Don't see why China would be mad that a character was named Mandarin. That's not a racial thing. Mandarins in China were a scholarly class of government officials, not an ethnicity.

I agree, but the drum corps might sue...

Maybe he modifies the basic specifications of the Mark 1 to create the Hulkbuster, not the existing one but a new Mark 8/9 based off of it.

Re: Iron Man 3 Discussion/Photos/ETC.

Unless the Hulk actually appears int eh film, we won't see a Hulkbuster.

I like the growth of the Armory - though I suspect he'll be running out of wallspace in his basement before long at the rate he's going!

In the comics, Tony tended to keep around (or create replicas of) his older armors to keep around more for sentimental reasons than having an eye of ever actually using them again. This has proven a good idea on several occasions when a bad guy would find a weakness in Tony's latest suit and he's forced to downgrade, though he can still do his thing (and we get to see some old favorite armors again, most often the "classic" red and gold he spent twenty years using). On one occasion, a bunch of guys who once piloted the armor (plus Bethany Cabe) used a squadron of old armors against Ultimo while Tony was incapaciated. THAT is something I wouldn't mind seeing in a movie! Though in this movie universe Tony doesn't have many friends...

He seems to have made a new Mark 2, much like the new Mark 1. The collection is basically sentimental which I quite like, but there's no room for any newer models, unless the last space is reserved for the newest model.

Yes, but the Mark 2 was stolen after that scene, since War Machine is still out there the Mark 2 in this scene is a new build.

Fair enough

I hope we get to see him use two or three of them throughout the film, I wouldn't mind seeing the Mark 5 in use again.

So I just came across a rather interesting spoilerish pic. Don't click if you want to avoid spoilers, obviously.
