Looks great, but will have to keep an eye on that waistline to make sure it doesn't get any thinner in the production figure. I'm disappointed there's no open helmet with Tony Stark sculpt. Honestly, I'd have been happy if they'd thrown in the head from the Mark IV.

All the armours (excluding Mk.1) are design through computers...

Why is HT suddenly down grading their MMS series? No additional tony stark headsculpt, race suit etc?

Well no headsculpt means it'll be alot cheaper, if they included a headscuplt and a race suit it'll qualify as a DX? Sorta like DX 01 Joker where they had Joker and an extra Heath head sculpt and policeman suit

I'll have to get two of these to display clean and BD.

I was really hoping this would be here when I logged on tonight. So awesome. Can't wait. The damaged arm looks so cool, tough call on how to display him.

12-30-2010, 11:48 PM
I was also hoping that the Stark head was included in this figure. What a shame. Still a buy for me, though and hoping that the price is low.

Bellstaff
12-30-2010, 11:49 PM
In order to be "movie accurate", this figure should have more battled damage "scars" on the armor... c'mon!!!!!
Just watch movie...

villainsfan42
12-30-2010, 11:49 PM
this looks amazing, but tbh i'm a bit disappointed they didn't really go full out on this.

they gave us a mk V figure with a little bit of bd extras and a suitcase.
no stark head, and no racetrack suit, and not enough bd parts. too much of it looks pristine, with a destroyed arm and chest...

that being said, this is still one hell of a figure, and i will definitely be buying one when it comes out. :lecture

LipSmack
12-30-2010, 11:55 PM
first thing i noticed is the hands are inacurate, but whatevs its iron man, i just hope the price is lower than the 4 due to lack of alternate head

Thanks Hot Toys!

I don't know why they gave him the Hall of Armor base. I wish they had given him a base with the concrete track or maybe car debris and the fence and a backdrop of the audience.

Agentofchaos
12-31-2010, 12:01 AM
Anybody who has Whiplash has to buy this. I have VI on preorder. And the only other figure from this line that I was looking forward to is Iron Monger. Still the cool factor of this suit is undeniable. Gonna keep my eye on this and for now putting this as a maybe on my list for 2011.

The Mike
12-31-2010, 12:02 AM
No complaints here. I want two of these bad boys. For me its more important than the Mark IV or the VI. I can't wait for ordering day.

So, does this mean we will start to see the 1/4 HT Mark V bust released soon?

senbi575
12-31-2010, 12:18 AM
No alternative head? The first HT Iron Man without a Stark head. Maybe HT is tired of the delays with RDJ? Too bad though. Needs more battle damage too.

The Josh
12-31-2010, 12:42 AM
Yeah, the tooling of the suit may do it as well. For me as I've said in the past I don't display these part Tony sculpts so its no loss for me personally.

You know originally I'd have my doubts but after seeing the Mech Test version, you never know. They could easily add plating to go over the Racing Suit to provide the skeletal that Tony could step into and not do this release any harm. They could throw a midtransformation head into it too for the original Mark V owners...

Geil
12-31-2010, 01:56 AM
No need for another headsculpt really but throwing in the race suit would have made it a little easier to swallow the price but HT knows they got us by the balls so since I got two I will need two of these to buy their freedom back.

Same Price as a MK VI, wow that's ridiculous

It's a great looking figure, but what good is the briefcase with out Stark in the Driving suit? And they did not have to pay for Downey Jr's likeness rights, so why the high price?
Nice figure, but an opportunity to make this the best Iron Man yet has been missed in my opinion

this is the one time I can see the case of it being that they probably wouldn't be able to re-sell it with a repaint (minus a con EX). oh well, the price makes me not worry too much about not getting it:lol

Definitly one of the best Hot toys IM armor so far !
It was also one of the most anticipate, it may be a reason why the price is that high.

They should have not bothered with the hall of armors stand seeing as it's a briefcase when he's not wearing it.

Would've been great with a race suit for a seperate truetype body, that way people could utilize existing RDJ sculpts from previois iron man figures to add further mix-and-match options, i'm loving tnis though, battle damaged arm looks awesome :yess:

Oh how i wish HT could release figures about a month or two after the full reveal, the hype and endless wait kills me every time, think about it we wont get this till mid-next year

Looks awesome but I would like a RDJ head. I agree that the MIV head would be sweet. It's also really cool to see we are getting one of the light up bases.
Are we getting these stands with the MVI?

