The Whiplash Mark II’s incredible mechanical design has left a strong impression for Iron Man fans and since the appearance of collectible figure’s prototype at various Hot Toys exhibitions, fans have been longing for the official reveal of this amazing armor.

Hahaha, the face reminds me of someone, can't put a name to it at the moment, but someone else not Mickey Rourke LOL I was gonna say the guy who was Montero from Mask of Zorro but maybe someone else :lol

Wasn't a fan of the Whiplash character or the 2nd movie, other than War Machine and Justin Hammer, so pass for me. Cool looking figure though :yess:

Yeah, I was thinking I'll never display the Rourke headsculpt, but what an incredible release. Don't even want to speculate on price but either we'll be pleasantly surprised (which to me is around the $400.00 - $450.00 mark) or it'll be a bit of a gut punch. Given the pricing on the current diecast stuff, I'm guessing it'll likely be the latter. Great thing it's a long way to release, so plenty of time to budget. Definitely my most anticipated pre-order, bar none.

No kidding. Great figure, but the price is really going to sting on this one I think. Much bulkier than either Mk 42 or IP/WM.

02-04-2014, 11:56 PM
Sculpt looks great. Was hoping it wouldn't be diecast though, since it'll add about $50 to an already expensive/complicated figure.

02-04-2014, 11:57 PM
huh the head sculpt looks kinda odd. movie the armor never stopped at that point... was either all on or all down. o well. cool to see this done and to see the range of motion. but prob not for my collection still sweet

Came straight here after seeing this on FB. This has to be by far one of the best looking figs i've seen from HT. It really is a piece of engineering. And it's diecast it was a OMFG factor lol.

As much as I wanna get it, it's out of my price range but I'm going to love the in-hand pics lol

SuperHobo
02-05-2014, 12:20 AM
Even though the previous diecast pieces have been in the $300 range I hope it doesn't peak too far over that. Paying that much for a 1/6 figure is already scary let alone thinking about a $400 price tag.

hokietwo
02-05-2014, 12:22 AM
Sweet baby Jesus. This is going to look so awesome with the bd vi and WMI on the shelf. Absolutely blown away with the design and engineering. My guess is $419.99, please be less!:lol

gunm
02-05-2014, 12:29 AM
I'm going to guess $309.99-319.99. Similar to or a little bit higher than Mk XLII Diecast...

davehammer
02-05-2014, 12:39 AM
It's priced at $2430HKD for non VIP at Secret Base in HK.
Guessing around $330-$350 for Sideshow.

ya id like it to be that instead. but they look to have gone with him saying "gooood" wonder if the whiplash fig hs will be able to pop into this one?

rubenvoorhees1
02-05-2014, 12:59 AM
and the base isnt anything special. compared to the other one with hammer drone on floor that was better. im guessing all together we lookn about 350-450 figuring hes bigger then normal diecast fig (ironpatriot at like 300) but not as big as monger around 500.

Anthrapoid
02-05-2014, 01:27 AM
$359 is my guess, at least at SS.
It is a shame about the half-helm sculpt, but at least the whips have LED function.
I can't help but wonder how HT is going to handle that; will it have a string of LEDs
running the entire length of the whips? If so, bending and posing might eventually break the circuit.
On the other hand, if they have just one light source at each hand area, that would suck.
I'll rarely if ever display the lighted whips anyway, so no matter really.
Looks awesome, instant buy.

Wow i love this thing and will def try to get it but that MR hs is disappointing as it is clearly whiplash 1.0 hs. Did HT really think too stupid to notice
or remember? It even has the same squinty eyes look no less which looks kinda funny, they at least could have given us the entire 1.0 hs unmasked :slap

Looks good... will purchase. I just wish they had gone with the full headsculpt, I don't understand why they decided with this half headsculpt bs, he never looked like that in the movie. Oh, and light up whips were a nice bonus, if it hadn't come with it would be a no-buy.

The lighted whips are cool but it is such a pain to turn the lights on with these. I usually take a few pictures with the lights on when i get a new IM figure then pull the batteries and never use the lights again.

