Just saying that the sculpt you're claiming doesn't look like him is not a sentiment shared by most IM fans on this board, but everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Extremely unlikely, due to costs involved. Exclusives like this are probably only gonna be repaints. If they were gonna do a BD version, it would be a regular release I'd wager.

I would have to kindly disagree with Mr Void about the IV HS as I think it looks like RDJ as much so as OC EX Batman looks like Bale, both great sculpts.

I'm actually on the camp that prefers IV HS over Mech Test HS as the definative RDJ.

While the Mark 1 suit is still one of the best figures ever made by HT, I think that HS looks more like my cousin Johnny than RDJ. :lol

i don't give a ____ which license it is. i have all the IM marks. my point is HT used to be a cool company doing cool licenses and doing them justice. when was the last time they pulled out something classic and awesome like aliens. those are the days i loved, back when most of the board were still kissing 1/6 SS butt. they were something new and they were doing ____ they loved.

they just aren't the same company they used to be. the brand has changed. yes, they're producing amazing figures, but they've lost their edge and their cool.

There isn't really anything to defend. This is just like the Silly Things variant that eventually became a Con Exclusive Gunmetal Grey. HT is simply making a figure for a partner that is exclusive to them and to celebrate an anniversary. It isn't a necessary release like they did with Scarecrow for example but it will be a pain in the ass nonetheless.

I read this on facebook, thought it was pretty damn funny.



I think HT has a dart board with only pics of Batman, Iron Man, Predator and a random misc pic. They then blind fold an employee, spin him around and he throws the dart. All throws gravitate to Iron Man.



All the crying on facebook is pretty good too. Not as great as the Mark I re-release though.

Yeah, people have been posting MILK articles and pics for a while in HT threads so I don't think too many people thought that HT was joining up with a Dairy magazine. I still say they paint the whole thing white and put black spots over it, put a damn bell and some utters on Rhodey.

i don't think anything about what i'm saying is obvious to you, josh. that's not an insult, just means we come from different consumer lifestyles i think. as a result i think we're probably arguing entirely different things. but just for the record, my argument was about HT as a brand. and i have said it already, but it was lost - there's more to a brand than how big it is. i never said they should just make preds, aliens etc. that would make them as boring as they are now. i was talking more generally about that era, where no-one was really touching these classic movie licenses, and they did. i loved the idea of an HK company doing figures from rambo for example. it wasn't the latest blockbuster hit or guaranteed sell. it was just coz they loved the movie. that draws me to a company. a deeper love for a license than just the money.

but once a company gets a certain size or popularity, they're bound to make more financially viable decisions. i think it was inevitable they went that way. i've never seen a brand survive with its original appeal in tact after such growth. and i've studied this ____. but even their communication has changed. the way they talk to their fans, their press releases, it shows condescension and i don't like that.

The Mike
10-05-2011, 10:42 AM
How do you know that?

Simple logic.

If it were a release with changes then HT would not only want to recoup the money spent in R&D but maximize their profits so they'd make it a widespread public release to move and sell as many units as possible.

As the Milk Magazine piece, they did one of these for Silly Things, a store in HK and eventually made it a Con Exclusive to kill two birds with one stone. One would naturally think that this would run the same boat with them and move to a simple color variant in order to appease Milk Magazine as a piece exclusive to them that they'll probably sell through Toy Hunters for fans as well and we are hoping through SSC in limited quantity as well, same as the "Gun Metal Grey" which in HK was the "Silly Things version".

It isn't logical for a company who is capitalizing on Iron Man releases obviously by reissuing and redoing them to create something brand new specifically for a company and not sell as many as possible. This is a Con Exclusive type of thing just without the Con to back it up.

I do get what you're saying. Not really going to go any further OT with this. I'm sorry they're not making figures from Rambo, Rocky, Aliens, etc as much anymore. I'm not gonna complain because IMO the Iron Man series is better than all of them combined so them doing figures from that series is right up my alley. As far as their communication they are to me no better than they have ever been.

i wish i knew, i want to get WM, and can for a fairly decent price, but i don't want there to be another come out that i should've waited for.

When it comes to the iron man line they seem to to be remaking previous figures that are superior than the originals, i.e Mark 3 BD and Mark 2 AU.

I dug up this post of mine from the War Machine thread, i got WM a bit late and didn't want to miss out, but also thought it was possibly that HT would remake it like the MK 2 and didnt want the inferior version.

Well i bought War Machine (a little above retail) and feel its the best of my iron man collection and i have no urge to update it if this one for a "new" version

if this is wm painted like the SP Iron man then ill buy as im working on a whole alternate marvel universe and am wanting all my heroes in dark scale colored outfits (SP Iron man, Black spidey, this WM and some others as they come to me) if not than its an easy pass.

Personally if I had to pick a single HT line and stick with it I would pick Iron man for sure (unless they begin diving into Metal Gear with 20+ figures) but its easy to see that HT is gunna fall if they keep going this route, there are only so many collectors in the world with only so much space/money, something will give....

This is interesting to say the least. If it looks great and has much better articulation. If you can actually rotate the head, then I will def buy it. If it's the exact same figure but in different color then it's a def pass.

Damn... once again we are faced with the "age old question" sell now and buy the new one just in time or wait until revel time when it will be possibly to late to get the most of a collectible.

I doubt there could be much improvement in such little time though. I'm gonna go with the people suggesting this is just a color change.

All these constant re-releases and this milking is making me consider selling all my IM figs. I like to be a completists with movie series and I just can't keep up. HT are alienating certain fans.

I am all with you on this. I totally lost interest in HT.
No more respect. Next time don't use limited 1/6th collectible.

darkknight
10-05-2011, 09:17 PM
Honestly I am also losing interest, but it's a good thing. Makes me not spend. Hot Toys is still top notch but IMO they went down a notch or 2. Part of collecting is owning a limited figure etc etc. Oh well business first.

You don't need to have every figure in a line to have a nice collection. So much healthier to just pick and choose the ones you really like, and be OK with not having the figures you would normally feel obligated to buy.

With that mindset, I find that silly gimmicky releases like this don't bother me one bit. Why should I fret over something I probably won't buy?

IrishJedi
10-05-2011, 09:38 PM
I'm sorry they're not making figures from Rambo, Rocky, Aliens, etc as much anymore. I'm not gonna complain because IMO the Iron Man series is better than all of them combined

Wait, wait, wait... a you saying that the Iron Man figure series is better than all of those others combined, or that the Iron Man movies are better than the Rocky, Aliens, etc movies combined??

I agree 100%; I'm starting to think this way. I love Iron Man but trying to grab each and every single release is a wallet killer and too crazy. I will just pick the pieces I like and be fine with it.

As for HT, enough is enough! As an IM fan, I love that they release figures of him but too many already! I feel you are just milking this line! Another War Machine? C'mon, do something else, Hammer drone perhaps? Whiplash armor (at the end)? Anything else?? :slap

I meant the figures more than anything. As far as films go I like the Rocky and Rambo series but prefer the Iron Man series more, and while visually interesting I don't care for the Aliens films at all. So I would take the Iron man films over all of them if I had to choose.

I like the LOTR reference by the way. :rock

Same here, i bought it months ago when HT started up the remake badwagon knowing it could be an old version, and you know what... It still is one of my best figures.

Very true, i have four Iron Man figures, less than my five terminator figures.

The reason i fret over these is i now want figures from other licenses, but with Iron Man being the cash cow, those figures aren't getting made and probably wont :(
