If its just that I can live without it. Well, I could anyways but would skip it without a figure to place inside of it already.

Cool, but now it's clear they really enjoy milking this line...

...why not give the Predator fans some environments (a wall to put all the skull trophies maybe)?

The Mark IV was $165. Thats including the figure, the tony head and this lighted base plus the donuts, glasses etc.

How can this be $100 :huh

$40-50, I'll buy a couple.

Anymore than that, I'll pass.

Looks exactly like the Oribi ones to me. If HT was smart they would price them the same, they do have the advertising to push the product to market betterr than Oribi, but more savvy collectors at least have a choice if the price is in the $120+ range.

They are going full steam ahead with the IM line, boy Iron Monger now this. Bring on Whiolash mark 2, and some Hammer Drones. Fanboys like me keep feeding the beast of a liscense!

Mark VI was $175 and it didnt come with the lighted base. The SDCC was more because it was an exclusive :huh:lol

The gantry was far more complicated than these and cost like $250? I dont think 2 and a half of these = 1 gantry.

Yeah, you are right , Yank. We'll find out soon enough :1-1: I hope you are wrong though, so more of us here can pick these up :rotfl

09-24-2011, 02:09 AM
wow, was debating on getting the custom HoA, glad I didn't pull the trigger yet. Hmm.. Will have to see more spec on this one before deciding which way to go. Paint looks a lot better on the HT one, but it probably wont have wall outlet power supply like that custom one..

hm.. decision, decision... :panic: :monkey1

I went by SSC retail price and the Mark 6 was $214.99 and so was the Mark IV SDCC Ex. :huh:lol

The gantry on SSC is $359.99, and $499.99 with the Mark IV fig. :dunno

Personally I don't think 4 and a half of these = Gantry. :lol

I dont keep up to date with SS's pricing for HT items as they are usually priced more than what I POed here where I'm located.(Mark IV was $165 and mark VI $175)

Oh you are so right :lol I'd pick Gantry over 4 and a half of those any day man :rock

This is pretty cool, but not for me since I don't have the full lineup of Mk's. I could only allow myself to get this if I could do the full HoA. It would have been nice if HT would have made these first and packaged them with all the Mk's from the beginning. This just makes it look like they want to bleed IM fans dry.

Is it just me or does it seem like the best way to get HT to make something is to make a custom based on a license they have?

Not something I would buy tight away, as there is so much coming out but I like it, definately interested. As for a TDK Armoury and other dios, surely can't be too far away. It just can't be.

And also at this rate, looking forward to seeing the next Iron Man Dio. The Giant Randy's Donught.

This is getting pretty ridiculous now. Their firsth environment/dio was for Iron Man and their second is also for Iron Man.

Spread the love a bit HT.

Luckily i had to cancel the MK2 AU, otherwise i'd be getting this for that figure.

I dont see myself putting all of my iron man figs in static poses in these things.

Will look great for those who get multiples amd make their own hall though.


...


But this NEEDS to be $110 at most.

Theres no articulation and engineering movement crap to justify a huge price

This is good though actually, hot toys are releasing loads lately, so the occasional overpriced one that comes along that i'm not interested in takes the slot of something that quarter, then i can afford the one i do want the next quarter. :D

Or a jungle environment for displaying the figures.

They do spread the love by making figures for other licenses, but the Iron Man license I would guess makes them the most money of anything they've got so not doing PLENTY of items would be dumb.

Yeah but in terms of Dios or environment pieces, their first in a quite a while was for Iron Man and the next is again for Iron Man.

Before that it was two for Batman (Tumbler & Pod), so i think some Predator Dios are long overdue.

I'm sure they'll get around to it but my guess is Predator doesn't generate as much $$$ as Batman and Iron Man. You're gonna go where the cash is.

The Mike

Fantastic idea, great setup possibilities, horrible timing. HT is definitely milking the IM license but they aren't playing it smart. So much from the same license coming out so close together means that even the best IM fans can't keep up.

