Iron Man Mark VII ‘Diecast’ The Avengers Figure revealed as MMS 500.. up for Pre-Order!Paul
Collectors might have been curiously asking themselves what Hot Toys has in-store for it’s 500th entry in the Movie Masterpiece Series and today they answered that question & revealed MMS 500: Iron Man Mark VII ‘DIECAST’ as seen in The Avengers. This is a diecast remake of the Mark VII armor and the latest addition to the ‘DIECAST’ line-up of one sixth scale figures that was previously released by Hot Toys a few years ago.
This is an iconic suit that is well-loved by fans of both Iron Man and The Avengers with a more masculine and distinct exterior design with a nice balance of red, gold and silver. In addition to the heavy duty diecast construction (Hot Toys diecast figures feel very heavy & solid in your hand) this new figure features a newly painted head sculpt of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, an interchangeable helmet with LED light-up functionality, interchangeable pieces for both forearm and shoulder weapon armor elements and much more. And for the first time ever Hot Toys is including a ‘suit pod mode’ add-on that looks a little… interesting? It seems like Hot Toys is looking to explore making more accessories with this announcement and the recent Nano tech accessories for Mark L that was revealed @ SDCC 2018. Either way, with a slightly higher price point than previous figure releases it’s nice to see more stuff being included to justify the hike.
The evolution of Iron Man figures over the last few years by Hot Toys has been nothing short of astounding. While previous early releases still stand up to most other collectibles today it’s very apparent that improvements are being made on a regular basis. A side-by-side comparison of the first Mark VII release from Hot Toys versus this upcoming ‘DIECAST’ version illustrates the difference and that’s without even being able to touch & feel the material changes:
You can see at first glance that while the price on Hot Toys one sixth scale figures has increased over the last few years so too has the quality of these figures. If a company continues to make investments in research and development, improves on manufacturing processes and builds on what they were previously offering it’s tough to complain about a price increase. At the end of the day, when cost increases some of that has to be passed on to the consumer. That way we can continue to enjoy high quality releases from Hot Toys for years to come!
