When I saw this in Eddie Wong's pics, it looked like the neck was shorter and the chest was beefier and over all better proportioned in comparrison to the mk IV.

But looking at the official specs, it seems like it will have just been the pose in Eddie's pics because the neck length and body proportions look the same as the mk IV. And why wouldn't it since it is essentially the same suit with diff paint and chest piece.

Any way, it looks great, but I shall be sticking with my mk IV order! Only need one Iron Man on display to represent the character/film/franchise. If it had been better proportioned then it would have probably swayed me to try and change my order.

Can't wait for mk IV and War Machine to be released!!!

And where the ____ is Stark's head sculpt, both for the mk IV and this! For ____s sake I wish they would pull their fingers out (whoever it may be) and get it bloody sorted already. Won't be posing it with the head sculpt or anything. Just want to see the damn thing!

Any way to repeat myself... this looks great! I'm glad I'm not a completist though :lol

If you look the neck looks longer on the Clean Helmet, that's because I am sure they are using the MK VI head. The Battle Damaged head shows less neck, I am sure it is designed a little different and goes over the neck more, or it looks like they did not push the head down in some of the pics, because the neck does look shorter in some of them

because theoretically it's gonna be a different sculpt then previous versions. They probably have a new sculpt stuck in the approval process which is why they can't show it yet.

Going by this picture, this is the superior figure.
It has a Shorter neck as I am sure in the other pics it is just not pushed completely on. (look at the shot of his back, you can see the head looks like it's balancing on the neck)

There is definitely something a little odd going on here. If you look at the overall design of the helmets, the BD version seems far more elongated. Also, the foreheads of the faceplates have a different design. They've probably used the non-BD mark IV faceplate/helmet as a stand-in.

Looking at the pics again I see what you mean. Hopefully the head just needs pushing down a bit or something because in some pics it doesn't seem like they have. Either way will be sticking with mk IV.

Btw, whats the music in your vid? Sounds familiar and I can't quite put my finger on it. Driving me nuts!

3. I ____ing hate stylized bases.
4. Where the hell is the Mark V.

Looks fantastic! Do you guys really think Hot Toys will still make a DX? It seems like this one is fully loaded already!

I think I'm just going to stick to the Mark IV with the circular reactor, though. I never liked the switch away from it in the comics. The circle in the chest IS Iron Man, just like the bat is batman, the diamond with the "S" is Supes and the spider is Spidey.

Ya its awesome there doing that.:) ..but why no hall of Armour base.:(??

I could be wrong but maybe the VI just replaces the IV's spot in the hall of armor, unless it was built from the ground up. I remember the screenshot where it said "Awaiting upgrade" or something similar to that. I'm guessing you'd want them all to be in a hall of armor type display though, regardless of how many are displayed in the movie :wink1:

if HT won't do it, i can't wait to design the hall of armors myself (just design it, have someone build it)

i dream of it all the time. mark 1, 2, 3 BD, 5, 6, and WM on light up armor wall! GASM!

It honestly looked better on display than it does in these photos; hopefully the neck has actually been shortened and it wasn't just the pose that made it looked shorter at the Tokyo Toy Show. I also hope this figure isn't ridicuously priced and isn't coming out any time soon, because I've only had my battle-damaged Mark III for a few months :pow

I like that the clean/dirty mask can now be swapped from the light up or face head; that's something I said they should have done on the Mark III BD, and I don't know why they didn't.

I know I thought that the MJ BAD put to rest that the DX was there just to redo figures that were already made. Look at all the stuff that comes with the T-1000 yet he is not a DX.

To me a DX comes with PERS. The only thing I can see that would use PERS would be a Stark head that goes with the Driving Outfit along with the MK V figure. However, Hot Toys could very well just make that a MMS figure as well just by dropping the PERS

This is the real figure, they aren't fake photos. Certain lighting/post-processing can make things look a little more artificial though.

Don't care much for the EX but overall, this figure is awesome. The only thing I can find to actually complain about is the paint on the ab area. I believe the Mark VI had silver lines instead of gold. I know this sounds like super nitpicking, but it bugs me for some reason.
Regardless, even if HT doesn't change the color of the lines, this will be bought. It looks amazing.

