Hot Toys Pepper Potts ‘Rescue Suit’ Pre-Order is Live!

Over the last three weeks there’s no doubt that most Hot Toys collectors got a look at one of the many pictures of the Pepper Potts “Rescue Suit” that Hot Toys had on display at a number of the toy shows and conventions throughout Hong Kong promoting Avengers: Endgame. After that iconic scene in the film with Tony Stark and Pepper Potts back-to-back suited up and annihilating the minions of Thanos, collectors have been eagerly waiting to get a complete look at the Hot Toys prototype pictures and full pricing details for this sixth scale figure. The figure officially went up for Pre-Order today in both Hong Kong and other regions of the world including here in North America and comes with a price tag very similar to what we have come to expect from the Diecast Iron Man figures – $399.99 USD.

That price tag might seem a little jarring at first considering that as a character Pepper Potts definitely does not have the popularity that Iron Man does but it’s a matter of production cost here. This figure is apart of the “Diecast” line of figures by Hot Toys which if you have never had a chance to touch or feel in person before have quite a weight to them. You can really feel the quality in the materials used and it gives the figure an added level of realism since the material is a lot closer to what the actual Iron Man armors would be built out of. That’s not to knock the classic plastic Iron Man Hot Toys figures that started it all but there’s a reason that the retail cost of the diecast Iron Man Hot Toys figures is higher than that of the older releases. Whether or not that increased price-tag is something you as a Hot Toys collector are willing to swallow is another question entirely. Despite price criticisms of recent Diecast Iron Man Hot Toys releases they continue to remain the highest of demand of any Hot Toys figure and consistently sell out and increase in value on the secondary market.

Pepper Potts “Rescue” (Hot Toys) Diecast Sixth Scale Figure

With all the changes coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Phase 4 it’s left to be seen if we will ever even see Pepper Potts make an appearance again. With Tony Stark making an exit stage left anything is possible but my gut says this isn’t the last we have seen of this suit or the character. The fact that Tony Stark left a kid behind was the beginning of something in terms of the story development even if it’s many years away yet so it’s likely if or when that character makes an appearance we will see Pepper Potts, too. The only other version of the character that Hot Toys has ever produced in sixth scale figure form is the release of Iron Man & Pepper Potts from one of the standalone Iron Man films and she looked too much like a barbie doll for my liking. While this new Hot Toys Rescue Suit version does not include a head sculpt of the character that’s not something as a collector I am going to miss. The inclusion of the sculpt with the helmet open is what we saw on-screen in Avengers: Endgame anyway so that’s enough for me. Here’s a look at what’s included with the figure:
