S.H. Figuarts Iron Patriot and Iron Man Mark 42 Figures take flight this fall
When Iron Man 3 took to the big screen last year, it quickly soared into the top 10 grossing films ever. The previous Iron Man movies built our expectations extremely high, but overall I would say the movie was a disappointment to many. Though because the movie was so successful, toy companies around the world have picked up the license anyways. Bandai has announced S.H. Figuarts Iron Patriot and Iron Man Mark 42 figures, which should be taking flight (shipping) by September.
Previous Tamashii Nations Iron Man releases were absolutely stunning, so fans should expect the same quality standard for the Mark 42 and Iron Patriot figures. Both of the figures stand about 6.1″ tall and come with interchangeable hands and various effect pieces. If you are lucky enough to score a pre-order for the first production run of the Iron Man Mark 42 figure, you will also get a 1/12 scale sofa from the movie, allowing you to recreate the scene where the Mark 42 greets Pepper Potts while sitting on the couch.
Once these figures start to pop up on North American websites, you should expect the price to be around $55. It may seem expensive, but this is still considerably cheaper than Play Imaginative’s take on a 6 inch Mark 42.