I got the exclusive with reward points it was about cost of a normal fig. I think $214 is extensive however, it beats buying a clean / battle damage version at $185 a piece.

Yeesh 242, I preordered the exclusive, will most likely cancel unless I want to make a Tony stark figure as well. I tell myself 1 Iron Man thats red/gold in my collection and I have the MK 3 BD, so I might sell to get this or the MK 4.

As much as the BD stuff is nice I actually mainly display the clean parts, might just settle for the MK4 bcuz I love the super skinny look.

I like the way you think!

My mentality is that SS is significantly more expensive than 3rd party retailers, so that coupled with exclusives can up a figure anywhere from 20-60 bucks. I know with Joe Exclusives its like 30-40 and now with this figure its 40 for the arm.

Assuming you buy pass on this exclusive and buy the original you already save 40+ bucks, thats a 3rd (more or less of a figure) let alone pass on the MK 6 and go for the 4.

But thats just me, I am happy with 1 Iron Man. My only grip about my MK 3 BD is the lack of articulation in the waist.

$210 before shipping is outrageous. I'd be embarrassed to admit spending that much on a single figure, especially when their DX series hasn't even cost this much. For $210, it needs to include a lot more than a couple extra plastic panels, and ought to be virtually flawless. He's way too skinny, the head sculpt is unknown but their track record's been pretty poor so far, and there's no PERS. Their entire Iron Man 2 line is overpriced by about $30 per figure.

Yeah, I ended up getting my BD for 189 shipped in order to save the 232 shipped for the exclusive version. So I view it in terms of 50 bucks for a crushed helmet that lays on my shelf type deal. Its not a deal breaker. The Arm is great, but I mean iono.

Also TBH I never saw 2. I heard it was terrible and my friends all said I would hate it. Only reason Im buying War Machine is because hes awesome, the Mk 6 not so much. 4, just looks great and its cheap enough to boot for what your getting (since yu can find it for 161)

At $190 it's a better sell, and I'm on board for that price. It's very much in line with the Mark III BD and a DX figure price.

At a guess, because it is a full fore arm, the scene that springs to mind is when he is sat on the couch watching the news about the 10 rings or whatever refining that piece of armour. Blasts the glass doors and then suits up in the mk III for the first time.

EDIT: Even though this fore arm is from the wrong armour, it could still be used to replicate that scene.

I don't exactly look at this like you do, but you're right in what you're saying. However, you have to realize that some figures require a lot more R&D than others, especially when an armour is involved. Mark my words (no pun intended): the Mark V will sell for over $200.00.

I guess it's just a gimmicky inclusion so you can have a bit of fun with your other figures. Black Widow is seen in a trailer wearing the IM arm.

There was a scene in the trailers where Scarlett's character is trying on the glove at Stark's party and firing it. The scene was cut from the film.

ah, you may be right. :clap

since it doesnt seem like the mark 3 arm, more like the mark 4/6 arm.

Too bad that scene didnt make it to the movie.

So are we getting a 1/6 leopard dress for scarlett now as opposed to the 1/6 men suit from IM1? :lol

$214.99 + $25 shipping to UK, $239.99 = £157.13 + FedEx clearance import tax fees anything between £28 to £44. Total £185 to £201.13

WTF Ebay all the way thats what i do.Most ive ever paid was £165 for the BD Mark 3 and that was the day it got released in HK.

The Predator and Joker prices are what I paid from Toysquare, and the Batman DX is what BBTS is currently selling it for.

Then you should probably wait to see what price BBTS and Toysquare lists their Mark VI for. They usually set their prices lower than Sideshow does.

He does look wimpy, but I feel the overall design is balanced vs being all blocky and chunky like the mk6. Plus his poses can be much more dynamic (the MK 4) due to his proportions.

That was after the market pushed the price upwards for 2nd and 3rd wave shipments; it was $185 when first released, which is what I paid from Toysquare. And when I say released I mean I ordered after the figure was out in Hong Kong. There's no reason the Mark VI figure should cost more than the Mark III battle-damaged figure did. I mean c'mon, the T-1000 is a $155 figure and look at everything he comes with.