02-05-2014, 02:53 AM
I'm happy his base matches the mark IV base. I used it to put my war machine on it. This whiplash is definitely going to get posed with my WM in a fighting diorama. Light up whips wrapping around WM will look soooo sick!!

I think he is talking about WM MKII. The diecast on that makes a night and day difference. All my other IM figures sometimes feel like i might break something just holding them, the diecast feels solid and actually worth the money we pay for these things. I will admit I was not a fan of the switch to diecast but I am VERY impressed with the new WM.

Niltusk
02-05-2014, 03:43 AM
The sculpt looks like the helmet mid transformation, but as Walker said, I for one would never use it. I didn't care much for whiplash, but I love Iron Whiplash design and I'll never use a Rourke head sculpt with it.

He appeared at the very end of the movie wearing this suit. His Mark I was just the jumpsuit and harness.

I like this, I like the design, but seems a bit too industrial to me. I dont know...

I never got the original Mark I Whiplash and really wish that I did. However this one looks spectacular. I may be tempted depending upon the price. I think with the die cast I fear it could be really high.

Yes. The part when he stepped on War Machine and the feet clamps came down and sort of grabbed War Machine like a hand.

Really shouldn't dismiss diecast dude, I was skeptical too but it has done nothing but wonders for the warmachine mk 2, adding weight, ridiculous articulation and stability to the figure. Definitely worth a look.

Anyone thinking of passing on this just because it's diecast are missing out. I thought HT making the switch to diecast was a huge mistake but after getting WM MKII I owe HT an apology. It is an amazing piece of engineering. The only bad part so far is it makes me wish all the IM in my collection were diecast :lol

I'll wait on the diecast figures for a few years, See how well they hold up in the long run. Too much can go wrong with it, and I see the added weight as a negative, not a positive. It's also possible that the standard mms figures will see the added articulation on later releases.

Either/or, I'll tke the wait and see approach.

I'm new to this - any idea on how long it takes the preorder to go up from announcement of figure?

Secret Base had this for PO today for VIP members. Friday for everyone else. Who knows when SS will put it up. Today, Friday, next week?

Great piece. Will likely order it based on cool factor alone.

Am i alone thinking that Iron Monger should be redone with die cast parts?

If not alone, I'd think in the minority. Iron Monger already has a really nice finish and excellent articulation. Really don't see the benefit in going diecast with that character, especially since it's so large. *shrugs*

I would've been fine with Whiplash being plastic, too, to be honest, but definitely see the benefit of diecast (assuming the engineering is as solid as WM MK II). Hoping we see this up for pre-order, today. If price in HK is $309 US, guessing were looking at around $375.00 here, which is not too bad.

I disliked IM2 and the final battle between War Machine, IM and IW was pretty disappointing. Regardless, the design's brilliant and close enough to the comics that I can enjoy it just for that.

I can understand that, I do not care about the weight that much but I like the fact that i do not have to be as gentle with it as compared to my others that I sometimes feel if i hold them the wrong way they might break. If money grew on trees I would buy a second one and just toss it around to see how tough it really is.

I have to admit I'm still floored over this Whiplash Mark II figure announcement.

I'm grateful that Hot Toys actually went ahead and did this Mark II Whiplash (as well with Iron Monger), these were BY FAR my most wanted figures from the Iron Man film franchise and I didn't expect either one to become a sixth scale reality.

I think when Hot Toys shocked the world with the Iron Monger announcement was when the idea for this figure started to become a real possibility for us collectors. I remember the discussions we had on this forum years back where we talked about how amazing it would be to own an Iron Monger or Whiplash Mark II, and how we'd be willing to sell half our collections to own them, and now here we are guys!

I don't think of this figure and Iron Monger as needing to be paired personally. Putting the Mark III next to my Iron Monger just feels like it's getting in the way of Monger's awesomeness. I understand that some may feel the need to pair these up with their respective movie counterparts but in terms of visual awesomeness these can stand alone in a league of their own!

Again 100% agree. Although I really do want to own my first Iron Man figure I thought the Mark IV would be a good start since I really want to pick up the Gantry. That would be a sick display of it's own. Iron Monger would have it's own shelf.

