Since it's introduction in Iron Man 3, the Starboost armor (or the Mark 39) has stood out to Iron Man fans around the world. Its cool space like design with a mixture of white, gold, and black colors have helped it become a fan favorite among all of the suits introduced in Iron Man 3's "House Party Protocol". Sideshow Collectibles has surprised everyone today by putting up the Hot Toys Starboost Mark 39 sixth scale figure for pre-order before Hot Toys even announced it on their Facebook page.
The Mark XXXIX Sub-Orbital Suit features white, gold, and black colored armor with an embossed pattern, two gold-colored face masks, LED light-up functions and figure stand with flexible pillar for dynamic posing. This is one of the figures that a true Iron Man fan is really going to have a hard time passing on.
At the tail end of 2013 Hot Toys introduced dynamic figure stands, which are available for purchase separately from the previous sixth scale figures that Hot Toys has offered. The Hot Toys Starboost armor is going to be one of the first figures that comes with a dynamic figure stand (with a slightly different base) that you can use to get extreme Iron Man flying poses with.
