Next Hot Toys Diecast Figures Are Whiplash Mark II and Iron Man Mark XLII (Mark 42)

If you are an Iron Man fan then your life just keeps getting better and better. The March issue of Figure King from Japan reveals the next couple of diecast figures that Hot Toys will be releasing. The┬áNext Hot Toys Diecast Figures Are Whiplash Mark II and Iron Man Mark XLII (Mark 42). I’m not sure about what order they will be released in or when they will officially be revealed, but they are going to be coming soon that’s for sure. They will fit in nicely with the recently revealed Hot Toys Diecast Iron Patriot 12 inch figure.

UPDATE: See comments

The details on Whiplashes armor is absolutly mind blowing, but I suppose that you will be paying for it with the increased prices due to the use of diecast. I don’t really know how many people are going to be attracted to the diecast series besides die-hard Iron Man fans due to the high cost of the figure. Hot Toys has done a pretty good job at making the plastic on thier recent figures look like metal anyways. I don’t really see a need for diecast.

What really needs to happen is I need to get one of these new 12 inch diecast figures in my hand so that I can feel him up. (no not like that.) Maybe once I get one in hand I will be convinced that diecast is the only way to go, but until then I won’t be convinced. Why buy 1 expensive figure why I can buy 2 or 3 cheaper figures?

The Iron Man Mark XLII (Mark 42) 12″ figure doesn’t have nearly as many details as whiplash, so I would expect him to be far cheaper in price. One thing I do like about him though is the fact that all of his joints are pretty well hidden. How much more real could we ask for?