Totally agree w/Y4NK33 and was going to mention this, myself. I wouldn't get hung-up on trying to recreate scenes or displaying the figures only in context of the movies. Like Y4NK33 mentions, a lot of times less is more and Monger displays incredibly on his own, as I'm sure Iron Whiplash will. I intend to have Monger and Whiplash on one shelf, with MILK War Machine, MW MK II and a re-released Mark IV (not in a rush, so won't pay aftermarket - plus, I'm convinced HT will re-release at least Marks III and IV in diecast) on another. May not make sense from a movie-specific POV, but I think they'll display great together.

Centurion is the same $250 and has an NRD, Starboost doesn't at $270. I don't think there is a hard and fast rule, its likely a combination of price and perceived demand.


And to go a little further regarding perceived demand, I'm wondering if the NRD is also reflective of how many HT is willing to make of a more expensive item. Along those same lines, maybe it also has something to do with how many units SSC is willing to distribute. NRDs might be treated as a "lock" for supply, so maybe HT doesn't have a set production run for that particular figure, and could make more or less depending on how many PO come in.

Thanks! Yep, they will be on a custom shelf so that both will have enough room to breathe. Just really like the idea of these two villains posed together. If using Detolfs, I totally agree, Monger displays best on his own (always hate seeing him crowded in with a couple other figures). Guessing it'll be the same with Whiplash on account of the whips. Lots of room required there to let them spool out. Damn these are great figures! :D

Mark IV's a great release and I like the gantry, but like Y4NK33, wasn't sure where I'd put it and I only have so much room for large pieces, like gantry, SW Dewback, etc. It's a great piece, though, so I can see why you want it.

It's kind of hard to figure out their system. I'd have thought if any figure would have an NRD, it'd be Starboost, given it's expensive and a unique design with I'd guess more limited appeal than the regular Marks.

I think most production quantities are based on pre orders. There are exceptions like the Con stuff but everything else is pre orders. Whether or not the distributor orders more to pad their inventory, is on them. It's why HT doesn't ever say how many and why some sell out faster then others.

Yeah it's just fun to speculate, I guess. ^_^ I don't know if PO alone will determine the production run because look at figures like Hawkeye that sell out well before release and do not get bumped up in final numbers. I think HT does set a limit based on what they think will sell and how much they can make given the production process, but it probably varies figure to figure. There's some min/max going on well in advance that's outside of what consumers really need to know.

I'll wait on the diecast figures for a few years, See how well they hold up in the long run. Too much can go wrong with it, and I see the added weight as a negative, not a positive. It's also possible that the standard mms figures will see the added articulation on later releases.

Either/or, I'll tke the wait and see approach.
Everyone should keep in mind that when HT says "die cast", that phrase is deceptive. The IM figures features SOME die cast parts, very probably certain sections of armor and nothing else. That being the case, I doubt it will effect articulation in the slightest, because the parts involved with articulation will be plastic as usual.
The downside that I foresee is a higher center of gravity than all-plastic figures, which may make tip-overs (and consequent breakages) more of a problem.

Cases like Hawkeye, I think the there was a mad dash at the end after totals were already sent to HT and production had started. I know I was waiting to make sure they were going complete the line(Watchmen). Remember, HT was not known for actually finishing out lines. When I started this hobby, if you didn't pre order then it was hard to get come ship time which I feel distributors only placed orders for a pre orders. This was still a growing market and those prices were thought to be high. The aftermarket was really pricey because of this. Then there was a time when nothing sold out. I feel distributors saw what figures were selling for in the aftermarket and decided to order extras to capitalize on the growing market. Now I think we are some where in the middle. Some are ordered a little heavier then others based on whether or not they think they can move them.

Once again, just my hypothesis.

After messing with WM, I'd love to see them revisit MkIII BD, god that would be a killer set. :yess:

Everyone should keep in mind that when HT says "die cast", that phrase is deceptive. The IM figures features SOME die cast parts, very probably certain sections of armor and nothing else. That being the case, I doubt it will effect articulation in the slightest, because the parts involved with articulation will be plastic as usual.
The downside that I foresee is a higher center of gravity than all-plastic figures, which may make tip-overs (and consequent breakages) more of a problem.

