Avengers: Age of Ultron: Hot Toys releases images of Mark XLIII Armor

As the trailers and sneak peeks to Avengers: Age of Ultron have shown and proved, Tony Stark will return as Iron Man once more to fight alongside his teammates... And the next iteration of his armor will follow right after his ill-fated "Mark XLII/ 42" armor directly in terms of numbering!

Previewed by Hot Toys in their official Facebook page, the newly revealed full image of the "Mark XLIII/ Mark 43" armor shows that Tony's taking it back old school in terms of the dominant red over yellow color scheme, but also adding nods to the last armor in some layers in the side and arms of the suit as well.

For more information on this Hot Toys release as well as pre-ordering this baby, visit their official Facebook page.

Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1, 2015.

Street Fighter V: Charlie Nash announced as the third playable character for the game

Looks like an old friend is coming back... And a certain user of the Sonic Boom is going to be happy.

Reported by Event Hubs and announced as the third playable character for Street Fighter V, Street Fighter Zero/ Alpha veteran character Charlie Nash is coming back into the fold... And this return will probably explain officially how he is alive and well (and no, the Shadow character from the Marvel Vs Capcom games is not canon).

As the best friend and fellow comrade of Guile, Nash taught his friend all the tricks of the trade in fighting, which is why they share a similar move sets in the game. Being a playable character in the Alpha series, Charlie's life came to an abrupt end when he was killed by M. Bison/ Vega when he and Guile were infiltrating Shadoloo, leading to the latter to swear vengeance and hunt down Bison and his army once and for all.

It will be interesting to see how Nash's comeback plays out when more details arrive, especially with SFV being a PS4 and PC exclusive.