I don't need to feel better about not picking this up, Josh. It's an easy pass not just for me, but for most.
People will also tell themselves anything to make them feel better about picking up even the most arbitrary piece from a line.
I like this line. I collect it. But this was not needed. Don't feel bad about not getting it. Would rather have seen something better produced. And if you collect the line, how many of these things would you need to buy?
Anyway, we all have our opinions and just because I don't like this, doesn't make me wrong. I will vote with my wallet. :peace

Didn't say you did about picking this up. I was agreeing with Mike in that for some reason people are convinced one item means they're not doing something else. Unless it comes with a Mark I figure its an easy pass for me and I'm a big Iron Man fan. Honestly, I couldn't care less if they made this or not but I'm not gonna get worked up over it.

Pretty much but that goes with all collecting. I didn't need to have Wolverine when he was released and ended up paying more for him because once I started collecting Marvel, I HAD to have him.

Orbi quoted me about $450 for 5 + $120 for shipping to PA from China but they use a USB for the power source. Since I will only turn it on when I first get it and to show off to others that is not a big deal but when the price for this is announced I will make my decision on which company will get my $.

09-24-2011, 05:23 PM

You're all on drugs if you think these things won't go for more than $100.00. The Gantry thing alone was $300+.
With the lights and the size,it'll be around $100 - $175 each.
Will they come with glass or plastic for the front or just be open front where dust can collect?
They also WON'T re-release the Mark 1. You either got it or you didn't get it. I sadly didn't get it :(
If I had the room for these I'd get them,to say it's an easy pass,no,I wouldn't say that at all.
For saying the IM line is being milked and how many Iron Man do you need? Well the same can be said for the Batman line.
As for a Pepper figure,I'd rather see her made than another Joker or Batman figure. They should make a Gordon or Alfred figure too.

To give it the look of just armor,not Stark wearing it and standing there.

stealth is actually the AU Mark II mold modified/repaint. Although old Mark II is the original Mark III modified/repaint if you want to count that one..

Theres regular Mark IV, Gentry with Mark IV re-release, and Secret Project Mark IV. Also Mark VI reuses most of mark IV parts if you want to count that too.

Iron man figs are kind of like Predator figs; most of them reuse old parts with a different paint variant etc.. Only Mark I, BD Mark III, and Mark V are all original with no re-used parts. (at least for now..)

I'm sure we'll eventually get a Mk III and a Mk I v2 but HT will warrant it, something will be different. Looking at these, if they wanted they could do an Mk I without Stark sculpt and market it as the HoA suit for display if they wanted to in order to keep the first still unique. Just because they said it wouldn't get sold with these doesn't mean it still won't eventually. IM is making a lot of cash for HT and they are definitely going to squeeze the last bit out of it.

Yeah, but one wonders why they showed that particular model in the HOA.

Well lets look at it in business terms...

If HT makes it. Those who do want it, will (mostly) buy it = Cash for Hot Toys

if HT doesn't make it. Those who don't want it made will be happy = No Cash for Hot Toys

So i imagine they will remake it, but it will raise alot of controversy on if HT are collectibles.

I usually don't mind it they remake things, but if they were to remake Blade i'd be happy for those who missed it but i'll also think it'd make mine feel a little bit less special.

In terms of remakes, if they do the same character in a different way or from a different film, then it'll please everyone.

Like a battle-damaged Wolverine, it'd be unique enough from the original that both those who missed and those who have the original would be happy.

Hope the side walls can pop of easily enough, or are made to do so, to make it accurate being displaying one than one side by side, otherwise will have a double wall lining, with lights. Just realised whilst writing this that probally won't be possible as I doubt battery supply is in side walls, so will have wire coming from side light to base, unless they make a contact plate which I doubt. So therefor the Custom ones beig made by Orbit may actually be better for those going for a full option of a hall of armour. Will have to wait on the spec from Hot toys.

Everyone always talks about how if you're in this hobby you should be in it for the love of the figure and no looking at making a profit on flipping figures. Why is everyone here suddenly worried about figures being remade? Shouldn't we be happy a new ones coming along with "better" features? It's like the PS going to a PS2 then the PS3. Or Sony coming out with a new 60" screen tv. It's just a newer version.

so, do you buy or lease a car every year? By buying the new version it shows Hot Toys that not only the people that missed out the first time are gonna get it, but the ones that got the first version are willing to use their hard earned money on the second, third, or fourth version of it.