BBTS always sets all their PO for $199 and the they adjust it.

On to another topic I have a feeling sooner rather than later, Hot Toys will start to price their stuff $200 or more because they can and they think they are THE 1/6 company right now. Just like how Lexus started with great quality for cheaper price for luxury and now, they are no cheaper than a BMW or Mercedes.

It looks like they used both BD MK3 with the flip up facelplate head (and with slightly redesigned battle damages on the faceplate) and Mark IV light-up helmet in the promo pics.

I just preordered the exclusive but I'm a little worried, if the faceplates had to fit the two heads I hope they'll go with the same shape as the Mark IV helmet because the battle damaged head looks really off (and that's why I decided to use de clean head on my BD mark 3 for instance).

Other than these (serious) issues, it looks like their best IM figure as for today.

No. It only saves a person money if they buy every figure Hot Toys' releases. And when it's two separate figures one can sell the first release to buy the second one, which is what I did with my original Mark III; it only cost me $15 to "upgrade" to the battle-damaged version. I'm not saying however that they should have parted this out into two separate figures; I'm saying it's at least $25 overpriced.

How much harder would it be just to add that last feature to this figure, I mean he did do a LOT of flying with this suit on. I'm sure they wouldn't add that feature to the Mark V since it was never shown that it could fly, so this means we may never see and IM suit w/ light up boots.....:dunno

This figure is definitely worth a $25 premium over the Mark IV; the problem is that the Mark IV is $20 overpriced to begin with, so an extra $25 puts this Mark VI at a higher price than any Hot Toys figure ever before to my knowledge.

The Mark III cost $160 and the Battle Damaged edition cost $185; a $25 premium.

They're asking $180 for the Mark IV and $210 for the Mark VI; someone somewhere in the process got greedy and decided to make an extra $20 per figure.

The Iron Man figures have WAY more in the way of individually cast injection molded pieces. That gets real expensive real fast production wise. Plus who knows what the pricing differences are in licensing. I imagine older licenses regardless of popularity have to be cheaper than brand new stuff.

I don't know if anyone else has noticed but prices go up on everything. They differ of course in the amount they go up but at least around here when HT figures where coming out at $100-150 range movie ticket prices where $2-3 cheaper per ticket. It's called inflation. Inflation often out strips income increases at certain times in history. We're in a world-wide economic depression right now. Get used to it.

Right. I don't want a multiple of WM since I'm not a fan of the Rhodey sculpt and with the Mark IV it'll depend on the Downey sculpt on whether or not I get an extra. I want an extra of this to display in the Battle Damaged mode as well but at $200+ that might not be feasable considering all the other stuff milling around.

I think the rhodey sculpt looks 10X better than that of the mark II tbh. But diff strokes for diff folks I guess.

Inflation? Are you kidding? Battle-Damaged Mark III just came out 5 months ago; inflation doesn't account for a 12% price hike in 5 months. At that rate we'd be paying $330 for Iron Man 3 figures in two years. Or to look at it another way, we would have only paid $90 for the original Mark III. And regarding parts, most of them are just duplicates of parts they had to cast anyhow, painted differently. He doesn't have $25 worth of extra parts over the Mark III Battle-Damaged, and the Mark IV certainly doesn't have $20 worth of extra parts over the original Mark III.

Somebody down the line figured they could charge an extra $20 per figure and collectors would gladly bend over and take it; it may have not been Hot Toys, though. It could be Marvel charging extra licensing fees, or even Robert Downey Jr's people charging a fat likeness fee.

Then again, seeing as how the cost of a Predator (http://toys2.net/product.php?productid=20974&cat=0&page=) has also gone up $20 since the classic Predator was released, maybe it is Hot Toys that's taking us for more per figure.

Production costs are rising as well. China isn't as cheap as it used to be either. Notice Sideshow's prices creeping upward as well?


SHANGHAI (AP) -- Factory workers demanding better wages and working conditions are hastening the eventual end of an era of cheap costs that helped make southern coastal China the world's factory floor.

