    Some of you might be disappointed by this news, even though it should be exciting. The news is that the Limited Edition Iron Man Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will be officially unveiled next week. Furthermore, a teaser pic of the actual phone hiding in the shadows came along with the announcement of next week's announcement.

    Sadly, that is the part that may leave some of you feeling disappointed. From the teaser image it appears there will be a large and prominent Iron Man logo etching on the back of the device. Obviously if you are a huge fan of Iron Man, this might be good news. For many of us though, this will mar what could have been a beautiful device if it had just stuck with an Iron Man color scheme.

    That's not all the bad news. In reference to the Tweets that went out in Korean for the teaser, one of the hashtags that came with the image translates to '1000 limited edition.'" This likely means the device will be very limited and very expensive. Well... Poo! :(

    I don't think this phone will be sold by any carrier. Sammy direct and then eBay at twice the price...

    They needed the Iron Man helmet on there to really display that it's a special edition and what makes it a special edition. Had they just used the colors I don't think many people would "get it".

    Disagree Dezy.
    They don't need to "get it".
    If I was going to buy one of those, I am buying it for myself, for the rich Gold and Red color scheme. It's GORGEOUS!!!!
    If someone else looks at it and DOESN'T associate Iron Man with it... EVEN BETTER!!! :D
    Yea, we might be nerds, but I really don't want an ACTUAL Iron Man S6... just the colors.

    The color alone will make people ask you: "Wow, that's nice, what is it?"
    Leave it to me to decide if I want to mention it's the Iron Man edition...

    If the helmet is on there, it's a deal breaker for me.

    Oh no I totally agree that the Iron Man head is unnecessary and looks cheap. However, since it is an "Avenger" edition, they needed it. With just the colorway, it would've been just any other color. No doubt only certain people would buy this version, but you gotta remember it's Samsung who made it, so they gotta make sure that users and bystanders alike know that they're holding a special edition. You may not want others to "get it", but Samsung certainly does, and that Iron Man helmet makes it obvious.

    If it were just a red and gold s6, it really wouldn't signify an "edition" of anything, imo. Just a rare colorway that looked about 20x better without that decal.

    I'll save any further comments about the head being there until we actually see it.

    Save a finger for me, bk, I hate cases.

    I hate cases too. I can't bring myself not to use one though. It would be a shame to cover up those awesome colors.

    Especially if you are selling... no way the phone stays in same condition... plus these phones are slippery.. cold day in NY and it's laying on the ground bang up
