For Fans of Packaging?

There’s something to be said for packaging art. By nature, it has to appeal to the lowest common denominator and, at least on the surface, lacks any creative merit at all. But therein lies the artistry. If you can meld art and salability into one item, you are a magician.

I’m not entirely confident which Iron Man armor is represented by this Steven Butler packaging art. Nor am I sure what product it went to (underwear? toys? sting cheese?) But Steve has done some cool stuff (a real journeyman artist, but some of those random credits are in the “oh yeah, that’s neat” realm) and these piece would be a nice addition to any Iron Man completist’s collection.

This is during Tony Stark’s kneepad period and should be remembered, if not commemorated.
