Mark 43 (11)

Iron Man has been around for about five decades now. But as a popular character, Iron Man only really burst onto the scene when Marvel nailed the ehro right the first time in the titular 2008 movie. And maybe the suit doesn’t make the man, but it certainly has helped Tony Stark shift plenty of Iron merchandise.

Anyway you look at it, Iron Man just oozes great design. Five feature film appearances have resulted in dozens and dozens of Iron Man armour suits, with the most recent prosthesis being the Mark 43 from Avengers: Age of Ultron. And I think I’ve finally found a version of the suit that will fit me.

First seen in action during the Avengers’ exhilarating raid at the HYDRA research base in the opening scenes of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Mark 43 is Tony Stark’s latest and greatest!

Measuring three feet tall, this impressive maquette is the very definition of screen accurate, created by the same special effects artists who worked on the film, using original assets as reference.

Crafted from polystone, fiberglass, metal and other premium materials, each suit is individually hand finished with a high gloss paint application and brilliant LED light-up features in the eyes, arc reactor, and repulsor units.

Easy to assemble, and displayed on a themed base straight out of Avengers Tower, get ready to bring home the next generation of Stark Industries technology, proven capable of going toe to toe with Ultron, Earth’s greatest adversary yet!

So how much for the replica then? A Stark sum of $2999.99, that’s how much. Yikes. That doesn’t include shipping for this beast, which weighs in at 98lbs or the world-standard unit of 44.45kg.

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!

    45 kilos? Damn! Looks really cool though…

    I MUST HAVE THIS STATUE IN MY HOUSE!

    The mark 43 is pretty cool as far as his suits go.
    I didn’t like the one from Iron Man 2 much with the triangular chest piece (regardless how terrible the movie was).
    The first one is still the coolest though.

    • I kinda dig the Mark IV, but my favourite suit out of the lot has to be the Gemini space exploration armour.

        *googles*
        Okay, yea, that’s pretty awesome.

    Getting closer and closer to life sized statues.
