A lot of the recent hasbro figs have actually been pretty dang nice. The new Iron Man figures included. Even some of the wacky variants are pretty cool and at least with Iron Man make some kind of sense.

Buttmunch
03-12-2010, 06:28 PM
Yeah I got to admit I got those new Iron Man hasbro figurs too. They are a nice little hold over until we get the HT ones. The Marks 1-6 look great together and Warmachine is just an awesome toy all around.

dedguy
03-12-2010, 06:30 PM
I'd say the mark V, at least the one I've seen it probably the shakiest of the regular armor figures.

The comic figures are pretty great too. The Iron Man (http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/ProductsByBrand.htm?BR=820&ST=SO&ID=26524&PG=1) and War Machine (http://www.hasbrotoyshop.com/ProductsByBrand.htm?BR=820&ST=SO&ID=26528&PG=1) in particular.

Detolfs and some used retail display parts so I can make a brand new all acrylic floating shelf just for my TDK figures and vehicles :D Detolfs are for IM/IM2 and TS/T2. Reorganizing/wiring the entire livingroom and that shelf will hopefully keep me busy till the end of the month :P also bought 16ft of LED lights

The "frail" look is exactly what I like about the suitcase armor. The slender look is a nice contrast to the many other bulky suits.

dedguy
03-12-2010, 08:36 PM
As do I. I really dig the splint armor skeletal look. It looks exactly like what it is. A suit of Iron Man armor that can compress into a suitcase. Very conceptual purpose built design.

Looking at the teaser again, the missile launchers are built into the armor, sorta like the BD Mark III. Turn them 90 degrees inward and they go down into his shoulder's.

I have just edited the post, as I have watched the trailer again, and this shot shows that the chin does still have two piece look to it

If you look at the chin, it looks different to ones above, as the lighting shows more detail.
Hot Toys still need to make theirs a bit more accurate though

I'm kind of hoping that SSC will give us IM2 LSBs. It'd be a nice alternative to the 1:1s which haven't had the greatest track record. I'd love a War Machine 1:2 LSB....I also wonder if SSC will try and ride the excitement and offer comic based incarnations...

I think he's just bent forward in that above pic, which could cause the torso to look long because the lower torso/abdominal section appears short.

Edit: on second thought, maybe not. The way HT did the torso is confusing me.

Paying PO right now is kinda dumb, since these wont get released for at least another 3 months. By then its too late for any claims with paypal etc.

Only reason I'm going to PO this is cause my local dealer doesnt need any deposits when PO.

dedguy

I don't paypal pre-order. By giving someone money so early you're essentially giving them more money. Granted I'm sure none of these people are investing the money, but still.

that's why I was asking people how reputuble he is. Its says within 30 days on the auction. That's the only reason I'm even considering it. Anything longer, there's no point

creecher
03-14-2010, 08:23 PM
All the HK etailers say that. So they get past ebay regulations. They can argue the item was due within 30 days, but due to Hot Toys professionalism in quality, the associated delay pushed back the date.

dedguy
03-14-2010, 08:25 PM
Its not like you won't be able to preorder it from everywhere. I don't see why anyone would take any sort of risk like that. ooh, you might get it a little bit earlier. Learn to wait, you'll live longer.

creecher
03-14-2010, 08:34 PM
It depends on the item you might want and where you live. Not everyone has the luxury of having Sideshow to order from, or one of their affiliates. If I waited or ordered from someone local the price is almost double. The prices are supposed to be cheaper from HK etailers because you pre-order. After the item is in stock, the HK prices can rise.

Buttmunch
03-14-2010, 08:41 PM
Plus there is always the possibility of a Sideshow/Toy Hunters exclusive. So its always better to wait and see what Sideshow puts up. They aren't going to sell out before then anyway. There are plenty of these to go around. Its not like their earlier releases.