A series of strikes over the past two months have been a rude wakeup call for the many foreign companies that depend on China's low costs to compete overseas, from makers of Christmas trees to manufacturers of gadgets like the iPad.

Where once low-tech factories and scant wages were welcomed in a China eager to escape isolation and poverty, workers are now demanding a bigger share of the profits. The government, meanwhile, is pushing foreign companies to make investments in areas it believes will create greater wealth for China, like high technology.

Many companies are striving to stay profitable by shifting factories to cheaper areas farther inland or to other developing countries, and a few are even resuming production in the West.

"China is going to go through a very dramatic period. The big companies are starting to exit. We all see the writing on the wall," said Rick Goodwin, a China trade veteran of 22 years, whose company links foreign buyers with Chinese suppliers.

"I have 15 major clients. My job is to give the best advice I can give. I tell it like it is. I tell them, put your helmet on, it's going to get ugly," said Goodwin, who says dissatisfied workers and hard-to-predict exchange rates are his top worries.

Beijing's decision to stop tethering the Chinese currency to the U.S. dollar, allowing it to appreciate and thus boosting costs in yuan, has multiplied the uncertainty for companies already struggling with meager profit margins.

In an about-face mocked on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," Wham-O, the company that created the Hula-Hoop and Slip 'n Slide, decided to bring half of its Frisbee production and some production of its other products back to the U.S.

At the other end of the scale, some in research-intensive sectors such as pharmaceutical, biotech and other life sciences companies are also reconsidering China for a range of reasons, including costs and incentives being offered in other countries.

"Life sciences companies have shifted some production back to the U.S. from China. In some cases, the U.S. was becoming cheaper," said Sean Correll, director of consulting services for Burlington, Mass.-based Emptoris.

That may soon become true for publishers, too. Printing a 9-by-9-inch, 334-page hardcover book in China costs about 44 to 45 cents now, with another 3 cents for shipping, says Goodwin. The same book costs 65 to 68 cents to make in the U.S.

"If costs go up by half, it's about the same price as in the U.S. And you don't have 30 days on the water in shipping," he says.

Even with recent increases, wages for Chinese workers are still a fraction of those for Americans. But studies do show China's overall cost advantage is shrinking.

Labor costs have been climbing about 15 percent a year since a 2008 labor contract law that made workers more aware of their rights. Tax preferences for foreign companies ended in 2007. Land, water, energy and shipping costs are on the rise.

In its most recent survey, issued in February, restructuring firm Alix Partners found that overall China was more expensive than Mexico, India, Vietnam, Russia and Romania.

Mexico, in particular, has gained an edge thanks to the North American Free Trade Agreement and fast, inexpensive trucking, says Mike Romeri, an executive with Emptoris, the consulting firm.

Makers of toys and trinkets, Christmas trees and cheap shoes already have folded by the thousands or moved away, some to Vietnam, Indonesia or Cambodia. But those countries lack the huge work force, infrastructure and markets China can offer, and most face the same labor issues as China.

So far, the biggest impact appears to be in and around Shenzhen, a former fishing village in Guangdong province, bordering Hong Kong, that is home to thousands of export manufacturers.

That includes Taiwan-based Foxconn Technology, a supplier of iPhones and iPads to Apple Inc. Foxconn responded to a spate of suicides at its 400,000-worker Shenzhen complex with pay hikes that more than doubled basic monthly worker salaries to $290. Strike-stricken suppliers to Honda Motor Co. and Toyota Motor Corp., among many others, also have hiked wages.

Foxconn refused repeated requests for comment on plans to move much of its manufacturing capacity to central China's impoverished Henan province, where a local government website has advertised for tens of thousands of workers on its behalf.

But among other projects farther inland, Foxconn is teaming up with some of the biggest global computer makers to build what may be the world's largest laptop production hub in Chongqing, a western China city of 32 million where labor costs are estimated to be 20 to 40 percent lower than in coastal cities.

Given the intricate supply chains and logistics systems that have helped make southern China an export manufacturing powerhouse, such changes won't be easy.

But for manufacturers looking to boost sales inside fast-growing China, shifting production to the inland areas where many migrant workers come from, and costs are lower, offers the most realistic alternative.

