I want that holographic Mk IV.

More realistically, I want that workshop accessories set - how much are they asking for them?

Thanks for the video! I didn't know they were located on the 20th floor (or am I seeing it right?) I always thought they just have a shop front somewhere in Kowloon or Mongkok on the ground floor.

Pity I didn't get to see it when I was in Hong Kong 2 years back since it was a pretty rushed trip.

Seriously? How much are SB asking for it?

I'm based in the UK, so anything from Sideshow is going to be costly to ship and incur vast handling fees :monkey2

What I'd like to know who gets those when they come down? do they go back to Hot Toys or do the very lucky members of staff get them at cost, talk about a dream job :)

I'd assume they keep them in an archive.

Ha! I have no longer a reason to go to Hong Kong now!...lol great video, loved that holographic Spidey display, must cost a lot of money for a display like that...lol you mentioned the dynamic flight stands, do they have just generic flight stands? Not character specific?..how much are those if you don't mind the question...been wanting to buy a couple, but SSC sold out and I'm not paying 90$ on Amazon for 1

Awesome video Anthony thanks! So how much stock to they have figure wise? Is it pretty much what Sideshow carries with some of the newer ones like Falcon and Igor? My wife went to Toy Hunters a few years ago and said they barely had any stock in that shop.

Thank you for addressing my previous question about Drax in the video. Awesome to see what the place looks like.

Thanks for the virtual tour! Sideshow needs to open up a store here in the US like this with displays etc.

Thanks for the tour--interesting! I wasn't aware of the T-1000 fading problems since I set up mine in the full cop uniform with helmet and shades and can't tell. I'm surprised they went with non-archival lighting and not museum style lighting to protect the paint jobs and whatnot, but maybe they consider it a reasonable trade off to show more details.

Interesting that the SSC stuff still carries the "import" pricing since IIRC pretty much all the figures are made in China. The clone stuff is a partnership with HT even...

Good grief, this reminds me both of how much I've got and how much I'm missing. Hopefully HT will produce some version of the holographic Iron Man for general release.

I like this one better. But i'd buy both if they made them for mass production... from what I read they were both one-off customs.

Blue/green is my favourite. Looks exactly like the holographic tablet display he had in the first film.

after shipping, sourcing and packaging, USD $90 is about right.

As I stated in the video, it is not a shop, it is a showroom. SECRET BASE DO NOT HAVE ANY STOCK. It is a place to pick up and pre-order figures.

That is why collectors buy from re-sellers.

I would actually pick up that green holographic Iron Man if they released it, very cool.
