Wow lol, I had $300 bucks and I was pretty close to ordering the Mark 42. But this seems too good to be true. The movie has yet to come out, and Hot toys still has a bunch of figures lingering on the shelves. Iron patriot is still getting heavily discounted.

If this figure was nothing else but a repaint of the mark 42, to tell you the truth I would still buy it. That is coming from a person who didn't buy the mark 42, I dunno about those who have.

I was pretty close too... The reasons I haven't yet is because I don't really like the color scheme and because i'm waiting for the "Battle Damaged" version that SSC has had a teaser of in their Coming Soon list. I would rather have Mark 43 because it's what I thought 42 should have looked like.

Yea they had to wait for the trailer with the suit in it. Which will be released with the hobbit battle of the five armies. Once it is shown publicly (the suit) in the trailer then hot toys can put the suit up for PO. They are rushing trying to get the real proto done but have a 42 repaint ready in case it's the photos not done.

I'm loving everything about AoU that I've seen, thus far, from a design perspective. I know The Dark World had its detractors, but I liked it, and I think they perfected movie Thor's design in that film, so, I'm glad that they've kept that one as is. I loved the Stealth suit in The Winter Soldier, but it just looks perfect with those classic colors, and I feel the same way about the MK XLIII. Now, if the movie can live up to those designs, then I'll be truly impressed.:lol

Also, are there any translations of the full articles up yet?

I think the Mark 42 gold color scheme works better with this suit's design. I really do like the look of 43...but almost in spite of myself, I like the 42 better than a lot of the dominant Red with Gold armors. With the design of the M42, the Gold leads my eye easily throughout the whole suit, giving is sleeker look (rather then the Red on the 43). If this turns out to be the same exact mold, it would be interesting to mix and match parts just for the fun of it.

I agree. It's a great looking movie thus far. There are a couple costumes not shown publicly yet that I really like. And the movie looks great from what I've seen thus far. Even the dailies looked great. And that's before and post production or editing or sound stuff. Just some great acting, design, and the sets looks fantastic.

I don't think I'm gonna get this. I'll wait to see what Civil War and Infinity War holds for Iron Man. Bring on Cap, Thor, Ultron, and Vision! Unless the Civil War versions for those figures save Ultron look better than their AOU counterparts. I just want a Dark World Thor with silver discs instead of gold.

Mock up, you can tell since the red on the chest is photoshopped badly and is going outside the lines.

guy66657

Maybe it's that we all got so used to the XLII color scheme that we think the reversed colors is a bit jarring. XD

The figure is indeed Diecast. Cost about the same as the Mark 42. It's a repaint and the exclusive will have a light up BD helmet.

You know, at first when I saw Iron Man 3 I really didn't care for it but I've grown to really like the Mark XLII a lot. The figure is great looking. I think I'll grow to like the Mark XLIII too though.

12-14-2014, 05:27 PM
The Mark XLII is a great looking suit. When we first got glimpses of it for the IM3 way back before the movie people were turned off by all of the gold. I figure the same will happen with the XLIII and that once AOU is released and we have had time to see it on screen it will look more "acceptable".

It will be awesome to see the XLII and XLIII side by side with the inversion of the colors. Can't wait!

I'm glad I passed on the Mark 42 now. That thing was a piece of junk in the movies, anyway. Wow, this will be the first time HT has a figure for pre-order (and possibly release) before the movie even comes out.

I hope we get a full MkI Ultron figure, that would be my instant favourite

kevb0977
12-14-2014, 05:46 PM
So..., is there nothing different other than a bit of paint between the mark 42 & 43 OR is the figure displayed just a repaint for now whilst they make the necessary changes to the new suit?

XLIII is the exact same suit. With reversed paint.

It does look like the mark 43 is sharper & more defined in areas..., thanks for sharing the picture. :)

Looks the exact same to me. The Mark 42 in that picture is the prototype, not the final version.

A Chinese-speaking member of our local forum actually said that the Mark 43 is a straight repaint of the Mark 42 (as described in the magazine and the reason why fans need not wait that long for the figure), so it's the 42 that you're seeing in reversed paint scheme.

Like others have been speculating, I think it's too soon to see a regular Iron Man release from Avengers 2. This is most likely just a straight up repaint of the MK42 with the same head sculpt and a new detailed base to be released as a movie promo. And if it is, it probably won't come with all 42's interchangeable parts.

Best news of the day

I agree. It's a great looking movie thus far. There are a couple costumes not shown publicly yet that I really like. And the movie looks great from what I've seen thus far. Even the dailies looked great. And that's before and post production or editing or sound stuff. Just some great acting, design, and the sets looks fantastic.

Its is a straight repaint and because of that it will be released in under a year with no battle damage peices and no battle damage tony stark head sculpt. (FYI, I read chinese. So only quoting)

You know what the big issue with thia piece to alot of collectors. The issue will be if this suit is a combo with the hulkbuster. And if this is the only version with the stand. May I be the first to start cursing this strategy of money making.