Verbal21
03-14-2010, 08:41 PM

dedguy
03-14-2010, 08:43 PM
If you're in the US I do not understand preordering now at all. It's a waste of money. It's your money though so do what you will. That's just how I feel and me expressing my confusion.

this is the first time i've been so competely sold on a figure even before seeing proper pics of it. war machine as a design (both comic and film) is simply too bada$$.

my only (inconsequential) doubt is over the rhodes headsculpt but since i'll only display him with helmet on, it's a small issue.

Looks pretty good to me. I can see Cheadle in there just fine, altough some tweating couldn't hurt .

Buttmunch
03-14-2010, 10:35 PM
Looks great! But I got to admit, I don't see Cheadle either (perhaps because the skintone is too light. Cheadle is pretty dark). Its not a deal breaker though since I've never displayed any of the Iron Mans unmasked. But still when they make a big point about the likeness it should be there.

Spanbauer
03-14-2010, 10:40 PM
Wow! There's some insanely impressive engineering going on there (the articulated fingers, the overlapping panels in the waste), and it's nice to see Hot Toys finally make a non-clothed figure that's not too skinny for the first time in their history; however, they need to work on their Cheadle headsculpt, and something about the finish on the figure leaves him looking like an inexpensive 6" figure. The textures in the metal might be too subtle.

robbiethepainter
03-14-2010, 10:43 PM
I think Kojun can do better. I know they are in a rush to get these out so Im sure the face will get some more work done. They mention Cheadle in the listing so there wont be any rights problems. Does look like a guy in a suit this time. The neck seems a little thin though.

Buttmunch
03-14-2010, 10:51 PM
And again, I think the skintone on the figure is just too light. I think that is throwing the likeness off quite a bit.

I have to agree that it's mainly the skincolor that is off. Let's hope they are not sacrificing acuracy just to be PC

And again, I think the skintone on the figure is just too light. I think that is throwing the likeness off quite a bit.

I think that may be it, because the features look really close to me. Eyes, nose, lips... might just be the skin tone.

robbiethepainter
03-14-2010, 10:54 PM
For me its the mouth and the eyes. Maybe if the mouth was painted differently. To be honest, like the Downey, I don't really care to much because the face wont see the light of day for me.

03-15-2010, 02:17 AM
I'd say that's a given.
i meant they jumped too fast with the initial mark III, hence all the added weaponry details on the latter produced mark III BD. if ht jumped too fast on WM(only relying on concept arts, not the finished film), we could have another version of WM down the line with added details. that's what worries me.

no doubt about that. but it's not the details of the "costume" that worries me at this point(it's amazing as is!), it's what ELSE can the costume do. and for that i think ht needs to have seen the finished film, lest there's a scene with WM shooting all kind of bazookas out of his... i dunno, armpits or something and the studio forgot to mention it to ht.

and months later after the film is out... BAM! another ht WM that can shoot missiles out of his armpits. just dont like surprises is all.

Problem with the figure is Don Cheadle's face is way too light. Other than that its a almost perfect figure. 9 out of 10. The articulated fingers is great but have me worry because we all know how FRAGILE Hot Toys figures are. I'm not going to play with the aritculated fingers.

"When everyone is highly anticipating the Iron Man 2 movie, following our teaser announcement, we just can't wait to let you be the first to preview our long-prepared Iron Man 2 collectibles before movie launches! Among the whole series, taking the lead is the popular character War Machine collectible figurine!"

I was thinking the same, but they seem to make a point adding that to the newsletter, "long prepared", as if they are trying to assure us that they have done their homework with the designs of each figure for this line. We'll see as the next ones come up for order. I am very happy how this figure has came out so far. But what is worrying a bit more is, since it seems the got the scale and proportions correct with this one, will the future Marks be up to scale too? If so, then it is gonna look weird standing next to the IM1 figs.

Marvel-ous
03-15-2010, 06:25 AM
Don't worry, they have access to the source material.

And you have to realize that WM is a bit bulkier than any Mark in the movies.