Like the Mark IV vs. Mark VI if you really look at it, its a repaint with a few changes in some peoples eyes. I bought both because I wanted both. some people decided to just get one cause it was too much money to buy 2 figures that were so close in appearance.

Yeah but keep in mind...these Hot Toys figures aren't mass produced Hasbro figures either. When you spend the kind of money on these figures, you expect to get the best possible representation of the character/person possible.

The thing with Hot Toys that irks me is that these upgrades aren't to improve their craft. The bottom line is the almighty dollar. They know by rereleasing popular figures with upgrades they'll not only lure new collectors getting into the hobby but have collectors double dip on the same characters. From a business standpoint, they are apt to make alot of money...but sooner or later (like anything else) collectors will get tired and find something else to collect.

It's their company and their choice how they spend their money on their product. It's our choice how we spend ours. When we the buyer's move on and buy other products and they go out of business they'll learn from their mistakes.

Oh absolutely. I understand that as a company they make choices to appeal to their niche demographic. As a collector, there are always choices as far as what to collect. Just realize that not everybody is on board with reissues or rereleases of previous figures. It's not something Hot Toys was specifically known to do (until this past year).

I don't want to see HT go out of business...but rereleases will only take them so far. I understand why collectors get upset and I respect their opinion on the matter. Is that stopping me from getting an updated Jack Sparrow figure? Nope...But I question myself on what upcoming figures will be getting updated in the future. To be honest, it's changed my way of collecting and I haven't been buying nearly as much as I have.

you are assuming every collector has the same resources as you to buy a lot of these figures but some of us are still students or have a family to raise. for people like us, it is a slap in the face when we use our previous resources and then a year later a better version of the same figure is released.

They are not 2 different things. They are both goods offered to the public that we can buy. although, a car would probably be more important to have, unless you live in....... wait I got sidetracked.

trust me man, I wish i had all the resources in the world. I have plenty of bills, and a family to feed. Sometimes as much as I hate it, I can't afford to get the updated versions of all the goodies I like.

I agree with Nitro on the fact that I don't want then to go out of business, When a company I like makes decisions that I think are bad I give them the my opinion. If they continue to make these decisions, I eventually have to give them the most harsh criticizing by simply stopping my business with them.

Which is better then?


Re-Issuing a figure exactly as was from the same production model.

Re-making a figure in a different manner, with different accessories, different sculpt, different materials, what have you


Lets take the MK 1 for example:


New sculpt, interior details lf Tony Stark, computer start up system, eye lights.


This route improves upon the original release, making the previous release redundant.

But what if...


Tony Stark with chest RT and car battery figure with MK 1 armour components that can attatch to the figure.


This route is different enough from the original, similar enough to the original and offers something new to both the collector who bought the original and those who missed out.

That would be cool. It would be fair to previous buyers of the Mark I to change it up so it's not exactly as the first release. It would be in their best interest to keep previous customers satisfied but at the same time offer a product that to a new customer or one that did not pick it up the first time. That would be good business.

I'm not trying to be a Debbie downer but I think HT has shown that they really don't care too much about giving us an excuse for their re-releases or variants, they know they will sell regardless if collectors who bought the 1st like it or not. This is evidenced by the re-release of the Mark 4 with the gantry that is exactly the same as the original that released not very long ago. The Mark 4 SDCC repaint is another.

Like every has been saying all along, why should they care? They are running a business and there is a market out there for re-releases/repaints (folks who like variants, folks just joining, folks who didn't get a chance to purchase during the original release, etc.). I think it's good business, IMHO.

