Hot Toys Iron Man Mark IV & Mark VI Figure Reissues Up for Order!

Although Hot Toys has nearly drowned collectors in new Iron Man sixth scale figures over the past few years, one thing that they haven’t really done is straight-up reissue old figures–until now! In a real surprise twist today, Hot Toys announced that two of their most expensive and sought-after Marvel Movie Masterpiece Series figures are coming back for a return engagement: limited exclusive reissues of Hot Toys Iron Man Mark IV & Mark VI are now up for order!


Months ago, Hot Toys announced that they were going to exclusively re-release some of their best-selling Iron Man MMS figures of all-time at their flagship store in Shanghai. As quite a while has passed since then, most folks assumed that these 1/6 Iron Man reissues would truly only be available in Shanghai.

But it seems that Hot Toys had other ideas, and is now planning to give their domestic fans a crack at these highly-demanded re-releases–exclusively via Sideshow Collectibles!

This is obviously going to collapse the aftermarket values of both original editions of these figures, although that effect may be dampened somewhat by the fact that the reissues are available exclusively through the Sideshow Collectibles website in the United States and are limited to one-per-person.

Iron Man Mark XLII also got a re-release at the Shanghai flagship store, but there’s been no announcement of Mark 42 making an encore appearance in North America (yet).

How do you feel about Hot Toys re-releasing exact replicas of previously sold out figures, Marvel collectors? Are you cool with letting more people have a chance at sought-after collectibles, or are you concerned with the long-term damage that reissues might cause to the value of your collection and the value of Movie Masterpiece Series figures as a whole?