True, but just want to see if HT will keep the Mark 4, 5 and 6 in scale with the first 3 Marks, or scale it to correct proportions and height, like they seem to do with WM. Any ways, WM kicks a$$ and hope they have this ready by May and no earlier.... got to pick up their T2 line in April first :)

I think this is hands down one of their best efforts in terms of proportions and accuracy, but they really need to add some texture to him; the cleanliness makes him look plastic by comparison. Not even his faceplate should be clean.

However, with that scene in IM2 when Stark and Rhodes are being surrounded and we see both their faces, it changes a few things. Especially since this seems to be a pivotal scene of the movie. I can see a great dio based on that.

This is one serious looking figure! I actually dont have too much issue with the headsculpt as is but each to their own, I dont imagine anyone would display him without the face plate closed anyways.

Its amazing how these figs keep getting more and more complex engineering wise, its a joy to look at them!

I don't think the Cheadle sculpt is a dealbreaker for anyone but it may not be the last. Recent stills show Tony face to face with the Mark 2 and some are speculating that its Rhodey in there for "training" or something along those lines. If they show Rhodey at all actually wearing that suit I could see them redoing the Mark 2 with these same newer features like movable fingers and articulated waist with Rhodey's face in there...

That's a good bet... we could get tons of figs from this film.

A better Mark 4, a better Mark 2 (with Rhodey in there), Mark 5 (possibly with racecar Tony), Mark 6, Black Widow, War Machine, Whiplash, Drones, Whiplash final armor, we could even get a new Tony, Rhodey, Nick Fury, Hammer, Pepper Potts & Natasha as Tony's assistant.

I think it might be more likely that the SSC exclusive comes with a mark II head with the Rhode's sculpt.

edit: A better mark IV? Better than what?

The Mark 4 is like their The Dark Knight figure with original costume. Its different but close enough that it'll suffice. I have feeling at minimum we'll get all three of Tony's marks on top of the War Machine.

Sculpt was good, the execution was piss poor. The seam on the side of the head, Final proportions without the hat on, the hair....overall it was obvious that HT wanted to be done with The Spirit. This is their chance at redemption.

Usually SSC is the last place to PO HT stuff...it'd be a change of form.

The folks on the boards are going the eBay route which is the quickest way to get stuff PO'd but then again some of the most problems accompanying them as well. I've been monitoring Toys2 all day waiting for them to throw it up there but it might not hit until later in the afternoon if not tomorrow.

did some emulatory processing to the promo pic of the figure to show what i mean with the poster pic. It clearly has some sort of texture on it as well as having the contrast and black levels pumped way up.

No, don't put it on the facebook page. Dedguy only darkened the colors (and not selectively) to emphasize the texture and weathering on the armor, not to alter the colors to represent the CGI model to the right. Take a look at the silver areas of the tweaked image, they're too dark. Don't post that on the HT facebook. Geez.

The lighting and colors in the CG rendered promo shot might not be fully representative of the actual WM suit in the movie.

I'm willing to bet it's the lighting in HT's official pics that could be causing the color of the armor to look a lighter shade, because in the other shots of the figure so far (Tommy Richardson's sneak peeks (http://hk.myblog.yahoo.com/tommgarden) and HT's preview image on first page), the color looks darker.

I missed this the first time reading through. That's exactly what I was trying to show. The HT photos are in a lightbox and are brightly and evenly lit. Additionally the promo pic is heavily altered almost to the point of looking more like a painting than anything. Likely this was done to help it blend better with the "2" and the background. It's not as obvious on War Machine since it's dark and not terribly reflective but compare the similar promo pic of the mkVI and compare it to stills from the HD trailer and you might see what I was getting at.

That doesn't matter. What matters is the end result, and when the launchers are displayed, they look awesome. So what if they don't pop-up? Unfortunately HT can't cram everything in there. In the movies it's easier! :D
