Iron Man 3 Deep Space Suit Revealed: Starboost Armor

If you recall, not too long ago a white space suit armor from Funko leaked on the net early, dubbed the "Deep Space Suit" armor.
Well, we get another look at the armor this time from the Iron Man 3 Assemblers Hasbro line below.
I was at Toy R Us earlier with the little dudes and came across the familiar looking suit, and see they have it as the "Starboost Armor."
Recently, Robert Downey Jr. all but said that the Guardians of the Galaxy may be making a cameo in the Iron Man 3 with it thought Iron Man will fly into space side by side the Guardians in their movie as well.
An obvious connection between the two would be the Mandarin's Ten Rings Of Power as, in the comics, they have an alien origin.
However, back in October a report stated Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige said the rings' origin will have a different back story than the comics. While Feige didn't specifically state it wouldn't be alien or space-based, the report seemed to hint as such as that's the comic origin.
I guess we can speculate from what Robert Downey Jr. had to say and the space armor being revealed that they might be sticking closer to the comic origin for the Mandarin than previously thought.
Or is there something else?
Update: Amazon.com gives us the following description:
