We’re less than five months away from the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and based on the glimpses we’ve seen in the trailer, plus the “Clean Slate Protocol” in Iron Man 3, Tony Stark is going to need some new gear for his next romp. Enter the Mark XLIII armor which he will don in the 2015 sequel, and fan-favorite toy makers Hot Toys have revealed their premium figure of the character from the film which delivers our first detailed look at Stark’s armor. Interesting enough, the armor appears to be the inverted color scheme of its predecessor, the Mark XLII. Here’s what Hot Toys says of the figure:
“To get fans ready for this super exciting film, Hot Toys is thrilled to jump start the Avengers: Age of Ultron collectible series by presenting the 1/6th scale Mark XLIII Collectible Figure! It is also the newest addition to our MMS Diecast Series which the collectible figures are made of diecast material, and realistically designed to look even more like the armor as it appears in the blockbuster.’
“The movie-accurate Mark XLIII Collectible Figure is highly detailed and specially crafted based on the image of Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark/Mark XLIII in Avengers: Age of Ultron, featuring a newly painted Tony Stark helmeted head sculpt, metallic red, gold and silver armor with weathered effects, LED light-up functions, and a specially designed diorama base with a damaged Ultron Mark I. A special edition will be available for selected markets which includes a LED lighted battle damaged helmet as bonus accessory.”
Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Thomas Kretschmann, Paul Bettany and Stellan Skarsgard. The Joss Whedon-directed film will debut in theaters on May 1, 2015.