"The new game is to find a way to do the domestic market," says Goodwin.

Many factories in Foshan, another city in Guangdong that saw strikes at auto parts plants supplying Japan's Honda, have left in the past few months, mostly moving inland to Henan, Hunan and Jiangxi, said Lin Liyuan, dean at the privately run Institute of Territorial Economics in Guangzhou.

Massive investments in roads, railways and other infrastructure are reducing the isolation of the inland cities, part of a decade-old "Develop the West" strategy aimed at shrinking the huge, politically volatile gap in wealth between city dwellers and the country's 600 million farmers.

Gambling that the unrest will not spill over from foreign-owned factories, China's leaders are using the chance to push investment in regions that have lagged the country's industrial boom.

They have little choice. Many of today's factory workers have higher ambitions than their parents, who generally saved their earnings from assembling toys and television sets for retirement in their rural hometowns. They are also choosier about wages and working conditions. "The conflicts are challenging the current set-up of low-wage, low-tech manufacturing, and may catalyze the transformation of China's industrial sector," said Yu Hai, a sociology professor at Shanghai's Fudan University.

Production costs are rising as well. China isn't as cheap as it used to be either. Notice Sideshow's prices creeping upward as well?
If the extra money they're charging is going straight to the factory workers, then that's great. They deserve it. Unfortunately we don't know if that's the case, or if $19 of that extra $20 they're charging per figure is going straight into some suit's already overflowing pockets.

Im going for the MK4, I feel that with the Tony Stark portrait (not in a helmet) with the sunglasses and doughnuts can be more fun, then just the MK 6 with diff body parts. + Youll save alot more.

since HT is going for premium pricing, perhaps we should all make a suggestion to HT to make a bare bones base line for the collectors who just want to have a figure and not all the stuff that comes with it. seriously, who needs all the crap they add on to a figure? bunch of stuff I never use and just stay in the box and taking up space.

okay, the official proto pics don't look as good as the pics in eddie wong's blog. the neck is too long and the torso looks slimmer.

and the price is kinda steep. approx 190usd in my country.

everything else looks damn good though. love the base--don't understand why anyone wouldn't. it's art.

also, good thing it's only coming out in Q4 or early next year. my wallet is straining under all the recent preorders...

I get what you're saying but this, but you're talking about preference. You might not use all the accessories but another collector might. I think HT's increase in price has many collectors feeling left out or perceived value of the figure isn't worth 214$ for them. That said, I've preordered mine via flex

Looks great but I prefer the look of the circular arc reactor so I'm gonna go with the Mk.4.

I agree, I prefer the circular arc reactor, that to me will always be Iron Man (I'm an old school fan). Plus not a fan of the price, BD, the weird circle arc reactor underneath the chest triangle, etc. I'm sticking w/ Mark IV.

That's why I suggest a "separate" bare bones line. Similar to a car where there is always a starting point then as you move up on the price ladder you get more goodies/junks. It is a preference thing as you say. To me, I don't need a display stand, or multiple hands when they have articulated fingers. And I don't really care that much about the light up feature. It looks good but I really turn it on occationally with my mk3. So really, if HT make a bare bones ironman that looks good and moves great, then I wouldn't mind it doesn't come with several interchangable BD pieces.

I don't see the price increase justifiable with the Mark 6. It's basically the same mold as the Mark 4 with different paint app and some minor tweaks. I hope HT would consider the price point for their future releases. If this keeps up I'm afraid to say I have to stop somewhere down the line. I would love to continue collecting but as much as I hate to say this but reality bites as there are more important things in life than collectibles. :(

If you don't want everything, part it out yourself. I doubt too many people can part out an Iron Man, so any parts you sell might be worth something. :dunno

With head sculpts and hands. But I feelt with leg panels and stuff I would imagine they would be hard to sell since they can only be used on that figure. Ive been noticing alot of support for the Mk4. hahah

Sorry if someone already brought this up but with that exclusive arm, I'm guess you can reenact the deleted scene shown here:

Common speculation is its not approved. Like many others here, I don't know why HT must always include a Tony Stark Head in almost all the IM Figs.