Eamon, Right not I would say that it does not have the hall of armor stand. Under the official listing it says:

- An extra special figure stand with damaged navy drone surroundings

It would be awesome if they would give us both and drop the basic stand with name plate but that's probably a long shot.:pray:

Eamon, Right not I would say that it does not have the hall of armor stand. Under the official listing it says:

- An extra special figure stand with damaged navy drone surroundings


That sounds like the Mark VI stand.

Looks great ..i can just imagine my Ironman 2 collection complete in my detolf now ..VI and warmachine raised up on risers to the back with V and Whiplash on front of them in the middle row,and then Iv at the very front holding his helmet , it will look like a V sort of shape:)

If it's true that he's going to cost as much as the Mark VI then this is going to have to be a pass for me. With no headsculpt and only a couple battle-damaged parts, as nice as it is this figure shouldn't cost more than $160.

It would be awesome if they would give us both and drop the basic stand with name plate but that's probably a long shot.:pray:

it would be awesome if they gave us the parts to make a Navy Drone

cant help but think of bandai s.i.c. figs when seeing this. battle damaged arm looks really good. neck should be shortened though, and waist area widened. when seeing a mark suit, i always imagine the person inside it. and tony stark must have a giraffe neck by the look of this mark suit.

im with you on this one, i was pretty disappointed with this due to the lack of movie accurate damage, i mean where is the neck damage from when the whip is around iron mans neck thats the pose i wanted to do.
and if your planning on reenacting the part where the mark 5 grabs the whip "like they show" then it really does need more damage.
then also there is no hidden weapons or any more accessories and no RDJ head.... if this really is the same price as the mark 6 i will be worried for what hot toys will start charging us for a plain figure with minimal accessories (black widow).
If hot toys raise their prices and everyone still buys them then it will be like when the government increases taxes and nobody says anything and just pays it anyway and then the government (hot toys in this situation) will just raise them again until only the rich can afford to enjoy themselves.
:panic:
this is me panicking that the one hobby i have may become too expensive for me to continue.

In order to be "movie accurate", this figure should have more battled damage "scars" on the armor... c'mon!!!!!
Just watch movie...
The battle damage on this figure reflects the first two hits Tony took from Whiplash and is in fact movie accurate. While he did take significantly more damage after that, the figure doesn't have to reflect ALL of the damage to be accurate.

so why the high price?

Well the answer probably is that its a one and done figure, whereas the Mark IV and the Mark VI both share a basic body that could be utilized twice with components swapped out to create each one. The Mark V doesn't have that possibility. I have a feeling had they not made the Mark IV that the Mark VI would be higher than it was. War Machine keeps costs low because everyone is assuming the reusage of the base body for a BD version.

I hate to see the price of the Marks for Iron Man 3 or even The Avengers.

I know that HT has done a wonderful job and I must say HT dominates this Niche market. And let be realistic and we are the one buying HT products make HT grows better.
That being said I just start feeling HT is taking advantage of this niche market and the leader in providing collectibles.

Another example is this figure. It shouldn't cost this much. And as much as I love and been waiting for this figure the suitcase won't make the set movie accurate. The light up stand as well. Instead HT can give Tony head.

The worst part is that I still want to buy this figure after all those flaws. I personally don't need Tony Head. Just need more battle damage parts.

This is maybe the best armor IMO.

Maybe we all should make petition so HT will be more considerate in setting price and giving up accessories? :)

Looks great overall! I'm not a big fan of the battle damage look for the suits but this one looks great IMO. Screen accurate or not...still looks great and I would probably display him that way.

I'm going to wait for my IV to show up before I decide. That suit might just allow me to move on to other HT's licenses that they showed at the expo that I'm interested in.

Can't wait to see someone put a Tony together with the briefcase though! :yess:

They should have not bothered with the hall of armors stand seeing as it's a briefcase when he's not wearing it.

One could argue by including it they are giving long time collectors a chance to include it with older releases to mimic that design. May not use it for the Mark V but I can see people using it with their Mark II or II or even Mark I.

