UD Replicas Officially Unveils ‘Leather-as-Metal’ Motorcycle Suit Based on IRON MAN 2

Produced Under License With Marvel, Amazing Replica
of Tony Stark’s Mark V Suitcase Suit from

TORONTO, Ontario, Canada (July 12, 2010) Building an extraordinary collection of handcrafted, high-end leather motorcycle suits that replicate the on-screen designs worn by cinematic Super Heroes, UD Replicas today announced that it is taking orders for its all-new replica of the Mark V Suitcase Suit from IRON MAN 2

Meticulously designed and hand crafted by UD Replicas, with creative guidance from Marvel, the IRON MAN 2 Mark V Motorcycle Suit includes an intricately detailed jacket that recreates the metallic angles and deep colors of the original – in form-molded leather that boasts a remarkable texture and dimensionality.

The complete IRON MAN 2 Motorcycle Suit includes jacket, pants, boots and gloves and retails for $1,099.00 in the U.S. and Canada. Orders will be accepted beginning July 1 until September 15 exclusively at www.UDReplicas.com. UD Replicas offers a three-month payment option for full four-piece orders, and suits are expected to be delivered in the first quarter of 2011.

“We’ve replicated the visual effect of Iron Man’s armor,” explains David Pea, owner of UD Replicas, which spent four months researching and designing the IRON MAN 2 Motorcycle Suit. “From the neck down, every single detail is form-molded leather, and has presented us with a fantastic creative challenge. It’s important for us to get the details exactly right, because the Iron Man suit is such an iconic design.”

Each IRON MAN 2 Motorcycle Suit from UD Replicas takes several days to produce, and incorporates a chest arc reactor made of highly reflective, light-sensitive material that glows when light hits it. The IRON MAN 2 Motorcycle Suit also incorporates removable CE-approved body armor; gloves with built-in, anti-skid Kevlar in the leather lining of the palms.

The leather work is finished in the candy-apple red featured in the original on-screen suit, with a translucent, pearl metallic finish.  The silver accents are metallic silver chrome with a translucent finish.

The IRON MAN 2 Motorcycle Suit, along with UD Replicas’ X2Wolverine Motorcycle Suit, will be displayed at booth 2913 during San Diego International Comic-Con from July 21 to July 25.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
