of gas strapped to the arms. I bet a lucky shot or two to one of those babies would blow Stark’s arm off.

    Yes, I am indeed bulletproof.

    It looks like a proof of concept, an early Mark 0.1 prototype, hastily put-together by a mad scientist to demonstrate the technical feasability of the weapon. Or maybe it’s a 14th century knight in shining armor who lost his horse.
