New S.H. Figuarts Tony Stark Action Figure Being Developed
The S.H. Figuarts Tony Stark Action Figure Just Went Up For Pre-Order
Bandai Tamashii Nations is developing a new S.H. Figuarts Tony Stark action figure. So, what’s so special about it? There are numerous figures of Iron Man and some of them aren’t much different from each other. This one is great because it actually depicts Tony Stark, not Iron Man, as seen in Iron Man 3. And although some might consider Iron Man 3 to be a part of the distant past since it came out so long ago (3 years), it’s great to see that manufacturers are not just focusing on what’s new and popular.
The figure will be 6 inches tall (~15 cm) and feature full articulation. The likeness between the figure’s sculpt and Robert Downey Jr. is great while the paint was done using digital coloring technology to increase the overall quality. The figure includes swap out armored forearms and lower legs. A power stage display is included for posing, so you can recreate all your favorite scenes with Tony Stark being a genius, playboy, billionaire, and philanthropist, and not just another Iron Man figure.
This amazing figure is only the first one based on the movies as more are in development. For now, we know that there is also a planned Iron Man Mark 3 suit, from the first movie made and 2 other mystery figures about which we know nothing.
Pre-order for this the S.H. Figuarts Tony Stark action figure has just begun on Tamashii Nations’ website, but be careful when purchasing as the entire website is in Japanese. The price is set at 6,480 Yen, which is about $60, which seems like a deal considering the overall quality of the figures in the S.H. Figuarts line. An estimated release date was set for October 2016.
And be sure to check their website from time to time for more information about the mystery future Iron Man themed figures.
