Hot Toys Iron Man Mark XLII 1/6 DieCast Figure Up for Order!

While Tony Stark may have billions of dollars to spend on building his fleet of forty-plus Iron Man armors in this year’s “Iron Man 3” movie, most collectors are a little (okay, a lot) more strapped for cash. Even so, Hot Toys collectors have been willing to open their wallets again and again to add to the amazing series of Hot Toys Iron Man Movie Masterpiece figures. This year Hot Toys is raising prices and upgrading the Iron Man 3 figures to feature diecast parts, and the second figure in the new Hot Toys 1/6 Scale Diecast figure line will be the main “Iron Man 3” movie armor–the Iron Man Mark XLII…

Iron Man Mark XLII will be the second figure in the Hot Toys Movie Masterpiece Diecast series, as the Iron Patriot figure that went up for pre-order a few weeks ago was the first entry in the line. The big deal with the Diecast Movie Masterpiece Series is that the sixth scale figures will now feature 40% diecast parts and 60% plastic parts, whereas up until now all Hot Toys Iron Man figures were 100% composed of plastic.

Iron Man Mark 42 will have the usual light-up features as well as interchangeable battle damaged armor parts, articulated air flaps on the back of the armor to deploy, and the great new repulsor blasting Iron Man hands.

This particular Tony Stark head is wearing the Iron Man helmet with the faceplate up, and has a trickle of blood on his face. This looks so realistic it’s a little creepy–I’d almost swear that’s just a photo of Robert Downey Jr. himself!
