The reworked opening calf and arm panels really emphasize how overly thin this figure is. I mean, just look at the opened leg air brakes, how the hell would a human leg fit inside the lower leg armor. This was acceptable on the previous Iron man figures, it's more noticeable and irksome this time. Also, look at how the forearm meets the inner elbow. It is different and looks weird to me.

I really wish they would have tweaked the proportions to be a bit more accurate. But I can understand that Ht would want to maximize profits using the existing molds.

It still is a great looking figure though. Lots of stuff included.

Seeing as you can have this version displayed in either un damaged or battle damaged set up, I feel Hot Toys have really been un-fair releasing the first version as well as this. Same with John Connor version 2 - we have to buy a whole new figure - another 130 - when they could just include the alternative clothes / accessories / battle damaged chest and head / scarred John Connor head with the first release and perhaps charge a little more.

At least Police Joker includes 2 sets of clothes - but then again this is their 3rd Joker

The new DX Batman is a joke as well considering the only real upgrades are the light up / moving eyes cowl / facial expressions and the sticky bomb gun
why dont they just sell new improved heads or accesories on their own - like an expansion pack.

I will pre-order from SS because it is a great looking figure. Whether I keep this version will depend on other Marvel or IM 2 announcements before release. The release date is either 4Q 2009 or 1Q 2010. I foresee this going into 2010 which depending how late in the 1Q it is release we may have IM 2 details.

I do not believe this one will be difficult to pick up later if needed.

Very nice product, but this is really going to burn Hot Toys in the long run, no pun intended. They really should release one version that's as good as possible, release new figures as usual, but also offer the new stuff as add-ons. Both parties happy!

Very impressive... really like what they've done with this. Nice to see a BD version that is more than just a cheap repaint.

But, I think I'll just stick with the original on this one. If the overall figure was a bit less weathered I'd probably switch camps, but I prefer the clean one.

Nah, after this I'm sure they will be in full IM2 mode... still would be cool to see an Iron Monger, but I'm guessing that ship has sailed as well.

MaulFan
09-14-2009, 10:08 AM
Indeed, the features on this one are much more impressive, but I'm due to get the origina Mark 3 tomorrow, I decided I wanted a Mark 3 and I too much prefer the clean, pristine look and the "clean" mode of this figure is still to worn for my taste. Something about the Mark 3 look to me begs to look pristine and sleak, Mark 1 and 2 looking beat up seems fitting. It works in the movies, but for a figure, I want damage free.

Now to look forward to the Mark 4 figure :)

I re-read the specs. I wish the TS sculpt was clean with a removable faceplate and the battle damaged version was the light up regular helmet.

The TS with a clean & removable faceplate could be transferred to the original Mark III while the battle damage light up version would be on the battle damaged suit. :confused:

eh well....

So, is it just my mind playing tricks, or does the head look better proportioned? :confused:

MaulFan
09-14-2009, 11:27 AM
I thought the head looked fine on the first release so I'm not one to judge, I really can't spot any differences in this one from the first other than the changed flap features or the added features.

Cap'n Cook
09-14-2009, 11:30 AM

The Battle damaged IRON MAN MARK III features:

l Deluxe Iron Man figure base

Yeh, this isn't a DX figure. :rolleyes:

How is he supported by this magic base too - magnets?

MaulFan
09-14-2009, 11:38 AM
Yeh, this isn't a DX figure. :rolleyes:

It's 90% a DX, and they admitted it was going to be and they just scrapped a few features in order to put it out sooner so it won't conflict with IM2.

If it were DX, I imagine that base would have some LED's built into it like the Batman ones, I can't imagine Batman has it only because of how the real world display was setup, I figure all DXs will have lights in the display to make them fancier. Also, PERS would have been added to the RDJ head.

i dont think they are worried about having the figures out by the IM2 movie. we are still getting figures from the first one (granted it took them a while to get everything together for these figures) so now that they had practice with these molds i would think it would be pretty quick to get the IM2 figures out unless its something really complicated with the characters

Yes, but they're also producing other things. It takes 4-6 months for a standard human figure to come out, let alone something as complex as Iron man, plus if they just do Mark 4 only as DX, which they should, then it'll be a bulky package.

And yes they're still putting out IM stuff a year later, but HT likes to have stuff out for film release, they did it with Dark Knight, with what they learned from the first Iron Man, they'll be working to do the same as Dark Knight with IM2 and have some things out or just about out timed with the release and cash in on folks being hyped about getting a Mark 4 or whatever at the same time they're going to see the movie.

