So can anyone tell me what the difference is between the Mark 3 vs 4, 5 and 6? I'm trying to find pics, but having little luck. As far as i can tell the Mark 6 has the triangular chestpeice isntead of round. I can't seem to find much of any difference between 3 and 4 though.

I also picked up the Mark III and movie War Machine today, because I have no self restraint.  The biggest difference to me in the armors is the chest symbol (round vs. triangular).  The Mark IV-VI appear to be roughly the same body type, but with varying differences in paint jobs.

The Mark IV and Mark VI armors are almost exactly the same, except that the IV has the round arc reactor piece and the VI has the triangular arc reactor piece.  Though the Mark III and IV both have the round arc piece, they are different in many, subtle ways.
The Mark V armor is meant to be a lightweight, portable armor, and is noticeably different than all of the others.

Thanks for the tip.  My TRU was stocked with 10 pegs of IM figs, but they were all the Mark II/SCUBA-Armor wave.   I may take my receipt back from a week or two ago though as I think I paid $7 each for them.

I hit Wal-Mart later in the day and tracked down the War-Machine and Crimson Dynamo (only 1 left of each and superb paint jobs!).  I think I'm set on these until the next waves start to pop.

I took advantage of the TRU sale and picked up the Power Assault and Hypervelocity Armors today.  I don't think there's really much left of what's hit retail so far that I need to pick up.

On a related note ... did anyone else catch the new trailer last night after the Oscars?  Very nice!  And, it confirms that the Mark V armor is actually in the film.

Yeesh!

Mark V is in there and is way more awesome than I imagined it would be.

Just crossed out May 7th on my schedule so I can go to the first showing that morning!

And possibly stay for a 2nd.

Yeah, pretty neat to see the mark V in action. On a related note, is anyone else hoping they make a figure of those Hammer Drones?

Which armor is the Mark V? The triangluar reactor chest piece or the one that pops up from the brief case?

Just watched that trailer. WOW!

This looks even better than the first movie!

I can't wait to see it!

I picked up 4 figs on the way home from work at TRU courtesy of the sale/coupon.  They were really picked over and there was some pretty bad paint apps on the ones that were left outside of what I got, but hopefully these will satisfy my need without going any further.  I hate it when there's downtimes with SW/TF/Joe because I tend to do "stupid" things like this - even though these figs look great.   :-\
