SY262 Iron Man 3rd Wave

First of all, i would like to say thank you soooooooooooo much to Celox from Germany for these awesome pictures. Guess what? It's the latest SY262 Iron Man! 

Image taken from Taobao


Iron Man X Green Lantern



Mark 36 Peacemaker



Mark 20 Python




Mark 22 Hot Rod



Mark 25 Striker




Mark 41 Bones



Mark 5 Suitcase Armor



Mark 1



I had a very friendly chat with Celox about these figures and here are his findings:
  • 6 of these suits (the first 6 from above) are copied of custom design by eurobricks member - Crayonboi (link).
  • Mark 1 design is very similar to the one made by thepyromaster. You may see the design that he shared on his flickr (link). Please note there's number "001" on the armor.
  • source for Mark 5 suit design also might come from flickr
  • Mark 41 Bones in this set is far more better than the one SY already released in 1st wave 
Left - Mark 1, Right - Mark 2. Please note the number printed on the suit

Mark 41 in this latest set (left) vs 1st SY set (right)


I personally think Crayonboi is a very talented guy. I immediately fell in love with other iron man suit that he had. However, I still feel bad for him because his works have been stole by Sheng Yuan just like that but i wish more people will recognise and appreciate his work. Credit should be given to him. Spread the word,guys!

Thanx again Celox for the kind gesture!

  1. SY262-01 is War Machine in movie Iron man2 is base on Tony's Mk2 suit. but lego's War Machine is base on Hotrod (before repaint it again to iron patriot in movie iron man3) not same suit.
    SY262-02 in my opinion it just Mk7 repaint (grey/silver color instead gold color) but their color no match any official Mk suit in movie iron man 3.(don't look like All Gold Mk7 = Mk21 Midas)

  3. 22, 25, 36, 42 and war machine look great.

    '5', 20 and green lantern are disappointing...

    - This is the so-called mark V minifig which was copied: https://www.flickr.com/photos/epiclegodecals/7146005633/
    Funnily the original is just a photoshopped mark VII, and it's probably the worst looking iron man minifig design I've seen.
    - Mk 20 python is a weak design and should be black, not blue...
    - Green lantern?! it's not even Marvel! This is inter-franchise blasphemy! I'm kidding, I don't mind that, but I would rather have a set of all cross-over iron men rather than just one of 8.

    I can't understand why they did these rather than hammerhead or blue steel or piston or ANY OTHER ACTUAL IRON MAN.... Sorry I just really want to have all 45 movie iron man designs (though we'll likely never see Igor). Fingers crossed they up their game next time - at least the Crayonboi designs are generally good.

    BTW, I'm glad you noticed the 4 sets had unique designs on them. the mark 17 design actually looks nicer than official Lego! It's a shame the helmet chin wasn't painted. I will probably get these now.

    1. Whoa ... *slow clap* ... walking Ironman minifig reference.

      Delete
    2. Umm, thanks? Slow claps are ambiguous as to whether you're in agreement or not...

      KnowYourMeme suggest you're being sarcastic, although it also seems potentially ambiguous.
      http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/slow-clap
      However I have no idea why, so if so it's sort of meaningless.
      I don't know what you mean by 'walking Ironman minifig reference' either.
      I hope you can elaborate.

      As I'm replying, I want to correct my typo, 41, not 42.

      Delete
    3. Sorry to have offended you. I did not mean to be sarcastic at all. My apologies.

      Delete
    4. No offence taken, I honestly wasn't sure what you meant. Thanks for your agreement.

  5. Why is SY stolen Crayonboi 's idea?Is it because SY already have no idea?

    1. It's much easier to take an existing design which has proven popular than to go to the effort of making a new one. Pretty much all 'new' minifig designs from either company are copied from flickr or a custom minifig shop. China has no regard for copyright law.

      I was actually surprised by the 4 figures from the previous post because I couldn't find anywhere they had been copied from. Decool's zombies were fairly original too, although each was based on a normal minifig to some extent. It still takes some skill to duplicate the silk screen patterns to print the designs onto the minifigs, and SY has gotten fairly good at it.

    2. I love custom lego.Too great eh?

    3. Oh,almost forgot.Thanks for the info

    4. i just received mine =).almost 9 days after this post. thanks to Celox for sharing these photos =). you may share with us to if you have anything to share =)

  6. i also would prefer them not copying others but actually to make their own designs. they have proven that they have the skill. however taking "inspiration" to some degree is imho okay. that's what all artists did for centurys and still do.

  8. I love your blog! few hours ago, I purchased a figure of Wonder Woman Sheng Yuan. I was extremely satisfied with the purchase, because buying Lego figures are very expensive in my country Venezuela. Compare the figure with images of the original figure and are 99.9% identical. And shortly after I bump into your blog. Thanks to you I can guide me where I can buy figures without losing out.
    Greetings from Caracas. :)

  9. Hey there! I think the green ironman is supposed to be mark31 (piston). maybe they "accidentally" put the green lantern there.

    here's a picture of mark31:

    1. hi buddy =)

      SY copy that Iron Man X Green Lantern designed by Crayonboi, right? but Crayonboi also have design of Mark 31 Piston.

      [img]http://i.imgur.com/xjpbpGd.jpg[/img]
      [img]http://i.imgur.com/O9op36z.jpg[/img]

      i really think SY purposely include that X-series ironman because they want to stretch out another mark in next series.

      Delete
    2. anyway, just for the time being.. if you have proper kit, erase the green lantern logo at the chest.. and tada... you got yourself mark31 piston lol. to be replaced later after SY issue the exact same design of mark31 like above. heheh

  10. What about Mark 37 for the Green Suit?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Mark 37 is Hammerhead, right..

  11. Hi sir, is it OK to paint the transparent figs from Dargo and retain the decal design? did they release non transparent version of this iron man set.

    1. By the way LEGO released the iron man mark 37 deep sea suit on 76048 set iron skull sub attack. he is wearing the same armor of the Mark 1 by decool, also deep space iron man (gemini/starboost) on 76049 avenjet set which includes the THANOS big fig.

      Delete
    2. Hi @ritche hortillo. I don't think that we can still maintain the original print after repaint the parts. or even we try, I'm sure the result won't look good. unfortunately they don't have these in non transparent parts. however just like you mentioned later, we can get the official LEGO figure for Mark 39 Iron Man Space (Gemini) from #76049 Avenjet Space Mission and Mark 37 Hammerhead from #76048 Iron Skull Submarine Attack. Last but not least Mark 33 Silver Centurion from polybag :))))

      Delete
  12. i bought the sy 295 set just to get the iron mark 33,nice arm and leg side printing. How is it comparable to the original lego gamestop polybag mark 33 silver centurion? we will wait for the knock offs of these 2016 iron man minifigs and thanos big fig. The lego civil war set 76051 airport battle i a 'big' spoiler of the movie, the set includes GIANTMAN! Does it mean we will see ant man (scott lang) turn into GIANTMAN in the movie?