I am more inclined to believe that the Mark 43 inside the Hulkbuster would be like Obadiah Stane inside HT's Iron Monger.

Good call on that. It could be like a 1/6 scale bust that slides into the middle, and display when it is not within the suit. Another question is will the HB suit shut with the Mark XLIII in there. Can't wait to find out this week hopefully!:yess:

Times like these I wish I remembered how to read Chinese.

Has HT ever released a movie promo figure, followed by a different/regular version of it? I know the Mark 6/7 movie promos were different releases after the original releases, but have they ever gone in the opposite direction?

I'm not feeling the red color scheme, but I may warm up to it once I see it in action rather than in heavily Photoshopped promo images. That said, the coolest part of this really is the Ultron half-figure on the base.

1. This will be a Mark XLII repaint, along with a clean, repainted Tony head.

2. We may or may not get a BD Mark XLIII with new BD pieces and yet another BD Tony head. But if AoU does at the box office what we think it'll do, it's inevitable.

3. If it even opens up, Hulkbuster will likely be similar to Monger in construction. That means no figure within a figure. It doesn't matter, though, it'll still be crazy expensive.

Probably why they are giving us the cool base then, to try & get those that don't like straight repaints to buy it..., it is a very cool base after all. :) I'm more interested in the suits myself but I'll not pass up on the version being offered, the base is just a bonus for me. :)

The mark 43 is a straight repaint because that's how it's done in the movie, not a design choice by hot toys.

And since it is basically the same body as a 42 why anyone would expect it to be a different material then the 42 is beyond me. Did you think Midas would get a new sculpt and tooling even though it's just a different color way of the Mk vii?

As for hulkbuster...no way will it have a removable armor feature. Even if it could be done where it didn't cause loads of logistical issues, it would cost 2k. Or more. Just not going to happen. If they didn't do an armor where a person could come out, (mk1 or iron monger) or even a suit that could be taken off (batman and Bruce Wayne) no reason to expect them to engineer a much larger, more complex, more expensive HB to do those things.

Fyi-anyone want to know why it's just a repaint in the film? It's a bit of a spoiler but nothing huge....I don't want to say anything if people would rather wait

Are you even (legally) allowed to say why? I'm certainly curious, but at the same time, I've read too many spoilery rumors and would rather be surprised by things when I do see the movie. I just hope it isn't something like Dummy switched the colors when rebuilding the Mark 42. :)

It has a lot more wear and tear than the usual non battle damaged Iron Man release. Nicks, scratches, dirt/oil spots, smears etc. Even the faceplate is roughed up. I just with they would've carried over the interchangeable battle damaged parts. This well end up costing more than the 42 and we're getting less. Sure the base is nice, but I'd rather have more figure parts for customization. All in all, I'll most likely get it. I've sold all my previous Iron Man figures and this one looks to be the best so far.

They're probably going to weather all their ironman figures since too many **** retentive collectors were trying to exchange any suit that had any minor paint chip.

As for legally aloud to say....I am not working on that film. Unfortunately. But I've been on a few sets and have an in with a few people. So I've heard and seen some stuff. Stuff I know that has been told to journalist and bloggers so it's not something top secret, though it hasn't leaked that I've seen. It's not a huge plot point and it gets explained very quick. I would never spoil a big plot twist or say anything that could hurt the movie or anything. Bad business that. And with the suit actually being shown in sure this info come out soon anyway.

Also, no offense to this forum, but it's not mass market. And people here are not casual fans. Most of us are hardcore nerds/geeks (though that's kinda cool these days). So no harm. Plus, half the folks won't believe me anyway. So no damage. Lol

The manufacturers receive approved reference material from the licensee that they use to create prototypes. They don't make these things from looking at movie trailers. It could easily be a situation of the reference material provided was early and the suit was modified after it was sent.

This is the reason none of the toy manufacturers with the Iron Man 2 license produced a Whiplash MK2 at the time of the movie's release. Marvel Studios didn't provide reference material due to the last minute changes to the end of the movie and inclusion of the new armor.

I think the Mark 42 gold color scheme works better with this suit's design. I really do like the look of 43...but almost in spite of myself, I like the 42 better than a lot of the dominant Red with Gold armors. With the design of the M42, the Gold leads my eye easily throughout the whole suit, giving is sleeker look (rather then the Red on the 43). If this turns out to be the same exact mold, it would be interesting to mix and match parts just for the fun of it.

could not agree more! I feel the dominant red looks forced in this design. I would have loved to see a design similar to the extremis armor instead

Yep. As a fan, but not a HT Iron Man completest, I'd rather have a different armor (than the 43) for a predominant Red figure. I'll wait for the re-issue/diecast of the Mark VI or VII...or see what's coming up, that we haven't seen yet.
I would like to pick up the battle damaged Helmet from the Mark 43 set to make my custom, fully battle damaged Mark 42.

