What do you get the new CEO of an important (but unstable) corporation that will serve as a desktop toy as well as annoy the pants off her former boss who recently got drunk and publicly embarrassed her?
There is plenty of merchandise for Iron Man 2 out now since the movie has been released. Some of it cool, some not so cool. But there is nothing like making a slightly obscure item from the film available to the public. That is why I love that within a week of the US release of the film, ThinkGeek has found and gotten the rights to sell the Swinging Stick Kinetic Energy Sculpture.
For those of you who haven’t seen the movie yet, Tony Stark tries to make amends with Pepper and while trying to be honest with her, gets distracted by a moving sculpture. Tony being Tony, he can’t focus on the situation at hand and the moment to tell her the truth passes. The sculpture is the exact same design seen in the movie and is very good quality. Because of that, it is almost $240. But for hardcore Iron Man fans, it might just be worth it.
If you haven’t seen that particular scene, ThinkGeek has recreated it for you (it’s practically verbatim, actually). Don’t worry, it doesn’t give away very much as far as plot goes.
