I got on the WL for this a while back and it converted today ( The REG edition), forgot i was even on it.

Not sure i want it anymore since all the IM2 stuff is coming...should i keep it or cancel, i have to cancel by tomorrow.

Anyone who owns this wanna weigh in and give me their opinions on if it's worth having???

Thanks

My waitlist converted last week for the Ex.
I only went on the waitlist 2 days before so I wouldn't go for the regular as you'd probably convert on an Ex.

not really interested in the exclusive cause i don't like the RDJ portrait.

not sure i even want this anymore, there doesnt seem to be a lot of photos or good reviews about this piece either.

but then again the Search on this site SUX!!!

I think its one of Sideshows pretend waitlists. I've being thinking about getting it since it was first announced and thought what the hell.

Faststreets posted an AWESOME set of pics showing a Sean Ho repaint of the IM Mark I maquette over in the IM III thread. With a great repaint, this looks just like RDJ IMO!


I ran a search, but couldn't find a Mark I Photo Thread. I spend most of my time on Indy stuff, but Sean Ho, my painter in Hong Kong, re-painted a Tony Stark/Iron Man Mark I PF and I thought that it is really good, so I thought that I should put some pics up:

That repaint is fantastic which shows what Sideshow could do if they tried. Mine turned up this morning and I think its great.

Holy that is one fantastic paint job on the face!

I have the Exclusive version and like it. Is it as detailed as the HT one? No it is not.

But then again, I do not generally collect Marvel in 1/6. So, if my IM are 1/4 scale, then this fits in perfectly, and on display with the other 1/4 scale IM, shows a great history of the suit.

yep great repaint, but if we would've got a better likeness from ssc then he'd of sported googles eyes.

OK now i'll stop being a negative thread basher.:banana:banana:banana

I decided to pull the trigger on the EX, so now I'll have one for home and one for the office. I'll probably repaint the eyes on the RDJ head. More photos to come!

I think this is such and underated piece I swapped another statue for this and think is great such a heavy statue and the detail is excellent. It is defenitley a keeper and once I get the new maquette I'll display it together with my stealth comiquette. If only I could afford the original one.:(

If you want size go with sideshow. If you want detail and the ability to pose go for HT. HT's are hard to find now.

They are both 20 kinds of awesome. I ended up buying two maquettes (Ex. and Reg,) and have one on display in my office. It never fails to impress.

I don't have this but I would assume that it comes of for the exclusive version because of the interchangeable head. The regular edition would just have the head permanently attached.