The waist flaps could have been easily cut and glued to represent what HT are thinking in terms of articulation. I'm just saying we might see some subtle changes on the final.
The production pics of the 42 (that are still up on SSC) are different than what we have in hand. IMO the in hand pics of the Mark 42 are better than ANY of the production pics.

Don't think he needs it, just curious as it is certainly an interesting thought but either way I doubt we'll get another suit..., maybe at best there will be another of the accessory packs & an Ultron head but if it's just a red eye thing then it's already been covered in the exclusive release of this suit, has it not? :/

I liked that story line. It would be cool, but he'd need to seriously overhaul the suit to make it suitable for combat. Will he have time to do so in the movie? Who knows? Imagine if that actually happens and HT releases a Mark I 3.0?

So soon but will be bought already. Will look good as a reverse to my 42. Building my diecast collection pretty sweet. Wondering since they put these figures out so soon have they seen the movie already? I would imagine so.

I'm interested but it might be too expensive for me. Wonder how much over the mk42 it will be?

Lets see if we can spot the inaccuracy :lol
152111

first thing that jumps out is the shoulders :ohbfrank: and that screenshot is from the trailer. So Hot Toys must have said "oh well, I guess the 43 is basically the 42 with reversed colors", instead of actually researching the armor(like watching the trailer once) and realizing its not exactly the same


Its just an early prototype, they'll fix it



could not agree more! I feel the dominant red looks forced in this design. I would have loved to see a design similar to the extremis armor instead

:exactly: It looks a bit weird, but I still like it.


I'm not sure about this figure thought... I'll buy it. But I was expecting to get a figure of Tony to come with the destroyed Ultron :dunno

I'm actually more interested in getting something like this:

I could go for Civvie Stark from that scene, but also Thor

I should be more happy to see first figure from AOU, but it's more than 5 months from the movie release and as far as lazy cash-ins go this is up there. I would've liked if they added a helmet-less Tony Stark HS to pose like in the Empire magazine cover, or other weaponry. We haven't even seen what this suit can do in the movie, why in such hurry Hot Toys? Hopefully this means Tony will get into another suit at the end of the movie which will get a proper attention because this is pretty lackluster effort for the main character of the biggest movie of next year

The more accessories this has, the more $$$$ it's going to be. It's diecast, has a wicked base, and is a new armor. If we also get battle damaged pieces, then the price will be way too high.

This looks incredible even though it's just a repaint. Even better than 42 IMO.

It's not inaccurate. The Mark 42 in that section of the trailer is an actual prop suit. They're usually used in shots like that for either the trailer alone or to get an idea of the lighting for those doing the CGI. Because of that the prop isn't 100% accurate in terms of the paint app or the little details that will be on it in the end. You can see here that the shoulders are indeed correct on the figure.

The Mk43 isn't my cup of tea but I do think it's great that HT can start offering these several months before the movie's release. If I had to choose between the 42 and the 43, I'd definitely pick the 43.

Can't wait to see AoU Thor up next, that one should be a re-paint as well, hopefully with a cool base like what they threw in with the Mk43.

guy66657
12-15-2014, 10:32 AM
I just wanna see Thor, Vision, Cap, Clint, Ultron, Wanda, and Vision the most! Earlier reveals and pre orders the better! We all knew that this would essentially be a repainting anyways. XD though I do admit the detachable Ultron is really ****ing cool.

I think what's great about these figures not coming out for another year or so though is so that once set pics of future films come out, you can just decide to skip these figures for those newer ones coming out. Ala people passing on Avengers Thor since set pics of TDW Thor came out. And from what I see, many people were happy with that decision. I'm waiting for Civil War pictures so see what we have in store.

I'm definitely going to be getting Ultron since this is probably the only film we're going to see him in ever, or for a very long time at least. I'm sure Thanos is going to look fantastic but I'm going to skip him because we know that he's gonna get he Infinity Gauntlet in a few years . Unless this version comes with his throne or something.

Is that how this thing works?..is really about the shiny new toy in the shelf with some of you guys lol

Personally the mk42 is pretty awesome for one, no need to regret it, secondly this ain't hitting shelves for about 18 months from now...I think by then you would have made room for an upgrade...why would people dump the 42 and wait almost two years for the replacement?

12-15-2014, 11:08 AM
That suit won't be bundled with Hulkbuster. HB's going to be expensive enough, as it is. Mark XLIII w/that suit will be a head and shoulders sculpt only. Just like Stane/Iron Monger.

I doubt they would bundle the 43 and Hulkbuster, the price for both will be close to or over $1000.00. I agree with Navy1991 it will probably been like the Iron Monger.
