Wow that was quick Wookster
Ok the abdomen looks too Skinny, the neck is too long and the head is too big. That sounds like I hate it, but even with these things I have pointed out I still like it. Even so, I will still hold out for a MK VI

The head is like a light bulb. it's too bulbous at the top.

Looking at it again though, it might be the long neck is giving that impression

Looks like they already fixed an inaccuracy shown in the teaser pic from past week.In these pics The golden ellipse/parabola shaped lines on his abdomen are shaped correctly and the way they meet those black rectangle shapes in the center is better as well:

http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r262/retskoow/album%202/IM2_MarkIV_PR12.jpg

Only thing that confuses me is why in some pics the golden lines look accurate but in some (the flight poses) they're still inaccurate.

It would be nice if they could use that stand for War Machine too, but it based on Stark's Hall of Armour.
I guess the MK VI will have the same type of stand, but not War Machine

much improved over mark III. the exposed hip joints on mark III has always been bothersome to me(makes it look toyish), but here the transition from thighs to hips is smooth. and love love the color.

problem is... like the mark III, it still looks skinny to me. i thought they learned their lesson after war machine.

Well it's clear to see there is a foggy grainy look to the picture, much like the War Machine Sneak Peek, but I did not notice the golden lines until you mentioned it. So now I know what you mean by difference in the paint job

notice the paint chips around the edges to give the impression of battle worn? i thought that's a nice detail.

proportion wise though, would much prefer him looking less like ninja from metal gear, and more like a medieval knight with bulky armor.

but the mk 6 will have one, and with a bit of luck they will be the same color so i will get one, just have to wait

also i want to add, that you could probably change the chest pieces between the 4 and 6, this is gunna be awesome because i like the 4 more than the 6, but i like the triangle chest piece too! this is the best day ever!! :D

they would have got some behinds the scenes info, which is why sometimes their innacurate, because the movie makers give them stuff in advance and change things in editing.

The pictures of the Forearm Rockets and the Chest Armor are labelled "design effects only". I guess they just photoshopped them. But nevertheless - awesome figure!

I think I said this before on here, regardless I have said it someplace... I don't know why they do these teasers. They always make the figure look kind of... eh. Then you see the full pics and are wowed.

Which... maybe that's why they do it. Similar to how Amazon lies about shipping times (saying they're longer than they are).

Fantastic! I skipped on Mark III, but I'm going to go for this one! I agree the neck is too skinny but I'm willing to let it go since the rest of it is so awesome! It's loaded to the gills--it's almost like a DX, especially with the light up base.

To me the neck doesn't really bother me, I think the wrists need to be a bit thicker if anything. Not much, like a mm in diameter.

Even if they never change anything... I have no issue buying this. It looks amazing inaccuracies be damned.

Yeah, I hope HT releases a 3 pack of the MK 1-3 bases. This isn't exactly a figure that parts out well so the Armor base will be nearly impossible to get, let alone 3 extras of them! Come on Hot Toys! Release a Armory Environment/stand set like the 'man suit' if you have to!

Dude the mark 6 will be the one best to go next to war machine imo ,as 4 the "high quality" stark sculpt.. it will be a brand new never b4 seen sculpt ..the mech test sculpt is awesome but it will cause an uproar if it were reused on this figure ..its one thing to re-use a sculpt within a helmet like what happened with bdm3, but 2 reuse a full sculpted head is a different story ...+ the mech test has a serious look ..id imagine since there going for the donut scene this sculpt will have a cocky smile or something along those lines.

Centrocal
04-16-2010, 07:48 AM
They definitely won't use the Mech test sculpt cause that would totally defeat the figure. The sculpt is the entire selling point of the mech test version.

Im just wondering if the sculpt will be compatible with any of the mark suits cause of the light bulb neck. I hope Hot Toys thought ahead about that.

figures can be independent of their original film treatments or subject matters. just because a movie might suck, doesn't mean the figure and its associated design has to suck too. look at terminator salvation, avp requiem etc... crap films, but well designed figures that did well.

same as how liking military figures doesn't necessarily make you like or support war.