I'm pretty sure you will, I believe that's why it got cut short from being a DX release to just a BD, so it'd be out before so that when IM2 comes, IM2 figures will get sales.

I don't see the need for the clean parts to be included at all. It's not going to look good 'half damaged' is it? What I mean is, why would you display the BD version in some sort of mix and match composite? It's not realistic nor screen accurate.

What upsets me most is having the crushed helmet as an exclusive, when it's intricate to the BD figure.

I agree with you about the crushed helmet, that's a pretty neccessary part for this figure, and shouldn't be exclusive. But why complain about extra accessories? If hot toys wants to give us more bang for our buck, then I say let them.

There are scuff marks on the "clean" version of the chest as well; it's just not all beat to hell. For people like me who would replace a Mark III with this version as opposed to displaying them side by side, the non-damaged chest and mask is a very welcome addition.

I'm a little miffed they took away the Golmera bullet holed chest plate and replaced it with a clean one. The rest of him is slightly weathered so the chest plate practically clean makes no sense....as does the fully clean light-up head.

I'd have to agree, watching closely, I noticed they cleaned up his armor between Golmera and the final battle, it looks brand new again, so really this figure is an opportunity to present him in both renditions of his worn look, and yet ultimately, the only one truly represented is the final battle and a half assed version of Golmera.

Metal-like painting with scratches finishing
I'd love to know if the whole figure has a more metallic finish; it sure looks like it from the pictures, but then the original Mark III has looked far more metallic in certain photos than mine does in person as well. Case in point. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/shaunwong/3240274932/)

i recently received 2 figures from sideshow in seperate shipments-neither were charged customs.they (ssc) charge tax/vat thats included when you receive your final shipping email confirmation! so youll get charged for the item,shipping and the tax! its not much from what i remember-the total cost of my EX.predator1 came to 140!! the tax payed keeps the customs at bay!

So you liked it enough to buy it and now you feel it wasn't worth it? Don't feel bad. The Mark 3 is the best, most iconic representation of Ironman. It has the best RDJ head sculpt as well. If you were only going to have one, or if I had to recommend one, the Mk 3 would be it.

Why are you feeling so down about it? Because the BD comes with a 'slightly' damaged chest plate, as well as a clean helmet, that you probably wouldn't display it with anyway. Or because it has the shoulder munitions pods, counter measure dispensers, and cool base? A couple of added extra's. No big deal in the scheme of things. You have plenty to be happy with with what you have.

If you had to buy a second Ironman, it wouldn't be this BD one. It's be the Mk1. Then again, the grass is always greener, and Hot Toys wants to keep it that way. Not much we can do about it.

Ya quite true, just be happy with your purchase. Hot Toys is like any company, out to make money so will introduce new additions. Just a matter of whether you are willing to wait for better versions and to risk the current version price go up subsequently.

Toy Square has him up for pre-order, but he's $185. Ouch! That's DX-level pricing, but without the PERS or a particularly good head sculpt. For that kind of price tag, I really do hope all of those little intricate parts are made of sterner stuff.

A $185 price tag is decent IMO when the orginal IM went for $160 thru SS.

I am impressed with both (Final battle) JC and (battle-damaged) IM TS sculpts vary from the standard sculpt. JC has the scar & blood while TS looks to have some facial expression. I hope the trend continues.

I will wait for SS to pre-odrer.

This looks good but I shan't get it. Also I agree with the guy earlier in the thread who was saying they're making him too small. Theres no way a 1/6th scale human could fit inside the suit as they are currently making it. For that matter I think the film made him too small aswell - surely the interior of the suit would have to be thickly lined with cushioning or else any impact would be just as fatal to him in the suit as out of it.

Metal-like painting with scratches finishing

I'd love to know if the whole figure has a more metallic finish; it sure looks like it from the pictures, but then the original Mark III has looked far more metallic in certain photos than mine does in person as well. Case in point. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/shaunwong/3240274932/)
Anyone care to chime in? I'd really love to know if "metal like painting" means the whole figure is more metallic looking than the original release. Probably not, since the original Mark III also lists "metal like painting" in the description.