Agreed. I don't plan on selling my IM figures down the road so this doesn't bother me from that point of view. The only gripe I would have is that maybe the company could be spending time developing something new for the line instead of rehashing previously released models. But, since HT answered my prayer for the Iron Monger I'm happy as a pig in mud so re-re-re-re-release all you want boys!

i am not bothered that they make the rerelease better, i am bothered because they have a bad habit of purposely releasing the first one without adding stuff they know they can add because they are already planning for a rerelease. this happened with the mark 3, the joker, the dark knight batman, etc, etc.

yes because the tech industry and the collectible industry are the same things. why doesn't sideshow rerelease pffs? i don't see any other high end collectibles company doing it to hot toys' degree.

also, what is up with ppl always defending a company's lame strategy? you do not own it nor are you a part of it so stop giving me the "its ok because every business does it" excuse. if you are just mad because you missed out on a MK 1 or something just say that.

it is always the kids who just started collecting hot toys who are the biggest hot toys butt kissers. and there you go with the gifs again. is it not possible for you to communicate your thoughts using just words?

it seems like you are missing the point. not all of us have our mommies giving us money to preorder everything hot toys releases like you. an iphone is not a collectible like a figure. if i had a iphone, i would not really care if they release a better one since i am buying it for practical purposes, not for its value as a collectible.

no other collectibles company does the rereleasing thing in such a short time span as much as hot toys. you can't answer why sideshow doesn't do it as much or any other company with a huge market share like bandai.

actually, bandai is even more notorious when reissuing and remaking. HT is just following their footsteps I think:lol

Dunno if youve ever heard of the SH Fgiuart or Saint Cloth Myth line by Bandai, they actually reissued the Gold saints like 4-5 times already, without adding or changing the sculpts or box design.

This year, they just remake the entire Gold saints line with new body and sculpts. Collectors complain, but so long as they are making quality collectibles, collectors would still end up buying anyways :huh

As princess Leia said to Han, "you assume too much."

Dude we get it that some people don't like re-releases, some of us don't mind. I am gonna respect the MOD's wishes stay on topic for now.

SO.....I haven't looked up this and research these bases and maybe someone posted and I missed it. If so I apologize for the following question:

Anybody know if the bases are gonna be battery powered? I hope not. I rather they can be plugged in to an electrical outlet.

Mrjasontodd mentioned that the custom ones can be connected but i'm curious about the official Hot Toys ones. I do admit the custom ones are sweet though.

Everyone always talks about how if you're in this hobby you should be in it for the love of the figure and no looking at making a profit on flipping figures. Why is everyone here suddenly worried about figures being remade? Shouldn't we be happy a new ones coming along with "better" features? It's like the PS going to a PS2 then the PS3. Or Sony coming out with a new 60" screen tv. It's just a newer version.

Yeah, I was thinking that too. I already have the one that came with the Mark IV, the Mark V will be coming with one, and I believe the Mark II does too. so that would be nice to know. It would be nice if they do with and without the base as some of us already have a few. Save some bucks.

They should make a cardboard background; similar to the Mech Test one but longer and taller. It would go great with the complete Hall of Armor set.

Why should they? They can make more money selling them seperately. They aren't going to do anyone any favors. There's too many who are willing to fork out hundreds of dollars more to get the re-issues of these armours, so I'm sure they'll buy these as well. And it says on the picture that the figure isn't included. It would be nice to have the base with every one, but if they do that, they'll just add the $180 to the cost of the figure.

I like that a lot. I actually prefer a full HOA like that, instead of the individual cubicles HT is making. It's more like an actual diorama that way, like the gantry.

They want that much for the halls? No offense but I don't care how many LEDS they say it has, I've seen more intricate stuff made in the Philippines for less!

For the side panels... I think they used CCFLs instead of LEDs...

While I have to agree with that, I do think the prices are a little too high. I'd be surprised if they have any takers. Esp since they already have 2 other competitors. One in Oribi that is cheaper and then there's HT whose stand is actually officially licensed

These are neat but space is a commodity on my shelf.

yep same for me, I only have a width 0f 24" on my shelf and the Hall of Armors(4 Stage) is 33" wide. it does look pretty sweet though.

Yeah well as a non Iron Man collector my sense is if the price was like $150-200 lower for the fully decked out set, and similarly lower across the board, it would have much better value

Would love that Stage 4 HOA, but 33" is too wide.

What are the dimensions on that single case that Hot Toys is developing?
Four of those side by side should be a little narrower.