Realistically it'll be a tweaked suit there too....gotta sell more toys. I love the light up stand and the articulation. I don't see how any fan of Iron Man would NOT want this in their collection. Also the "Long Neck" comes from them not pushing the head down all the way onto the adapter. Same thing used to happen with the Mark III and was that way in a few promo shots.

I didnt think I'd have any interest in a standard Mk IV as I loved the battle damage on the III (and I don't like how the thighs look on the IV if I'm being picky) - BUT..... this just looks incredible from an engineering point of view. Absolutely beautiful.

dedguy
04-16-2010, 01:34 PM
I'm currently of the opinion that the whole DX thing is pretty meaningless. The only difference I have seen is that they have move-able eyes. There's nothing else special about them and despite what people seem to think, at least based on the small sample size we have, DX ≠ re-hash. There's been re-hashed figures both DX and not and not all the DX figures are rehashes.

after the film release sounds about right, although they do seem to be making an effort to get the movie stuff out closer to the film's release.

dedguy
04-16-2010, 01:51 PM
I'm getting both regardless but I'm sure HT will throw in some cool features/accessories to make the VI really interesting. Unlike the mkII and III some of the stuff could work with either the IV or VI. Like if they don't do a flip up mask on this one (which it sounds like they aren't) I'm sure they will on the VI and the VI head will also work on the IV.

I don't want to quote the whole first page pic, but if you look at the close up pic of the chest piece, you can see his shoulder pads has somewhat of a minimal battle damage paint, it isn't the flash.

One big stumbling block HT might run into later on is the size disparity between the bulkier Mark IV and VI armor compared to the Mark V (the suitcase armor). The Hot Toys Mark IV is a bit too slim, but not overly so. However, it's closer in size to the Mark V as seen in the film.

It's fairly obvious that the suitcase armor is a slimmer fit and is overall thinner in form factor.

What happens when HT makes their Mark V figure? The Mark IV figure looks about the size the suitcase armor looks (judging from internal proportions from the trailer) in the shown footage so far. Will HT's Mark V figure be the same size as their Mark IV and VI? Or will it be smaller? I can't imagine the latter because he'd be too small compared to other 1/6 figures.

The Mark IV will always look thicker when there is someone in it but in the film they CGI it to look slimmer. They did the same with the first film. People need to understand that HT is going for what you'll see in the film not what you'll see in the behind the scenes or production sneaks.

He looks really thin at the waist here:

I fear this 2.

I really dont think the waist would make that much of a difference. The only changes from mark 4 to mark 5 would be the fact that the figure would be shorter, minus the shoulder pads and the calves, but overall the waist would remain the same since in the movie I think the flaps around the waist are pretty much the same style.

And I am sure Mark 6 would have pretty much the same build as Mark 4.

They definitely won't use the Mech test sculpt cause that would totally defeat the figure. The sculpt is the entire selling point of the mech test version.

Yes and No. I think people are assuming a regular head sculpt is coming because of the accessories (in that donut scene Tony Stark has no helmet) and imo that might not be the case. The new head sculpt could end up being the standard Iron Man head with raised visor look the previous figures had.

HT has done this before (mixing and matching accessories) by packing in the Machine Gun (used by The Joker only in his iconic outfit) with the Bank Robber version. If so, then to duplicate that scene in IM2 with HT's figures you'll need to have this figure PLUS the Mech Test version Tony Stark head sculpt i.e. a double purchase.

The more I look at I love the little bit of paint scratches on this suit. The Mark III was brand new in the movies and used only in Gulmira and the final battle. This armor, in the movie, has been in use for about 6 months, so it's a nice little detail.

Mike, are you ordering the entire line?

That's the plan. I might sell off my TDK stuff if the line gets extensive. I'm definitely in for 2 Mark IVs. That LED stand screams an eventual Tony's Lab set up even if its peacemealed and since the figures from the first film would go with it, I'm assuming if they do it they'll put out the parts and pieces. I also want to get him with Stark head holding the box of donuts, that is such a cool scene that I have to have it.

