Iron Man toys are a dime a dozen. I can’t even walk into a Pick n Pay these days without seeing a certain armoured avenger and his Movember face. But a toy based on the villainous Obadiah Stane and his armoured getup from the first film? That’s rarer than the word “compound” on a SABC news report. But finally, for anyone who has always wanted to own a big Lebowski action figure, that was bald and smothered in armour, here it is!
A 1:6 scale figure, the Iron Monger from Hot Toys is a 3kg behemoth that stands at a height of 45cm. Packed with articulation, gadgets and extras, Jeff Bridges here will cost you $479.99 when he arrives this month, or around R4280.
Yes, I’m biting my fist with regards to that price, and if I had the cash, I’d gladly pay it.