I understand that people are trying to save money. God knows Im not wealthy but people really need to get serious. There is a ton of work that goes into making these "toys". This figure has really nothing in common from any other figure. Its a total ground up figure. That is a very expensive to do and the price is going to reflect that. Its not like some of the others that are basically a head and some clothes. This total R&D from start to finish. If we want these complex, one off figures, we are going to have to pay the price. This hobby is just going to get more and more expensive. Get ready for it.

Did you just get here from 2007? Everything you've said has been said countless times before. Doesn't make the price sting any less. And I'm sure that even after all the R&D and manufacturing costs are tallied, Hot Toys is still making a considerable profit margin on these. That being said, if it's true that the MKV will cost about the same as the MKIV instead of the MKVI (as OMG possibly mistakenly said), then that's not too bad.

This pricing argument came up many times and is mostly valid. Just not accepting it or ignoring it will not "will" it away. Most forget if HT only sold through TH retail in this volume then yes cost differences in R&D could be easily absorbed. But since this is going through networks of sales channels where everyone in between is making money of us including shipping companies then it's a different story. When production cost increases by $10 the going rate is that the retail price will go up by $40. This being a complete build ground up it will simply cost more. Also remember making new outfits has not significant setup cost. Reusing molds from existing parts e.g. Weapons etc omits that cost as well. Throwing in the light up base is cheapest way to add value and many demanded similar move for MvI. But what other accessory can there be that is cost effective. Nobody knows the true R&D and setup cost. Nobody knows the true number of units it can spread itself out across. But ignoring this simple fact and the cost of retail is I guess the luxury of the consumer.

Understandably it's a difficult discussion to have because we don't know all the details. We can only infer from whatever info we can scrounge from this forum and maybe the infrequent wholesale price leaks. As much as I wish they would, Hot Toys does not disclose their production numbers for each release.

Again, all the hubbub came from the original claim that the MKV would cost as much as the MarkVI, which is considerably pricier than the MarkIV.

This!! :exactly: As i said in the T800 (T-1) and Mk. IV thread, once these start hitting prices hitting $200 at retail, thats when you have to start feeling a little weary of spending that money. Once 1/6 figs are the almost the same price of an 1/4 statue, thats the breaking point i think for me.


Honestly. This hobby is bad. Worse hobby I ever had in terms of financial impact. But also the best hobby ever giving me the most enjoyment for the buck.


:exactly: There's nothing that can replicate the feeling of buying these figs, especially when they tap in to your childhood memories, especially with all the new licences announced next year (Indy, Batman 89':yess:) but damn these things are seriously plastic crack. All of us always gotta get our fix.


That being said Mk. V looks awesome, but that price better be around the Mk. IV because its so odd to me to see how fast these prices rise these days on the 2nd market, so it's kinda like "get it now, or you'll be screwed later on". And i'd hate to see how much it would cost on there.

It only comes with TWO switch-out parts, compared to about a dozen with the Mark VI. Plus, there is no licensed headsculpt with the Mark V. For those two reasons, this figure should be no less than $30 cheaper than the Mark VI.

In this very thread there are multiple posts that no matter the cost they will buy (some will buy multiple). If another 10 or 20 dollars is no big deal then it goes to reason that 30 or 40 won't be a big deal either. If I ran HT or SS and saw the consumer base posting things like that you bet yer ass I'd raise the price accordingly too. At least with HT they are constantly raising the bar while raising their prices(please stop using rubber!!!!!), while in SS's case they have been delivering product that should fail QC, but the QC department is just a sticker that everyone gets

Centrocal
12-31-2010, 05:43 PM
I think the main reason for the price,is that they can only sell this body once and they want to get back the money they put into it. With mark 4 or something like the new Predators body, they are getting multiple products so its worth the investment.

On the official Iron Man 2 game on the mission where you have to wear the Mark V armour I swear it cannot do sustained flight on short bursts, I haven't played it since May so I'm a bit fuzzy but I'm sure that was a limitation of the suit.

Well I wouldn't go with those prices, because I PO MKIV at Urban Collector for $162 I think and MKVI for $181. AlterEgo also had the same price.

You do realize that both Urban Collector and Alter Ego get their stock from Sideshow and offer on almost every order a discount of 10 -15% right? Someone asked about the pricing possibility from SSC not from their Authorized Dealers. You'll definitely be able to pick this up from other sellers for slightly cheaper but then you'll have to decide what is more important to you getting it cheaper or faster?