All these knitpicks are hilarious though. Too skinny, next it'll be too short or too tall, then it'll be too red or too maroon.

The Mark IV will always look thicker when there is someone in it but in the film they CGI it to look slimmer. They did the same with the first film. People need to understand that HT is going for what you'll see in the film not what you'll see in the behind the scenes or production sneaks.

Wasn't that scene in CGI though Mike? I was just pointing out that the Mark IV looked thick in that scene since plasmid mentioned that it was. Those who want the thicker look should turn to the maquette. :D

This may have been mentioned but anyone else notice that none of the pics show his hands up in a repulsor firing or flight stabilizer position? I looks as if the hand armor is articulated so I'm hoping the lower half of it flips up so he can extend his palm and fingers more upward than the III, but since no pics show that (that I've seen anyway) it's got me worried that armor won't move at all.

It's not just about what the suit looks like, it's what it can do and what it represents to Tony and the story. As of right now, we have no idea what the Mark VI is capable of.

If what the suit does in the film is awesome, or it serves as a result of significant character development in Tony, then that would be worth the purchase of both the Mark IV and VI.

That and I'm of the type that can appreciate small changes in detail making a big difference.

I just want to point out that, technically Black Widow is the only other figure thats been Officially announced by Hot Toys
Im sure they will do Mark 5 and 6 but maybe they are planning to wait until these 4 figures are released before anything else is announced. It could be a very long wait. This seems like a 'series 1'

Series 2 could be:

Mark5 ( I can see this as a DX )

Mark6 ( I can imagine this being like BD IM with swappable armor) Also include Hall of Armor back drop

Whiplash v2 ( If it exists )

Nick fury

Series 3 could be:

Battle Damage War Machine (Odds are they want to sell this mold twice) also could include James Rhodes head without helmet

Battle Drone Armor

Pepper Pots ( Not likely )

And then they go back and do Iron Monger :monkey3

Yeah, take your time. You don't want to end up regretting buying something when another thing you want comes along.

It's hard to balance and paying Ebay prices can be painful for older figures.

However, I just sold off basically 2 collections of things that I went overboard on in the past and it's been a lot of work to get it all out of here.

When I decided to start collecting statues and 1/6 figures it was kind of refreshing. Starting from scratch, seeing what was already available, and trying to keep in mind previous collecting "reaches".

This stuff is just so much better and it's hard to pass up any figures when you see them first coming out though as a lot of them are just so well done.

I've got to keep in mind that there is going to be a DX IM IMO so not to get too crazy with all these armors. I know I'll get this IV, probably pass on the V and then look to the VI and maybe track down a I.

that's just your own perception. the CGI will try its best to match the real deal. if ever it got caught to appear slimmer then that's just the failing of the CG artists.

besides, nowhere in the 1st film did mark III look as skinny as the figures ht made. and nowhere in all the trailers and promo shots i've seen of the 2nd film does mark IV look as slim as this new figure. he should look like a knight in shining armor, not the ninja from metal gear solid, proportionally speaking.

look at this promo pic(CG or real costume? who cares!), this is not a behind the scene photo or a production sneak... look how bulkier he is(ok technically this is mark VI, but chestpiece aside it's the same costume):

I was about to say I agree that it's too thin, but at least comparing direct tracings of the HT prototype pictures to tracings off that promotional art they seem almost identical in girth. I think the limbs might just be slightly longer (and by a couple millimeters at most) and the head is very slightly too narrow which makes the whole figure look thinner even though the body has the same girth.

i looked back at the first promo pic in the 1st page, and you're right, it doesnt appear that different. but i'd rather trust my first impression. upon seeing pics of the legacy 1/4 statue, i immediately thought they nailed the proportion to a t. upon seeing pics of ht's, my thought was... close(closer than mark III) but no cigar.

dedguy
04-17-2010, 01:49 PM
I took 5% off the height. I think it's that the figure is too proportionally tall. All the parts are the right girth, it's just overall slightly too long/tall. I think that may be in part because they want it to fit in the the mkII/III which is definitely proportionally too tall.

