Iron Man Poster #82 Model 1 Gold Armor Ken Steacy


SKU: 14648 Category:


The Golden Armor (Iron Man Armor Model 01 Version III), was the second version of the first Iron Man Armor model, after Tony Stark refined the former armor back at Stark Industries. Modified from the original version, this armor features a full golden appearance and some slightly new designs.

It is a variant of the Original Grey Armor, developed by Tony Stark.

Tony Stark, upon realizing that civilians found the Original Grey Armor ominous, painted it, thus creating the Golden Armor. He eventually added improvements, including lighter weight, boot jets, jet skates, and a chest-searchlight.

The gold color was suggested by a woman Tony was dating, Marion to make Iron Man resemble a “knight in shining armor”.