OMG did this to show what parts are diecast and plastic.

Yep, HT should be credited with implementing diecast is such a way that it has strengthened and improved the figure's articulation over its plastic counterparts. I know Mr Walker believes that the same articulation could be implemented in 100% plastic figures, but I just don't think so. I think plastic would break under the strain that I've seen the joints put through in the WM MK II videos. Thing is people that don't like diecast seem to be kind of religious about it. There's just no way they'll view it as positive until these figures prove themselves over a few years, I guess.

*does double-take* Lol, while I wouldn't have put it that way, glad to see a diecast skeptic open to the possibility that HT implemented it well. I was 100% sceptical, myself, until I saw what they'd done and how much better the articulation was. We'll see over time how they do, but at the moment I've feeling a lot better about diecast than I was previously.

Dang, that's not a bad price. Since there's no exclusive, I'll be waiting for a local distributor to order, though. What a fantastic figure.

Eh, yeah with situations like Mother's Basement, I don't blame people for being a bit incredulous given the huge pre-order window with these. Really with someone like Sideshow I would feel 100% confident leaving $40.00 with them for that time, though. Local distributors is another thing, entirely, though. Luckily the one I go through (Urban Samurai) does not require deposits. I agree in those cases it's best not to pay a deposit and just source it elsewhere (or direct to Sideshow, worst case).



Woah, $400 is a bit much, he is about the same size as IM, I was expecting it to be around the same price as the other IM diecasts.
Figure overall is slightly larger and a lot more complex, IMO. $400.00 seems about right to me. Was actually fearing it would be a lot more, so I'm good with the price.

I like it and will get it but no Exclusive and it's not even a Limited Edition. And it won't be available until April 2015. I guess Hot Toys wants to be able to potentially sell many by gauging the market on preorders and not be locked into making it a "limited." On the upside, more availability for all to get one and enjoy without it selling out too soon.

Yup I'm also priced out on hot toys in general unless a must have comes up like the DX-13, which even at $300 I felt uncomfortable throwing down that much money for a 1/6th figure.

Exactly. This thing is 13" tall and costs $400, but almost all PF figures are twice that and cost less or the same. Easy pass. I'm all out on iron man anything. Done. I'm not supporting the lunacy any longer. It just doesn't make sense to me.

Terminator and Robocop won then? ... This is the problem: when to limit ... Hard to hear our reason ...



Lacitesdesnuages has this one for Pre-Order. 334.9 Euros and 301.4 Euros for Members. I'm guessing 335/350 US Dollars On Sideshow later today.
... Another little froggy? :welcome1:



The price is going to be painful...but I have to get this. Been waiting a long time for it.
... And my favorite little Microcebus! Hehe ... Have you noticed that my signature had not changed at least? I honor it, huh. :lol
+1 (than 100% with your words!) :hi5:






Was excited till the Diecast part. Easy pass.


Looks pretty good though. did he have the fold out stability feet in the film?
Yes. The part when he stepped on War Machine and the feet clamps came down and sort of grabbed War Machine like a hand.

So, to get this straight- I'm not against die cast, plastic, cotton, or any material as long as the final piece is awesome, and this fits the bill just fine! I very much doubt that the articulation improvements on the WM just released are not possible with plastic. I'm no toy designer myself, but I really can't understand that reasoning.
Again, I have nothing against die cast, the the weight of a figure plays very little part in my purchase decisions. Also, I'm 32, I don't play with this things, I display them. Weight is really irrelevant.
What I care about, is where my money is going. Is die cast really all that much expensive than plastic? I have been researching and there's not a single site that confirms this. In fact, some actually state that is cheaper. Maybe shipping charges, as the weight of the item play a factor- that I can see as being a little extra $$- but come on- this is a 12" figure (an excellent one at that) that is priced only a tad cheaper than iron monger was. How and when did we come to the conclusion that die cast automatically makes a figure more expensive?

Once again, I don't mind die cast like some that seem to hate it with a passion around here. But I'd love to understand this price hike on a 12" figure.....that I might end up getting, or not. Who knows? This thing looks way too cool.

Please someone school me.