I think this looks pretty much exactly right (I mean other than the distortion caused my the artificial squishing).

Yeah I agree. They just need to shorten his various appendages and torso proportionately without actually shortening the overall figure, which would require the entire thing to be slightly scaled up. Is that difficult to do in regards to manufacturing? They'd have to make the molds a bit bigger, right?

All HT needs to do to make me happy is to have the Mark IV look as if there could be a 1/6 body, albeit a thin one, inside the armor. The CGI suit in the film does that just fine. I can imagine that Robert Downey Junior really is inside the suit. With the Mark III, Hot Toys failed in that regard:

They got the height right on the Mark III, but he's too thin compared to other figures:

That's what the MKIV has to fix.

PapitoMX
04-17-2010, 06:00 PM
It seem they made WM the proper scale as to which it actually looks like there is a 1/6 Don C. in it, especially the pic with face mask off. I hope they do the same with the MK4 because if not, it will look very weird if Whiplash ends up looking exactly same size or bigger the the MK4.

dedguy
04-17-2010, 06:03 PM
Well if they're working of 3D models then it's possible but if they're working off hand sculpted elements then everything would have to be totally re-sculpted from scratch I would think. I really have no idea.

I wouldn't be upset if they changed the figure, but likewise I wouldn't be upset if they didn't. I'm happy with it either way for different reasons.

edit: War Machine's waist, head, and upper arms are all about the same size as the mkIV. It just has bulkier armor in certain places, most notably the shoulders and legs.

No, the paint finish. In the real photos it looks like someone has been handling it for far too long like the original Mark 3. Like heading towards matte sticky surface plastic.

In the promo shots it's lovely and rich/deep very vibrant and doesn't look plastic.

It's a bit better here but it just doesn't look as beautifully smooth as the promos.

Perhaps I'm not seeing the flaw that you are in that store display pic. To me, as long as the Mark IV looks like the battle damage Mark III figure in terms of paint quality (just without the BD effects), it's all good:

dedguy, you're absolutely right. when a professional takes it, with all of their equipment, special cameras, lighting, photo tents, etc...it will look a hell of a lot better than some random guy takin a photo. sorry, vodoun, but you're dead wrong. and imo the paint finish still looks absolutely great in those last few photos.

and that's a great photo, plasmid.

my only hang up so far is with the wrists. how could a human arm fit in there?

That pic is from forum member OMG. I don't even have mine yet! :lol wtf is taking HT so long with the bulk Mark III BD stock?

Anyway, I can understand what Vodoun is worried about. As far as Iron Man collectibles go, it's been hit and miss with paint application on a lot of products. I mean, if Sideshow can't get a consistent paint job on a $2000 statue and the first Mark III from Hot Toys had a lower torso that didn't match the color of the rest of the figure, there's something to worry about for future products.

The suit is basically skin tight and the human wrist is actually very thin, even on very muscular people which RDJ is not so much. My wrist is about 2.1"x1.5" (I keep a fabric tape measure at my desk). I'm pretty thin but even at twice that it's not a lot of mass.

All that said, I think both the biceps and the forearms are too long which is what imo is causing the appearance issue. If you look at the suit in the film though the wrists are very thin.

the suit was not skin tight in the 1st film...

and it's not skintight in the next film:

like i said, he should look like a medieval knight wearing an armor suit. spandex is skin tight. mech suit is not a spandex.

Well part of what might not look right is the simple fact that it's an articulated figure and there needs to be gaps for movement that don't exist on a statue and are much smaller on the real thing.
you may be right. i think there's some truth in that. however, i was impressed by ht's war machine. i thought the proportion is damn near perfect. mark IV is close. really close. i just wish ht could nudge it a bit more to the finish line.
