Roll your Bones, Hot Toys has a new retro Iron Man figure on the way

Iron Man Bones (12)

I once owned one of the Hot Toys Sixth-scale replica Iron Man figures for a glorious few days, before allowing it to fly off and land in the collection of a more deserving and hirsute fellow (Hi Garth!). As much as I’d have loved to keep that gorgeous cherry-red Silver Centurion Iron Man, I was also wary of a certain fear that I had for those figures. I call it the Pringles Phobia, because one you start popping them into your collection you’re never ever going to stop.

With dozens of various Iron Man armours on the market right now from Hot Toys, that’s a fear that became all too real. It’s not that they’re cool, but rather that I know I’ll wind up selling my dignity at local harbours just so that my OCD tendencies can collect the entire House Party protocol. A flaw in myself that I had to rectify as quickly as possible, and which I’m keeping an eye out for again as Hot Toys have announced a newish Iron man figure for the collection.

It’s essentially the Mark 41 Bones armour with fresher colours, or in the paraphrased words of Waylon Smithers: He’s got a new hat! Check it out below:

I love how the party trick of this armour is that it happens to have been programmed by the Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Sideshow Collectibles don’t have a price or release date just yet, but I’d expect to pay around $280 for this figure when it eventually launches.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    Meh.. this is the one you want.

    • Viper_ZA

      Very very nice, but $1200 :O

    • I dig it…BUT(t) I’ve never been that big a fan of statues. I prefer posing my figures personally.

    Hi Darryn!

    Bones is on my want list. I like the colours of this, but I quite like the original Bones look, the colours just work to show how different an armour it is.
