Iron Man Is ready For Launch In His Mark XLIII Armor Thanks To Sideshow CollectiblesJose Lopez
Over 10 years of films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and there are only three misfires, in my opinion. There is Iron Man 2, of course, and The Incredible Hulk. The third, which most will likely disagree with me on, is the second installment of Avengers, Age of Ultron. I mention all of this because I want you to understand that I have no nostalgia connected to Iron Man’s Mark XLIII armor from the film, yet it was and continues to be one of my favorite looks for the Golden Avenger. So nothing makes me happier than finding out that Sideshow Collectibles has announced the pre-order for a new maquette of the iconic suit of armor.
Standing at a whopping 20 inches tall, this Iron Man has never looked better. There’s something about the pointed combination of the metallic red, gold and silver that makes this armor pop in a way that really stands out from the pack for me. Sideshow’s painters and sculptors have managed to bring out those colors and the details of the suit excellently. I cannot wait to inspect this piece in hand.
While I would have personally preferred a flying pose or something a little more dynamic for this statue, I think the stance they have Iron Man in is suitably imposing. The LED light-up effects in his eyes, arc reactor and repulsor blasters definitely mitigates my nitpickiness.
While I never enjoyed Age of Ultron, I cannot wait to celebrate my favorite Iron Man armor from the MCU with this new Sideshow maquette on my shelf.
The Sideshow Collectibles Iron Man Mark XLIII Maquette is available for pre-order now and is slated to release Q3, 2021.
“Sideshow presents the Iron Man Mark XLIII Maquette, created in partnership with Legacy Effects to deploy an impressive addition to your universe of Marvel collectibles.