Hard to tell until we see it in hand. With the original MKIII release, I was content with the finish on the figure from seeing the bevy of in-hand photos, but when I actually received mine I was a bit disappointed. Again, it's hard to tell until we get side-by-side comparisons of the two MKIII figures, which won't be for a while.

However, I will contend that by nature of the "battle damage" effects on this new figure it'll look more realistic and metallic than the previous MKIII figure. The BD MKIII will look better by default, unless HT manages to totally botch the paint job, which I seriously doubt.

The battle damage should help the illusion of a metal-like paint job, yes?

I believe you're correct; even if he's no more glossier than the original release, the scratches and dents should make it appear more metallic.

I like that this version has extra features, but I don't like that you can't make him look completely un-Damaged (shoulder guards). I have the the other Iron Man Mark III coming, if I'd know about this one first I may have waited and would have been torn. Between the two choices though I think I made the right one.

First of all, Hot Toys said it was going to be a DX but they opted to axe the PERS head and get the thing out quicker as a standard figure (to avoid stepping on the toes of the Iron Man II releases). Secondly, what would it matter if it were labeled DX? You wouldn't buy it if it fell into the DX category but since it did not your hand is forced to purchase it? :confused:

If HT scrapped the BD Mk III being a DX due to lack of time as they want to focus on IM2 figs, do you really think they will have another IM one in the piepline?

Perhaps this was part of the Dlx IM that was scraped and transformed into battle damaged IM? Similar to Dlx Joker you could create two individual figures. "Test" Tony and Battle Damaged Ironman.

It is Mark 2 trial phase, and he does wear gloves.

The gear in those photos is based on his successful hover test before he has Jarvis suit him up for his test flight, he has gloves on for that.

If it was, that'd be an awfully suped up set, 2 full figures, both bodies with electronics, probably would have been like $230 for the whole thing.

Perhaps. Unless one complete figure (battle damage IM) which included a new Downey sculpt, hands and the gear for the second suit. Consumers purchase one of the many TT and kitbash and bada bing a second figure. Quite similar to the Dlx Joker.

Who knows. Wait and see if anything transpires.

MaulFan

I'd have thought that, but not sure how you could achieve the light up functions without having a TT custom built to do that, HT would have to supply it.

The hands don't look like they light up. Perhaps the second suit didn't light up or only certain parts of the suit lit up? Maybe that feature caused the problem (delay) which made it go from a Dlx to battle-damaged. Who knows we are talking HT. :D

MaulFan
09-22-2009, 11:12 AM
Why don't you think the hands like up? They have the stablizers, to be correct, they should light up like on the full IM figures.

Whatever the case, I do wish HT would do a Tony Stark figure with light up reactor, it's a really cool look.

That's what I thought as well, but for that to be the case the set would either have to include two bodies or a removable Iron Man suit with a truetype body inside. If the DX Joker figure ends up including two bodies (there's speculation that it may since it's rumored to come in a double box), then I guess we'll know that they intended to include a truetype body with the scrapped DX Iron Man as well.

I have a program that you can snapshot any program windown, even material that's coded to not just use copy paste function. If you're on MAC too, it's call Snap N Drag, great little screen cap program.

When I got the first Iron Man Mark III from Sideshow, it took them three goddamn months after it was released in Hong Kong before they got it to me. That, and the final shipping charge ended up only being $6 less than what it would have cost if I'd ordered from Toys2. I was waiting to see what Sideshow's price was going to be for the battle-damaged version, hoping it would be lower than other places, but they're actually $5 higher than Toys2.

it will be about $50 by the time you recieve your SS email invoice to say that they will be charging your credit card!

not sure how long hes been up for order but i assume we are in there quite quick which means we will get one of the first batch that arrives in the E.U warehouse!?

That does sound sucky but quite good for me in the long run if something similar even if it's over 1 month or two late so be it.

I could have got this for $175 but thats just the regular version and no doubt if I went that route I'd have to go fishing on eBay to fork out another $30 or so for the head. Like I did for the Iron Man Mark 2 exclusive bust.

PPC, and just haven't gotten around to it, now it's too late anyway, snow leopard's out, for what little upgrades I'd get, probably just wait to get a new computer and get the upgrade then, I'll probably be due for a new one by the end of 2010, this one will be 5 years old this winter, and the growing exclusivity of Intel stuff is starting to leave me behind.

True.

Its like the mark 2 ex bust. Nice to have, but I could live without it.

Just pick those up if I find it necessary later on ebay. Bet there would be plentiful.
