The Ironheart Mk II armor has been spotted on some Wakanda Forever merch. It looks a lot better than the Mk I suit we have seen so far. In this instance by way of some new Hasbro figures. Check it out below courtesy of @ironhnews.

Given some of the images we have seen so far, this Mk II suit is definitely starting to look more like the Ironheart suit from the comics. That should please a lot of fans. However what may be slightly harder to explain is the change of suit we have seen from BTS images of Ironheart filming. One assumes this Mk II suit is used in Wakanda Forever after initially using the (made from cars) Mk I suit. However the design for the suits in the Ironheart show looked less advanced than this Mk II suit we see above.
Feel free to check those BTS images within the related link below for a look at what I mean.
There are two possibilities I can think of. One that Shuri helps make the Mk II suit we see above using Vibranium. Then perhaps she tells Riri to go off and develop her own suit, for whatever reason? Alternatively the Mk II suit needs a power and bulk upgrade to handle whatever Riri is facing in the Ironheart series?
Can you think of any other reasons, for the suit above to be developed before the bulky one we see in Ironheart? If you can, let us know below. Also let us know what you think of this Ironheart Mk II armor, based on what you can see? Are you excited to see Ironheart’s debut in Wakanda Forever? Leave any thoughts you have in the usual spot below as always.
