Finish on the paint job looks rough. I think this will be like the MkIII, where I didn't like it when I saw it in person.

Could you shoot some comparison pics with the Kotobukiya Statue or Hot Toys Mark III? I'm contemplating getting this Mark IV over the Hot Toys one and like to know how they look next to each other.

The statue looks nice.. But I understand that it's make of plastic rather than polystone...
Feel kinna cheap, not worth the money. ;)

you'll have to be quick to get one because it's limited to only 12000 pieces wordwide :rotfl

Looks cool. Kind of kicked around getting this as I like the look (of course) and pose especially. Do kind of wish the SS piece went with this pose. I'll hold off with so many IM pieces coming from HT and the SS piece.

Koto's Mk.4... just a smidge shorter than HT Mk,3... could very well pass off as 1/6...

HT's Mk.3 ver.1 with Koto's Mk.4

Comments on Koto's Mk.4:
1. Lack armour details
2. Some inaccuracies
3. Paint could have been better, rather dull. Painting on the new HT BD Mk.3 is miles ahead.
4. Surface is rather rough, seen better casting on PVC that retains smooth surface and sharp angles.
5. Base is larger than what the arc reactor at 1:1 would be.

Really like the look of this--I like the light up base. Thinking strongly about getting this one. It'd be my first Iron Man piece.

I did it. I know all the lacks but my first issue was the scale. There's not a big difference on it. Mark III ironman has a bad issue on his abdominal's place; the color fading as you know. And ı didn't want to buy BD. So for HT Mark IV is far away. I did that choice; hope I won't be upset. Thanks

man Koto needs to step up their game....Their Iron Man statue aint that bad, but just saw their Venom and it looks good but the execution is ridiculous, they glued some piece of his mouth together(they didnt sculpt it in one piece).Looks ridiculous.

That Iron Man aint bad.

HYMN

Well; I just received one of them. I opened the box to check the figure. My first impressions:

1) To be honest, not the best Ironman product. But hey; good one. Worth to buy.

2) Paint job isn't excellent but satisfying. Some details of the armor has been forgotten. Paint is a little high from average.

3) Sculpting is very satisfying. Scales of the body parts are very very good.

4) The base is excellent. Good job koto.

Well; total point is 7/10. The worst part is paint job. There's too many lacks but may be fixed.

I sold my HT Ironman Mark III to buy this one. I'm not regretful in adverse I'm happy though. I've sold my HT Ironman Mark III (without Stark head; I've already sold it) for $205 (includes shipping) and I bought this one for $170 (includes shipping also). I've sold the Stark head for $50 and now I have a $80 profit. SO it's sufficent to me for leaving the paint job lacks behind. I didn't like the new HT Ironman Mark IV figure because of the thin body and I have some doubts about it because of the color fading problem on pelvis and on belly of HT Mark III.

Trivia: The base Koto use for Mk.4 is the Arc Reactor with the replaceable palladium core (8 segmentations), powered Mk.4 and 5 in the movie.

Mk.2/WarMachine ran on the Arc Reactor with 10 segmentations (same with the first Reactor that powered Mk.1 and later depleted, and the 2nd Reactor as well).

Very nice, the light up function and especially the light up arc reactor base combined with the great choice of pose makes this one stand out.

HYMN
05-22-2010, 11:32 AM
I made a little painting modification and voila, now it looks better and better.

Heres Kotos WM piece: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=kot10596&mode=retail

The pose looks horrible and it just looks off imo. Isn't the gatling gun on the wrong shoulder as well?

Hmmm...I have been looking at this koto statue as a possible buy. I think the detail on the HT version is far superior but I hate the poseability on hot toys items. Statues are more solid which i really like. And this statue is like half the price right? Can anyone who owns both discuss whether one is better than the other considering price as well?

It's nice, but it begins to lean after a month or so. I have to prop mine up with a pencil eraser head to keep it erect.

Mine leaned after 2 weeks.... that's 2 to 3 months back...

That is not too bad and the light up base looks great (forgot about that). Capstone Comics just put this one on sale and I am mighty tempted since is appears that the SS IM is not going to make in to my collection. My son is a big IM fan so I want to have another representation of him other then the 1:1 bust.

man this leaning things sounds pretty bad...i think i will pass on the koto one then.

Amazon has these for 70 bucks right now so I had to grab one. Mine should be here by end of week. I'll let you know if I have leaning or dim LED problems.

How is the leaning occurring? Is it the feet bending, pegs becoming loose, or just overall vinyl deformation in the legs?

A combination of the feet and legs bending/deforming (mostly the knee/calf region)... Pegs are at the base (these are ABS plastic).

I wonder how hard it would be to fill the legs to add strength. Are they open in any way?

You should be able to detach the glued parts..

Kamandi
08-03-2010, 11:44 PM
Actually I was referring to how water-tight the legs might be. I'm thinking of drilling a small hole in the plug that goes to the upper torso, then filling the legs with plaster or water clay. I may also fill the upper body (especially the arms) with a light material such as Styrofoam beads or cut up packing peanuts to help them hold shape over the long run.

I sent an email to questions@kotous.com today regarding the leaning issue. If I hear back I will post it here.

Just a follow up, I've had this piece on display since early August and have had no problems with the legs warping. Amazon still has this piece listed at $69.99. A very good price and a good looking PVC statue.

I like Kotobukiya, I've got a few of there pieces ,there Boba Fett Statue from there Bounty Hunter line was what really surprised me with how well made he was cause there prices are very reasonable. Sadly there in my loft now cause I've decided to just collect 1/6 so he doesn't really match into my collection anymore.