I wish they'd not included the hall of armor stand and flying post; neither item has any relation to the Mark V seeing as how it doesnt fly (in the movie) and isn't displayed in the hall of armor. I'm a big fan of accessories but those two things are just there to help justify the steep price in my opinion.

Actually considering how they reuse that same mold over and over I would say at this point it doesn't really impact the pricing at all. Not to mention that I suspect that the inclusion of the Hall of Armors stand was to give one to the collector who has the older releases and wants to place it there, to help create that look.

The pricepoint on this is at its level because realistically its a one and done figure where the others have retooling possibilties.

Its important to note however that sideshow only ships their stuff a week or two before alter ego and cornerstore; thats an important consideration when it means saving $20-$30 per figure. Toys2 on the other hand can and has shipped figures months before sideshow gets them, so the added cost is justified if you're in a hurry.

This is true, somewhat relative to your area but true. For me a Sideshow Direct order takes two days. Whereas an order from AlterEgo takes over a week. Orders from East Coast shops and dealers like Midtown Comics for example routinely take almost two weeks. I'm sure depending on where you are the time transits are all relative. Either way it should be noted that an AD will take a matter of weeks from a Sideshow direct AND that some times if you go a non-exclusive item like this would be there are times were the AD gets them first. I remember that whole debacle with the Sideshow Star Wars figures early last year.

I don't mind the extra week or two wait to save $20 a figure. If you always want it early and intend to buy 5 or more Hot Toys a year, one can save a good chunk of change. Also Toy2 is out of the question for me, because of the shipping charge to the lower U.S.

The grey parts are really quite dull, aren't they? Instead of being a shiny metallic paint they look like dull grey plastic. A chrome reflective finish on the grey parts would really push this figure over the top; without that, it just doesn't quite have the high-end collectible look it ought to have to justify the asking price.

Less than a year ago the Mark III battle-damaged figure cost the same and had intricate gadgets and features from head to toe, plus a head sculpt. All this guy has are two battle-damaged parts and the standard light up points. And so Hot Toys trend of less for more continues, sadly.

Better call the WHAAAMBULANCE!!

The BD Mk. 3 was a rework of an existing figure, remember.
The enormous cost of designing, engineering, and manufacturing a completely new figure was already absorbed by the original Mk.3. The opening hlemet & headsculpt were recycled from the Mk. 2.
The BD version merely had a new paint job and more armor gimmicks.

The Mk. 5 is similarly a newtype figure, with no chance for a retooling or reuse on any future figs. The molds for this baby are a one-off.

This major fact, combined with inflation, rising production costs in China, and the tanking of the US dollar as global currency is why the price point. Hot Toys isn't going the way of Hasblow any time soon.

I think its actually the other way around. The cost to produce this is just high so only way to make it seem more value added is to add stuff they can add with little added cost. What other accessory can they add that is still remotely relevant without adding up the cost much further but this stand? Besides so many have been asking for this stand to be included in other Marks so you can't just dismiss that voice. I think you should just go ahead and sell the stand if you don't have a use for it.

I think you're right. What I don't understand though is why the hall of armor stand doesn't come with the Mark VI instead, where it would actually make sense. Personally if they need to throw in recycled parts to justify the steep price I would have loved to get the Mark IV head sculpt and an appropriately-fitting neck.

Though casting the headsculpt from an existing mould should be just as easy the headsculpt paint job certainly is much more costly as it requires a skilled operator. I have 4 of the light up stands and the finish is actually not good on all of them even if its just a simple paint job so that tells me they really have "grades" of operators getting paid differently and hence cost differs significantly. Oh yeah the stands are probably painted in one large run but the heads are still individually painted

Even with Hot Toys recent bodies who do have an opportunity to be rereleased (War Machine, Berserker Predator), they're giving collectors less accessories/features and charging more. And as popular as the Iron Man series is, Hot Toys can make up for the cost in sheer quantity. Sure there's more production cost in developing a figure like this, but they'll likely sell thousands of them as opposed to a few hundred assassin's creed figures.

