Im just curious as to why they chose the original m3 figure for this stealth version ..you would think they would base it on the bdm3 newly developed body ,spose its down 2 development costs ..but still there would be very few of these made right? ..but i am not complaining the original looks better proportionwise 2 me anyway and its nice that its getting a paintjob that actually compliments the figure.

The BD MK3 wasn't made yet. It was a con/store exclusive and needed to use an existing mold. I refuse to buy it just on the grounds its not a real armor. Its just Hot Toy's Hasbroing.

Ah..it is a nice to have I admit. I am scaling back with all the IM2 stuff coming and the possibility of 10 - 12 (or more) IM related figs.


I'll keep a few from IM and order a few from IM 2 to keep that license in perspective. The real challenge will be holding out until on all the Mark's from IM2 then deciding which one(s) to own.

What are the odds they spring an SDCC EX that wasn't already announced? Gunmetal was announced with the others....I'm guessing it'll make the rounds at shows but go "site exclusive" at Sideshow instead of a Con Exclusive if in fact it turns up for order.

04-23-2010, 06:45 AM
I hope it's rooted so it won't limit head movement.

Plus I like dolly hair... :lol

I just hope she doesn't have a huge bald spot in the back like Silken Floss.

GrayWolf87
04-23-2010, 06:51 AM
I think sculpted hair sculpted hair, because I dont think they could get rooted to look right. Also, lately their female figures have had sculpted hair. If it was made out of a soft enough material it shouldnt limit poseability much. It would also look wavey and layered or whatever like it does in hunnipots's avarter gif.

Will see anyway. I'm not bothered as long as it looks good. Could be made of of feckin' seaweed for all I care as long as it looked right

Been waiting for any info on her for the whole day yesterday. The build up on her figure is really getting high on my anticipation meter. I hope we get a glimpse over the weekend. But you're right the film is going to open there next week so whats another week of wait. :)

What's odd is that among all the cool customs and HT's own IM products, they also displayed Sidehow's 1/2 scale maquette and life size IM bust. I wonder if HT is taking notes on the 1/2 maquette because IMO that piece has the best proportions of any IM product I've ever seen (QA issues aside).

why would they take notes ?? they are done with the mk3.. sideshow and HT have a really good relationship, sideshow always gives them product for their store and hot toys helped them develope alot of their 1/6 scale stuff.
and its and Iron Man expo, so displaying Sideshow stuff is a given :D

I think the show is meant to be more of an Iron man Expo rather than a Hot Toys expo, it's meant to celebrate (or hype) the 2nd movie release. It just happens so that Hot Toys are the ones throwing the party.

I have a buddy who is working in the IM2 marketing and said it is all to hype up for the next film and bring IM fans out. So your take on it is pretty accurate. :)

“A NASA Astronaut (Lt. R Crusoe ) stranded on a lone planet” as the theme, concept motivated by the movie “Robinson Crusoe on Mars”, and NASA EVA space suit developed by Stark Industries"

Another Sideshow piece...

That's a rad custom. It's a shame then how inaccurate Hot Toys was on the proportions of the figure and that second photo combined with the color of the paint job and background really makes it glaringly more obvious.

So many awesome customs, and the only flaw bringing most of them down is a fault of Hot Toys themselves. Good thing some of the customizers really overcome it with creative designs.

What are the odds they spring an SDCC EX that wasn't already announced? Gunmetal was announced with the others....I'm guessing it'll make the rounds at shows but go "site exclusive" at Sideshow instead of a Con Exclusive if in fact it turns up for order.

Well, SS did announce their stuff much earlier than they have in years past. Maybe HT was just waiting to announce it. Its a long shot and probably not the case but that figure would make sense if they wanted a Con Ex out there again.

i'm not obsessed. i'm just a little bit disappointed that after they said it'd be shown last thursday (or friday? idr) that there's still nothing to be shown. poor business ethics imo. not obsession.
black widow is one of my least interested figures of the franchise. iron man suits, war machine, whiplash, hopefully iron monger, maybe drones, and nick fury are the more important. if i had to skip some, black widow would easily be on the skip list.

Let me snap a shot for you guys really quick, we recently rebuilt the Mark 2 using the original templates to keep the War Machine mark still active, built a placeholder Mark IV as well to show progression but I still haven't gotten around to fixing that Mark 3....
