We’ve already seen Tony’s new Hulkbuster armor in the trailer for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ but I hope you didn’t think that was the only suit of armor he was going to be wearing in the upcoming film. While Marvel has not yet shown off any full footage of the suit yet, I have to say it is entertaining that a toy company is the one who is ending up spoiling his new look. This was how we found out about what some of the ‘Jurassic World‘ dinosaurs looked like before the studios asked to have the images removed and why we didn’t have baby Dancing Groot toys prior to the release of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ earlier as James Gunn didn’t want the prototype to spoil the end of the film from a leak.
This time, however, the images comes from an official release from Hot Toys and really can’t be considered a “leak.”
Below is the new look of the Mark XLIII armor that has been created for ‘Age of Ultron.’ I’ll include the description followed by the images after the following warning in case you want to find out more when it first appears on either a commercial or the big screen.
The extremely-anticipated, Avengers: Age of Ultron, is only a few months away! Our favorite superhero team is assembled again when Tony Stark’s peacekeeping program goes awry and it is up to the Avengers to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans…
To get fans ready for this super exciting film, Hot Toys is thrilled to jump start the Avengers: Age of Ultron collectible series by presenting the 1/6th scale Mark XLIII Collectible Figure! It is also the newest addition to our MMS Diecast Series which the collectible figures are made of diecast material, and realistically designed to look even more like the armor as it appears in the blockbuster.
The movie-accurate Mark XLIII Collectible Figure is highly detailed and specially crafted based on the image of Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark/Mark XLIII in Avengers: Age of Ultron, featuring a newly painted Tony Stark helmeted head sculpt, metallic red, gold and silver armor with weathered effects, LED light-up functions, and a specially designed diorama base with a damaged Ultron Mark I. A special edition will be available for selected markets which includes a LED lighted battle damaged helmet as bonus accessory.
I’m loving the new look, it has subtle differences from the previous ones and looks amazing. What are your thoughts on how Tony will be suiting up in his next outing with The Avengers?
Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