My classic Predator from two years ago was conceivably a single-release figure, yet only cost $165 and came loaded with countless features, accessories, intricate parts, and even a custom base. And like that figure, Hot Toys could always do some unique event-exclusive re-release of the Mark V body, and likely will. Throw in an open helmet with a recycled head sculpt and some bonus battle-damaged parts and people would pay $700 for the thing.

You make some great points, but I would ask---aren't those Predator molds reused from fig to fig quite a bit?

My point earlier being that body types unique to one fig (like IMs, Hellboy, Briareos, etc.) always cost more to reflect their R&D costs.

Without specific accesories & paintjobs, the Pred figures seem pretty generic to me.

Nah. Just the calf doors. Same molds elsewhere.

Specifically the hip joint was modified. Same molds elsewhere.


the torso was all new to allow the removable chest armor, plating underneath

Same molds as before. The way the chest was assembled was different. The BD chest mold was new.


the flaps on the back were all new

Nah. They added metal flaps in lieu of silver paint, but same molds on the plastic as before.


and the lower arms were all new to allow the arm gauntlet and new arm rocket

Again, they redesigned the arm rocket for more screen accuracy (and added forearm flip-out gimmick), but the molds that make up the arm are the same.

Again, my point being a lot of engineering and mold-casting could be carried over, thus keeping costs down.
Not everything! You've got some points. But it's not a totally new body, like say a Berserker.


And as popular as the Iron Man series is, Hot Toys can make up for the cost in sheer quantity. Sure there's more production cost in developing a figure like this, but they'll likely sell thousands of them as opposed to a few hundred assassin's creed figures.

The licensing fee for Iron Man (which includes rights to RDJ's likeness) is likely substantially higher than that for video game character Ezio.

Again, these costs get passed onto the consumer.

And HT's production run of an IM figure will never be high enough to meet worldwide demand. Look at the aftermarket values on those suckers.

Many of them are yes, but the classic predator to which I'm referring was all new from the ground up, apart from the skull trophy accessory. And that body, head and armor got reused only for the event-exclusive Gort Predator, so when they originally created and priced the figure there was no outlet for repurposing the figure. Youre suggesting that the pricing of the Mark V reflects Hot Toys inability to recycle the figure, and if that were completely true then classic predator, and many other one-offs should have cost far more than they did and figures like Berserker Predator whom they can reuse 3 times should cost far less. But instead, everything now costs more whether Hot Toys can milk 2-3 releases out of the body or not.

I mean if you understand the mechanics of the suit then it's pretty obvious that having a head sculpt is out of the question.

The suits mechanism is like a domino one step is followed by the next there is no stopping it so it's not possible for the suit to stop just before it goes around the head.

I'd definitely get a Tony figure, with open suit case and just half of the armor mid transformation. But it should have been included with this.

I'm sure someone will make a custom race suit at some point, It would be nice if HT just produced it and sold it with a headless Truetype.

I have seen a few custom race suits which are pretty good but not at the quality I expect HT would do

too bad its a lot of work and hence not likely to sell as an extension pack for cheap like the Jericco suit but I would take whatever they throw me. the track dio I dont see difficulty in at all. getting 1/6 F1 debris is the problem

Better still, leave out an extra base altogether and drop the price by $10.

nah. i can afford that. give us the racetrack base and charge us $10 extra :D

This is not out of the question. I could see this possibly happening although I thought we'd see a race suit with the MKV, like DX Police Joker.

Still, it's pretty awesome as is.

Yeah that's a great looking figure, having him next to Whiplash would be awsome. Would love to get this but I'm gonna have to settle for War Machine & the VI from IM2. To much I want this year all ready.

Just preordered from BBTS.

Glad this finally is getting released; at least it's visually striking and it'll break up the MK IV and VI.

I love these Iron Man figures. Too bad they are so hard to find in Canada, and a lot of US companies seem unwilling to ship them due to teh overall value of the figures.

The Mark 1 is still the best one imo.

$199.99?

I'll wait til CornerStoreComics gets theirs. BBTS also has the Mk.VI on preorder for $199.99 and CSC has it for $188.99.

CSC will most likely have the Mk.V for $188.99 too.

Probably. And that's about $20 too much.

I agree, Mark V is the most expensive of all the suits that came out for IM2 so far..i remember MarkIV & War-Machine were $179.99 & this guy is at $189.99 strait up then when the release date nears he's gonna jump another $10