Some time back I posted a slightly tongue-in-cheek dig at Hot Toys marketing.. implying that die-cast would be used to keep prices going up and 'Power Pose' figures would fill the old price break.. with the benefit of hindsight, not 100% accurate.. since Hot Toys have brazenly raised the price of the standard plastic, articulated figures as well.
:lol

I think this is the real reason some people dislike diecast so much (since the dire predictions about paint issues, do not appear to have been proven in the quality toy car and robot market, over many years) they see diecast as convenient camouflage for price gouging.

I do not have any manufacturing costings for diecast figure production and particularly the diecast development prototype logistics.. so there may or may not be a significant difference with high-end plastic figures.. although the advances in 3D printing, make me suspect that plastic figure R&D might be getting cheaper.
I confess I am guilty as charged of feeling the weight of diecast, makes collectible figures feel more 'expensive'.. I know it's illogical, but it just does.. kinda like the feel of a 'heavy' car door closing.. yummy, but illogical.

This looks well made but $400+? He was only in one movie and in the armour for about 2 minutes :lol :lol

As if that has anything to do with a character's popularity. See a certain bounty hunter from Star Wars for reference.

The figure looks great but after seeing the $400 price tag it's a pretty easy pass for me. The only good thing about these higher prices is that I get to see where my priorities are with my collection. $400 for new Whiplash? No. $400 for Batman EX PF? Yes.

Awesome! Simply amazing looking figure. Perhaps releasing it now is better than it would've been several years ago to capitalize on the new Diecast that Hot Toys is adding on the Iron Man figures.

Going to pass though! I'm strictly staying with Iron Man armors and there's a lot of other stuff going to be coming out that has my wallets attention! :rock

I'm happy for those of you who have been waiting for this!

The price is painful... but I've been waiting for this one, enough to skip Igor. And it looks amazing. At least fifteen months puts it waaaay down the line to save up for.

if they pay $2430 in hong kong, we pay over $80 more here. :mad: Luckily BBTS doesn't charge a deposit fee. Plenty of time to change my mind later.

I'm sure the diecast will make the toy feel awesome, but I wish they would have skipped it to save $50-60 on the price of the figure. $400 is insane... I still preordered. :gah:

Nice figure but at $400, I'd rather throw my money at a statue.

Thing is it's a beautiful and unique design, and comics inspired enough for me that I don't care what role it played in the actual movie. Personally, I'd rather have Iron Monger and Iron Whiplash than 4 or 5 Iron Mans. Everyone's going to be different since few of us have the money, space or even inclination to get everything, but I don't see how $400.00 for this figure is outrageous compared to $250.00 for Silver Centurion or $480.00 for Iron Monger. Seems about just right when you look at it in context. It's bigger than average but not monstrous, plus diecast with 100% new moldings. Not like I'm happy to be separated from the money, but I don't see any gouging going on here at all.

I was so excited for this figure!
I was going to PO it and then the Pepper Potts figure they said is in the works.
Then the price got listed.
I HATE DIECAST!
This should have been a regular MMS figure and thats it!
I guess I'm just waiting for Pepper...unless they put her in an Iron suit and make it Diecast too!

Definitely sucks... I can imagine it being $275-$290 or so MAX had it not been die-cast. That extra $100 is hefty...

I think it would have been a lot more than that. This is more like Igor, its a more complex one use design that they can't repaint 3 times (looking at you MKVII) and sell again and again. Also there is nothing on here that they can recycle from armors they have already made, like hands, feet, etc. If it was plastic i would think it would have been $350-$375.

I agree with Invictus.
I do believe that the hate for diecast is misplaced. Sure it adds weight but thats it. I dnt hear any more cons.

Im really not torn by the price, could've easily been $400 but jeez. The price now, if someone really wanted it, its perfectly possible to grab one with budgeting

With how expensive all these 12" figures are, if you can't afford $400 and like the piece from now until April. 2015 then maybe you should start collecting sneakers LOL. Just kidding those things are expensive as ****.

Figure looks awesome, I'm just unsure if I will pre order it or not. If I decide on pre ordering Whiplash, its not going to be through my local shop considering they want $520 for it.
