Hot Toys To Outfit Iron Man Figure Collectors With A 1/6 Scale Hall Of Armor
The Iron Man 3 trailer gave fans a grim vision of an approaching future where all of Tony Stark’s classic armors are blown to hell by his enemies. Hot Toys fans needn’t fear such badness for their 1/6th scale collections, however, as the company has an Iron Man 2-era Diorama Series due out around May that recreates Tony’s Hall of Armors in action figure form. Encasing suits (figures sold separately, of course) in movie-accurate pods fitted with transparent displays complete with hologram-like stickers and LED light-up functions, HT’s Hall of Armor looks like it could work wonders to transform a collector’s comparatively humble abode into something resembling Tony Stark’s cliffside mansion basement workshop… if they can afford it.

I wish I could have these….and the hot toys figures…dammit
Square-Enix Play Arts Kai Batman the Dark Knight movie series figures.
The sculpts look good but they usually do. It’s at the paint step when things have been falling apart for Play Arts figures. See: Mass Effect and Batman: Arkham Asylum.
Quite Possibly The Coolest Batman Action Figure Ever
This is the limited edition Super Alloy “Batman by Jim Lee” figure from Play Imaginative. Standing in at approximately 12-inches, this beast has 50 points of articulation including fully articulate hands and fingers, die-cast metal torso, arms, and legs, magnets embedded in the feet so that it can be posed on the included dragon gargoyle base, removable cape, Batarang and grappling gun accessories, and the face even has skin-like texture.
This kind of fancy-pants hotness comes at a price, though: $270! Pre-orders are open from now until October 8. Check out Play Imaginative for more pics and info.Buy: Framed film cell from The Dark Knight
Peep it: More Batman posts
I have reblogged some pictures of this project over the last couple weeks but haven’t really chimed in with an opinion.
The guys at the head of this project are Tucker and Wayne. They are both long time toy designers and are responsible for some of the most well balanced and creative toys of our generation. Their credits include Jurassic Park, Xevoz and G.I. Joe Sigma Six. I am not that familiar with Xevoz, but the other two are huge influences on the way I think about toys.
The toy industry is struggling. Due to production costs toys are getting smaller and less articulated. Original ideas and properties are disappearing because any risk of failure is seen as too great.
Tucker and Wayne clearly love toys. They want to continue to put their efforts towards creative, well designed, thoughtful, high quality and fun toys.
Their proposed line is a series of cultural heros from folklore around the world. They have turned to Kickstarter to fund this project. The first figure is Rama from the Ramayana, an Indian epic.
I adore this figure. It is done in a similar style and scale to the Sigma Six line. As soon as hold one of those figures in your hand you can tell it was built with care. The stylisation is at a perfect level to add flair to the design without dumbing down the heroism of the character.
They need our pledges to move forward with this. The momentum is slow right now, but there is still hope. Scroll down on my blog and check out the many images. Follow the links to the project page and donate some coin. For a $35 pledge you can get one of these figures and ensure their other designs will get produced too.
