As with the Hollywood way of things, it's time to talk about the Iron Man 2 merchandise; the high end figures made by anime figure creators Kotobukiya and others to be exact.
I'll be stocking 4 figures from the movie and though I'm not the big US comic fan...I'm so tempted to keep them.
The first being the Mark VI Iron Man Fine Art figure by Kotobukiya. This one will eat up your wallet at about $180 but this 1/6th scale piece lights up at the base and no doubt will be great for bragging rights.
The next figure is by One 2 One; The Mark VI Super Deformed Statue. He lights up and is about a 1/5th-1/6th scale. He doesn't look posable but it's still a very neat piece. Like all of the other figures I'm blogging about here, it's a bit pricey at about $150 but if you are a fan, you probably won't care too much ^^;;
War Machine made his movie debut in Iron Man two and naturally Kotobukiya made a high end, 1/6th scale replica. Like the Mark VI figure, this one lights up but will be a little easier on the wallet at around $135. There is a cosplayer out there that made a really good War Machine costume with a rotating gun and all. Supposedly though, the guy is an ego maniac who doesn't share the costume making skills.
What blog post by me would be complete without some hot or cute girl figure to show off? Also up for pre-order is the Iron Man 2 - 1/6th scale Black Widow Limited Edition Figure by Hot Toys. She's a posable, 1/6th scale figure that will run you a whopping $200. A nice addition to a collection indeed ^^
Check out more images and details in the store and expect these come the end of the summer/year.
