Posted by MrUnknown (1700 posts) - - Show Bio

 (Pardon me, if this has already been done but I couldn't find anyplace where all these variants from about a year back were collected and profiled. In fact, some of these have even never been posted!)

 
All of these in order: 
Iron Man as:
1. A knight by Marko Djurdjevic
2. Da Vinci inspired by Gerald Parel
3. envisioned in French Art Deco style by Mike Del Mundo
4. Samurai by Skottie Young
5. Tesla inspired by Mike Del Mundo
6. WWII soldier by Joe Kubert
7. A caveman by Christian Nauck
8. Steampunk by Skottie Young
9. Strange robot by Tetsuya Aoki
10. Cowboy by Ronnie del Carman
11. An airplane by Bill Presing
12. An ancient Roman by Gabrielle Dell'Otto
13. depicted in Art Nouveau style by John Tyler Christopher
14. in Civil War by Mike Perkins
15. WWI soldier by Nic Klein
16. A car by Dave Talor
17. An ancient Egyptian by Adi Granov
18. Pinball machine by Greg Horn 
19. of Mayan origins by Humberto Ramos
20. Monster Hunter by Fred Genet
21. An atlantean by Greg Horn
22. Abstract by Alan Aldridge
23. Ancient Greek by Greg Tocchini
24. A clock by Genndy Tartakovsky
25. A viking by Esad Ribic
 
Which ones are your favorite? Can you think of anymore cool design ideas? I thought about Iron Refrigerator and Iron Man as a pirate!
If anyone's interested, we could have a cool Iron Man design contest but all of the ones already done are prohibited. You have to come up with some different cool ideas!

really like no.9 and no.12, no.2 looks like a prototype for his designs which is pretty cool

I think my personal favorite is the John Tyler Christopher one. I've always been a sucker for Art Nouveau.

@RedK: Good catch! It even has the same pose as his first appearance! Since Da Vinci had a design and functionality concept for a helicopter in his diary, an Iron Man suit like this one doesn't feel like such a huge stretch!
  My favourites besides this one are the Knight, Caveman and WWI version. Also, the Pinball version looks crazy amounts of awesome!

14, 15 and 18 are by far my favorites.  They're all very interesting though and this is a really cool idea.  If you decide to hold the contest I'll definitely try to work in the time to work on an entry. :D

Ah nice, thanks for collecting all in one place! I loved this idea... I wish Thor and Cap followed suit... I didn't like their themes as much...

@M.S. Feather: Do I need any kind of permission to make the contest then? 
@SC: Thanks for appreciating; it took a lot of time to scan all of these! What was Thor's theme? I agree about Iron Man getting the best deal! ;)

12. Gladiator by Gabrielle Dell'Otto 
13. Art Nouveau style by John Tyler Christopher 
17. Ancient Egyptian by Adi Granov
25. Viking by Esad Ribic

Thor's theme was classic movies. So for one variant cover it was Thor and Jaws and another was like Thor and The Graduate etc some were okay and funny, but none were really as cool as Iron Man's.
